 Best Practice of Raniganj Girls' College

Best Practice I

Academic Session 2018-19

Titleof the Practice: Organization of Theme based DepartmentalExhibitions

Objectivesof the Practice:

  1. Developing ananalytical mind and research oriented outlook and aptitude in students
  2. To impartspecialized knowledge by making learning an adventure
  3. To develop astudent's abilities in thinking by arousing interest and stimulatingimagination
  4. To develop astudent’s ability to relate to different ideas and reveal them clearly andeffectively wherever necessary.
  5. Inculcating thevirtues of team spirit, participation, collaboration, dedication andindependent learning among the students
  6. To sensitize thesociety to the current burning issues in the society.

 

TheContext:The traditional lecture and chalk and talk method of teaching in India hasoften encouraged a method of rote learning where the learners use memorization techniques based on repetition. On the otherhand, the modern approach to teaching involves the method of blendedlearning. Blended learning goes a step beyond rote learning and encouragesparticipatory or active learning among the students.  An exhibition is a perfect opportunity forparticipatory learning where the learners as a team can make an organisedpresentation based on a theme.

 

ThePractice:Each year the students’ representatives of the college organize the twin eventsof Freshers' Welcome and Annual Social function under the name of “Kristi”. Onthis occasion, the college sets up about 16 to 18 dedicated temporary stalls orkiosks in the college premises where the students of the different departmentsof the college participate and arrange for an exhibition based on a particulartheme. In the academic session 2017-2018, this theme based departmentalexhibition was organized on 7 th and 8 th November 2017.Again in the academic session 2018-19, the theme based departmental exhibitionwas held from 16th January 2019 to 18th January 2019. Thethemes that are chosen very often complement the curriculum of a given subject.

 

Obstaclesfaced/Problems encountered: Paucity of funds and resources forputting up the exhibition stalls of the departments.

 

Evidenceof Success: The exhibition is mostly spear-headed by thestudents of the different departments, occasionally consulting theirdepartmental teachers. The organization of such departmental exhibitions hasserved as a platform and opportunity for the students to present their talentsand potentials, to learn the nuances of team work and collaborative learning,understanding real life issues and for bonding and uniting the whole college asa single family.

Theenthusiasm of the students is also reflected in the choice of themes or topicson which departmental exhibitions have been organized and the subsequentorganized presentations made by the students in two successive academic yearsthat is 2017-18 and 2018-19 is given below in a tabular form are:


Best Practice II

2018-19

Title ofthe Practice: Inculcatingintegrity among the incumbents of the institution through birthday celebration

 

TheContext:In ourday to day affairs we often forget the role played by an individual incumbentin smooth functioning of the institution. The contribution of each individualincumbent, irrespective of his/her designation, builds that harmonious base onwhich the institution is founded. However, over time we imbibe the habit oftaking our co-workers for granted. It is only during their absence that we misstheir presence, efficiency and contribution. Quoting here the famous Americanindustrialist, Henry Ford, "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together isprogress. Working together is success".

Against this backdrop, thenecessity was felt by the Head of the institution to honour the contribution ofeach individual as well as build trust, harmony and a sense of belonging amongthe incumbents of the organization by celebrating the birthday of each incumbent.

 

Goals:

To patronize a friendly, cordialand homely work environment, basically informal in nature ensuring warmth andcheer.

To get well-acquainted withthe co-workers of the institution and celebrate the bond and cohesion thatexists among them.

To respect the contributionmade by each individual incumbent of the organization.

To build trust, harmony andbrotherhood among the teaching and non-teaching fraternity.

To instil a sense ofbelongingness to the organization.

 

ThePractice:ThePrincipal maintains a list of birthdays of all the members of the teaching andnon-teaching fraternity of the college and makes it a point to celebrate thebirthday of each individual incumbent. Each month on the occasion of thebirthday of an incumbent, all members of the college gather in the principal’schamber at the end of the day, where a small birthday celebration is organizedby blowing off candles and cutting the cake. The incumbent treats all themembers to token refreshments. The teaching and non-teaching staff celebratethe birthday of the head of the institution in a similar manner.

 

Obstaclesfaced/Problems encountered: No problems were encountered

 

Evidenceof Success:Theevidence of success is reflected in the spirited involvement of all the membersof the institution in everyday affairs, during important occasions like thevisit of an important guest or an important event of the college and alsoduring the hours of need of the institution.

