Looking Sideways… (Held in TITE - Dec 30th 2010, 2 PM to 3 PM)

Mr.Sibanand Bhol is an architect, designer and design entrepreneur who has graduated from the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi in 2001. Over the last nine years he has been working with Artisans and Handicrafts in Odisha and New Delhi. He works with natural materials and processes- an approach that is central to most crafts in India and working with many Crafts- Stone and Wood Carving, and Pattachitra are his favourites. He had been with us to enlighten us on environment friendly interior architecture & product designing.

In this seminar he focused on designing products with crafts is the initiation, where the larger issues of sustainable environments and livelihoods begin to get addressed. These solutions will provide an integrated approach to tackle the greater concerns of subsequent larger systems– spaces, buildings, settlements, and so on. He try and combine different materials and crafts together to achieve unique and environmentally responsible design solutions for Products, Interior Design and Architecture, and Graphic Design. His primary objective is to seek sustainable solutions to product design, interior spaces and architecture, working with Handicrafts as part of an integrated approach to achieve sustainable design solutions that could envelop, assimilate and develop the traditional and vernacular in design across India.

Faculty Success: Teaching Excellence (Held in TITE - Dec 14th 2010, 2 PM to 3 PM)

Dr. Durgamadhab Misra is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). He edited and co-edited more than 25 books in his field of research and received several research grants from NSF, NASA and Industry. He has published more than 170 technical articles Journals and in International Conferences including 25 Invited Talks. He is a Fellow of The Electrochemical Society (ECS) and is currently a Distinguished Lecturer of Electron Device Society of IEEE. He has been to TITE to deliberate us on “Faculty Success: Teaching Excellence.”

In his presentation he has given his views that the individuals who have selected their careers as university faculty members in this environment need to understand their roles for a successful academic career. The central function of higher education is strong contribution of faculty members in disseminating knowledge to the students as well as to the peers. To become competitive, the universities in India are including advance technical information in the instructional curriculum. It has to be updated to include practice based education to encourage innovation. Additionally, several higher educational institutions are in a transitional phase from teaching-only universities to comprehensive universities. Even though the balance between different tasks such as research, teaching and service vary from institution to institution the general functionality of the faculty member should be quite uniform. Some keys to time management, people management, effective teaching and service recommendations will be outlined.

Rethinking Engineering Education for the 21st Century (Held in TITE - May 20th 2010, 12 PM to 1 PM)

Dr. Punya Mishra is a Professor and Director of Master's Program in Educational Technology at Michigan State University. He has got an undergraduate degree from BITS Pilani, Masters Degrees from the Industrial Design Center, IIT Mumbai, and a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His contributions to the field of Industrial Design have been described as being “the most significant advancement in the area of technology integration in the past 25 years.” Dr. Mishra is also an accomplished visual artist and poet. He presented a paper at TITE on “Rethinking Engineering Education for the 21st Century”.

In his presentation he had explored some of the problems and challenges based by engineering education and suggest some research driven solutions for improving engineering education. Traditional teaching approaches (such as lectures) rely on presenting course material extracted from the textbook and/or lecture notes. This instructor-centered mode of information delivery leads to (a) reduced student participation; (b) lack of critical thinking; and (c) lack of motivation to attend class. Engineering practice, research, and education have been remarkably stagnant–relative to other professions. The information technology revolution and the liberalization of economies around the world have led to globalization of the human resource pool for technology. US and India are at the leading edge of this change. Research, development, innovation and entrepreneurship are increasingly carried out via cross border initiatives involving both the academic and business communities.
