coordinator for the college.

Curriculum Gap Analysis, Modalities for DAB &

PAC Meetings, Framing Effective Action Items

Dr Shreeranga Bhat shed light on Gap Analysis and its relevance

to SAR. As a corrective action to the gaps identified ‘Content

Beyond Syllabus’ can be conducted. Issues regarding gaps in the

syllabus can be raised at PAC meetings and then discussed in DAB

meetings. Documentary evidence of the gaps communicated to the

university needs to be kept ready during the NBA visit. The key

steps to follow are Identify the gap, Create syllabus to bridge the

gap, Get approval from the HOD and Stakeholders,

Implementation and finally Assessment. He also gave his insights

on Curriculum Gap Analysis and Course Gap Analysis.

In regards to the topic ‘Modalities for DAB & PAC Meetings’, he

said that if the POs and PSOs were addressed in meetings then the

minutes of the meeting are to be recorded and communicated to

the university. He also mentioned that it is expected to conduct the

meeting within 20 days of announcement of results rather than

waiting for revaluation results.

Addressing the topic ‘Framing Effective Action Items’ he

requested the gathering to write the action items scientifically and

discussed some of the action items using examples. The session

ended with a group activity on writing action items.

“The importance of

identifying

and

documenting curriculum

gaps for an affiliated

institution was clearly

explained.”

offered by IUCEE

Question Paper Review Using Bloom’s

Taxonomy

The audience was asked to group themselves according to their

departments at the start of the session. Mr. Keith then asked the

each group to list their views on the following questions: 1.

Objectives of a good question paper, 2. Time to be allotted when

setting an internal question paper and 3. Do internal question

papers satisfy OBE criterion. Responses from each of the groups

were discussed and it was found that although OBE based teaching

is imparted in the classroom, there is a lack of OBE based

evaluation in the class internals.

Mr Keith stressed on the importance of student centric learning

cycles. Utilizing OBE based techniques in question paper setting

will automatically shift focus on student centric design thinking

and lead to achieving a higher level in Bloom’s taxonomy.

Each level in Bloom’s taxonomy was discussed and the

participants were asked to review the question papers they had set

in the previous semester. It was identified that although mapping

to lower levels of Bloom’s taxonomy was easier it does not

evaluate the students intelligence effectively hence the participants

were requested to think beyond level 2 in the taxonomy.

“The session shed light

on preparing an

effective question paper

which includes OBE”

about Course Outcomes (CO’s), course mapping with Programme

Outcomes(PO’s), Topic Level Outcomes (TLO’s), Active learning

and Assessment Techniques. In this context, Integra series hosted

a session by Mr Rolen Rodrigues, Asst Professor, EEE Dept. to

share his experiences on the design of course plan with CO-PO

mapping and TLOs.

The resource person started the session by posing a few queries to

the participants on what is OBE, Importance of Programme &

Course Outcomes etc. In his presentation, he clarified the various

doubts that arise in the mind of the course instructor while

preparing a course plan. Furthermore, he provided guidelines that

a course instructor could follow to formulate assessable and

measurable Course Outcomes. Speaking about devising of TLOs,

he said that assessment techniques form a prominent part in

understanding the learning levels of each topic by students. In a

nutshell, the session highlighted the importance of appropriate

CO- PO mapping and assessment of TLOs though active learning

techniques.

Mr Akshay N H gave a talk on a recent teaching methodology

called as gamification. Various fields in which gamification are

presently being used were explained such as such as business,

education, recruitment, marketing. Gamification is using game

dynamics in non-game applications. Three ingredients of

gamification involves motivation, mastery and trigger. Any game

or any activity which can be gamified must have the three

ingredients to succed. Motivation is where the consumer or the

student or the customer is motivated to play more or use the

application more. Example-Variable rewards and social

recognition. Mastery is where the consumer or student must feel

that he is developing a skill as he is advancing in the game or he

will have to learn prior to completing the next levels in the game.

Trigger is a part where the student or consumer must triggered to

come back and play the game or the activity which is gamified.

Speaker also stressed upon points as to how gamification helps

students develop their problem solving skills and group skills and

how gamification has become a part of recruitment which is

termed as ‘Recruitainment’.

A hands on session was conducted on how to create a mobile app

using the MIT App Inventor. As an activity all the participants

were asked to use their mobile phone and were given a step by step

procedure as to how to create a text to audio converter app. The
