Dr.Hemant Naik's Expert Sessions on 'Lessons learned from Life', 'How to be an effective Teacher' and 'Quantum Physics - A different way to look at life'

At Saffrony Institute of Technology, we invite experts from diverse backgrounds to take sessions on various subjects ranging from the syllabus, current affairs, trending technologies to out-of-the-box topics. On 22nd and 23rd November, 2022, we were privileged to have again with us Dr. Hemant Naik sir, Dean of Alumni & Resource Generation at SVNIT. He was the HOD of the Mechanical Engineering Department at SVNIT, having a teaching experience of more than 30 years.

The first session he conducted on 22nd November 2022 from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM was titled “Lessons learned from Life '' where he delivered the crux of his learnings of 30 years. The 135 faculty members and students who attended the lecture were definitely privileged to have received the essence of his immense experience of both professional as well as his own personal life in a mere 2-hour session. The session was so gripping and engaging. Dr. Hemant in his unique way connected with the audience, his simplicity was eye-catching and the grandeur of the points was enormous.  It was indeed one of the most memorable sessions for the attendees.

The next session on 22nd November was exclusively for faculty members conducted from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The session was titled “How to be an effective Teacher”. The session started with the question ‘Why teaching?’ and then he elaborated on its importance. This includes the fundamental idea that- the best way to learn a subject is to teach it, which is true because as a teacher one starts a career but only through continuous teaching one becomes an expert in that subject. Furthermore, teaching as a profession is one of the most self-satisfying and respectful jobs worldwide as it involves sharing of knowledge, especially with the youth, which is immensely appreciated and valued. He not only discussed but demonstrated how deep learning can be infused through mindful teaching and shared many examples of how the concepts can be taught and learning could be fun. “A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning” is best suited to Dr. Hemant Naik and we at SIT are grateful to him for having passed on his bag of gems to our faculty members. All Diploma and degree engineering faculties attended the session. 

On the second day, 23rd November, 2022 Dr. Hemant Naik met with student teams that have displayed excellent performance in co-curricular competitions at National Level. He met the student teams of SIH, NSG, AICTE Competitions & the Robocon Team. He was very pleased and impressed with the level of preparation, technical expertise, dedication and the top rankings the student teams had achieved. One more session was conducted on 23rd November from 2:00 to 4:00 pm on “Quantum Physics - A different way to look at life”. Such a mind-boggling topic was presented and made the audience think. The theories that otherwise would take years to understand, he put into perspective and in 2 hours the audience could enjoy the ride and  His curiosity to learn at this age was very inspiring. The experience of these two days may be described in some paragraphs but the tremendous learning that took place can possibly never be measured!
