The Problem

The Problem is that an institute needs teaching and learning strategies to address students from varying backgrounds, different grasping levels, different learning styles, and different aptitudes, attitudes and skills. Moreover last year the class with 100 had 11 who scored above 75% in theory 15 others got 65% in theory but did thei practicals very well getting 80 to 90%. 54 students got marks ranging from 55 to 65 %. Rest 20 failed. The faculty members five in number handle five subjects for the next semester and for the reputation of the institute thee is need of good results. There is need to overview different teaching methods and match them for different categories of students. The management also wants a white paper on issues
