1. What is the objective of Faculty Development for Effective Teaching (pedagogy Training)?

To improve the learning outcomes of engineering students by improving competence of faculty from project and non-project institutions through pedagogical training.





2. What is the Scope of the Pedagogy Training or who can benefit or participate in training?

All Project institutions need to organize pedagogical trainings on their campus to cover maximum faculty members from the institutions. Funding will also be available to the interested non-project institutions for Basic Pedagogy training on cost sharing basis.





3. What is the strategy for implementing Pedagogy Training?

Pedagogical training will be offered in two modules (Basic Pedagogy and Advanced Pedagogy), each of one week duration. The modules would include both theory and hands on learning. The Basic Pedagogy training would be given during the First and Second years of the Project while the Advanced Pedagogy training would be provided from the Second Year onwards only to those who have completed the basic training.







4. Who will be the training providers, and what shall be the methodology for selection of training Providers?

The NPIU will develop the curricula for the two modules. It will thereafter invite competency statement, shortlist and qualify competent training providers through an open invitation. SPFU would select for its institutions training providers from NPIU's shortlist by following the World Bank procedure.





5. How the SPFUs will facilitate pedagogical training for the respective State institutions?

The SPFUs are to be responsible for facilitating pedagogical training in the respective State institutions (both project and non-project institutions). The SPFUs shall follow the following steps:

a) Compile a list of institutions desirous of training on their campus in the First Year of the Project along with their location, number of participating faculty and the time slots convenient to them.

b) Using the World Bank procedure for hiring consultancy services, invite proposals from the NPIU short-listed training providers and select one or more training providers for their institutions. The proposals will need to, among others, respond to the Terms of Reference (on lines prepared by the NPIU), and indicate training fee (common for each institution), institutions-wise other expenditure (travel, boarding and lodging, training materials etc.) and terms of payment.

c) After due clearance from the SSC/NPIU/World Bank as the case may be the, SPFUs will award the contract to the training provider(s) under intimation to the NPIU, monitor progress and effectiveness of training, review faculty feed back and end-of-course assessment reports for each institution and cause modifications to be made by the training provider(s) as may become necessary.





6. What will be the payment method to the training providers?

SPFU will promptly pay the training provider all permissible expenditure on receipt of the following documents.

a) Attendance record from faculty members,

b) List of participants with full names, titles and personal e-mail IDs,

c) Summary of faculty feed back compiled by the institutions, and

d) Training assessment by the training provider with recommendations for improvements.





7. What are the deliverables for Pedagogy Training?

The deliverables for the Pedagogy Training are:

a) Number of faculty members trained

b) Feed back from students on teacher competence improvements through the Performance Audit and Student Satisfaction Survey





8. What will be the funding pattern for the different Project institution (Govt. funded, Govt. aided, private unaided and centrally funded institutions)?

The funding pattern for various categories of institutions under Pedagogical training is as follows:

a) Centrally Funded Institutions will receive entire funding from MHRD/NPIU.

b) The Project Government funded and Government aided Institutions will receive funding in the ratio of 75:25 or 90:10 as the case may be.

c) The Project private unaided institutions will receive funding in the ratio of 75:25 or 90:10 as the case may be, only for the "training fee". However, all other expenses including cost of venue, training provider's travel cost, their lodging, boarding and costs for replication and distribution of training materials would be borne by the institutions.





9. What will be the funding pattern for pedagogical training in respect to non-Project institution (govt funded or govt aided and private unaided)?

Funding pattern for the non-Project institutions for pedagogical training:

a) The non-project govt funded, govt aided and private unaided Institutions will be funded only for the "training fee" by the Project in the ratio of 75:25 or 90:10 as the case may be. However, all other expenses including cost of venue, training provider's travel costs, their lodging, boarding and costs for replication and distribution of training materials would be borne by the institutions.
