Background: Teacher’s training /workshop are aimed at orienting teaching staff with principles of teaching, learning and evaluations, as a part of faculty development program. However, implementation and effectiveness of such training program have not been evaluated to asses the degree of transfer of teachers’ training from teacher to the student. Therefore, a questionnaire based study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of faculty development programme through its implementation in academic curriculum.
Material and Method: All the interns of Sharad Pawar Dental College, Sawangi (M), Wardha were enrolled in the study group. The students those who have not attended a single activity were excluded from the study group. Questionnaire were framed and distributed to the students. Faculty those who have undergone various health profession education training programmes were identified and data was collected from them regarding conduction of various activities.
Result: 78% of the students were in agreement with the designing of curriculum and timely display of syllabus. However, most of the students were not satisfied with the conduction of Problem based learning (PBL) and integrated teaching (ITP). 100% of the faculty was confident to design curriculum for their subject after training as compared to 9% before training. Training programme helped faculty for powerpoint presentation, conduction of PBL, OSCE and setting the question paper as per the guidelines of the University Conclusion : Our results confirm that the training package is feasible, acceptable and useful for teachers with possible reinforcement.
