Teaching & Learning Methods

KPRIT always focuses on student-centric teaching and learning. The Teacher’s promote self-management knowledge, holistic development and skill formation by adopting student centric methods like experiential, participatory learning and problem-solving methodologies in their teaching learning process. The teaching method varies from person to person and from course to course. However there has been a paradigm shift in teaching from purely chalk and talk methods to adopting a judicious mix of lecture method and modern pedagogies. KPRIT encourages methodologies which will be helpful for enhancing the learning experiences of students to implement Outcome Based Education.

Experiential Learning:

Students and Faculty are encouraged to make the test on the concepts learnt in the theory subjects. Which helps in enhancing their practical knowledge and built confidence about the concepts learnt. In order to bridge the gap between institution and industry the students are being taught content beyond the syllabus and make them to practice. In addition, slots have been given to the students to carry out these activities with the support of highly qualified staff by providing Online E- Resources for enhancing their skills, subject knowledge. Students undergo internships during the semester breaks in relevance industries to gain practical experience of the technology being used. They are also taken to the industries to gain industrial exposure and hands on experience with practical implementation on the latest technologies which empower the students to meet the industry requirements. Methods such as WIT-WIL, Lab Protocol, Animations are implemented in the teaching learning process by the faculty of KPRIT.

Participative learning:

KPRIT made teaching learning process more interesting by Learner centric methods such as case study, debates, seminars, presentations etc., We also adopt Open House, Shadow Engineering, role play, Group discussion, Cooperative, Collaborative, Project Based and Problem Based learning methods to accelerate the learning process.

Problem solving methodologies:

Every student is being taught about the basic approach to solve any issues which he or she comes across. Problem solving techniques such as Problem identification, Defining the Goals, conducting Brainstorming sessions, identifying alternative solutions, choosing the right approach, applying the right technique to achieve the solutions and Evaluating the results before dissipation. Problem solving skills being the most valued skills in the workforce, learning about the methods will enable to recognize the existing approach in use and or to identify other approaches that could be useful to yield better results by the student. One Minute Paper, Course based projects are the problem solving methodologies implemented for the effective enhancement of learning levels of the students.

Teachers of KPRIT uses ICT enabled Teaching tools for the effective learning process. In this process, the ICT enabled infrastructure, plays a vital role. Availability of quality audio-video systems and multimedia projectors in all classrooms facilitates the faculty member to carry out their teaching. Use of PowerPoint, excel spreadsheets, videos, and online databases in classrooms help the students to master subjects with greater clarity in the application of the concepts. It is only through education and the integration of ICT in education that one can teach students to be participants in the growth process in this era of rapid change. ICT make education system more productive, interesting, give more powerful instruction and also able to extent the educational opportunities to masses and creating information –rich learning environment. To ensure that students play an active role in the learning process, Faculty make use of Information and communication technologies (ICT) in teaching learning process. Innovative pedagogies are implemented by the teachers for enhancement of student involvement and effective participation. The following are the detailed technologies and innovative methods adopted by the teachers for effective teaching and learning:

  1. Course based projects
  2. WIT WIL
  3. Lab protocol
  4. Open house
  5. Shadow Engineering
