Report of the Webinar in Education

Ensuring that education is not obstructed during the lockdown, the Department of Education organized a National webinar on the 3rd of August 2020. The webinar was attended by more than 850 participants consisting of two eminent resource persons, academicians, research scholars, students, etc.  One thing which the lockdown has made everyone do is the increased usage of technology. And with technology, comes innovation. Thus the Department had selected an appropriate topic for the webinar, i.e, the theme was “Technology and Innovation in Education.”

Fr. Bivan Rodriques Mukhim, SDB, Principal, Don Bosco College was the patron of the webinar and Dr. Uma Roy Bhowmik (HOD) was the convener of the webinar. The two very eminent resource persons for the webinar were Dr. Geeta S. Shetty, Associate Prof. from St. Xavier’s Institute of Education, Mumbai and Dr. Manju Gupta, Associate Prof. of Meerut College, Meerut.

The participants were very enthusiastic and they were from different corners of India including Bhutan. After the talk, during the interaction session, the two resource persons replied to the queries raised by the participants. All the participants expressed their gratitude to the management and the department for organizing such a wonderful, enriching, enlightening and insightful webinar.
