About the Conference

Recent research devoted to the study of outcome Based Education has created deeper awareness and understanding of teaching learning processes. Despite these great strides, there is still more work that remains to be done. Gaps in understanding about Outcome Based Education persist despite an increase in its adoption .The aim of this conference is to explore innovative ways to research and address these issues. This conference is designed to encourage the society and participants to think creatively about how new strategies might forge new ground in understanding and addressing issues in Outcome Based Education so that higher education can be transformed meaningfully across the globe.

This Conference would also provide an opportunity for cross cultural and cross border intellectual exchange by reaching out to national as well as international audience.

About the CAPSL

CAPSL (Centre for Academic Practices and Student Learning) was started in the year 2016 in collaboration with Trinity College Dublin under the present contemporisation program at TIET. The basic objective of this new direction program is to motivate and train the faculty members of various Departments to excel in their teaching by shifting from Teacher centric learning to student centric learning. The program focuses on the professional development of the faculty by training them through various modules, showcase events, Community of Practices (COP), expert session etc. After completion of preliminary module, the interested faculty members are also sent to Trinity College Dublin for further learning of advanced modules. The faculty members who have completed the advanced modules become the trainers for the trainee faculty. Dr. Michael Wride, Dr. Michelle Share and Dr. Ciara O’Farrell from Trinity College Dublin are also part of the training program during both preliminary modules and advanced modules.

About Patiala

Patiala is a city in southeastern Punjab, northwestern India. It is the fourth largest city in the state and is the administrative capital of Patiala district. Patiala is the erstwhile princely state of Punjab, which is situated in the Malwa region. The city covers a total area of 365 km. It is a judicious synthesis of a brilliant spectrum of Rajput, Mughal and Punjabi cultures and a fine blend of modernity and tradition. The City of Patiala is located around the Qila Mubarak (An original fort from where the city started evolving). It was constructed by chieftain ‘Baba Ala Singh’, who founded the royal dynasty of the Patiala State in 1763. The citizens of Patiala boastfully consider themselves the torchbearers of Punjabi culture and heritage. The intricate and beautiful artwork of Phulkari, the bright colors of Patiala Pagadi, Parandi and Jutti, the largeness of the Patiala peg and the comfort of Patiala salwar, form the essence of the city of Patiala. The handicrafts of Patiala are intricate and beautiful like the Phulkari embroidery. Also, Juttis, a traditional footwear, the Patiala Turban and the Patiala salwar are known for their comfort and style statement.
