As Elbert Hubbard said, the teacher is the one who gets the most out of the lessons, and the true teacher is the learner. When it’s a duty to create established professional and shape a better society, you should educate yourself more and more. Teachers can change lives with just the right mix of chalk and challenge. Believing in this, Mody University of Science and Technology supported NITTTR to conduct a faculty induction programme in the university campus.
