Key Information

Pedagogy

Teachers use an array of effective teaching strategies because there is no single, universal approach that suits all students. Following strategies are used in combinations with different groups of students to improve their teaching-learning experience.

  • Blended Learning through Flipped classes with interactive learning strategies like Jigsaw Activity, Round Robin and Think Pair Share.
  • Experiential learning with sophisticated instruments.
  • Development of soft skills and communication skills through organization of Inter collegiate Departmental Festival by students – RASAYAN
  • Learn from Stalwarts
  • LMS such as Google classroom and Moodle are being used.
