The Academics Office of Martin Luther Christian University (MLCU) organised a workshop for its faculty on ‘Teaching for Learning on Instructional Design’ last week.
The resource person was Gideon Arulmani, Director of Bengaluru’s The Promise Foundation.
The workshop was necessitated by the changes in the academic milieu and paradigm shift in teaching learning processes, MLCU said in a press release today. The workshop aimed at enabling the university’s faculty with innovative strategies that connect students’ learning outcomes to effective learning activities.
It emphasised the importance of matching learning outcomes with practical learning activities, exploring learner-centred instructional methods and development of teaching-learning materials such as textbooks, flip charts, flash cards and worksheets.
The workshop also highlighted the significance of the hybrid approach to teaching and learning. Lesson plans and teaching aids were developed out of the workshop and, as a follow-up, an exhibition of teaching aids and tool kits to be developed by the faculty will be held in the coming months.
