The eight-week in-service program has been designed to equip university teachers with special skills needed for adult learners required for effective teaching and research at higher education level.

Stressing on the significance of communication skills, for both teachers and students he said,” You may share a lot of knowledge with students but it’s ineffective if not communicated properly so keep in mind that a teacher needs to be a good communicator.”
