FJDC enhances faculty expertise with continuous professional development workshop

KARACHI: Fatima Jinnah Dental College (FJDC) & Hospital recently hosted a workshop for its faculty on Continuing Professional Development.

This workshop aimed to develop and enhance faculty expertise on creative PowerPoint presentations, interactive lectures, multimedia design principles, time management skills, teamwork and coordination.

Dr Gulrukh Askary, Academic Director and Head of Oral Pathology Department, FJDC and his demonstrators facilitated the workshop. They divided the whole session into two parts.

In the first segment, Dr Gulrukh covered key points on the importance of teaching styles in interaction through engaging presentations and improved techniques. She also explained the importance of body language, tone and attitude when presenting the course and how to keep students’ interest throughout the course.

The second segment of the workshop was activity-based, where candidates were grouped together and tasked with preparing a PowerPoint presentation using all the vital points demonstrated. One of the group members was invited to make the presentation, and candidates later received comments on it.

At the end of the session, participants were overwhelmed with the experience and provided positive feedback on the workshop.
