My more time covering a particular topic. I

My primary goal as an instructor is to encourage the students towards their passion and curiosity and create a classroom environment in which students from all levels of learners can achieve their potential and learn to think as researchers. Even though the advancing digital world offers a lot of new resources to the students to learn,  I believe the traditional lecture is an important component. However, I also believe lecturing must be combined with other methods of instruction because not all students learn best from lectures. I hope interaction based learning improves learning outcomes for all level of students. I believe that at the outset of any course, an instructor must first decide what learning outcomes they want students to achieve by the end of the course. I might ask my students a question at the beginning of class, and again at the end of class, to see if they learned what I wanted them to over the course of the lesson. If not, that suggests that my strategy for the day might need to be modified, or perhaps I need to spend more time covering a particular topic. I could also ask them the same question again in a future class meeting, to see how well the lessons are retained.Students tend to learn fundamental concepts better when they know they will soon be asked to apply them to problems they find important and relevant. I structure my courses with challenging and interesting questions right from the beginning of the semester and try to infuse my students with a desire to know more, to realize that one answered question leads to many others, and with the analytical tools they need to satisfy their curiosity.I believe that Exams will be designed to assess whether students have achieved my learning outcomes. However, even in a class with several midterm exams in addition to a final, that creates a handful of opportunities to receive quantitative information about how the class is performing. I would be prepared to introduce the Physical Principles of Remote Sensing, as well as Microwave Remote sensing for Cryosphere courses in IISER Pune. Additionally, I would be excited to conduct lab course especially to handle Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data and how to use that for different applications.
