Remote Center

GRIET Remote Centre (RC-1080)

            The “Teach 1000 Teachers” programme was initiated by IIT Bombay in 2009 under the project, “Empowerment of Students/Teachers,” sponsored by NMEICT (MHRD.) The main aim of this programme is to work with Engineering Colleges in the country to enhance the teaching skills of faculty colleagues in core Engineering and Science subjects. The “Teach 1000 Teachers” uses an ICT enabled process involving both synchronous and asynchronous mode to actually reach out and engage a large number of teachers, and through them, a much larger number of students. Under the programme, IIT Bombay conducts two-week ISTE workshops during the vacation period in summer and winter. Live lectures are given by IIT faculty. The participating teachers attend at a remote centre close to their own college, and also attend tutorial and lab sessions conducted in the same centre. The lecture transmission and live interaction takes place through distance mode using the AVIEW technology and the internet, at selected remote centres across the country. Faculty coordinators are appointed at each remote center, to handle the technology infrastructure and other operational logistics. Additionally, for each workshop, there is a workshop faculty coordinator for that subject who will help in the conduct of labs and tutorials at that center.  All the lectures and tutorial sessions are recorded. The final edited audio-visual contents, along with other course material are released under Open Source. These contents can be freely used later by all teachers and students.

            GRIET is proud that it has been nominatedas one of the Remote centres by MHRD-NMEICT in the year 2012. The number of Faculty who had benefited directly or indirectly through these workshops are around 200 members and it is very glorious remarks of our college.
