Shri. L. Gopalakrishnan, Managing Trustee, PSG & Sons Charities
From the Desk of Managing Trustee
PSG Center for Academic Research and Excellence is promoted by PSG & Sons Charities Trust, one of the oldest charitable Institutions in India. The Trust has created over 29 educational institutions of academic excellence ranging from Kinder garden to Doctoral Studies across Arts & Sciences, Engineering & Technology, Medical, Management and more, that have grown into centers of excellence and have several national and global collaborations to their credit.
Technology has infiltrated today’s classrooms, which are filled with the Millennials. The teaching learning process should undergo constructive changes to adapt to the tech-savvy students. Faculty should keep themselves updated and become tech-savvy too. They should also constantly innovate pedagogies not only to educate but also engage the students in the classrooms. Toward this end, CARE will encourage the use of learner-centric pedagogical practices that facilitate effective learning and will foster dialogue and reflection on effective teaching through workshops, seminars, one-to-one consultation and other activities. The center also focuses on creating and sustaining effective faculty student relationships.
Teachers who invent creative pedagogy and deliver the same with technology will be the most powerful educators of the 21st Century. I request faculty to make best use of PSG CARE programs to transform themselves into effective educators for the Millennial student. I am confident that with proactive support from PSG CARE, the quality of teaching at the PSG Institutions will continuously improve, thereby contributing to the mighty cause of empowering youth through quality education
Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world – Nelson Mandela
Let us change the world by imparting quality education to our future generations
