At CORPORATE GROUP OF INSTITUTES, Bhopal, we use a variety of teaching methods which help to enhance best of the practices and help students to derive the best of the learning from their programs and courses. Every teaching department works with the objective of providing quality professional education by:
- soliciting state of the art teaching technology and infrastructure
- using the most current teaching techniques that fit best with student development needs
- prompting students to undertake analytical assignments with ‘hands on’ self learning
- training the faculty in contemporary teaching techniques
Before the start of the Academic session, the activities for the session are planned in advance and accommodated into the Academic Calendar. The academic schedule mentioned in the academic calendar is strictly followed.
All the classes begin on time and the students coming late are not given attendance. Qualified faculty members assigned with various theory subjects prepare course plans using the standard format provided by the institute with emphasis on:
- Topics in the Syllabus
- Example considering the applications in real life
- Latest developments
- 'Learning' of the students.
The classroom sessions are interactive and encourage the students to think independently and inspire their creativity. At our Institute a student has an opportunity for interactive learning rather than the usual “listen & learn” approach & the students are encouraged to actively participate in the teaching-learning process. Therefore the classroom instructions are supplemented by students' presentations and / or guest lectures by external/internal experts.
TheInstitute’s class rooms and lecture halls are well equipped with modern teaching aids like multimedia projectors and computers with Wi-Fi connectivity. Electronic teaching aids like the OHP & LCD projectors (Digital Light projectors) are being used to speed up the learning process.
The recorded video lectures of NPTL help the student to understand the process in highly visualized form. Attendance is taken by the faculty concerned at the beginning of each session.
The Institute is proud of its small group teaching methods, Tutorials, that give opportunities to the students to talk about material being taught, ask questions, and discusses material with their classmates and a designated tutor in a smaller group. These help in developing analytical, application, presentation and communication skills of the students.
The practical sessions are ideal testing grounds for students to apply and test the concepts taught. We impart the intensive training to the students in all the Modern laboratories and workshops, as this is the most important requirement for the students to fare well in their future careers.
Each department maintains its specialized labs, well equipped with modern equipment of industry standards. The Institute believes in imparting strong practical exposure to the students as per the syllabus of the University.
To help the students grasp the essence of an experiment, a batch of only 20/30 students is formed so that max 2 students conduct an experiment. The students are given informative and standardized laboratory manuals well in advance so that they can come prepared to the laboratory and obtain meaningful results.
Communication and language Labs meant exclusively for improving the communication skills of the students and are equipped with the latest video and audio recording facilities which help in providing practical training to students in communication skills.
Computer Centre with 120 Computers is also provided for the students to improve their computer literacy and to learn from the resources available online.
High level of discipline is maintained in the classroom. The faculty members are empowered to curb any disturbance and ensure that the time is used fruitfully. To this effect, students are expected to maintain decorum and refrain from causing any disturbance in the classroom.
Mobile phones are strictly prohibited in the campus. Students are advised not to carry cell phones in the premises.
Workshops, Seminars, Guest Lectures and Extension Lectures
Workshops, Seminars, Guest Lectures and Extension Lectures are conducted on all topics to provide a platform for deliberation and knowledge sharing. Best industrial and corporate professionals are brought to the campus to bring the practical and application practices from the actual working environment and give extra input to the students on the current topics as well as the topics which are relevant to their area of specialization. The seminar and workshops help in
- Developing the clarity of thought and confidence among students.
- Build better conceptual understanding and retention.
- Clarify doubts as the theory is inquisitively related to teaching techniques.
- Keep up students’ interest and to facilitate better understanding of processes and situations.
Group Discussion is one of the extensively used tools in selection process. At CIST, we pay extra attention to develop the GD skills by including it as an academic activity for assessment of students. So that they perform well in the business meeting and discussion and emerge as leaders.
Group discussion helps to
- Develop the interpersonal skills necessary for putting one’s point forward and listening to others in a group ie develops the ability to either convince others or get convinced.
- Increase awareness of the world wide events and how they affect one individually and as a society.
