I use a blend of both lectures and case pedagogy. My belief is the joint action activity between teacher and student to learn and understand the theoretical concepts with real- world practical applications. Moreover, the emphasis is on the group discussions and active strategy learning with the participation in the classroom teaching to enhance the introspection of the students. I can proficient in using the latest technology and software
available in the field which not only imparts skills on cutting-edge technologies to the students but also makes the contents of the courses more effective.
