"This programme enabled a complete shift in my thought process which isn’t an easy thing to achieve. Coming from a non-teaching background, CIDTL (Module 1) course helped me a lot to get acquainted with the different teaching & learning models and methodologies which can be implemented easily in the classroom. ”
I joined the CIDTL (Module 1) course in 2018 at MET. I enjoyed my course as it included group interaction, multimedia applications, reflection techniques and lesson planning that engaged and motivated me at each step. Dr. Ritu’s guidance aimed to achieve learning objectives in each class which led us to effective creation of portfolios.
Doing CICTL at MET was the best decision as I now understand the nuances of effective teaching which I was unaware of. Dr. Ritu has a rich experience in the field which she delivers expertly using multiple strategies, individual and group works, reflections etc. The administrative support is also strongly in place and the reading material provided in the form of handouts, presentations and videos aids the learning as well as portfolio creation.
It was a good decision to enrol into the CIDTL (Module 1) course at MET. The facilitators are very friendly, cooperative and guide perfectly. The best part is the approachability to the faculty. Wishing institute, the very best in perfect moulding of students in future as well.
Studying a CIDTL course at MET was an extremely innovative approach of learning for me. It taught me insightful patterns or methods of teaching. It completely gave new perspectives for teaching as well as learning. Our Mentor Dr. Ritu is the most amazing lady with tremendous knowledge. Every session as well as surroundings at MET was comfortable for us to open up to any query, any time be it in the classroom or library.
I am very glad to share a positive journey of CIDTL at MET. I truly believe it is a place where one can find an amalgamation of learning, fun, lore and many such life preaching activities. It provides a motivating as well as a technologically equipped environment. All the faculties are enthusiastic and always ready to help. I am thankful to my mentor and all the facilitators for providing a platform to enhance my skills and an opportunity to showcase them.