 

Resources Required:Onlyspirited humane initiative

 

Academic Session 2019-20

Title of the Practice:Conduct of Internal Assessments in the online mode

 

Objectives of the Practice:

To acquaint the students with the digital world.

To get the students a hands-on experience of online examinations

To acquaint the students with the modalities of online examinations; the prevalent mode of conducting various competitive examinations leading to entry in service.

This will also pave the way for faster evaluation and systematic storage as well as retrieval of examination data.

This is also in line with the policy of our affiliating university to switch on to a completely paperless system

To make the students environment consciousness by not wasting paper made from pulp of woods.

The Context:In the modern world many important recruitment examinations are conducted online. But it has been our general observation that the majority of our students are not acquainted with the process and modalities of online examinations. Hence some of them were found to be less confident and having reservations in appearing in competitive examinations that are conducted online. Therefore it was decided that the learners should be exposed to the online examination system so that they can have a first-hand experience of the process.

 

ThePractice: The Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) comprising six semesters was initiated by Kazi Nazrul University in 2016-17. In this pattern of study, under each programme, the learners are assessed internally for 10 marks for each course in each semester. In the academic session 2018-19, the institution for the first time decided to conduct the internal assessment of the sixth semester students in certain courses in the online mode on an experimental basis. In the online mode of Internal Assessment, on the day of examination, the students were required to answer a set of 10 Multiple Choice Questions in each course and submit the same within a stipulated time frame. It was found that the additional advantage of conducting examination in this manner was that the results of the examinees were immediately generated online and later could beaccessed by the college authorities for future reference and uploading to theUniversity portal. Our institution being inspired by the level of success inthe maiden attempt, henceforth decided to carry out online internal assessmentsfor the fifth and sixth semester students in Honours courses (except Santali subject) in each academic session. Therefore, online internal assessments wereconducted for the fifth and sixth semester students in Honours courses (exceptSantali subject) in the academic session 2019-20.

 

Obstaclesfaced/Problems encountered:Initially there were some minor technical glitcheswhich were soon overcome by speedy redressal. The digital divide made some ofthe students a bit shaky in the beginning, but in course of time they tooacquired adequate confidence.

 

Evidenceof Success: Afterintroducing this practice online internal assessment it became very popularamong the students. The teachers also found the system to be a better one sofar as managing the answer scripts and award lists are concerned. Further conductingthe Internal Assessment in the online mode has emerged as a standard practice.

TheContext:On a regular visit to the Anganwadi Centres (C-45 & C-46) of the twoadopted villages of the National Service Scheme (NSS) Units, namely Banskatparaand Joratolpara in 2011, some NSS volunteers were shocked by the plight of the underprivilegedchildren there.It seemed obvious that the poor children did not have properaccess to books and other accessories needed for proper education. These volunteershailing from the Department of History of the college felt it to be their moralobligation to do something worthwhile for those disadvantaged children in theirhumble capacity. They approached their departmental teachers for guidance.After much deliberation, the students along with their teachers decided tocelebrate Children’s Day for the children of the adopted villages of the NSSunits of the college and on this occasion present each children with aneducation kit.

 

ThePractice:Starting in 2011, the “Children’s Day” celebrated by the Department of Historyfor almost ten years has always been an exclusive initiative of the students ofthe department. Each academic year, the students of the Department of History planand organize the event on 14thNovember in consultation with thePrincipal, the departmental teachers and the NSS Programme Officers.In case 14thNovember coincides with a holiday, the students make it a point to celebratethe event on some other date in the month of November.  For this occasion, the learners in theirmodest capacity contribute financially to purchase and later present educationkits to the children of the adopted villages of the NSS units.Sometimesteachers of the department too additionally help in the contribution.Thestudents first elicit information on the total number of children from theAnganwadi Centres of Banskatpara and Joratolpara and then proceed to purchasethe educational kits accordingly.The composition of the educational kit to bepresented to each child varies depending upon the aggregate fund collected. Sofar, it consisted of bags, books or writing accessories or a combination ofthese. The Children’s Day for the academic session 2019-20 was celebrated withchildren of the Banskatpara and Joratolpara on 14th November 2019.
