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 PSUs such as BHEL, BEL, ISRO, etc., and small-scale hardware industries to give brief information about the electronics manufacturing industry.
  3. Show Video/animation films to explain the functioning of various analog and digital circuits.
  4. Encourage collaborative (Group) 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.
