Hello Everyone,

The UGC-Human Resource Development Centre of the University of Kerala was established in 1987. This was in pursuance to the programme of Action of the National Policy on Education in 1986 when the University Grants Commission took steps to setup fifty Human Resource Development Centres in various universities/Institutions in the country. The key concept underlined was to strengthen the crucial link between teacher motivation and quality of education, and had the broad objective to improve quality of teaching by providing ample opportunities for professional and career oriented development to teachers.

It is universally accepted that teacher is pivotal in the education system, and has the role and responsibility of not only transforming the academic caliber of the students but also to orient them to meet the challenges of life as a competent citizen. Emphasis was given for improving higher education and sensitizing the system to ensure quality and accountability. The reformation and advancements in the domain of training teachers in institutions of higher learning are the results of an exhaustive stride towards academic excellence. Constant revision and improvement of curriculum, continuing efforts in the restructuring of courses and improving the quality of research which are ignited through Human Resource Development Centres are intended to initiate a radical shift in the parameters of training the teacher project. The UGC-Human Resource Development Centre is functioning at the Golden Jubilee building of the University of Kerala which is situated in the sprawling 360 acre campus at Kariavattom. This institution is performing in an outstanding mode and emerged as the premier institution of its kind in India on the basis of the number of Refresher courses, Orientation programmes and other Academic programmes organised. A splendid array of infrastructural facilities including ICT- AV enabled and air conditioned class rooms, equipped computer laboratories, UGC’s Edusat network connectivity support and equipped library are available.

The UGC- Human Resource Development Centre has a vibrant exchange of resources with prestigious Institutions such as Institute of Management in Government, Centre for Development Studies, Rajeev Gandhi Centre for Bio-technology, Tropical Botanical Garden, VSSC, Indian Institute of Management, Indian Institute of Technology, Indian Institute of Science and other institutions in the filed of Medicine, Information Technology, Science and Technology, Agriculture, Social Science, and Universities functioning at Central and State level.

Knowledge explosion occur in all disciplines without exception at frequent intervals which is to be addressed and acknowledged by the teaching fraternity. Teachers at college and University level and administrators need perpetual updating of their knowledge in the respective field of expertise to avoid the risk of remaining outdated and stale in a short span of time. The UGC-HRDC of the University of Kerala fully recognizes its crucial role in comprehending and facing the challenge of the shifting paradigm of human resource development and academic research. The emerging notion of knowledge economy and knowledge society has luminously redefined the role of Universities and other academic institutions in a globalised context. Here, we really realize and undertake the noble task of motivating and equipping industrious teachers to enrich their repertory of resources and to keep themselves abreast of new knowledge, processes, methods and technique of teaching in a scientific and systematic order.

For the aspiring teacher scholars, the academic staff college website provides detailed information regarding the conduct of Orientation and Refresher Courses in various disciplines, information about academic seminars, workshops, short term courses and other programmes launched from time to time. In this institute, our academic and administrative team is sincerely committed to render all possible help to satisfy the hopes and aspirations of the participants passing through. We very pleasantly honour the feed back provided and accept suggestions that can trigger our thoughts innovatively to strive towards excellence.

At the University level, we are proud to enjoy the unstinting support provided by our Honorable Vice Chancellor Dr. P.K. Radhakrishnan, Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr. N. Veeramanikandan, officers, staff and umpteen faculty members. Knowledge is a boundless wealth and all stake holders are welcome to explore the bountiful wealth opportunities available here.

Cultivating admiration in brands: Warmth, competence, and landing in the “golden quadrant”

Jennifer Doe, Emily N. Garbinsky, Kathleen D. Vohs
Processing Journal of Consumer Psychology, Volume 22, Issue 2, April 2012, Pages 191-194

Abstract

Although a substantial amount of research has examined the constructs of warmth and competence, far less has examined how these constructs develop and what benefits may accrue when warmth and competence are cultivated. Yet there are positive consequences, both emotional and behavioral, that are likely to occur when brands hold perceptions of both. In this paper, we shed light on when and how warmth and competence are jointly promoted in brands, and why these reputations matter.
