Inadequate lab microscopes
• Suggested to share the labs

New Teaching issues !
1.
Teachers overwhelming interest for
research
• Less interest in class teaching
• Occasionally post graduate students
teach on behalf of senior teacher
2.
Senior teachers opt for less
challenging teaching
• Postgraduate teaching
3.
Course contents are not completed
Solution !
 Viable
solution
– If we can sort out the problem during
rather at the end of semester;
 In
collaboration with IT
– After a lecture its outline or “ppt” has to
be displayed at University web with
teachers name and date
 Accessible
to staff and students
Bottlenecks faced

Departments have to aggressively
persuaded for the completion of SAR’s
– Prepare it with out interest rather considering
is an additional job

Permanent Director for QEC
– University needs clear cut instruction from QAA
to appoint whole time Director for QEC based
on available qualifications
