Collaboration aims to explore cultural differences

Chitkara University, Punjab

The Deputy Dean of Chitkara University Punjab has been awarded £3000 by the UK-India Education and Research Initiative to study cultural differences in teaching style and the potential of e-learning at GCU.

Suman Kumar Nandi will study with the Learning and Development Centre in the School of Engineering  and Built Environment and focus on differences in teaching practices at the two universities and their impact on exchange students, and how each institution uses technology to support learning.

It is hoped the project will help GCU better understand the challenges faced by students integrating into each institution and the role of e-learning in India and identify opportunities for collaborative research.

Professor Caroline Parker said: “We are delighted to be developing further our relationship with Chitkara University Punjab and hope that the project’s outcomes will have a positive impact on the experience of GCU students studying around the world and international students studying at GCU.”

The UK-India Education and Research Initiative was established in 2006 to enhance educational links between India and the UK.
