The Orientation programme for teachers of the Foundation Courses started on 20 May, 2013 with a group each for "Building Mathematical Ability" and "Language, Literature and Creativity-II (English)". 

Representing 33 colleges, 37 teachers from Maths departments had a lively session with Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dinesh Singh explaining the philosophy of the course and offering examples of data analysis, probability, and algorithms as seen in everyday life. Dr. Sanjeev Singh, Network in-charge, introduced the group to classroom uses of technology. Dr. Shobha Bagai, mathematician and a Fellow at CIC, is the course coordinator. The programme is being conducted at a well appointed computer lab in the Cluster Innovation Centre.

The English Department organised its course with 30 teachers from as many colleges, and asked its core team members to function as resource persons. Emphasising the participative learning expected in the Foundation course, the group shared „tasks‟based on the reading material that had been specially prepared. Prof. Sumanyu Satpathy, Head, Dept of English, Prof. Malashri Lal, Dean Academics, Dr. Vijaylakshmi, Director CPDHE and Dr. Sukrita Paul Kumar, Fellow CIC led the discussions along with others. 

All Foundation Courses have announced their schedules for 3 day Orientation programmes, and received a large number of applications from college teachers.
