D (September 8, 2016): The 28th Master Trainers-Faculty Development Programme organised by Higher Education Commission concluded at HEC Secretariat here on Thursday. As many as 30 faculty members from various higher education institutions across Pakistan participated in the programme.

Speaking at the occasion, the chairman said that teachers are assets for any nation and they are responsible for shaping the thought-process. He urged the faculty members to spread hope among their students and teach their students the importance of tolerance in life.

“Different segments of our society need integration and teachers have a very important role to play in that context. Remember that your students should not only excel in their respective disciplines but they should also become good human beings,” he stressed while advising the teachers to disseminate best practices of learning to their students.

They said that they learnt a lot about theoretical research methodology, need for critical thinking, and how to plan a programme with HEC funding.
