The Quality Improvement Programme conducted in the month of January was true to its purpose in improving the quality with regard to the preparation of the Course Plan. It was significant in developing a relatively better understanding of Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy and its application in the assessment process. Sessions taken by Experienced Faculty members like Dr Somu CS, Ms Ujjawala, Dr Shampa Dev and Dr Salu Dsouza were extremely insightful in enlightening us with new pedagogical methods, effective classroom management,framing the question papers.
