Assistant Director, UGC-HRDC, University of Allahabad
The inaugural session of the short term course titled- “MOOCs, e-content development and Open Educational Resources” was held at the UGC-HRDC, University of Allahabad on February 23, 2020. This was the first time that the HRDC is conducting this one week course on this very important and relevant subject. The course was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Vice Chancellor of the University of Allahabad, Prof. R.R. Tewari. He delivered the inaugural lecture on the topic- “Learning in the 21st Century” where he outlined and defined the new dimensions of teaching and learning that are invented using the tools of Information and computer technology. He talked about various platforms and software that are used and can be used by the teachers in order to develop new teacher-learner interface. Prof. H.K. Sharma, the Director the HRDC emphasized on the relevance of such courses for the capacity building of the teachers and emphasized on the need of more such courses that may enhance the capacity of not only the teachers but also of the human resources in the form of students that are going to be benefitted from such online courses. The course is being coordinated by Dr. Prashant Khattri, Assistant Director, HRDC. The course is being attended by teachers from various colleges in Prayagraj and other parts of India. This course will run till February 29, 2020.

ई-कंटेंट निर्माण, और मुक्त शैक्षणिक संसाधनों पर इलाहाबाद विश्वविद्यालय के मानव संसाधन विकास केंद्र के द्वारा संचालित सात दिवसीय कोर्स का उदघाटन सत्र दिनांक 23 फरवरी 2020 को आयोजित किया गया. इस शोर्ट टर्म कोर्स का उदघाटन विश्वविद्यालय के माननीय कुलपति प्रोफ़ेसर आर.आर. तिवारी जी ने किया. उन्होंने उदघाटन सत्र में “२१ वीं शताब्दी में शिक्षा” विषय पर अपना व्याख्यान दिया. इस व्याख्यान के माध्यम से उन्होंने यह बताने का प्रयास किया कि इस शताब्दी में शिक्षा के विस्तार के लिए नयी कंप्यूटर तकनीक और सूचना तकनीक का प्रयोग अनिवार्य हो गया है. ओनलाइन कंटेंट बनाने और संप्रेषित करने के लिए नए प्रकार के उपकरण और साफ्टवेयर उपलब्ध हैं जिनकी जानकारी शिक्षकों को होना अनिवार्य है. अपने इस व्याख्यान में उन्होंने कई ऐसी नयी प्रणालियों और साफ्टवेयरों के बारे में जानकारी दी. केंद्र के निदेशक, प्रोफ़ेसर एच.के. शर्मा जी ने विषय पर अपनी बात रखते हुए कहा कि इस प्रकार के कोर्स द्वारा शिक्षकों में क्षमता के निर्माण किया जा सकता है. यह केवल शिक्षकों के लिए ही नहीं बल्कि मानव संसाधन विकास जिसमे छात्र एक अति महत्वपूर्ण अंग हैं के लिए भी लाभकारी होगा. इस कोर्स को केंद्र के सहायक निदेशक डा. प्रशांत खत्री संचालित कर रहे हैं. इस कोर्स में प्रयागराज और देश के अन्य क्षेत्रों के कालेजों से आये प्रतिभागी हिस्सा ले रहे हैं. यह कोर्स 29 फरवरी तक चलेगा.

 
Coordinator, Centre of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences, AU 
The  Centre of Behavioural and Cognitive Sciences (CBCS), University of Allahabad is organizing a five-day Workshop on Cognitive Neuroimaging on February 21-25, 2020. The Centre established a National Neuroimaging Facility with a large-scale grant from the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India last year. The facility was inaugurated by Dr. Harshvardhan, Hon. Minister of Science and Technology, Government of India. The goal of this 5-day workshop is to provide hands-on experience with functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) experimental design, acquisition, and analysis of fMRI data for advancing cognitive neuroscience research in India. Since this will be an intermediate-level workshop with brief introduction to fMRI methodology, this workshop is mainly targeted at advanced PhD and postdoctoral level scholars who have planned to use fMRI methodology to address their targeted research question(s). This workshop covers fMRI design strategies, acquisition of task-related fMRI data (a few participants data will be acquired during the workshop), pre-processing and analysis of fMRI data at single-subject as well as group level. Towards the end of the workshop, actual fMRI experimental designs proposed by participants will be discussed. Overall, the emphasis of this workshop will be on how to use fMRI as a tool to address research questions in Cognitive Neuroscience. Twenty-three scholars from various institutions like IIT Kanpur, IIT Gandhinagar, IIT Delhi, IIIT Hyderabad, ISI Bangalore, IIIT Allahabad, Department of Psychology, AU and CBCS are participating in the workshop. Prof. Bapi Raju, IIIT Hyderabad and Dr. Srikanth Padmala and Mr. Lakshman, Research Associate, Centre for Neuroscience, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore are the resource persons for the workshop. Their extensive experience and expertise in cognitive neuroimaging will certainly aid in training and capacity building for fMRI research in India. The workshop started on February 21, 2020 with an inaugural session chaired by Prof. R. R. Tiwari, Honorable Vice Chancellor, University of Allahabad. Prof. Tiwari in his inaugural address emphasized the importance of the study of the interaction between brain and mind using techniques like functional MRI and acknowledged the Centre’s sincere efforts in this direction. Prof. Tiwari highlighted the fact that the National Neuroimaging Facility is a unique facility dedicated to research in a University set up with the support of Government of India. Prof. Janak Pandey, Founder Head, CBCS in his address spoke about the bright future of the young researchers going to be trained with such a state-of-the-art research facility. Prof. Bapi Raju, IIIT Hyderabad congratulated the Centre for such a unique research facility and taking the leadership to train researchers with the nuances of fMRI research. Prof. Raju emphasized upon the need to continue to have such hands on training workshops in future. The session ended with a vote of thanks proposed by Dr. Niharika Singh, CBCS.
