NAHE holds Capacity Enhancement Session for IPFP FellowsNAHE holds Capacity Enhancement Session for IPFP Fellows<p>Islamabad, February 12, 2021: The National Academy of Higher Education (NAHE) on Thursday held a capacity enhancement session "Reflective Practice in Teaching and Learning" for Fellows of the Interim Placement of Fresh PhDs Programme (IPFP). Over 200 IPFP Fellows from higher education institutions across Pakistan attended the virtual workshop.</p><p>As the IPFP Fellows go through their placements at universities and institutions across Pakistan, NAHE intends to touch base with them, refresh parts of their learning through the National Faculty Development Programme and assess effectiveness of this Programme. To this end, NAHE collaborated with members of NFDP 2020 instructional team to conduct this session and draw reflections on the NFDP with successfully placed IPFP fellows.</p><p>The session was attended by Rector NAHE Dr. Shaheen Sardar Ali, Lead Consultant Fellowship and Academic Leadership Programme, NAHE, Dr. Shazia Awan, and Assistant Professor Dr. Sana Waheed. </p><p>Sessions like this are part of the continuing professional development approach adopted by NAHE. Fellows were given mini-workshops on reflective practice, teaching, student-centered learning, and learner-engagement in online classes.</p><p>During the event, fellows shared their unique experiences of working through a pandemic and navigating courses online. They also participated in learning activities and reflective sessions with Dr Shazia Awan (NAHE/Dalhousie University) and Dr Sana Waheed (NUST). One of the NFDP graduates reflected on how she relied on WhatsApp to conduct classes and learning activities and keep her students engaged. Fellows shared their stories of creativity and dedication. </p><p>Dr. Sana Waheed assured fellows that the NFDP has provided them with the tools they need to deliver student-centered learnings in their work; she further advised them to take a look, consult their network of IPFP fellows and adapt. Dr Shazia Awan took the participants through what it meant to be a reflective practitioner and how being one can help them think through the wider impact of their teaching practice. </p><p>In 2020, NAHE conducted a rigorous academic teaching course, the National Faculty Development Programme (NFDP), for almost 500 freshly graduated PhDs. The month-long course was designed to prepare NFDP Fellows for teaching and research duties required by their places of work under the Interim Placement of Fresh PhDs (IPFP) programme.</p><p>The IPFP was launched in 2009 with the objective of providing opportunities for employment to selected fresh PhDs for one year as Assistant Professors against vacant TTS (Tenure Track System) positions in public or private universities. During the placement, the host universities are expected to advertise these positions and give equal opportunity to the IPFP faculty for securing permanent positions in BPS/TTS pay scales. The program also supports universities in attracting emerging scholars, reducing search costs and providing necessary experience to potential candidates. </p><p>NAHE is established as a stand-alone, autonomous institution operating under the auspices of HEC to improve the quality of teaching, research, and governance in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) across Pakistan. This series of workshops is one of multiple ongoing NAHE endeavors to facilitate capacity building of faculty in HEIs.     </p><p> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">===============</p>13-02-2021 16:45:27<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-15.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />https://hec.gov.pk/english/news/news/Pages/NAHE-IPFP-Fellows.aspx
