Curriculum delivery in the department is aimed at making learning engaging, experiential, and research-oriented.
Teaching methodology, in addition to classroom lectures, includes participatory initiatives such as group discussions, quizzes, and presentations. This makes classroom experience engaging, enhances students’ academic prowess and contributes to overall skill development.
Activities and group projects (for Value Addition Courses and the Skill Enhancement Courses in particular) make learning experiential. Curricular exposure is further strengthened through interactions with various industry/subject experts, in workshops and seminars periodically organized by the department.
Nuances of research writing and the processes of research are discussed in class. Students are encouraged to think critically and come up with new questions to engage with. Our students also engage in Summer Internship Projects (SIP), an initiative of the Centre for Research (CFR) in the college. The department faculty mentor these projects. Some of these projects undertaken in the past include:
The department ensures that the teaching process follows a well-planned mechanism. For this, each faculty member prepares lesson plans and reading lists, which are shared with students. All curricular and curricular enrichment initiatives are also planned well in advance, at the beginning of the semester. Remedial classes are organized at regular intervals, to address curricular concerns of students requiring extra attention.
There is a significant use of ICT tools. For instance, the faculty use Google Classroom for a structured curriculum delivery. Additionally, study material, audio-visual resources and weblinks are given to students to supplement classroom lectures.
