Curriculum Delivery and Enrichment
Effective delivery of curriculum is a vital element of the teaching learning methodology of any institute. The academic success of students and the reputation of the institute largely depend upon the effective curriculum delivery. The institute takes the following action
- CENTRAL PLANNER: Before the commencement of the semester, a central academic planner is prepared to schedule all the curricular, co curricular and extracurricular activities that are required to be conducted in the given academic session (year or semester). The academic planner is sanctioned by Dean, academics and Principal. Similar planners are also prepared by each department to schedule their co curricular and extracurricular activities. Also a schedule of teaching and learning is prepared in the form of time table.
- LOAD DISTRIBUTION: At the end of any semester, all teachers are asked their choice of subjects which they are required to teach in the next semester. Every teacher gives three or more subjects of his/her preference. It is ensured that the teachers get to teach the subjects of their preference given earlier. This process takes place well in advance giving the teacher ample time to prepare for the subject. The load distribution is prepared based on this.
- COURSE OUTLINE: In the beginning of the semester, after being assigned the subject, every teacher prepares a course outline. This course outline consists of Course Mapping with Faculty Expertise, Course Assessment Methods,Course Pre-requisites, program outcomes, course outcomes, mapping of Course outcomes with Program outcomes, lecture plan (including number of lectures allotted, no of lectures planned, course covered etc) for each unit, chapter outcome and their mapping with course outcome, content delivery method, books referred, dates of test, subject to be taught beyond syllabus etc. This outline is signed by faculty, HoD, department academic coordinator dean, academics and Principal.
- COURSE FILE: Every teacher prepares a course file which consists of lecture plan, copy of syllabus, syllabus structure, course outline, lecture notes, solved examples, question bank for each chapter (this includes theory questions, viva questions, multiple choice questions), previous university question papers, power point slides, videos and transparencies. Faculty members who have taught this subject previously are required to update their notes and add new examples. Every teacher keeps an academic diary for attendance record, continuous assessment of term work, record of seminar, project, vacational training and result analysis. The course file is periodically examined by the dean, academics.
- OTHER CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: Soft skill training is conducted to all our students from first year to final year. Communication skills, logical reasoning, interview related skills etc. are taught. Also to bridge the gap between class room teaching and industrial knowledge, augmentation courses, expert lectures industrial visits and in plant trainings are arranged.
