Under the National Mission on Education through information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), funded by the MHRD, “Train 10 thousand teachers" is a major initiative under the NMEICT, in which IIT Kharagpur and IIT Bombay are working as partner institutes to improve the teaching skills of engineering college teachers of the country in core Engineering and Science subjects.
Under the program, two-weeks ISTE (Indian Society for Technical Education) workshops are held during the vacation period i.e. in summer and winter. Live lectures are given by IIT faculties. The participating teachers attend at a remote center close to their own college, and also attend tutorial and lab sessions conducted in the same center. The lecture transmission and live interaction takes place through distance mode using the AVIEW technology and the internet, at selected remote centers across the country. Being a remote centre (RCID-1343) of NMEICT project, SKFGI has successfully organized several programs with both in house as well as faculties from other colleges.
