The Centre will start online professional development programmes for faculty of higher education institutions across all disciplines.

The courses would be offered at “Swayam” — a platform created by the central government to primarily run open and online courses for school and college students.

At the outset, the Human Resources Development Ministry has roped in 75 higher education institutions, including Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Dharwad and Karnatak University, Pavati Nagar, Dharwad, to develop online training material for university and college teachers. The focus will be on latest developments in the target discipline, new and emerging trends, pedagogical improvements and methodologies for transacting revised curriculum.

The ministry notified the list of institutions on Friday, designating them as National Resource Centres.
