All the five resource persons are immensely knowledgeable, experienced and have a lot of wisdom on the topic they covered and during the session were very easily able to enlightening us. 
 
 
They are as follows: 
Day 1: Resource Person: Mr. Surinder Singh Oberoi - International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The topic he spoke on was ‘Ethics of reporting in situations of emergencies like COVID – 19 pandemic’. The takeaway – In situations like COVID – 19 pandemics, many unethical reports take birth. Using the tool of fear many journalists report fake news, debarring the ethical parameters. In this session we understood how important it is to follow ethical reporting and how to not fall prey to fake news.  
 
 
Day 2: Resource Person: Ms. Sanya Seth - UN Women. The topic she spoke on was ‘Reporting issues of women during COVID – 19 pandemic’. The takeaway – Women issues or women related issues globally. Today women are working in hospitals, as helpers, etc. as well as go back home and look after household chores. 
 
There have been domestic violence cases also reported and women are facing them even more due to the lockdown. So here we understand that in situations like these it is very important to make sure that along with physical health, even the mental health is taken care of.
 
 
Day 3: Resource Person: Mr. Devendra Singh Tak - Save The Children. The topic he spoke on was ‘Reporting issues of children during COVID – 19 pandemic’. The takeaway – Children are the most important part of any country. 
 
In India 40% of the population are of children. During the lockdown period it is very important to monitor what they watch as they are constantly exposed to news, mobile games and internet. So in this session we understood it is very important to educate children on topics like sexual exploitation, to watch the right content, etc., 
 
Day 4: Resource Person: Dr. Kasun Ubayasiri – Griffith University, Australia. The topic he spoke on was ‘Ensuring that COVID – 19 pandemic is not attributed to a geographical region, community or creed’. 
 
The takeaway – We all are aware that the spread of COVID – 19 began in Wuhan, China, but we should also try and see beyond the parameters of region, community or creed. This session enlightened us with the thought that lets not bring such parameters and decide the future of Corona Virus globally.
 
Day 5: Resource Person: Dr. A. P. Jayaraman – Scientist, BARC (Retd.). The topic he spoke on was ‘Scientific approach for covering COVID – 19 pandemic’.
 
 The takeaway – COVID – 19 pandemic has taken a toll on every individual’s life globally. We do not, as of now, have a cure for Corona Virus, but we can definitely prevent it from entering our lives. 
 
In this last day of the five-day International Faculty Development Program what better learning we could get from understanding the different ways how can we scientifically not allow Corona Virus to affect us, through different remedial measures.
 
The International Faculty Development Program has given all the learners a high perspective in teaching students with a vision of guiding them and helping the students to provide right information regarding all aspects of COVID – 19.
