University Professor's have a large impact by educating the next generation of developers and engineers. Google Developers wants to enable university faculty with the best curriculum on Android development and programs. Earlier this year we announced the launch of our new faculty-led curriculum for Android Development with Kotlin in India. The curriculum is based on classroom learning (virtual or in-person) with an instructor delivering lectures on important Android concepts and students receiving hands-on practice through interactive pathways.
The Google Developers India Faculty Summit 2021 will kick things off on April 23rd. The Faculty Development Training program provides professors or faculty from different universities or skilling partners in India with resources designed by a team at Google.
Current partners in India include: Shivaji University, I. K. Gujral Punjab Technical University, Chandigarh University, Ganpat University, Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK), Learn 4 Grow, Teerthanker Mahaveer University and Information, and Communication Technology Academy of Kerala. These organizations will be the first to learn an offer this curriculum to their students with more universities to follow in upcoming semesters
Leading scholars and educational influencers from computer-science faculties at Indian universities will be in attendance, giving attendees the perfect chance to network with other professionals in Android development
Chief guest for the event is Professor Anil D. Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). As he describes the upcoming summit,
"Google India Faculty Summit 2021 is a great opportunity for faculties of technical institutes to understand & assimilate nuances of Android Application Development using Kotlin and in turn disseminate the same to students, challenge them to create new applications, innovative solutions and make them entrepreneurs/employable engineers."
Register today for the summit here and see you on April 23rd at 10 AM IST.
