WIPRO Mission 10x program

Mission 10X is a faculty development program conducted by WIPRO for senior Engineering college faculty members in India. It aims to achieve the following:

  • Expose the faculty members to modern and advanced ways of teaching
  • Move from a (only) chalk-and-talk approach to more interactive methods
  • Demonstrate some of the interactive methods through active participation from the attendees
  • A paradigm shift from ‘teaching’ to ‘learning’
  • Help teachers build a bond with their students and work together towards a common goal

The program is offered free of cost to the host institute except the facility cost incurred while conducting the program.

Program Schedule

WIPRO has conducted two editions of this program at BVRIT over the last few years. As a result of these sessions, a total of 38 faculty members (15 in the first edition and 23 in the second) have become certified in the Mission 10X Advanced teaching and learning methodologies.

Each edition of the program consists of two levels – a 5-day preliminary level followed by a 2-day advanced level session. Both are rigorous full-day programs without any breaks. The typical contents of the two sessions are:

Features:

Some of the exclusive features of the programs were:

  • Each member was asked to talk on specific topics. These presentations were video recorded and reviewed. Feedback was taken from other attendees as well.
  • Make group-presentations (in the form of skits) to illustrate the idea of interactive teaching.
  • Prepare and present assignments regarding various topics covered during the course.
  • A number of group activities including presentations, small plays, yoga, mind games etc.
  • Very little PowerPoint presentation.
  • A complete project illustrating the process of building session plans and executing the same using interactive methods.
  • Each faculty member was made to prepare and upload 2 session plans on topics they will teach in the next semester

Key Outcomes:

  • A lot of INSIGHT and EXPOSURE into new ways of teaching
  • An immense amount of SATISFACTION and FUN
  • Many new FRIENDS
  • Two CERTIFICATES from WIPRO and the MISSION10X program

THANK YOU WIPRO for conducting these programs at BVRIT.
