3 Innovative in Curricular Design and transactions
Since Karnataka University prepares Curriculam, the college has no chance of transacting curriculum but it has adopted certain practices which are complementary to curriculum.
3.1 Co-ordinating research in the Curriculum
The college believes that participatory approach in learning where in the students involve themselves in identifying the problems, analyzing the causes and finding the solution will have a positive impact and will make learning process more meaningful and interesting. Each Department of the college, under the supervision of staff members undertakes field surveys with the help of students in their related fields. Each Department his conducting a minimum of 2 surveys at micro level in the region. This type of field survey undertaken by the Departments and students developed self confidence for independent research work and motivates them to undertake research project. This kind of exercise has certainly added value the curriculum.
3.2 Re grouping of the Subject Combinations
The Subject combination his made by the affiliating University itself but the college has the freedom of rearranging the subject combinations to accomodate student’s choice. This tendency of rearranging groups is to avoid subjects which students do not like. The college has given combinations and each student has to select any one group of combination. This practice has positive response from the students and there is considerable increase in the strength.
4. Inter disciplinary programmers started
In pursuit of our vision “to make our college a centre of higher learning for youths with spiritual and moral values” it sought to provide the opportunity to inculcate extra inputs by way of additional courses in the form of compulsory papers. The objective is to provide all students an opportunity to move across streams and to take up subjects to develop more in depth of knowledge in their subject. The affiliating university has also given permission to start following subject as compulsory to all students.
1. Indian Constitution
2. Human Development and Environmental Studies
3. Computer Applications
These courses gave an opportunity to the students to gain extra
edge in pursuit of their goals and aspirations.
5. Examination Reforms Implemented
5.1 One of the major component of our examination system is examinations. The education process in any discipline of learning ends with examinations. The Examination reforms in the college are not merely the techniques to the improve the evaluation system but to be viewed as an aim in improving the education process itself. The College has the practice of time schedule and transprant internal assessment system.
5.2 For evaluating students performance a lecturer conducts written test, home assignments, periodical quiz, seminars or any other assignments that lecturer considers it necessary for assessing the students performance.
5.3 the distribution of marks (20 marks of each semister) to various components of assessment will be decided by the concerned Department and will be announced in the class room.
5.4 Each lecturer conducts two such assessments for each class and each semister. The marks obtained by the students will be displayed on the notice board and the marks cards will be sent to the parents.
5.5 Regarding attendance of the students in the class concerned, lecturer announce that 80% attendance is necessary and below which the students will not be allowed to appear for the final year examinations.
5.6 Thus, the continous assessment of students through internal assessment encouraged the students to work more systematically through over the semister and the abilities that are not tested otherwise could be tested.
