Best Practices

1. Best Practice -1:
1. Title of the Practice: Book Bank or Additional Borrowing Facility for Scheduled Caste /Scheduled Tribe, Needy and Topper Students
2. Objectives of the Practice: To support the academics of Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe, Needy and Topper Students of the college by making available the additional book borrowing limit from the Departmental Library to support and enhance their academic achievements.
3. The Context: Many students belonging to families of SC, ST and economically poor background have been found unable to afford purchasing books. To encourage them and to help them in study from the year 2013-14 till date the scheme is made available to Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe category students, needy and ten topper students from each dept.
4. The Practice: Under this scheme the eligible students were identified by getting the list from the admission section/concerned Head of the Departments. The eligible students were informed through notices/WA/emails/ communication in the class to get benefitted from the stated facility. The then eligible students were allowed to borrow two books of their choice from the departmental library for the period of 10 days (can either re-issue or return the borrowed book/s on expiry of 10 days).
5. Problems encountered and Resources Required: Additional book copies need to be purchased by library or donated by the departmental teachers to support the above scheme under the CBCS were not readily available in the market .

2. Best Practice -2:

1. Title of the Practice: LMS for all Students
2. Objectives of the Practice: To support the academics of all students in dual mode of off-line and on-line studies which has become the need of the day under newly adopted CBCS.
3. The Context: From the very beginning of the 2019-20 academic session the scheme was made available to all students of each and every dept. It has been observed that no students friendly book as per new syllabi under CBCS of the University of Calcutta was available in the market though CBCS was started since 2017-18 for BCOM and 2018-19 for BA and BSc. Therefore, all the teachers supplemented their lesson delivery with an addition component as text, audio, video of the lesson on the college website under academic resources. This resources helped our students during lockdown to prevent spread of coronavirus.
4. The Practice: Under this scheme all the students were informed through college notices and letter on through WA/emails to get benefitted from the learning materials available for them on the college website. All the departments of the college has been pro-active in preparing LMS and uploading in GCR or in the Website of the College so that the soft form of study materials are readily available to the students. Even Library has organised an orientation programme for students how to avail of the facilities.
5. Problems encountered and Resources Required: Some of the students do not have smart phones or network connectivity was poor in their localities so they could not avail of the said facilities by themselves properly, particularly during lockdown period.Principal has conducted an online survey and informed the internet provider about the poor internet connectivity and requested them verbally to improve the same for the benefit of students.
