Teaching Methodology

Teaching and learning methods in higher education are undergoing rapid changes in recent past and have significant implications on the students’ learning experience.

Most of the professors believe that they are making progress toward a learning-centre model, as the instructors believe that implementation of active methodologies implies new functions in their teaching practice.


Teaching Methods

Various teaching methods are implemented at REVA University and they are:

Direct Instruction

In this method, teachers convey knowledge to their students primarily through lectures without considering student preferences or opportunities for hands-on or other types of learning.

Flipped Classrooms

Students are given the study material in advance and during classes, students will interact with the instructor to clarify their doubts about the material.

Kinesthetic Learning

In this method, students perform hands-on physical activities rather than listening to lectures or watching demonstrations. During practical, particularly in engineering and sciences, students work for lab practice.

Inquiry-Based Learning

In this method, teachers offer support and guidance as students work on projects that depend on them taking on a more active and participatory role in their own learning. This also provides project-based learning to the students.

Personalized Learning

Every faculty will provide some topics for self-learning during the subject delivery in the classrooms to have a better understanding of concepts. Also, teachers offer some traditional instructions as well as online material, while continually reviewing the students’ progress and meeting them to make any needed changes to their learning plans.

To provide more interaction in teaching learning, some of the methods are given below

  • To enthuse students, additional activities such as workshops, student club activities, short-term projects, quizzes, etc. are regularly encouraged.
  • Use of multi-media/AV (Audio-Visual)/ICT (Information and Communication Technology) based learning techniques
  • Inquiry-based learning through quizzing, MCQs, etc.
  • Student seminars and workshops
  • Availability of NPTEL (National Programme on Technology- Enhanced Learning for self-learning), Swayam, coursera, EdX etc.
  • Availability of E-resources for extra reading
  • Group Discussions- Group Learning-Assignments-Cooperative learning cycles
