"I participated in the Doctoral Consortium on Teaching 2022, organized by the Center for Teaching and Learning, IIM Bangalore.The 3 day program is very carefully designed towards ensuring that participants takeaway actionable insights on course design, in class delivery and learning effectiveness. The focus is not limited to 'what' constitutes effective teaching and learning but on 'how' to accomplish the same. A large part of this objective was met through live teaching assignments which were videographed and analysed by both the instructors as well as the fellow participants. It was also very enriching to interact with participants at a similar stage of PhD. journey in diverse management disciplines. I strongly recommend the program for late stage doctoral students about to embark on a career in academia."

“The three-day consortium exposed me to an ocean of wisdom from the stalwarts in the industry. I express my heartfelt gratitude to the Centre for Teaching and Learning of IIM B for this initiative.
One of the best parts of the consortium was its concise batch strength which led us to openly interact with the learned faculty and fellow scholars. Post this executive program, I feel a bit more confident about my competence and ability to smoothly transition into the role of a professor.
I wish all the good luck to the management team to continue enlightening the professional careers of novice academicians in the future as well."

“I, Ashneet Kaur, a Senior PhD scholar from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, attended 3 days Doctoral Consortium Teaching workshop from 31st Jan to 2nd Feb 2022. My overall experience was wonderful as the program involved holistic aspects of teaching effectively. Right from understanding the drivers of learning in teaching to evaluating learning by students to demonstrating teaching mechanisms via case study to understanding the intricacies of designing a course, the program highlighted a variety of ways to make teaching a comprehensive experience for the students. Additionally, a small exercise to teach on a specific topic comprised of getting feedback from the experienced professors was very helpful to know your areas of improvement. I would highly recommend the students switching to the role of professor to attend the workshop as a preparatory course to create an impactful teaching experience in the classroom.”
