Center for Education

Research and Innovation


Effective teaching is a combination of multiple factors such as expertise in a particular field, effective communication skills, classroom presence, and an ability to inspire students among other things. Just like it takes two hands to clap, for effective learning students also need to become better learners.

In addition, there is a need to constantly innovate and improve on the teaching pedagogies and learning methodologies so as to maximize the learning of the students. Further, our growing student base brings its own set of challenges such as effective management of large classrooms, aligning experiential learning with the needs of diverse industries and segments, etc. Also, technological innovations such as Artificial Intelligence needs to be integrated into the very fabric of teaching and learning and our evaluation frameworks need to be continuously improved to meet the evolving challenges.

In this context, BITS, Pilani has set up the Center for Education Research and Innovation with the dual objective of enabling instructors to become better teachers and enabling students to become better learners.


The Centre for Education Research and Innovation (CERI) aims to partner with faculty members to enhance the overall quality and effectiveness of teaching across the Institute by adopting and adapting cutting edge pedagogies and evaluation methodologies, developing and delivering appropriate training programs, talks by academic and industry experts, and hosting periodic conferences and symposiums. The Center aims to leverage evidence-based approaches to identify approaches that work in the context of our country and our student base. The Center will also work on research projects that will further the knowledge base in the broad area of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).
