Faculties are involved in organizing various conferences/ workshops/ training programs to create an effective learning environment, improve teaching-learning situations, keep updated on modern instructional devices and inspire them to become better teachers in the modern world. Since the department is offering free training’s and seminars, teachers must grab this opportunity for self- improvement. Talking and learning about a new topic will encourage the students to explore new areas relevant to the topic. Students will feel motivated to research and learn new things. With proper guidance from teachers and experts, students feel motivated to publish their own research journals, contributing significantly to the education sector along with sustainability of production under agriculture sector.
