From the desk of Best teacher……….
There are many factors that determine the quality and success of an educational institution. Good institutions have excellent infrastructure, faculty, reputation, etc. However, placements are one of the most important criteria that differentiate some of these from others. As our college is known for its outstanding placement record, I take this platform to express that, of all the factors teachers play a pivotal role. With a rapid change in the technology of dentistry, the fresh graduates and young teachers have to keep pace with the changes.
The following is the recent quote given by famous educationists.
“Great teacher treat students with respect and caring attitude.
Present themselves in class as real people.
Spend more time working with small groups throughout the day.
Provide a variety of opportunities for students to apply and use knowledge and skills in different learning situations.
Use active, hands-on student learning.
Vary instructional practices and modes of teaching.
Offer real-world, practical examples.
Coach to equip, encourage, and inspire the people to take meaningful action and make a positive difference in the world.”
Just Chase your passion … Not money.
I take this opportunity to invite you all to the 45th Karnataka State and 4th Inter State Dental Conference to be held on December 14 to 17, 2017 at S. S. Convention centre, Davangere, which includes various guest lectures and scientific deliberations by eminent personalities of dentistry. Enrich your knowledge, enlighten and enjoy the precious events at your hometown. I wish all the Alumni a great endeavor in all the moments of life.
Looking forward to meet you all.
Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous New year 2018.
