The key role of a teacher is to teach, which can be understood as meaning to facilitate learning of some target curriculum. Teaching is therefore intimately tied to notions of learning and there is a sense that if students do not learn then whatever the teacher is doing does not deserve the label of ‘teaching’. The use of innovative methods in educational institutions has the potential not only to improve education, but also to empower people, strengthen governance and galvanize the effort to achieve the human development goals for the country.
Traditional Teaching Method:
In the pre-technology education context the teacher is the sender, the educational material is the information and the student is the receiver of the information. In terms of the delivery medium, the educator can deliver the message via the “chalk-and- talk” method and LCD projector transparencies. This learning perspective is a popular technique, which has been used for decades as an educational strategy in all institutions of learning. Basically teacher controls the instructional process, the content is delivered to the entire class and the teacher tends to emphasize factual knowledge.
D-Space has been created in CAYm3 as information source for students where they can explore research papers of faculties and various lectures delivered by faculties, so course material and Lab manuals are being uploaded to D-Space for ready access to students.
Statement of Clear Goals:
Teaching process is effective when it is tied to learning of students then only it is said to be outcome based teaching learning process. We follow the following procedures to achieve the outcomes.
· The institution is affiliated with Rajasthan Technical University. The ECE Branch of the institution has to follow the prescribed syllabus and scheme which is framed by the university.
· Course outcomes are framed accordingly by the faculty members.
· The course outcomes are interlinked with POs and PSOs.
· Mappings of POs and PSOs with curriculum are available in the department.
· Course outcomes and Program outcomes are mapped. The attainment levels of the university curriculum in terms of individual course(s) and POs are identified. Outcome assessment methods include, but are not limited to midterm examinations, quizzes, university examinations and laboratory examinations.
· This assessment (followed by the data analysis in terms of midterm marks, university results analysis) ensures compliance of the university curriculum, POs and PSOs.
· The gaps are reviewed by the DPAQIC and suitable measures are recommended and devised by DPAQIC to bridge the gap in the form of theory, practical and sessional course work, beyond syllabus teaching, expert lectures and co-curricular activities.
Mapping of Curriculum Courses with POs is carried out in order to :
· Enable assessment of attainment of POs from the attainment of COs
· To identify curricular gap in attainment of POs and PSOs, and to design additional learning material/exercise/ activities to fill the curricular gap.
INNOVATIVE METHODS OF LEARNING
Following innovative learning methods are initiated and implemented by the faculty for students to learn in a better manner.
