Student centric methods, experiential learning, participative learning and problem solving methodologies.

The Institution as a whole and faculty members in each department are making a well-intended and concerted effort to move away from the teacher-centric lecture method to the learner-centric alternative pedagogy. Paradigm shift is the significant change in the objectives of the course outline from Course Objectives to Specific Learning Outcomes for all courses. Creative facilitation of the Teaching-Learning process is done through participatory Learning Activities like Project Work, Seminars, documentary film making, creative assignments, extension activities, survey methods and Case studies. Except for lead lectures given by faculty members, learning is made student centric activities that contribute to self-management, knowledge development and skill formation at a personal and Interpersonal level activities. Group activities in Participatory learning include Peer teaching, Tutorials, Group discussion, Model making, Organizing exhibitions, Participating in Academic competitions, Interactive public lectures by eminent resource persons, Brainstorming, Role play, problem solving exercises, Field survey/industrial visits and Academic Debates. Intercollegiate and Interdepartmental academic programmes encourage the same in addition to bringing a competitive edge to the academic endeavour of the students. The use of Language laboratories, mind mapping, visits to Archaeological museums, temples, national parks, science centres gave real experiential Learning over factual concepts. Electives and inter departmental(NME) courses brought a competitive edge to the academic endeavour of the students.
