The ten ways to rediscover academic authenticity in the institutional context was an insight to most of us. He shared with us his insight on Innovative Evaluation methods also. Participants were very alert to make observations on the presentations and many sought clarifications on new concepts and terminologies . The excellent feed back received from the participants and their requests to arrange talks like this by the XB is really motivating and rewarding.
