COVERAGE OF SPECIAL TOPICS
USING EXTERNAL GUEST AND EXPERT SPEAKERS
HOURS ALLOTED: 30
As per teaching scheme, two hours per week have been allocated for External Guests as Expert Speakers to create a good academic interface with the industry. This is an important activity to complement our existing faculty through inviting renowned industry experts to address specialised disciplines and investigate emerging business trends, techniques and innovative case-studies.
GUIDELINES FOR USING EXTERNAL EXPERT SPEAKERS
1.Before inviting the Speaker, make sure that they really are experts in the relevant subject.
2.Invite, if possible, Speakers who are not only experts in subjects but are also capable speakers.
3.If, although they are eminently suitable because of their expertise, they have poor presentation skills, offer them support.
4.Inform them in writing, and in clear unambiguous terms, of the aims and objectives of the session.
5.Discuss with them, then confirm in writing, specifically what you want them to cover: exactly
how long they have to speak: and what questioning techniques will be employed – during and after the session.
6.Give them full information, in writing, about the starting time, the location, and the size and level of the participants.
7.Confirm whether they will use aids and, if so, of what type(s) and how many. Do they already have them, are they of acceptable quality: do they want any help in procuring them: do they want to use aids available with you.
8.Confirm whether they intend to use hand-outs: do they have them available: do they want any
support in their production: when do they intent to use them.
9.Seek and confirm their views on the room layout – what type they would prefer or whether they have to accept the existing room layout.
10.Arrange a feed-back session with the participants – as you may want to use them again.
Maintain a record of the date, duration of the session and contact details of the Guest Speakers for future references which may be required by your institute and the NCHMCT.
