There are four special sessions being conducted for every Batch on RTI, Personal Financial Management, Conservation of Forests & Environment and one Symposium on Disciplinary Procedures. In addition to that, 2 quiz programs have been conducted from their subjects, to improve their attraction and curiosity over the curriculum.
There will be two Tea Breaks one in the forenoon session and another in afternoon session. In every batch, Cultural Programmes are organized for every batch to infuse self-confidence, self-esteem of the trainees and also it makes the trainees more participative in their approach and develops team spirit and to empower them with event management skills, coordinating skills and to inculcate leadership qualities among them.
Likewise, Sports meet is also organized for every batch separately for men and women officers. In the class rooms, regular home works are given by the faculty members and to develop participatory teaching, the trainees are given topics to take lectures on their own.
Instead of traditional ways of teaching, new methods of teaching, learning and evaluation may inspire the trainees desire for learning and once the students mind is set on fire, it will find its way to provide its own fuel. Thus, the ultimate goal of self-teaching and learning could be achieved. With this view in mind, we thought of conducting quiz competitions in their curricular subjects in every batch in 2 phases.
Quiz games promote active learning and provide motivational impetus. They also enhance meaningful knowledge retention by igniting interest and placing theoretical subjects in a real perspective. Thus, game styled quiz competitions based on can be an effective tool to increase interest and motivation and enhance learning is established beyond doubt.
The main objective of the Quiz Programs in CSTI are as follows.
