Symbiosis Teaching and Learning Resource Centre (STLRC)

Symbiosis Teaching and Learning Resource Centre

The creation and transmission of knowledge is central to the core mission of a university. Achieving both scholarly eminence in research and the highest levels of pedagogical impact in the classroom and beyond are what makes a research university truly great. Practical resources that foster the enhancement of teaching and learning may be found here.

Faculty Development Programs (FDPs) are especially important in adapting faculty members to their changing roles in initiating and setting the directions for curricular changes. These programs can be a powerful tool to constitute a positive institutional climate. Overall, the aim of all these training programs is to support educators in adapting to changing missions of teaching and to enhance the efficiency and performance of their teaching skills while improving work satisfaction and teaching confidence by developing good teachers.

The Symbiosis Teaching Learning Resource Centre (STLRC) of the University is a catalyst to inspire and mentor the faculty in their roles as teachers, researchers and more so as educational parents. STLRC strives to complement the academic mission of the University by improving the teaching effectiveness and enhancing research ability of the faculty. It contributes towards the enhancement of faculty members in the areas of teaching and learning, research and evaluation.

Waste is inevitable. Since no system in the present technological society is ideal, any production and consumption patterns without waste generation are de facto not possible. Waste generation due to rapid industrial development, urbanisation, modern agricultural practices and numerous mini revolutions that have taken place in the past few decades in diverse sectors have taken its toll by causing environmental pollution. While the air, soil and water pollution is on the rise across the world, raw materials and conventional energy resources used for the production of finished goods are becoming more and more scarce and expensive. This has led to global issues like climate change, ozone depletion, etc. with the increased disparity among societies. With the changing consumption patterns and higher standard of living in urban and industrial environment, waste generation per capita has increased in mass, had become more heterogeneous and complex in nature thereby resulting in concurrent increase of ‘Wastivity’.

In the era of climate change, the entire world is observing a paradigm shift in the overall waste management practices that is rapidly changing its face and orientation. Waste is no more considered as waste but is recognized as a ‘Resource’. This lost resource could potentially be recovered from the wastes using suitable strategies and technologies. Therefore, in a real sense, model like recovery and recycling of waste resource is gaining remarkable importance in today’s so called ‘Technological Society’. Application of concepts similar to this work will ultimately reduce the demand for natural resources thereby extending its sustenance. Sustainable waste management and recovery/recycling systems aim to reduce the quantity of natural resources consumed, while ensuring that any resources already taken from nature are reused many times, and that the amount of waste produced is kept to a minimum. The processing of waste plays a key part in these aspects.

With the above backdrop, Symbiosis International University (SIU), Pune has recently established a new centre called "Symbiosis Centre for Waste Resource Management (SCWRM)" in collaboration with Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. The centre is conducting research in 3 broad areas viz. (i) Biogas & Biocomposting; (ii) Solid waste management and; (iii) Awareness, Training and Consultancy.

Currently, the SCWRM is doing several projects with Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) on diverse aspects of municipal waste management viz. Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and efficiency of biogas plants in PMC region; training and awareness; etc. DRDE funded project on “mobile toilets” during Kumbhamela at Nashik is also in progress.

The centre is committed to advancement of knowledge in the field of sustainable waste management for the benefit of the society and environment at large. The Centre also has the capacity to develop insights in diverse sectors of industry, economy and society which will deal with the waste generation and its management. Furthermore, SCWRM will be committed to interdisciplinary approach to build awareness and seek to identify, analyse and implement key issues and challenges to waste management and sustainability involving all levels of stakeholder’s viz. Government, statutory bodies, policy makers, corporates, academia, research institutes, civil society and many others.


The border line is often blurred between the work of health professionals and service providers and the work of partners who are outside the health sector. Therefore, specialist health care and community services training helps to meet industry skills gaps and improve the lives of people in healthcare to make a difference.

Symbiosis Centre for Health Skills was established with the following objectives:

  • To provide high-tech simulated and virtually created hospital set-up for teaching and training & assessment for all health care professionals in clinical and related management skills (including communication skills).
  • To ensure delivery of high quality healthcare services to the community by providing highly competent and safe practitioners trained and tested by simulation techniques.
  • To offer academic programmes on Health Skill already launched
 Academics programmes are launched in Health Skills
