ACTIVITY BASED TEACHING IN ENGINEERING EDUCATION

P. Subhashitha, B. Sujatha

Abstract


Each student is unique. In a classroom of sixty members, one cannot guarantee a common skillset.  In such a scenario, observing different understanding levels, learning, analysing and applying styles is quite obvious. Teaching such a diversified group, effectively, is definitely a challenging job to any teacher. In this context, one should realize that teaching and learning are different. Good teaching might not always ensure good learning. Hence, effective teaching focusses more on helping the students learn better than about a teacher to teach better. This paper throws light on the activity based education which can help the students to learn better.
