DW and the Indira Ghandi National Open University’s (IGNOU) School of Journalism and New Media Studies have begun nine days of training aimed at equipping IGNOU instructors with the latest teaching skills. The Aug. 6-14 program marks the fourth such collaboration between DW and IGNOU since their partnership started in 2008.
DW Akademie instructors flew to New Delhi, bringing cutting-edge teaching methodologies with them. IGNOU participants included teachers and researchers, media trainers and project managers.
The goal of the training was for the participants to communicate more effectively in their own teaching. DW previously put on three similar sessions, while IGNOU broadcast DW programming over campus radio stations.
With 3.5 million distance learning students, IGNOU is the world’s biggest university. In keeping with its special charge to provide education for disadvantage parts of Indian society, “The People’s University” offers basic and general education as well as professional training.
