PUNE: Teachers who adapt and reform in this technology-driven era can significantly lead to developments manifesting in the progress of our nation, ultimately leading to the progress of human civilisation, said Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology of SPPU Arvind Shaligram here on Thursday.
