Words from HoD

The Department of Plant Pathology has been shaping and brightening the future of the younger generations through a collective and interactive teaching-learning environment and time-honored pedagogy. The department is mainly engaged in the teaching profession. We are purely engaged in creating a diverse, progressive and inclusive work environment. We believe this effort is central to maximizing creativity and innovation in research and education within the department. I firmly believe that Department of Agriculture Extension is one of the best nursery platform for our great scientific minds from the outskirts. To overcome and ignore the COVID-19 hurdle and secure educational journey of our great and cheerful minds, the team of our department is well equipped with state-of-the-art online tools i.e. Teachmint App, Google Meet, Zoom App, YouTube etc. The ICT is used for teaching and practical classes. PPT is being used by the faculty when necessary. Students are also provided facility to give there seminar in PPT mode only and preparation of manuscript like assignment, research data compilation, analyses, research paper, reference collection. We are in the process of creating smart class room facilities. With this technical mind set up in this challenging scenario, incorporating online education in pedagogy will improve our aptitude and ensure a bright academic profession.
