Daffodil Polytechnic Institute, a leading technical institute in Bangladesh, recently took a significant step towards enhancing the quality of its training by hosting a seminar on Competency-Based Training (CBT). Led by Mr. K M Hasan Ripon, the Executive Director of Bangladesh Skill Development Institute (BSDI), the seminar focused on equipping faculty members with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to deliver world-class CBT programs.
The session explored a variety of key topics, delving into effective task and contingency management within the specific environment of technical education. Additionally, Mr. Ripon emphasized the importance of presentation skills, ensuring that faculty members can not only impart knowledge but also do so in a clear, engaging, and impactful manner.
By completing this program, Daffodil Polytechnic Institute’s faculty is now equipped with the tools to:
– Apply effective communication: Facilitate a learning environment where students feel comfortable asking questions, participating in discussions, and actively engaging with the material.
