The Symbiosis Teaching Learning Resource Centre i.e. STLRC was established in November 2011, with the aim to help raise the effectiveness and productivity of the Symbiosis faculty in terms of teaching as well as research.
The STLRC is Symbiosis International University’s catalyst to inspire and mentor the faculty in their roles as Teachers, Researchers and more so as 'Educational parents'.
Planning and execution of various Faculty Development Programmes under the verticals of Teaching, Learning, Evaluation, Research, and domain specific areas for all the eight faculties of the University.
3 phase Faculty Development Programme on Andragogy and Research Methodology. This FDP is offered at three levels: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced.
MOOC Development Activity: Since December 2018, SIU started various interventions such as completing online courses, face-to-face workshops, and face-to-face meetings to familiarize SIU faculty members about learner-centric MOOCs. This has helped faculty members to submit their MOOC proposals to CEC-UGC.
We are living in turbulent times. The pandemic spread across the globe has caused enormous upheavals in all the spheres of life. The field of education is no exception to it. In fact, the educators can very well be called as the second line force who worked relentlessly during the entire lockdown period and even now to support learners across all levels, be it kindergarten or higher education. Not only did the educators and administrators foresee the challenges but also worked upon them so that the teaching-learning-evaluation processes went on smoothly.
Thus, in order to celebrate the innovative and path-breaking initiatives of faculty members, STLRC has come up with an interesting event. This event will allow the faculty members to deliberate upon the various challenges of the education system and also arrive at sustainable solutions to achieve a better quality of life.
Objective - To promote creativity in thinking and planning for new academic interventions (as part of academic curricula and teaching-learning processes) which will result in a better quality of life for all.
