Amritsar : Educational institutions today are reeling under the pressure to match up their pace to the ever-changing demands being thrust upon by rapid technological changes, agile intergenerational workforce, diverse student population, and greater accountability along with resource constraints. The path ahead looks complex, uncertain and unclear. Educational leaders as pedagogical heads are required to manage the teaching-learning process, establish norms for continuous quality improvement and create a collaborative learning organization. They also play a vital role in defining the cultural DNA of their school. They have to continually shift their focus from reactive to a more proactive strategic response to the challenges ahead.
To tackle this and thrive towards today’s changing world, IIM Amritsar successfully completed the 5- Day long FDP titled “Leading in the Changing Times” under the banner of AICTE Training and Learning (ATAL) Academy, starting from 18th Oct’21 to 22nd Oct’21. The FDP had 200 registered participants from Higher Educational Institutions, Schools, Government and Ed-Tech Industry.
This 5-Day online FDP on Leadership Excellence focuses on the varied issues that the Principals, Deans, Faculty and Teachers grapple within the day-to-day functioning of their schools and colleges. By establishing and interpreting the nature and scope of educational change, this program will definitely make a significant contribution in meeting different challenges faced by them.
This program is facilitated by exceptionally skilled professors from varied prestigious institutions from all over the country like NIEPA, New Delhi, NITTR, Chandigarh, IIT Kharagpur, IIM Vizag and IIM Amritsar. This program aims to improve the adaptability of the Educators to the unprecedented changes happening in the world. This FDP helped IIM Amritsar to strive in its mission project “Project THRIVE” which stands to upskill and train faculty members across the country to create more Transformational, Humanistic, Responsive and Innovative Educators.
