Curriculum Review Feedback
Regulatory bodies like UGC, AICTE and NAAC have directed to design standard policies for regulating and enhancing the performance coefficient of educational Institutes. Collecting feedback from various stakeholders has been a challenging task. The students being the key stake holders are apprehensive about the anticipated outcomes of the curriculum designing and syllabus. The IQAC cell collects customary feedback on curriculum and syllabus from various stake holders comprising of students, teachers, alumnae and employers in different modes like online feedback through Google forms, Institute’s web portal and written feedback.
Feedback Scrutiny Process
The collected feedback is scrutinized for continuous improvement in curriculum design and the subsequent recommendations and suggestions are communicated to the Dean, faculty council members and Board of Studies for consideration in the forthcoming curriculum revision.
The important aspect of this feedback is to equip every student with competent and qualitative teaching-learning methodologies thereby leading to radiant academic, social and individual progression.
• Curriculum development comprises of the following phases
• Stakeholder’s feedback (Students, Teachers, Alumnae and Employers)
• Feedback Analysis
• Requirement Analysis
• Academic policies and benchmarks
• Board of Studies
• Finalization and implementation of curriculum
Separate questionnaires for the students, teachers, alumnae and employers are prepared by an expert team headed by the Head of the Institution, IQAC Coordinator, Chairpersons of various boards and subject experts. The feedback questionnaires consist of components relevant to the stakeholders and the statements are rated by the stakeholders on a five-point scale: Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair and Poor.
Stakeholders' Feedback-Impact on the Institution
The feedback from the key stack holders – students has a positive impact in bridging the gap between industrial requirements and academics. Teaching community feedback reflects the ability of any Institution in incorporating new topics in the syllabus, adoption of new techniques and strategies in teaching and opportunities for research activities. The alumnae feedback has an encouraging positive impact in the improvement of Industrial Oriented Projects, Advanced skills and Training, students’ communication skills, extracurricular activities through various club activities like NSS/Sports/NCC and many others. The employers are connecting link between the class room atmosphere and the public domain. The employers’ feedback is very crucial in deciding the enrolment of the students in various industrial sectors and software arena.
