TEACHING AND LEARNING

Process of Teaching & Learning

The Course Co-ordinators are adopting some of the following delivery methods in addition to regular class room teaching.

During the classroom interaction with students, it is encouraged to use collaborative learning and some of the concepts are explained through case studies and real world examples. The following methods are also adopted.

Context Based Learning – Context based teaching enables the students to learn from experience. By interpreting new information (daily newspaper) where, when and why it has occurred and relating it to the concepts students have already learnt in the class, the learners are made to analyze and infer with a case study. Examples are supported by site visit whenever possible.

Peer Teaching - In peer teaching, a specific topic is assigned to each student (individually or in teams) for presentation to a small group of students or to the entire class. The Course Co-ordinators establishes minimum requirements or guidelines for the presentation and includes a couple of examples. The presentation must include reference web pages, videos if available, case studies, etc., as suggested by the instructor.

Quality of laboratory experiments with regard to conducting experiments, recording observations, analysis of data etc.

The core courses of the programme are supported by laboratory component (Ref Fig 2.3) through which students are provided an opportunity for delegated hands on training. The learners’ ability is continuously assessed during regular laboratory class, with emphasis on conduction of experiment, recording of data, analysis of results and inference. Their level of understanding is evaluated through viva-voce. The performance of students is evaluated once in a semester through MSE – Mid Semester Examination internally by Course Co-ordinators and through SEE – Semester End Examination, jointly by internal and external examiners (as co-examiner).

Quality of Semester End Examination, internal semester question papers, assignments and evaluation

The system of evaluating the learners’ performance through Mid Semester Examination (MSE1, II, III), Learning Assignments 1, 2 (LA1, LA2) and Semester End Examinations (SEE) is explained under Semester End Examinations and Continuous Interanl Evaluation (CIE) separately. As an Autonomous Institution, the SEE evaluation is made transparent by involving External Examiners from other institutions as members of Panel of Examiners (PoE), controlled /monitored by Board of Examiners (BoE) for Question paper setting, practical exams and evaluation of answer scripts. Entire system of Examination and evaluation is controlled and monitored by Controller of Examinations. Roles and Responsibilities of various memebrs of examination system under Autonomous system are described under criteria 10.

Semester End Examination

The process involved in Semester End Examination is as follows.

Conduction of Laboratory Examinations

Laboratory Examinations are conducted as per the standard procedure of Autonomous system adhering to scheduled Time Table approved by the autonomous office, strictly by an Internal Examiner and an External Examiner from PoE as Co-Examiner.

Evaluation of Internship and project Reports - Quality of Student’s Projects/Internship Reports

The following process is adopted to adhere to the quality requirement of Project Work / Interenship.Project identification

Prescheduled Phase-wise Review of progress of Project work till completion – Phase I to IV review, each carrying 25 marks. Progress review includes thorough literature (from refereed national / international journal) review on the topic selected presentation of progress and model demonstration if any

Enhancing the relevance of projects

Implementation details including details of POs and PSOs attained through the projects with justification is provided in the list of projects taken up by the students. Quality of the project is measured in terms of consideration to factors including, but not limited to, environment, safety, ethics, cost, type (application, product, research, review etc.) and standards, using S – Strong, M – Medium, W – Weak.
