DBCET, Azara Collaborates to Boost National Mission on Education
Guwahati, Jul. 1. DBCET, Azara, which has been the only College selected from the entire Eastern Zone as a remote centre by IIT Bombay to conduct workshops to enhance the teaching skills of faculty in Engineering and Science Subjects, a part of the National Mission on Education through ICT (NMEICT) supported by MHRD, is in its first phase of action. The two-week ISTE workshop on Basic Electronics, commenced on 28 June 2011 has around 1300 participants from various Colleges and Universities across the nation.
DBCET which is one of the 38 institutes joining as remote centres through the internet across India has made every arrangement to give all the possible assistance to around 30 participants. Live lectures are given by IIT faculty from Bombay, and, just like other selected remote centres it facilitates tutorial and lab sessions supervised by the DBCET Faculty Coordinator of the programme, Mr. Bikash Agarwal along with a team of faculty members from the College.  
The course focuses on Semiconductor Physics, Transistor, Feedback Topologies, Operational Amplifiers, Circuits, HDL, Digital Electronics, etc.  These reflect the syllabus adopted by most universities for the subject ``Basic Electronics``. The participating teachers will also be introduced to the IIT style of teaching.
The final edited audio-visual contents, along with other course materials will be released under Open Source and so arrangements are done to record all the lectures and tutorial sessions. These contents can be freely used later by all teachers and students.
One of the participants, Mr. Dipak Das, Technical Officer, Dept. Instrumentation and USIC, Gauhati University said that he is highly impressed by this excellent programme that is practical and oriented towards teaching basics of electronics and wished for many more of such programmes in the future.
Ms. Antara Mahanta Barua from Krishna Kanta Handique State Open University said that the use of ICT and virtual lab helps to increase the learning process. As she is working in the Open University, she found the demo series very effective and she is eager to make use of the idea to improve the process of implementing the theoretical knowledge in various centres.
While Mr. Hemen Chandra Medhi, from St. Edmunds College, Shillong opined to have the use of virtual class rooms in the day-to-day teaching, so as to make the experts around the country available for students all over, even to those in remote areas.  
Mr. Vijay Prasad, Faculty from DBCET shared his impression on the workshop saying, ``Even though we are in a remote centre, we are able to interact with the IIT Lecturers in Bombay. This possibility makes the programme alive and interesting``.
