Innovations in TLP

Use of Various instructional methods and pedagogical initiatives
  • The faculty are now oriented towards Outcome based Education (OBE) and are actively utilizing the OBE to cater the learning need of students by innovative methods.
  • The faculty of department adopts various innovative Teaching & Learning methodologies to create the best learning environment for students. These methodologies include traditional black board teaching, presentations, video lecturing, collaborative learning methods etc. as given below.

Lecture method and Interactive learning

  • The faculty use chalk and board and audio-visual aids in teaching. Students are encouraged to actively interact during the lecture hour by getting the doubts clarified. Further, students are also encouraged to give seminars relevant to the subjects which add to their presentation skills.

Project-based learning

  • During pre-final year, the students are encouraged to carry out mini projects and in the final year academic projects are executed under the guidance of faculty.

Computer-assisted learning

  • The department is equipped with sufficient number of computers, LCD projectors, internet facility, application software, system software and printers which are effectively used for teaching and learning. Faculty members are making effective use of sources like National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), internet sources for effective teaching.

Flipped Learning

  • The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures are viewed by students at home before the class session, while in-class time is devoted to exercises, projects or discussions. The details given below for the information.
