Faculty development programmes are the launch pad for building a successful and satisfying career for academicians and researchers in management and allied areas. Changing market scenario has challenged conventional teaching practices to maintain competitive advantage for organizations. To provide opportunities for professional and career development as per UGC norms, so that faculties may fulfill their role and responsibility within the system of higher education and to enhance their motivational skills and knowledge through systematic orientation in specific topics, techniques and methodologies, thereby, to encourage them to take initiatives for innovative and creative work, FDP department headed by Dr. Ritu Gandhi Arora along with team members Dr. Ashima Tandon, Dr. Parul Nagi and Ms. Kanika was formed. The cell endeavors to contribute to professional development of In house faculty members and of those who are working in various other institutes in India.
Faculty plays a crucial role in training competent future managers in business and non-business organizations. To be effective, we largely follow a participatory approach to learning: case method, small group exercises, simulations, management games, and presentations are also widely used.

The common objectives are:
  • To enhance teaching, learning and evaluation related skills.
  • To acquaint the faculty with innovative methods of teaching-learning
  • To make them acquainted with modern assessment related methodologies
  • To brainstorm them with operational and administrative issues.
  • To help them to overcome stress related issues and achieve work-life balance
  • To give them hands-on experience about the changing technology usage.

  • The cell has organized programmes in various areas of management, information technology and teaching pedagogy on the topics like 360 degree academicians, Creating healthy and rewarding life, Academic Entrepreneur, Re-skilling and Re training, Class Room Management, Appreciative Enquiry, Experiential Learning, Restoring for future, Manifesting Excellence, etc. And during Pandemic lockdown, DAVIM is using E- Learning platforms like Google meet and Webex for webinars on the topics like Restoring for future etc. We will continue to strive to make Faculty Development Programmes a rewarding experience for educators and look forward to organize many more keeping in mind the changing dynamics of the higher education.
