Teaching Learning Centre
The College has been sanctioned a Teaching Learning Centre (TLC) under the aegis of the Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching (PMMMNMTT, MHRD) in 2017. The Centre runs along the mission objectives and the guidelines set up by the MHRD and has at its core the idea of facilitating teaching learning process to the teachers across the country, especially those located in the remote areas of the country.
In the University of Delhi, only 2 institutions received the prestigious opportunity to set up Teaching Learning Centre (TLC) within their premises, one of them being Ramanujan College. The Teaching Learning Center (TLC), Ramanujan College is playing a vital role in prioritising academic excellence through training programs for teachers. The TLC Ramanujan College is helping faculty members to not only undergo specific training programs but also enabled them to become trainers.
The TLC, Ramanujan College has organized a total of 20 workshops/Faculty Development Programmes/ Faculty Induction Programmes from April 2018 – March 2019. There were a total of 894 participants during the academic year 2018-19, who attended the FDPs and they were from states of Meghalaya, Jammu & Kashmir, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Uttar Pradesh & West Bengal. The TLC invited more than 250 resource persons of repute and academic excellence for these programmes.
TLC, Ramanujan College is equipped with a modern state of art auditorium, conference rooms and ICT enabled class rooms. The training programmes through TLC Ramanujan College are based on strong pedagogies, rigorous practices and robust methodologies. This ensures and enriches the teaching quality of the participants and helps them in becoming successful teachers, trainers and guide. We devise various means to ensure healthy learning atmosphere and a high average attendance of participants.
In our constant endeavour to make the participants own the programme and ensure a high level of engagement and participation, daily quiz/assignments are conducted. This helps the participant to review the topics already discussed. Quizzes help the organisers to review the engagement levels of the participants. The resource persons are involved in designing the quiz questions to ensure utmost seriousness. There is a regular follow up with the participants through the creation of a Google Group/Classroom for each project initiated; regular interaction with the participants about how they are implementing the learning assimilated during the programs/projects. The ICT component is also included in every programme of the centre. The MHRD has suggested a wide range of 12 modules which are included the FIPs conducted by our centre.
All the FDPs were successful and had a positive response from all the participants, specially the one month faculty induction programmes through which the newly appointed teachers could develop new and unique skills for making their classroom teaching more effective. They knew about how to reduce stress while teaching and at the same time to remain happy while teaching. All the FDPs covered a wide range of topics spanning from the use of ICT in education, using and introducing the participants to new softwares like SPSS, LaTeX etc., conducting research in mathematical sciences, social sciences and making use of statistical tools. The TLC (Ramanujan College) in these 20 FDPs has tried to cover every aspect whether in the field of technology, education, happiness, etc.
All the Participants agreed to the fact that all the FDP sessions were lively & interactive, the concepts which were being taught were something new to them which they earlier were not exposed to, and a majority of them agreed that their overall knowledge level had increased from the FDPs and attending these programs was really beneficial for their further research & policies.
