India has been home to the oldest universities of the world, where different modes of teaching were employed in diverse areas of study. However, teaching methods have not kept pace with the revolutionary changes in various disciplines and the aspirations of today's generation. IIT Hyderabad, since its inception, has identified this gap and made several attempts to bridge it.
These efforts have materialized into a flexible and robust academic program, known as the Fractal Academic Program at IIT Hyderabad. This program has induced several changes in pedagogy and spawned novel teaching styles that have managed to engage student interest. In order to share its experiences with teachers in various institutions across the country for effective student-teacher interaction, IIT Hyderabad has established a Teaching Learning Centre under the Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission, MHRD.
