#### Teaching-Learning Process (General Instructions)

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

- Apart from conventional lecture methods various types of innovative teaching techniques through videos, animation films may be adopted so that the delivered lesson can progress the students in theoretical, applied and practical skills in physics.
- State the necessity of physics in engineering studies and offer real life examples.
- Seminars and Quizzes may be arranged for students in respective subjects to develop skills.
- Encourage the students for group learning to improve their creativity and analytical skills.
- While teaching show how every concepts can be applied to the real world. This helps the students to expand understanding level.
- Support and guide the students for self-study.
- Ask some higher order thinking questions in the class, which promotes critical thinking.
- Inspire the students towards the studies by giving new ideas and examples.
