Two innovative approaches to teach traditional theory-based courses
Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Bennett University is offering a specialized course on Probability and Statistics at the Second Year of the B. Tech program. This course is designed to teach students the core mathematical foundations of Probability & Statistics and prepare them for the journey ahead. According to Harvard Business Review, Data Science has been dubbed as the Sexiest Job of the 21st Century. Following this notion, the Department has recognized the importance of the field and has been working towards imparting the best education to our students. The faculty at Bennett University has tailored the course to meet the demand of industry, and in doing so, aim to produce individuals who are driven and have a passion for Statistics and Technology. A natural consequence of working on this goal is that we can train our students to give them an edge in the market. To that end, the department conducted a thorough check on the industrial requirements. Based on the identified concerns, the department designed the course not only to cater to the theoretical expectations but to meet the practical demands of the ever changing technological world as well....

These challenges can be mitigated through pedagogic innovations such as a mix of existing methods, and new methods that assist the process of learning. I have experimented with four new pedagogic methods while teaching a course on Advance Data Structure and Algorithms ...

Thus, the structure, role and outcomes of a doctoral study assume special importance and these have always been a topic of debate and interest. During the course on “Research Supervision in Higher Education”, I came across Student Enrollment, Quality of Doctoral Study...

Practicing Education as an enabler for uplifting the society
In coming years the only differentiator that will matter in the selection and ranking of world class educational institutions will be that whether the institution is practicing education as enabler for uplifting the society.
