A group of students who volunteered are formed as a Quality Circle (QC) team, to find the problems, analyse the problems, implement solution alternatives and to sustain the same with suitable action plan. A student facilitator has been identified by themselves and he facilitates the requirements in implementation. A faculty facilitator collaborates with the Quality Circle for effective implementation of decisions taken by the QC. HOD of the department spearheads the changes required and facilitates the practice.
Students are exposed to mock interviews with the industrial experts belonging to the area of interest of the students. A ten point measurement scale is used for performance analysis. Formats specially designed by the industrialists are used to assess the students. Videos recorded during the process helps the students to develop interview strategies, improve communication skills and to learn how to answer difficult questions. It helps the students when they go for job interviews.
Posters & Gallery Walk
Students join as pairs and prepare posters in the interested topic in a subject and present them in the class room. Various topics prepared as posters are displayed and explained. Students actively participate, discuss, ask questions and get engaged on the topic of interest. Students read and discuss the previous group’s response and add content of their own. A faculty member monitors the students and provides clarity whenever needed. Sharing of knowledge, response to meaningful questions, documentations, image building, problem-solving capabilities are developed through this type of activity.
Peer to Peer Learning
Students are grouped as batches containing four or five members and are given a task. There’s no hard and fast rule with the methods adopted in peer learning. Students get an active and cooperative learning environment and become responsible not only for learning what is taught but also for helping team-mates learn. This encourages students to give and receive feedback and promotes positive interdependence. Students get an opportunity to evaluate each other’s learning and deeper understanding of new concepts. Each group works through the task until all the group members successfully understand and complete it.
