If you are not confident in teaching, better not to proceed with it. There are numerous post graduates with M.Tech in teaching profession who never get either into research or updating their knowledge at least for the benefit of the students. Teachers who have completed M.Tech are advised to do research in their interested domain so that the students whom they teach also get into research.

One of the most used way is the presentation with less text and more image content. Read More
