TLC Regional workshop
The Teaching Learning Centre, BITS Pilani, KK Birla Goa Campus organized a two day Regional Workshop On "Outcome Based Learning Using Pedagogy Framework Model" in collaboration with Centre for Educational Technology(CET), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, under the MHRD government of India funded project “Developing suitable pedagogical methods for various classes, intellectual calibers and research in e-learning (Main Phase)” at BITS Pilani KK Birla Goa Campus during 10th -11th February, 2017. About 43 participants, from institutions in and around Goa participated in the event.
The event was inaugurated by the Prof. G. Raghurama, Director, BITS Pilani KK Birla Goa Campus along with Prof. K. E. Raman, Professor Emeritus, Department of EEE, BITS Pilani KK Birla Goa Campus. Dr. Varinder Singh, Faculty-In-Charge, Teaching Learning Centre, BITS Pilani KK Birla Goa Campus in his welcome address highlighted the need and importance of the workshop. Prof. Raghurama highlighted the importance of outcome driven approach to higher education. Prof. K.E. Raman discussed the importance that BITS Pilani has been attaching to teaching learning processes throughout its history right from 1970’s by focusing on micro teaching aspects through intensive teaching workshops as well as subject workshops to ensure best possible learning environment. Dr. Tamali Bhattacharyya welcomed the participants on behalf of IIT Kharagpur and thanked BITS Pilani KK Birla Goa Campus for hosting the workshop.
Several lectures were organized during the workshops addressing topics related to Outcome Based Education and Instructional Objectives, Outcome-based Curriculum Design and Software, Assessment and Evaluation, Outcome Based Curriculum etc. The sessions highlighted the need to recognize different cognitive ability of the students and encouragement of the learning by doing process in the classroom, preparing balance question paper.

Introducing the 4th AttLis Workshop at BITS Pilani Goa Campus
The workshop's theme is multi-modal cognition with an emphasis on the interaction between language and vision. More specifically, there is a central focus on how attentional and visual processes interact with spoken and written language processing. Why are attention and vision crucial to language comprehension? Prominent approaches to language-vision interactions have focused so far on whether language processing is like sensory processing (the 'embodied cognition approach') or whether cross-linguistic differences lead to permanent restructuring of cognition and perception (the 'linguistic relativity approach'). We know, however surprisingly little about the nature, representations, and mechanisms of every-day language-vision interactions such as when language guides our attention around the visual world. Core themes of the workshop are the (non)-intentionality of language-vision interactions, the nature of competition, selective processing, learning and development which suggest that the investigation of language-vision interactions by means of methods such as eye-tracking offers a window into the mechanisms of how high level representations involved in language and memory interact with visual input. The workshop seeks to encourage discussions which advance the field in important ways and lead to close collaborations between the participating researchers. It also discusses how research in this field can affect our understanding of consumer psychology and consumer neuroscience.
