Student profile-entry level competency, socio-economic status,language proficiency etc-
Students are admitted strictly on merit and constitutional reservation basis.They largely come from rural background and low, middle income group. They are mostly proficient in vernacular language. Though the students prefer vernacular language(i.e Assamese) in learning process; they also have workable knowledge of English.
Changes made in the courses or programmes during the past two years and contribution of faculty to those changes
The college is a constituent unit of the Dibrugarh University, Dibrugarh, Assam. Hence the college has not much role to play in such changes. In the recent past, the University syllabi were modified to make it more relevant and updated. Subject-matters like Journalism, Translation Proficiency, Applied Linguistics, Comparative Indian Literature, World Literature etc. were included in our major syllabus. The introduction of the CBCS system which is introduced from 2019-20 session has brought drastic change in our curriculum.
Learning resources of the departments-library,computers,laboratories and other resources
The department has its own small library. It has a good number of text and reference books. It has a computer with internet facility.Students and teachers normally consult the departmental library and the central library which is quite rich in old and new books . The college subscribes the journals likeIndian Literature the Journal ofSahitya Academy, AsomSahityaSabha Patrika published by Asom Sahitya Sabha, Gariyosi(ISSN), Satsori(ISSN), Prantik(ISSN), OitiryaBarta(ISSN), Katha Guwahati etc.
Modern teaching methods practiced and use of Youtube, PPT& ICT in teaching/learning
Lecture method is normally followed by the teachers. Sometimes LCD projectors and computers are also used for comprehensive teaching by all faculty members. There is a separate digital classroom for the department. Apart from this tutorial classes and home assignment, group discussions, seminars are also arranged by the department. Sometimes teachers taken remedial classes for the backward students.
Participation of teachers in academic and personal counseling of students
Teachers of the department are always available for personal guidance to the students. They are very helpful to the students and encourage them for future prospects. Faculty members guide the students depending on their interest of the subjects. Teachers regularly participate in special coaching classes for students belonging to SC, ST and minority communities. From the last year a new system was developed in the form of Teacher Exchange Program for sharing resources and expertise in the teaching – learning process. Under this program, we have exchanged teachers with the neighboring colleges. In addition, students with difficulties are encouraged to have personal discussion outside their class rooms. Due to this, the student teacher relationship in the department has always remained excellent. Students feel free to seek advice from any teacher, at anytime of the day in the department.
Details of faculty development and teachers who have been benefited during the past four years
The teachers of the department have improved their skill by participating in various refresher/orientation courses and seminars/workshops/ Conferences, short term course programme etc. Most of the teachers regularly act as examiners, Scrutinizer, Head Examiner and some of them are actively engaged in research works also.
