Teaching-Learning Process (General Instructions)

These are sample Strategies; which teachers can use to accelerate the attainment of the various course outcomes.

  1. Lecturer method (L) does not mean only the traditional lecture method, but a different type of teaching method may be adopted to develop the outcomes.
  2. Arrange visits to nearby sites to give brief information about the Civil Engineering structures.
  3. Show Video/animation films to explain the infrastructures and the mechanism involved in the principle.
  4. Encourage collaborative (Group Learning) Learning in the class.
  5. Ask at least three HOTS (Higher-order Thinking) questions in the class, which promotes critical thinking.
  6. Adopt Problem Based Learning (PBL), which fosters students’ Analytical skills, develop thinking skills such as the ability to evaluate, generalize, and analyze information rather than simply recall it.
  7. Topics will be introduced in multiple representations.
  8. Show the different ways to solve the same problem and encourage the students to come up with their own creative ways to solve them.
  9. Discuss how every concept can be applied to the real world – and when that’s possible, it helps improve the students’ understanding.
  10. Individual teachers can device innovative pedagogy to improve teaching-learning.

Course Outcomes:

(Course Skill Set) At the end of the course the student will be able to:

  • Understand the various fields of civil engineering.
  • Compute the resultant of a force system and resolution of a force.
  • Comprehend the action for forces, moments, and other types of loads on rigid bodies and compute the reactive forces.
  • Locate the centroid and compute the moment of inertia of regular and built-up sections.
  • Analyze the bodies in motion.
