Workshop on Perspective Planning


The IQAC organised  a workshop in Perspective Planning. Dr Agnes  D'Costa led the participants and shared the philosophical bases of perspective planning which included expectations of National Curricular Framework for Teacher Education 2009, UNESCO goals of education, vision of XII Five Year Plan with respect to Higher Education Institutes and the vision of the CCR. The participants examined the KSV3 approach to planning and had a discussion on its various facets. Sample plans were scrutinized and modifications were suggested. The faculty has undertaken the responsibility of preparing  perspective plans for their own Departments. A perspective plan for the college will be drawn by the IQAC.

Kindly see  this file  before you prepare your perspective planning. The document will give a view of expectations of NAAC and help to prepare quality based perspective plans.
