Best Practice-I

Personalized Student Guidance Program

Title of the Practice: “Personalized Student Guidance Program”

Objectives of the Practice:

  1. Increase the number of contact hours between mentors and students.
  2. Maintain accurate academic and attendance records for each student.
  3. Distinguish between slow learners and advanced students.

Context: The “Personalized Student Guidance Program” was initiated by the institute in alignment with the recommendations of the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) in Higher Education. The implementation of this program was considered essential for effective college management. Over the past three years, the program has been successfully integrated, aiming to understand and maximize the potential of each student, especially within a diverse student population, both educationally and economically.

Practice: The initiation of this system was spearheaded by the IQAC. Students’ names are annually collected and organized based on their subject preferences. Subsequently, they are grouped into cohorts of 20, with each group assigned a dedicated teacher/mentor. The mentor assumes responsibility for gathering comprehensive information about individual students’ academic performance and class attendance. The mentor is expected to provide guidance and counseling as required, and in certain cases, parents are invited to special meetings with the principal based on the mentor’s advice.

Additionally, senior faculty members or groups of faculty members engage in formal or informal mentoring relationships. This form of informal mentoring may also extend to colleagues from higher education institutions who share common interests and roles. Peer mentors or co-mentors contribute by exchanging information, resources, and feedback, thereby fostering a supportive environment for professional and academic development.

Evidence of Success:

  1. Improved Teacher-Student Relationships: Despite the program being relatively recent, there has been a significant improvement in teacher-student relationships. The personalized attention provided by mentors has contributed to a more supportive and understanding academic environment.

  2. Effective Differentiation of Learning Levels: The program has proven effective in identifying and distinguishing between slow and advanced learners. This distinction has enabled the institute to organize targeted remedial classes for students with specific academic needs, contributing to a more systematic approach to addressing learning gaps.

  3. Reduction in Dropout Rates: The proactive approach of mentors, intervening before students fall below attendance thresholds or become chronically absent, has resulted in a noticeable decrease in the number of students dropping out of school. This early intervention has played a crucial role in supporting students who may face challenges in their academic journey.

In summary, the “Personalized Student Guidance Program” has demonstrated success in enhancing teacher-student relationships, effectively identifying and addressing learning needs, and contributing to a decline in dropout rates, showcasing its significance in fostering a supportive and inclusive learning environment within the institute.

Best Practice-II

Community Engagement Initiative through National Service Scheme

Title of the Practice: Community Engagement Initiative through National Service Scheme (N.S.S.)

Objectives: The primary objective is to instill moral and ethical values in students through service to humanity, ultimately nurturing responsible citizens of the nation.

The Context: The institute conducts its National Service Scheme (N.S.S.) activities during the academic session as a collaborative effort of N.S.S. volunteers under the active guidance and leadership of the program officer. The N.S.S. unit harnesses the enthusiasm of student youth to engage practically in adopted villages, with the aim of raising awareness in rural communities about education and disease prevention.

The Practice: At MTCET, an N.S.S. committee is formed, with the principal serving as the chairman and a senior faculty member as the program officer. The N.S.S. conducts a range of activities in nearby adopted villages and within the institution. MTCET encourages students to interact with neighboring communities to explore opportunities for involvement in social work. The institution arranges blood donation camps and health check-up camps periodically, including special commemorative days.

Evidence of Success: Over the past five years, MTCET’s college N.S.S. unit has organized various activities, including unit camps, district camps, special camps, and celebrations of special days. These activities have noticeably transformed the personalities of the students. The college has established a systematic mechanism to actively engage students in social movements and activities through its N.S.S. programs. In the last five years, a total of 49 activities have been organized, with active participation from government officials and higher authorities.

Summary of the Activities:

  • Awards and Certificates: The N.S.S. unit has received awards for its extension activities, including the Best N.S.S. Unit Awards from Sri Vijgnana Vedika, Best N.S.S. Program Officer in Azadika Amrit Mahotsav, Republic Day celebrations, Kishori Vikasam, and the Uttamasevak award from Swachh Bharat Mission. Additionally, many students have received certificates for their contributions to N.S.S. activities.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required: Engaging in service to humanity is considered service to God. Although N.S.S. volunteers are directed to work for the betterment of the community and society, there are always challenges and expectations to fulfill in serving the people. Some common challenges may include logistical issues, resource constraints, and the need for continuous support from both the institution and the community. To address these challenges, ongoing support, collaboration with local authorities, and securing additional resources may be required. Clear communication and the establishment of sustainable partnerships can enhance the effectiveness of the N.S.S. initiatives. Additionally, recognizing and appreciating the efforts of volunteers through incentives and acknowledging their impact on the community can contribute to the success and sustainability of the program.
