The Delhi University’s Institute of Life Long Learning is looking to train university teachers in using information and communications technologies. The Institute plans to start workshops for the teachers from the first week of August.

“Our basic is aim is to incorporate information and communications technologies in education,and for that we have to get our teachers onboard so that they are empowered with technological skills,” A K Bakshi,director of the Institute,said.

“We will conduct two 10-day workshops per month,” Bakshi said. The teachers will be divided into two batches. “Depending on the teacher strength in a certain college,we will initially invite a few from each college and train them for ten days. The trained teachers will be called ‘champions’,and will,in turn,train their peers in the same college. We will try to maintain a ratio of one ‘champion’ for every 25 teachers,” he said.

The course will include training in the use of various operating system software and programmes,the use of PowerPoint,Photoshop,basic training in animation,and uploading and developing e-course content. The levels of training will include basic and intermediate levels and will cater to the needs of teachers of various age groups.

“We are in talks with Microsoft for help with this project. If we require training on other operating systems we will invite the companies concerned,” Bakshi said. The Institute is also aiming at capacity building of the teachers,as that would enable them to handle the e-learning gateway that will be launched by ILLL in August.
