Criterion 2 - Teaching-Learning and Evaluation

Key Indicator - 2.3 Teaching - Learning Process


Student centric methods, such as experiential learning, participative learning and problem solving methodologies are used for enhancing learning experience and teachers use ICT- enabled tools including online resources for effective teaching and learning process

Student Centric Methods :

The foundational concept in an educational framework is to give prime importance for providing all round development of students. This focused and student centric approach is reflected in our policies too. The importance of academic excellence is to teach the students while concurrently learning human values, professional ethics, discipline, inventiveness and personality progress during their study period and continue throughout life. Integrating formal and informal learning approaches provides wide opportunities more than just classroom knowledge, but also helps to apply this knowledge in the real world.

Experiential learning:

Micro Projects: “Project Based learning”

Micro Projects are a small version of project based learning focused on the real time application and provide possibly to integrate the previously acquired knowledge. Micro Projects is carried out among the small groups ie 3-4students.

Professional clubs:

Every department has a professional club run by the students themselves. Hackathons, Tech fests, SUPRA SAEIndia, Robowar, Aero design challenge are organized every year. Through these competitions students gain practical knowledge and design experience.

Participative learning:


In MLRIT, starting from first year to fourth year seminars is conducted for students to improve their presentation skills, communication skills and inter personal skills. In addition, such opportunities help to the students to prepare and understand the latest technologies and other updates.

Problem solving methodologies:

COTs– Concept Oriented Tutorials to improve Higher Order Thinking Skills It’s noted that deficiencies exist in enhancing problem solving skills. The traditional model lacks in providing sufficient motivation for engineering undergraduates. COTs activity is aimed at developing the critical and analytical skills where students are expected not only to understand what they read but also pick it apart, analyze, evaluate and assess.

EPICS “Engineering Projects in Community Service”

This is one unique program were students are connect to community and try to design/ build and deploy systems to solve community -based problems in teams.

Information and communication technology (ICT):

Information and communication technology (ICT) in education is available on the MLRIT campus to assist, enhance, and optimize educational delivery. The Learning Management System (LMS), and was effortlessly utilized by faculty and students because of the training programs that were conducted.

The system will assess the need of mentoring of the students and a proactive approach will be followed and if needed even a professional from outside will be hired for the sessions. The purpose of the mentoring will be improvement in academic performance, developments of new skills, confidence etc., among students. Slow and advance learners are identified by based on their previous academic performances.

For mentorship; the following procedure shall be followed at MLRIT:

1. Mentor will be nominated for an average of 20 students.
