KIET Group of Institutions, Delhi-NCR, Ghaziabad organized two workshops on Outcome-Based Education (OBE) practices on its campus from 01–05 Aug and then from 08–13 Aug 2022.
Phase 1 & 2 of the workshops were organized in the placement cell’s conference hall to train their newly joined faculty members. This initiative helps the new recruits to adopt the best OBE practices of the institute in their teaching-learning process. The OBE practice is essential in teaching learning for global recognition, opportunities and employment. It is mandatorily required to be practiced for accreditation of different programs and the institution. All the Engineering, Computer Application, Management, and Pharmacy programs of KIET are accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), which is a pathway across the boundaries of a country. It is reported that foreign Universities and Employers, on a global scale, recognize various programs running at KIET. Therefore, the young KIETians (students) get internship/ career opportunities across different parts of the world. This has become possible because NBA, India has become a permanent signatory of Washington Accord since 13 Jun, 2014.
Both the phases of the workshops on OBE practices were conducted successfully by the esteemed members of the OBE team of Dean Academics, which include Dr. Atul Kant Piyoosh (Associate Dean) and Dr. Yaduvir Singh (Assistant Dean). In the inaugural sessions of the workshops, Dr. A Garg (Director) addressed the audience and motivated the participants by advising them to work in a forward manner and adopt a First Time Right (FTR) approach. Also, he emphasized the role of a faculty member to adopt the institute’s best OBE practices in the true sense. Dr. Manoj Goel (Joint Director), Dr. Anil K Ahlawat (Dean –A) and Dr. Shailendra K Tiwary (Dean B. Tech. 1st Yr.) extended their warm wishes to participants and the in-house resource persons, comprising deans and professors from different departments.
In the closing ceremony of both the workshops, certificates were distributed by dignitaries to all the participants, based on their attendance and performance in the assessments. Honorary Captain K. P. Singh (Administrative Officer), Mr. Sunil Vashishtha (Purchase Officer), Mr. Siddharth Jain (Asst.
