In keeping with our belief that hands-on learning is the best way to learn, conducting workshops in college is a natural corollary. Workshops are conducted in several ways:
- By the Project Coordinators of Research projects: An unwritten rule (nay, understanding) is that all PI's will provide for some training of undergraduate students either through allowing them to do projects in their laboratories or through conducting training workshops. These are usually in summer.
- By Faculty in Departments: When the faculty feel that in any particular subject area teaching can be augmented through dedicated hand-on workshops these are conducted by teachers along with resource persons from the industry/ University. We include the annual Electrawork and Biology workshops under this head.
- Basic Computer Skill training: These are for freshers who are not computer-friendly. Since it is important that all students are enabled to use the Web Facilitation Centre and have basic computer skills, this training workshop is held in the month of July-August for new students who register for the course.
- Workshop on curriculum to refresh teachers: When the new B.Sc Programme in Life Science was introduced, teachers felt that hands-on workshops were essential for teachers. Acharya Narendra Dev College was called upon to conduct such a workshop in Biology for teachers across the University who teach Part III. Whenever new syllabi are implemented such workshops would be order of the day.
