Two Sessions are created to use for Library, mentoring, homework, submission, assignment and assessment.

For the Students
  • Instead of traditional method, let us practice problem based/ project based/ assignment based teaching-learning activity.
  • For the courses, where the result is poor, is given proportional weightage to make it up. Such courses may be divided for more number of faculty members. 
  • Keeping no link with the theory to conduct practicals. At any time 5 practicals could be conducted, with readymade manual in hand. More question-answering/ demonstration activity than passive lab experiment writing activity.
  • No guest lectures on the university syllabus coverage.
  • Department to encourage outside participation in happenings.
  • Flexibility to students on attending the class. However, work completion is must.
  • Follow-up and crosschecking on the originality of completion of the work is faculty/ mentor responsibility.
  • Keeping in touch with and updating the progress of the student to parents/ guardians by mentors.
  • Under any circumstances, not to penalize the students financially or in terms of any kind. However mentor may delete the student name from his list if any student/ parents feel so. Then the student is left to assume his own responsibilities.
For the Faculty/ Staff
  • Ask the question, am I doing what I am supposed to do? Or I am being driven by the people beyond my department.
  • Do I have (ready to learn) enough skills to perform the job better to my satisfaction?
  • What rules and whose suggestions are interfering my work.
  • How can I make myself happy so that, I perform better everyday and enjoy each moment?
  • The main objective is, to help and get helped to progress in the set direction and be happy.
