IIT Remote Centre Programme

IIT Bombay Remote Center has been stated at Thakur College of Engineering and Technology on 11th May 2012. The workshops are funded by the National Mission on Education through ICT MHRD; Government of India there is no course fee for participation.

The objective of this initiative is that every Indian learner deserves to be given a chance to have the highest quality education. Scarcity of trained teachers critically hinders this national desire. This project envisions empowerment of teachers, through workshops conducted for thousands of teachers at one go, using a unique blend of technology and an innovative pedagogy.

The expected outcome from Remote Center is the enhancement in the understanding of teachers in respective course and improvement in class room teaching, use of new technologies and tools to further enhance the educational experience. It is also expected to enhance use of open source contents, technologies and tools for laboratory use.

Till date the Remote Center has conducted 16 workshops. Mainly the participants for the workshop are our institute faculties as well as the Engineering faculties from all over India. We have also conducted the workshops for engineering students.
