Twenty-eight faculty members from 28 different public and private sector universities across Pakistan were certified as master trainers of latest pedagogical and research skills required for effective teaching and research. Engr. Waqar Aziz from Electrical Engineering Department participated in this training program.
The program has been designed to equip teaching faculty with latest pedagogical and research skills required for effective teaching and research. It includes various academic modules with additional sessions on important social topics, with focus on enhancing and enriching teaching abilities of participants.
Speaking on this occasion, HEC Chairman Dr. Mukhtar Ahmed said that teachers are the role models for their students and are academic leaders who play a vital role in development of future generations. “Unless our teacher perform their duty in a responsible manner, we should not expect our society to come out of social ills be it intolerance, religious extremism, dishonesty or any other problem,” the chairman said. He said that Pakistan does not only need best professionals in different fields but also good human beings who show empathy towards fellow humans and work in a selfless manner.
“That is only possible if our teachers and religious opinion leaders feel their responsibility and act accordingly,” Dr. Mukhtar said. Congratulating the participants on successful completion of training, he said that HEC is providing all possible opportunities to faculty members and researchers to enrich their knowledge and skills.
