He was speaking at the inauguration of a one-week international faculty development workshop on "Teaching, Learning, Pedagogy and Research with Multiple Intelligences" organized by the Department of Commerce and CAPE COMORIN Trust at SDM College Ujire on January 25.
In the age of innovation, the role of teachers in making students creative and innovative is important. To do this effectively, teachers themselves need to develop, he said. Dr. B.A. Kumar Hegde, Principal of SDM College Ujire, who presided over the function, said that teachers should not only adapt their learning but also spread it.
