A three day-long Faculty Orientation and Training Program for Fall 2018 was held at North South University (NSU) on September 15-17, 2018, jointly organized by the Office of Graduate Studies (OGS) and the Institutional Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC). The orientation programme was attended by 40 new faculty members from 14 departments, says a press release.
At the beginning of the orientation programme, Director of OGS, Prof. Dr. Sharif Nurul Ahkam and Director of IQAC, Dr. Nazmun Nahar delivered the welcome address to the new faculty members. Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Atiqul Islam in his speech underscored the importance of faculty training programmes and discussed about the roles and responsibilities of a teacher. Pro-Vice Chancellor (Designate) Professor Dr. G.U. Ahsan appreciated the joint effort made by the IQAC and the OGS for organising this type of orientation. He also took part in the deliberations and discussed the concepts of effective teaching and faculty development.
In the span of three days, there were different sessions focusing on administrative rules and regulations at NSU, teaching and research philosophy, effective teaching and assessment methodology, Outcome Based Education (OBE) and curriculum development, Bloom's taxonomy, faculty code of conduct, ways of dealing with students, and matters related to discrimination and harassment. There was a special segment on the usage of library resources and IT services at NSU.
Moreover, there was an interactive session in which the faculty members were divided into groups and were asked to develop and present demo-course outlines focusing on Outcome Based Education strategy. The programme ended with vote of thanks from the directors; the participants also thanked NSU authority for such an initiative.
