As per the continuous improvement policy, Principal instructed Dr. Sohel Rana to work on the roadmap for the solutions on issues related to Information & Communication Technology (ICT) & Innovative Teaching Learning (ITL). Based on it he extensively studied, researched and reviewed the existing structure with available literature and prepared a process which included the integration of ITL & ICT. Mr. Punnaiah Yentrapati, Assoc. Prof. AS&H fromEnglish department completed the proof reading of document.
Eventually the process was accepted by the higher authorities and a new stream under Dean- IT & ICT is established.
Dr. Sohel Rana, obtained his BE degree from Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University (BAMU), Aurangabad, India and completed M-Tech degree in VLSI & Embedded System from JNTU, Hyderabad, India. He was awarded his doctoral degree, Ph.D. by Dr. BAMU, Aurangabad in the year 2018. He is presently working as Dean- Innovative Teaching Learning (ITL) & Information & Communication Technology (ICT) at SASI. He has wide range of teaching experience in various states in India. He also worked in a foreign university for two years. He is ratified as Associate Professor by Osmania University, Hyderabad as well as JNTU, Kakinada. His intellectual research concentrates on teaching learning process. He completed training on teaching, learning process from IIT, Hyderabad, and NPTEL course on ‘Outcome based education.’ He is teaching a course titled “Electromagnetic Fields in 3-D” on national SWAYAM-AICTE portal. Now he is co-guide for 2 research scholars at Dr. BAMU, Aurangabad. He is extensively working on the developing new innovative teaching learning processes (ITL) and the integration of ITL & ICT.
His technical research focuses on the study of Electromagnetic Fields, Wireless Networks, VLSI and Energy Harvesting. He has published 2 textbooks and numerous research papers at IEEE and Springer. He is also a reviewer of reputed journals like IEEE & Springer.
He has expertise in smart digital and innovative teaching learning methods implementation and related research.
He is actively creating animated study videos with 3-D effects for students.
He is working on the research paper based on this process to improve the outcome-based education (OBE).
This is the right time to initiate the usage of innovative and non-conventional teaching methodologies using digital platforms to cope up with the psychology of new generation which is more inclined towards the online culture. Updating teaching methodologies by experimenting with new ways and styles in teaching is a quality of good the teachers. There are various top institutions using the ICT as part of teaching learning process [R-1]* We have a good infrastructure using projectors in most of the classrooms at SASI. Now, we have a target to take our methodologies to the next levels with digital learning to justify the outcome-based education (OBE) at SASI. References can be accessed from the detailed process document available in the file given below.
Based on the research and study done, we had proposed the formation of new wing to address the combination of ICT & ITL with a rich website to address the current issues and to highlight all the good practices coming out of it under the position of new Dean [ILT & ICT].
We have done a decent work in previous semester using innovative teaching learning methods in classrooms and conducted a faculty orientation program on same. Please refer Need & Necessity & Roles and Responsibilities of DEAN- ITL & ICT from process document given in “* in the file given below.
