Online training event

Kurukshetra: Professor MM Goel, retired from Kurukshetra University, said, "To develop competence with morality, opulence, victory and empowerment, we need real education as proper, productive and practical use of hands, head and heart with common sense approach." He was addressing the participants of online short-term training programme on "Moral values and professional ethics" sponsored by AICTE at Panipat Institute of Engineering and Technology, Samalkha. His topic was 'Ethical challenges for teachers'. To be bilingual in teaching online and offline is a challenge for the present breed of teachers, Prof Goel believed.
