5.5. Innovations by the Faculty in Teaching and Learning (20)

11/12/2020

  JIT, right from inception is insisting on innovative teaching-learning practice. All class rooms being equipped with LCD Projectors, WACOM Digital writing pads, thin client provision for class room and faculty are some of the infrastructural facilities to enable the innovative teaching and learning

Teaching Learning Process followed by mechanical department is designed and implemented in consultation with IQAC-JIT and in line with the formulated and circulated Innovative teaching learning policy to provide a quality rich learning environment for students. The innovation process of teaching and learning is focused on these categories.
  1. Knowledge oriented
  2. Skill oriented
  3. Employment oriented
  4. Value addition
The goal is to achieve a blend of above all at a right proportion. The Table shows some of the specific innovations carried out by different faculty during the assessment years.

A brief illustrative account of innovation carried out in each of the assessment year is given below CAYm2 (2017-18): Industrial Case study in FEM: The objective of topic “Introduction” in module -1 of FEM is all about the introduction of real time exposure. Mr. JVR who is handling the course for the past 5 years found the students are just mugging up the notes without much insight into the real time exposure.  Instead of the present traditional chalk & talk method of teaching, applications of FEM is clearly highlighted considering real life practical examples and the same has been analyzed using ANSYS version 14.5.2 covering static analysis like bracket, trusses, effect of stress concentration, dynamic problems like modal analysis of cantilever beam. Students are very much motivated and exposed in analyzing the practical applications of FEM compared with previous years. Real time case study on TQM: From the past experience of  the teacher who has handled TQM for many year  “Guru’s of TQM, Tools of TQM and Orthogonal arrays for robust engineering” are the less understood topics in spite best teaching.  On simple investigation this problem was found to be universal irrespective of the repute, experience and qualification of individual faculty. The faculty has explored an innovating “real time case study discussion” method to address this problem. A Check list of Guide lines, the relevant detailed data of M/s. Exide Industries where the faculty has exposed to successful implementation of Five S and Kaizen are shared with selective two teams of students. Each of the two teams was asked to identify TQM tools (without actually naming it) through investigative & explorative approach during the discussion. To teachers surprise both the team put together were able to identify around 60% of the tools. This initiative has changed the students thinking and their approaches towards Quality of the Product and service.  Students could understand about tact time and lead time, of the process how it will contribute to the system for continuous improvement.   CAYm1 (2018-19):.   Industrial Case study in FEM: The objective of topic “Introduction” in module -1 of FEM is all about the introduction of real time exposure. Mr. JVR who is handling the course for the past 5 years found the students are just mugging up the notes without much insight into the real time exposure.  Instead of the present traditional chalk & talk method of teaching, applications of FEM is clearly highlighted considering real life practical examples and the same has been analyzed using ANSYS version 14.5.2 covering static analysis like bracket, trusses, effect of stress concentration, dynamic problems like modal analysis of cantilever beam. Students are very much motivated and exposed in analyzing the practical applications of FEM compared with previous years.   Industrial case study in Dynamics of Machinery (DOM): The objective of the topic “Free vibration analysis” in module – 4 of DOM is all about the introduction to free vibration analysis and natural frequency. Mr JVR who is handling the course for the past 2 years found the students are just reading the definition of natural frequency along with derivation without much insight into the practical importance of natural frequency. Practical significance of natural frequency is highlighted considering real life practical examples like automobile suspension system vibration, modal analysis of aircraft wing using ANSYS 14.5.2 version. Students are very much motivated and exposed in analysing the practical importance of natural frequency and mode shapes compared with previous years. CAYm (2019-20):   Students being thought theoretical concepts of electronic system and the principle of operations at close proximity with mechanical actuators, devices and mechanisms their role in engineering application. Well every thing seems to be understood but when it come to real time integration its functionality there was a real challenge facing by student fraternity which was taken a close look to resolve, an initiative was taken from this subject point to make them better understand every component present in the electronic gadget,dismantle separate every component identify their role, functionality check, understanding circuit on PCB, Microcontroller type and  Specification related to individual components, hands on which provided an insight.   Due to the challenges the globe is facing with climatic change, ecological imbalance and in search of clean, green and safe form (sustainable Energy) at this juncture it’s been really an interesting exercise assigned to fresh engineers to realize the importance and potential of every source of energy that we consume. Question is that which is the best approach to harness and utilize energy? In search of this solution, I strongly recommend and addressed students before we tackle the above; we need to make use of available energy optimally and sensitively. With this a new exercise was planned and executed that every student have to provide a details of electrical energy in units sanctioned and consuming at their house on monthly chart , data collected, analyzed and identified the best possible way of utilizing the electrical energy needed on time basis. Experiments beyond Syllabus: In one of the interactions JIT management has expresses the ambition to conduct additional experiments in labs, wherever required, possible and feasible. The objective of this innovative initiation is to expose the students to the real world practical experience within the VTU syllabus framework. Accordingly some selected group of students in “Basic workshop” are asked to identify a semi project – to prepare simple products making use of available facilities in workshop and using processes that are learnt in workshop. FAN BLADES, FIRST AID BOX, JIT Emblem, WORK SHOP tittle display are some of the successful products come out of this initiative. Students have also produced simple report that includes objective, estimation, concept drawing and the proof of the final “WORKING Product”. Earlier to this initiative most of the students thought Workshop practice was an unwanted subject. But the entire batch of students (even those who have not participated) not only realized the importance of basic work shop but also motivated to explore the “products “further.
