Faculty Development Programmes

What is Internal Faculty Development Programme?

The programme christened Internal Faculty Development Programme is a scheme whereby every faculty and staff of the Department of Computer Applications benefit from the experiences and knowledge of all others in the Department. Each Programme is a talk of one-hour duration on a topic chosen by the speaker. It could also be hands-on training on popular software packages.These Programmes are held approximately once in a month. The first Programme was held on 14th January 2009. Appropriately, it was a talk on self-improvement by Mr. Dijesh P, Sr. Lecturer,  and he began quoting Abraham Lincoln : "No man is good enough to govern another man without the other man's consent." It was in these Programmes the Department identified problems for the All-Kerala C Coding Contest which is currently running in its second edition. The idea for "Two-day Workshop on Text Processing Using LaTeX" also evolved after Internal Faculty Development Programme sessions on LaTeX were held.
