FACULTY DEVELOPMENT and Quality Enhancement Seminars, Workshops
Arranged several seminars, workshops and trainings to equip the faculty with the latest techniques pertaining to Teaching Methodologies, Research techniques, Preparation of Synopsis, writing of Thesis, Research papers, Research Ethics, Quality of Question papers, Evaluation Techniques etc.
INITIATION OF SELF ASSESSMENT EXERCISE
Initiated Self Assessment procedure in each department of the University with demonstration as how to conduct this activity in the light of Program Mission Statement, Program objectives and expected out comes. The exercise was based on 8 criteria including Teacher Evaluation, Course Evaluation, laboratories and computing facilities, Student Support and guidance, Process control and Institutional support. The Self Assessment Report (SAR) comprised 10 proformae including Teachers Evaluation Proforma, Course Evaluation Proforma, Graduating Student survey, Research Student Survey, Alumni
Survey, Faculty Survey, Employer Survey and the Department offering PHD degree survey. A Model Self Assessment Report pertaining to Pathology department was edited for the guidance of other departments.
EVALUATION OF SELF ASSESSMENT REPORTS
Evaluated SARs prepared by different departments of the University in light of Self Assessment Manual prescribed by the Higher Education Commission. Inspite of resistance from the faculty, we succeeded to convince all the departments to prepare the SARs, which were reviewed by me before their final submission to the Vice Chancellor, Higher Education Commission and the External Assessment Teams (Quality Audit Teams). Later on Executive summaries of each SAR was also prepared for the perusal of the Vice Chancellor with implementation plan based on recommendations of the Assessment Teams.
EVALUATED QUALITY OF Ph. D, M. Phil., M. Sc. HONS., & M.Sc. SYNOPSES
To improve quality of research, I evaluated Ph.D., M. Phil. and M.Sc. synopses to verify their quality in terms of standard of research, relevancy to the current problems, techniques used, rational of the study, standard of writing and socioeconomic importance of research.
EVALUATED QUALITY OF Ph. D, M. Phil., M.Sc. HONS., & M.SC. THESES
In the present Capacity, I regularly evaluate Ph.D., M. Phil. and M.Sc. dissertations to verify quantum and standard of research in the light of respective synopses, thesis format, university policy, research ethics, plagiarism, techniques employed, statistical analyses, interpretation of results and discussion.
COURSE SPLIT SCHEDULES/CLASS DISCIPLINE
Evaluated Course split schedules submitted by the faculty at the start of each semester to ensure that course contents of both theory and practical have been incorporated in the week wise and lecture wise break up of the course. Besides I with the assistance of Assistant Director QEC monitored the faculty to ensure that the split schedule is followed in letter and spirit.
REVIEW OF COURSE FILES AND THEIR EVALUATION
Each faculty was required to submit a course file including contents of the course taught, Split schedule, Mid term, Final term and Practical paper, marking keys for these papers, Titles of the Assignments, Quizzes given to class, grading policy, grading sheets, Award lists, problems faced etc at the end of each semester. These course files were reviewed by me to audit the quality of question papers, evaluation of the marking procedure, quantum of the course contents covered and the standard of practical enabling the students to coup with filed problems independently.
MEETINGS OF VICE CHANCELLOR WITH THE DEANS/HODs
Supported the Director Quality Enhancement Cell and the Vice Chancellor in convening yearly review meetings to evaluate academic and research progress of each department and faculty with the ultimate objectives of improving quality through awards/punishment and on spot problem solution.
