In the field of education, where educational materials and other resources undoubtedly play an important part in a pupil’s educational experience, it is the teacher who implements these resources and acts as a bridge between the material and the student.  Each teacher leaves his/her individual mark on the students being taught and shoulders a large responsibility in the shaping of the students and their eventual successes and failures, as well as in the changes brought about in the educational system in which s/he functions.

As per the vision of Dr Sabiha Mansoor, Vice Chancellor of LCWU, faculty development programmes in HEIs should ‘include advanced courses for specialised knowledge, courses in pedagogy to improve teaching practices, and research activities’. 

The Faculty Development Centre (FDC) at Lahore College for Women University (LCWU), is headed by Mrs Saima Asghar Riaz and has been set up to facilitate faculty at LCWU and other Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to help teachers develop motivating and effective ways to improve their teaching practices and research skills through a range of long and short term development programmes.  FDC at LCWU is committed to providing professional development to not only new teachers entering the Higher Education sector, but also works closely with practitioners within the University. It aims to develop Continuing Professional Development for staff and faculty at the University to address problems encountered by them within their professional environment.

We will be conducting short and long term programmes to facilitate faculty and management staff in resolving any professional issues they face, as well as the following broad streams identified in consultation with the Heads of Departments at LCWU:

ü  Classroom Management Techniques

ü  Writing Across the Curriculum

ü  Syllabus and Curriculum Design

ü  Assessment

ü  Instructional Technology

ü  Teaching Undergraduate Students

ü  Teaching Research Students

We at FDC believe that educational institutions are centres of teaching and learning not only for students but also for teachers!
