A structured plan is created based on the background of each person, their interests, as well as the needs of MIIT in terms of development. Each faculty is assigned a teaching mentor and a research mentor chosen from among the most experienced educators at IIIT-B. The teaching mentor enables and empowers development in terms subject-matter expertise and guides the process of teaching and assessments. The research mentor helps the MIIT faculty to identify potential research areas, strengthens the research methodology, sets standards in terms of research goals, and empowers the MIIT faculty to work individually or in groups. Specific workshops and seminars on strengthening English Language and technical communication are offered.
So far, four such faculty development programmes have already been conducted and about 20 MIIT faculty members have participated in them. The next such programme at IIIT-B is scheduled to start in August 2018.
