Teacher Training Programme

A major project aimed at providing significant assistance to Sri Lanka was initiated by the Spark branch. The Spark branch collaborated with the Sri Lankan Ministry of Education to conduct a "Teacher Training" programme that aimed to equip advanced-level IT teachers with Machine Learning knowledge, which will be highly beneficial for good teaching practices. Teachers had the opportunity to learn about the basic principles of machine learning throughout the project, which will help them to have a solid foundation in this field and expand that knowledge after the project is completed. The course was broken up into six three-day sessions. Of those six sessions, three were devoted to imparting theoretical knowledge, and the remaining three to assisting the teachers in gaining practical experience with the scope. The department's instructors led the theoretical discussions. The undergraduates in their final year led the practical sessions. After completion of the three-day course, teachers were awarded with certificates as a token of appreciation.
