Teaching – Learning Processes

Adherence to Academic Calendar:

  • In the beginning of every academic year, the academic calendar is framed and issued to the faculty members.
  • An academic calendar is framed based on the discussions with the Controller of Examinations, Department Heads, Departmental club coordinator, Department level consultative committee and other decision-makers. The framing is carried out at least 15 days before the commencement of the academic year. The calendar is printed and handed over to the students at the beginning of the academic year.
  • The calendar provides information about the Vision, Mission and quality policy of the institution and department. The calendar lists the details of amenities, and Research center available to students. The awards received by students and faculty members are also briefed in the calendar. Rules and regulations pertaining to the hostel, library, classrooms and other areas within the campus are
    The academic schedule provides:

    1. Date of commencement of the academic session
    2. Commencement of class tests
    3. Commencement of mid-semester examinations
    4. Last instruction day
    5. Commencement of practical and end semester examinations
    6. Information regarding projects, seminar schedule
    7. Study period, and date of reopening of the forthcoming semester
    8. A schedule of conferences, workshops, guest lecturers is chalked out and included in the academic schedule to improve the quality of teaching- learning

Course Plan:

In the teaching-learning process, the course plan plays a vital role. It is prepared by each faculty member handling their respective courses 15 days prior to the commencement of every semester. The course plan for each of the course is scrutinized by the DAC and DCC under the guidance of the Head of the Department.

  • Course plan includes course outcomes, teaching aids, teaching methods, learning outcomes, and mapping of outcomes and learning resources that can be effectively utilized for the best
  • Based on the course plan, the delivery is recorded accordingly in the Lesson Progress Register (LPR) and reviewed by the Head of the Department.
  • The teaching-learning process is evaluated based on the data recorded in the

 
All faculty members maintain the LPR for the course that they handle. It contains the following details:

  • Institute vision
  • Institute mission
  • Timetable
  • Syllabus
  • Topics to be taught beyond the syllabus
  • Course outcomes with learning outcomes
  • Learning Resources developed
  • Course delivery details and record of class work
  • Record the attendance
  • Analyse the performance of students in class tests
  • Grade the students
  • Maintain details about guidance and counselling given to the students

Classroom Teaching:

In the teaching-learning process, the lectures are delivered by the faculty member through a set of teaching aids and adopting various teaching methods.

Teaching Aids:

Chalk & Board, Power Point Presentation, Video Film, Models, Charts, Animation, etc.

Teaching Methods:

  • Lecture
  • Group Discussion
  • Seminar
  • Quiz
  • Team Teaching
  • Demonstration
  • Drill and Practice
  • Industrial Visit
  • Project
  • On-line Learning Resources
  • Tutorial
  • Technical Training
  • Smart Class Rooms

Lecture:

Lecture is an efficient and traditional method for delivering substantial amount of information and imparting knowledge to a large number of students. It provides a summary or synthesis of information from various sources. The faculty member ensures to kindle the student for exploring much more on the topic that is delivered with substantial amount of information.

The faculty member ensures that at least a small group of students among the batch are attracted towards the topic summarized and henceforth kindled towards the other modes of teaching aids. Faculty member explains the concepts, principles solutions to problems and applications of respective subject. Lectures create an interest in the subject among the students and kindly their creativity for application in the field.

 

Group Discussion:

Group removes shyness of students and develops their communication skill. It builds their self-confidence. It nurtures them to express their views regarding a subject in a polite manner.

Group discussions are arranged and facilitated by faculty members. At the end of a group discussion, the student members have clear and unbiased thoughts.

The curriculum in the autonomous stream is framed such that the student takes up a review of the previous course. The recollection of such topics can be effectively carried out by hosting a Group Discussion rather than a lecture course delivery.

This approach also paves way to improvise the communication and technical presentation skills of the students. The debate on topics by students effectively improvises the skills of the students. At times, the faculty member summarizes the topic for the non-participants of the group discussions such that they appreciate the need for recollection of the topic.

 

Seminar:

To enhance the teaching / technical delivery skills among individual students’ seminar sessions are arranged. The choice of the seminar topic is done in such a manner that certain topics post-lecture requires a marginal change for the consecutive concepts.

Seminars are designed for students to talk about topics in the particular course or lectures in detail. Seminars are a vital part of most academic courses and they give opportunity to students to discuss the topics in depth with other students, and with the faculty member.

The debate and argument with other students is very useful in developing their grasping and understanding ability of the subject.

Benefits associated with seminars include opportunities to:

  • Learn novel approaches and ideas from peers
  • Clarify the complex concepts

 

 

Quiz:

Periodical and quick assessment of the student’s understanding the concepts is carried out by conducting quiz program. The quiz is either an online one or the traditional paper mode. The scores are recorded for assessing the student’s understating of the concepts.

Team Teaching:

The unique teaching capability of each faculty member is tapped in this method. The variety of perceptions of the same subject by different experts is experienced by the students. The method effectively works for courses of higher levels where the students get a blend of knowledge on focused topics.

Demonstration:

Learning engineering demands on demonstrations. Demonstrations need not be working models. Faculty members choose day-to-day essentials for demonstrations of engineering concepts. The approach is much suitable for basic level engineering courses so that the student recollects the basic concept each and every time he looks at the items.

Drill and Practices:

Despite following the innovative practices of course delivery, it’s at times necessary to impinge the traditional way of making the student to remember certain important formulae and steps involved in designing. One such approach which is involved is the drills and practices.

Industrial Visit:

Industrial visits represent one of the important attribute in any engineering undergraduate program that contribute to the achievement of various essential learning outcomes and program outcomes.

It provides the students an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, and by seeing the working methods and employment practices.

Project:

Engineering education gets itself a complete structure only after the completion of a real time project. The project can be either a prototype model or a working on a real-time industry project. While the former one is guided only by the academic professor and the later one is co-guided by the industry partner. The major outcome of the teaching aid is to make the students understand the work culture and adapt themselves in the industrial environment.

On-line Learning Resources

National Program of Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) provides E-learning through online web and video courses in engineering, science and Humanities streams. The mission of NPTEL is to enhance the quality of Engineering Education in the country by providing free online courseware. http://nptel.iitm.ac.in/

SWAYAM is an instrument for self-actualization process. It provides opportunities for a life-long learning. A learner can choose from hundreds of courses. Every course that is taught at the university / college / school level is in virtual medium. The courses are taught by best teachers in India and elsewhere. A student studying in any college can transfer the credits earned by taking these courses into their academic record.

Tutorial:

Tutorial classes are conducted to train the students in analytical subjects. The total strength of students is divided into two equal halves and two tutorial classes are handled by two faculty members, so that special concentration would be given to the weak students. Tutorial classes help the students to improve their analytical and problem-solving skills. Implementation of tutorial classes helps the students to clear analytical papers in semester end examination.

Technical Training:

Technical training enhances the students to get in-depth knowledge about their subject.

Technical training refreshes the basics which will be helpful for placement activities.

Specially designed training (soft skills, communication skills) is given to students. Such activities facilitate the students to win in job recruitment/placement.

SMART Class Rooms:

The academics use smart class rooms with ICT facility for delivering the lecture in a more efficient and effective manner.
