a. Course Monitoring:
Course monitoring is an exercise to check with students during the semester to obtain feedback from students in the class about any problems in instruction and coverage of syllabus in each course, and also about any other problems in facilities like canteen, library etc.
The committee consisting of HOD and a senior faculty member visit each class, once after 6 weeks after start of the semester and in the 11 or 12th week to get the feedback.
Students are asked if they feel that instruction is not satisfactory in any subjects, and to mention the specific problems. Opinion of students regarding faculty in terms of percentage is also taken in those subjects. General opinion on facilities like library, canteen is also obtained in each visit.
Action: In the first visit, if most of the students opine that instruction is poor in one or more subjects, HOD issues a letter to the concerned teacher about the feedback and emphasizes the need to improve in specific areas. HOD gathers opinion of students after 5 or 6 periods. If students are still not satisfied, the teacher is changed for that subject.
After each visit, teachers with unsatisfactory feedback are counselled.
If the complaint is of a minor nature like audibility or solving only a few problems etc, the teachers are counselled. If instruction is poor, a letter is issued mentioning the aspects to improve.
For problems regarding facilities, HOD brings to the notice of the in charge of the facility or Principal when necessary.
