Course Delivery Methods:  

  • Conventional Chalk and talk method.  
  • Power Point / Keynote presentation through i-PAD 
  •  E-learning/e-Shikshana by VTU  
  • ICT (Information Communications Technology) tools initiatives  
  • Seminars  
  • Mini / Major projects  
  • Technical Reports/Case studies,  
  • Simulations and experimental exercises  
  • Lab experimental work  
  • Video content  
  • Animations  
  • Self-learning  
  • Model based learning  
  • Activity based learning 

Individual learning: 

  • E-learning tools like NPTEL videos, SWAYAM, Coursera, IIT Bombay – Spoken Tutorial Project, etc. to let students learn independently and enhance classroom learning. Encouraged to enroll and get certification for add-on online courses for self-paced learning. 

Experiential learning:  

  • Student-centric learning is provided in the practical sessions to apply concepts learned in the classroom. 
  •  Internships/ Vocational training.  
  • Mini Projects, Final Year group Projects,  
  • Technical Fest and Workshops

  • Problem-based learning promotes students’ critical thinking to find solutions in real-life situations.  
  • Activities of Clubs and Societies, Professional Chapters and Department Associations bring additional values in understanding emerging trends in STEM areas in collaboration with relevant agencies.  
  • AICTE Activity point program as integrated in the curriculum. 

Problem-solving Methodologies:  

  • Teaching pedagogy is integrated with presentation from students to enrich students’ in presenting the concepts to get confidence and attain problem-solving skills.  
  • Assignments in higher level of thinking are given to the students to break down ideas into simpler parts and find evidence to support self-learning abilities.  
  • Quizzes are conducted to the students to instil the analytical skills and problem-solving skills.  
  • Through a structured mechanism the students are motivated to find out the solutions for real time problems via case studies, hackathons, and field/industrial projects.  
  • Field visits, In-plant trainings have been organized to make the students acquaint with industry standards and work ethics. Tutorial classes are conducted with collaborative learning for the students to improve their problem-solving ability. 

ICT Tools in the teaching learning process:  

  • All the classrooms & laboratories are ICT enabled fitted with apple TV & wi-fi, LCD projector and accessories. Separate Seminar hall for every department with multimedia facilities.  
  • Microsoft Teams platform is used for teaching-learning process. The blended mode and online mode are used.  
  • Every faculty are given with i-pads for content delivery and assessment in the classrooms.  
  • SJBIT portal integrated with Learning Management System (LMS) provides a single platform for all the stake holders to access the information. The notes, QB & solutions, videos, and other material are shared through LMS. The attendance, assessments and other details are also shared to the students and the parents via LMS.  
  • MOOC courses are part of the learning along with the regular curriculum.
