Newswise — Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Siddhartan Govindasamy, together with colleagues from JK Lakshmipat University (JKLU) in Jaipur, India, is running an innovative workshop focused on experiential and project-based learning. 

Educators from more than 20 engineering institutions across North and Western India are expected to attend.

The participants will learn tangible approaches to incorporating active and project-based learning at their respective institutions.    

For its part, some faculty at JKLU are in the process of adopting an educational model inspired by Olin College. Following a visit to the JKLU campus by Dr. Govindasamy in March 2018, representatives of JKLU attended Olin’s Summer Institute in June, 2018, and returned to India determined to implement some of the teaching approaches they learned.

The workshop will run from January 11-12.
