Teaching the Teachers Workshop Concludes Successfully
Prof. Asad A. Abidi’s workshop “Teaching the Teachers (A Concepts Workshop): Electronic Circuits for Instrumentation & Measurement” was successfully conducted at LUMS School of Science and Engineering (SSE) from June 4 - 7, 2012. This was the third workshop of the “Teaching the Teachers” series conducted by Prof. Abidi at LUMS SSE. The first workshop was held from December 20 - 24, 2010 at LUMS SSE. It was attended by 55 national faculty members belonging to EE and focused on Basic Circuit Theory. The second workshop was held from July 14 - 21, 2011 at LUMS SSE and was attended by 66 national faculty members, along with 4 members from industry. It focused on Analog Electronic Circuits & Semiconductor Devices.
The recently held workshop was attended by 88 national faculty members belonging to EE along with 23 members from industry. This workshop involved 6 hours of teaching daily for four days at the LUMS SSE. In addition to the teaching sessions, participants were given an opportunity to carry out discussions in small groups on the topics covered in the day. Participants included Heads of Departments, Principal Research Institute, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors, Lecturers, Lab Engineers, Teaching Assistants, Research Associates from academia and Engineering Managers, Design Engineers from industry. As compared to the previous workshops, this one had the highest attendance yet from both academia and industry. As was the case with the previous two workshops, this workshop was attended by around 40 LUMS SSE students as well.
The closing ceremony of the workshop was held on June 7, 2012 at SSE auditorium 10-401. Guests of honor were Prof. Asad A. Abidi, Dean SSE, Dr. Sohail Asif Qureshi and former Dean SSE, Dr. Shahab Munir Baqai. Head of the SSE Electrical Engineering Department, Dr. Shahid Masud formally started the ceremony. Certificates of Participation were awarded to the workshop participants and a workshop shield was presented to Prof. Asad Abidi in honor of his immense contribution towards the uplift of Electrical Engineering in general and Electrical Engineering teaching in Pakistan in particular.
