The objectives of UGC-Human Resource Development Centre are
To increase access to high quality education regardless of budget or location and tailor lesson plans to individual needs by organizing specially designed orientation programmes on pedagogy, based on free massive online open courses (MOOCs) and hybrid classes, adaptive learning software, and the unbundling of traditional degree credits.
To organize blended learning programmes (induction/ orientation/refresher courses) for serving teachers, with a focus on outcomes rather than the output, covering every teacher at least once in three to five years so that they don’t see themselves as mere instructors, but as designers, and members of a learning development team with particular goals in mind.
To encourage teachers to develop in-house education-technology incubators that help entrepreneurial start-ups get off the ground by providing them with research, mentorship and connections and linking them to capital and to participate in seminars, symposia, workshops, etc.
To organize one week programme on a theme based topics like Academic leadership, Technology Enhanced Learning, Disaster Management, Gender Sensitization, IPR, Social Connect Programme and Learning Outcome Based Education including evaluation
To organize specially designed induction/orientation programmes/refresher courses in IT for new entrants as well as for in-service teachers; and value-based interactive multimedia through integrated practice in instructional media and ICT can nurture the character such as Creativity, Curiosity, Appreciation, Hard work, Self-reliance, Honesty, Discipline and Compassion among teacher facilitators.
