Faculty Development Programme


The Faculty Development Programme (FDP) of the SCHOOL OF INNOVATION & MANAGEMENT, India (SIM) aims at the professional development of faculty members of institutions of management education.

FOR WHOM

The FDP is designed for management teachers and researchers working in management schools, universities, colleges and professional institutes. Individuals teaching in staff training colleges, training centres of industrial organizations, and staff training institutes of central and state governments which teach management and allied subjects are also welcome to apply.

SELECTION CONSIDERATIONS

Participants should have post-graduate level teaching experience in management or research experience of at least two years. Preference will be given to participants less than 45 years of age. Past experience indicates that participants in the early stages of their teaching or research careers benefit most. Since the FDP is offered in the English language, participants are expected to be fluent in English. Considerations for selecting participants include teaching and/or research experience, level of preparedness for the programme as indicated by educational qualifications and statements of purpose, and anticipated benefits to sponsors (see the application form).

OBJECTIVES

The major focus of the FDP is on upgrading the teaching, training, and research skills of management teachers— especially those teachers who have not had an opportunity to acquaint themselves with recent developments in teaching and research methods. The programme enables participants to develop competence in general management education as well as in management research and pedagogy.

COURSE WORK

The programme is structured around the following components:
1. Courses in the area of general management (Introductory and Integrative)
2. Management discipline-related courses (e.g., Understanding Organizational Behaviour, Economics, and Information Technology for Management)
3. Courses in functional areas of management (e.g., Accounting and Finance, Human Resources, Marketing, and Operations)
4. Academic skill-related courses (e.g., Research Methods, Statistical Analysis, Communication for Management Teachers, Case Method in Management Education)
5. Elective module: Participants will be required to attend specially designed courses in one of the following areas, Marketing, Finance & Accounting or Organisational Behaviour & Human Resource Management.

EDUCATIONAL APPROACH

The FDP relies on a variety of learning settings like classrooms, workshops and seminars, and a participatory approach to learning. There is an emphasis on the case method of teaching and learning. Other educational methods such as lectures, small group exercises, management games, and presentations are also used. Computers, statistical kits, and audio-visual aids complement these methods. Participants are also encouraged to develop insights into curriculum planning and academic administration. Participants will have access to the computing facilities at the computer lab having network connectivity. The educational approach of the programme requires a high level of effort from the participants in terms of individual preparation and working in groups.

CERTIFICATION

Participants who complete the programme satisfactorily will be awarded a certificate of participation and will become members of the SIM Alumni Association.

ACCOMMODATION AND BOARDING

The programme is fully residential and participants are required to stay in the furnished accommodation on campus. Permission to stay outside the campus is not usually granted; only under very exceptional circumstances will participants be allowed to stay outside. Participants will dine at the students’ mess which offers a mix of north Indian and south Indian cuisine. While the cuisine is predominantly vegetarian, non-vegetarian food is also available three to four times a week.

SPONSORSHIP

Ordinarily, applicants should be sponsored by their employers. However, under special circumstances, participants who are not sponsored by any institution may be considered for the programme.
