Note: At U.G. level for I and II year students (a) English is compulsory and (b) They have
to choose one of the languages as their second language out of the six languages available :
Additional English, Marathi, Hindi, Sanskrit, Russian and Pali.

2. To what extent are the programme options career oriented?


     B.A. – Functional English and Geography are specially carrier oriented.
     B.Sc – Microbiology, Fishery science, Analytical Chemistry, Electronics and Computer
     Science are also career oriented.
     B.C.A. and B.C.S. are totally career oriented courses, so also B.Com.
     Traditional courses are also useful as minimum requirement for getting jobs now-a-
     days is graduation. Those who want to study further are also benefited. Thus, almost all
     the courses run by our college create job opportunities in their fields.

3. Do students have flexibility to pursue a programme with reference to :

i. Time frame

     This is decided by the University.

ii. Horizontal mobility

     This is also decided by the University.

iii. Elective options

     Students are permitted to opt for any combination of subjects as mentioned in point
     number 01 above.

iv. Non-core options


4. How are the college mission and goals, if any (other than the general transmission and
   generation of knowledge), reflected through the curricula?

     1. College mission and goals are reflected through curricula. Such courses are available
        in all the faculties e.g. in the Arts Faculty subjects such as Sociology, History,
        Political Science make students aware of our traditional values / contemporary
        problems. In the Commerce Faculty, subjects like Enterepreneurship, Taxation,

Rajarshi Shahu College, Latur – 413 512 (Maharashtra)                                     11

        Secretarial Practice etc. can give students confidence to start their own business /
        enterprise. In the Science Faculty, one of the objectives of the institution viz.
        Development of Scientific Temper is clearly reflected through the curricula. Another
        of the objective of the institution – to create / have job oriented courses is clearly
        reflected through BCA / BCS curricula. It is, therefore, safe to say that many of the
        aims and objectives of the institution are reflected through the curricula designed by
        the University.

5. Is there any mechanism to obtain feedback from academic peers and employers on the
   teaching programmes?

     Yes         No

     If yes, how is the feedback used in the initiation, review and redesigning of teaching
     programmes? Give details.

     We have informal feedback mechanism in which suggestions made by our teachers are
     discussed with the seventeen teaches from our college, who represent various academic /
     managerial bodies of the university. The informal suggestions made by our teachers
     centre on the needs of the student community and changing times. These suggestions
     are communicated to the university through these seventeen members, so as to make
     teaching / learning process more meaningful and useful to the students of this region.
     (For a list of these seventeen members kindly refer to Criterion II: Teaching-Learning
     and Evaluation, Point No. 20)

6. How long does it take for the college to introduce a new programme within the present
   university system?

     About one year.

7. Has the college introduced any new courses inspite of delay in university processes?

     Yes         No

     If yes, give details.

8. Give details of college-industry-neighbourhood networking, if any.

     Functional English as well as B.Sc / B.Com / B.A. / B.C.A. / B.C.S. students sometimes
     visit, with their teachers, industries, newspaper offices, T.V. Centre (EMRC
     Hyderabad), Hotels, Hospitals in and outside Latur. For some of the courses at U.G.
     level and for P.G. courses one project is compulsory as partial fulfilment of their
     studies. As a result, our students visit above mentioned places and develope good
     rapport with the industrial and business establishment and prepare their project
     reports. Some of our former teachers and students also have industries in the Industrial
     Area of Latur. They whole heartedly cooperated with us. In addition to this, our NSS
     and two NCC units, over the years, are maintaining cordial relations with the
     neighbouring villages. This has helped to maintain a favourable equation with the
     industry / business establishment and the common masses.

9. Furnish details on the following aspects of curriculum design :

i. Innovation such as modular curricula:

     Through participation and organisation in workshop for curricular development. For
     example, we organised Workshop on Emerging Trends and Problems in Higher
     Education on 29, 30 November, 1997 and State Level Conference on Curriculum
     Development in Physics on 2,3 May 2002. The teachers of Microbiology, Botany,
     Physics, Russian Language and Mathematics participated in the Workshop / Seminar
     on curriculum development. Many of our teachers, as mentioned earlier, serve as
     Chairman / Member / Expert of BOS in various subjects.

ii. Interdisciplinary/ multidisciplinary approach :

     Courses such as B.Sc, B.Com, B.C.A. B.C.S. are basically interdisciplinary. So,
     teachers of the Departments of Mathematics, Electronics, Languages, Economics
     engage classes for various courses. In addition to this, teachers belonging to different
     Departments are invited to deliver lectures.

10. Any other highlights :

     a) There is harmony among all the teaching and non-teaching staff. For all functions of
        the college, staff and students work in a team spirit. From time to time the Staff
        Academy arranges lectures by our teachers to inculcate the spirit of
        interdisciplinary approach.

          The College has also organised Seminar / Symposium on
     a)    “Uses of Microorganism in Biotechnology” on December 9, 1990.
     b)    “Recent trends in Biotechnology for rural and industrial development” on March
           20,21, 1999.
     c)    “Assessment of Environmental Pollution due to Industrialisation and
           Urbanisation” on February 10,11, 2001.
     d)    “Review of constitution of India” on 10,11,12 February, 2001.
     e)    “Satyashodhaki Sahitya” on 17, 18 February, 2001.

     Yes        No

     disadvantaged students special classes are conducted. Extra time is allowed for
     BCS/BCA students to come at par with other students.

     c. How are advanced learners challenged to work ahead of the rest?

     Advanced learners are challenged to work ahead of the rest through different means.
     The college tries to help the promising bright students by (a) giving them additional
     borrower’s tickets and frequently monitoring their progress (b) arranging to get them
     merit scholarships and financial help from donors (c) additional borrower’s ticket is
     also given to those who excel in co-curricular, extra-curricular activities. (d) cash
     prizes are also given to the toppers in pre-annual examination conducted by the college

3. Does the college encourage the teachers to make a teaching-plan?

     Yes        No

     If yes, when and how is it made?

     The college has a formal teaching plan. At the beginning of every academic year, a
     diary is given to all the teachers. It is mandatory on the part of the teachers to write
     their annual teaching plan, for all the paper, in this diary. Every HOD goes through
     this diary in order to help implement the teaching plan. As per the General Time-Table
     for all subjects, HOD allots papers to his / her colleagues. A copy of individual
     teacher’s time-table is also submitted to the office. The content and depth of knowledge
     and progress in covering the syllabi is reviewed in the faculty-wise coordination
     committee meetings.

     techniques such as educational tours. Whenever college organises seminars /

     work on projects. We see to it that there is a greater involvement of teachers and
     students in the teaching, learning process by adopting means like drilling method,
