Faculty Empowerment

Capacity development and skills enhancement initiatives taken by the institution for faculty & staff (FDPs)  
Genesis
There are many types of knowledge, and consequently there are many types of knowledge gaps. The focus of capacity building and skill development program is to bridge the knowledge gap between industry and academia and to abreast the teaching fraternity with the emerging trends, tools and technologies in the market. This gap relates to the knowledge that would allow teachers to implement appropriate practices and policies, develop the necessary infrastructure and participate effectively in the processes that shape the institution.
Process
Poornima University has established Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) in the year 2015 to organize professional and skill development programmes and to encourage teaching and non-teaching to participate in such programmes. IQAC aim is to address the gaps and implement the measures to fill those gaps. IQAC invites external experts to conduct those programs. Internal faculty members are also invited to take some of the session to provide them an opportunity to strengthen their skills. All these programmes are funded by Poornima University to implement them successfully.
