Department of English & Soft Skills organized a one-day workshop for faculty members and research scholars on 24th March 2018. The workshop titled “From Researching to Publishing: A Re-walk 2.0” was led by Dr. Santosh Mahapatra, Assistant Professor at BITS Pilani, Hyderabad.
The resource person introduced the possible ICT tools that can be used in the classrooms to enhance the learning output. Faculty members actively engaged in a discussion in which they shared their classroom experiences and the nature of tools that they use. The resource person provided great insight into the ways in which web 2.0 can effectively operate in language classrooms and how data can be obtained by using them which eventually will help teachers to get engaged in classroom research.
Dr. Santosh spoke in details about action research initiatives the teachers can take up and also detailed the ways in which such research enriches the professional development of the teacher-researcher. He answered the questions posed to him by the research scholars too.
Dr. Karthika V.K. co-ordinated the one-day workshop.
