Presidency University, Bengaluru is pleased to announce a faculty development programme (FDP), a 5-day workshop for faculty who want to take their classroom learning experience from good to great. The program is managed by senior faculty from the area of marketing who have extensive academic experience in teaching, research and developing cases, along with a robust industry background. This practical and energetic two-day workshop provides a comprehensive exposure to marketing faculty on alternate pedagogies that would help them to achieve increased effectiveness in teaching.

Why This Program?

Students today come with decreased reading habits and low attention spans which poses a challenge for instructors. However, it is observed that they demonstrate higher confidence and questioning abilities. Hence it is important for instructors to think beyond traditional methods of teaching which predominantly involves lecturing. Research also indicates that adults learn better by doing and experiencing than by listening. This makes a strong case for experiential learning especially in areas such as Marketing and Sales. This workshop provides participants with a well-thought process of designing, structuring, and executing experiential learning methods such as case studies, games, projects, flip classrooms and simulations. It provides them with a framework for defining the right situation for adopting alternate pedagogies.

Program Objectives

Who should attend?

The Program is useful for faculty from all functional areas and especially suited for

(Note: While the workshop will be conducted with a focus on marketing, faculty members from other areas may also benefit from this experience. Hence any management faculty can participate)


The sessions will be highly interactive with hands on exercises and course development by participants.
