Dr Deepa Mohan (Asso. Prof., CE Dept) participated in the short-term course titled “Self-Awareness and Higher Goals in Education” organised by the Departments of Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at IIT Madras during 04 – 08 June 2018.
The focus of the course is not on any particular technical subject or teaching pedagogy, but on matters which influence the total personality as individuals. The objective is to make participants aware of themselves as individual human beings, of their potentials, and recognize goals in education beyond obtaining the mundane “subject” expertise. The expectation was that the programme wopul equip the participants to develop into better persons and citizens, in addition to becoming better teachers and life long learners of “life” itself!
