My name is Babu Appat. I work in an engineering college. I teach two subjects; English and Management. I have a channel in youtube- www.youtube.com/TheTrainingclasses devoted for teaching. My free website www.thepleasuresofteaching.webs.com will give you some ideas about the ways I believe can train the teachers to achieve pedagogical excellence. I strayed from topics to topics and didn't stay in one subject or topic. Perhaps it's not advised by experts. I still have no regrets. I believe it helped me to be a good teacher and to satisfy the needs of my student population. I do online teaching too.
I have graduated in English Language and Literature. Then I worked for some time as a Pharmaceutical Executive. I was promoted to be a front-line Manager. Then I completed my MA Degree in English Language and Literature. I have done Master in Business Administration too. Then from IGNOU I have completed the ACT (a training for Academic Counselors, for I was teaching Managerial Economics there to the MBA students) I am pursuing a PG course in Clinical Psychology and am specialising in Learning Disabilities in children.
I am a drummer, in a small way. I am a temple artist. I play the temple drums and a wind instrument called Kurunkuzhal. I can play jazz drums and flute too.
I worked as an academic counselor at the Calicut study centre of IGNOU, teaching Managerial Economics and Marketing Management. I am working as a teacher in the Science and Humanities department of Institute of Engineering and Technology, University of Calicut now. I have trained several teacher, B Ed, M Ed, B Pharm, M Pharm, students and many pharmaceutical executives.
