Inception: General Stream in the year 2004-05
Soft skills: Student enrichment programme, team work, problem solving method all are performed by the departmental student
Language and communication skills: Centrally spoken English class is arranged for the B. Sc. General student
Life skills (Yoga, physical fitness, health and hygiene): during practical class students measure acid solution using hand gloves, dropper and wearing apron and eye glasses to avoid. After completion of practical class, all students were washing hands with soap or hand washer to maintain hygiene.
ICT/computing skills: e-resources are shared and e platform i.e. whatsapp and google meet class taken by the departmental teachers in the class lectures. During student seminar, ppt presentation was done by the students.
Two best practices successfully implemented by the Department
i) Measure acid solution using hand gloves, dropper
ii) Wearing apron and eye protective glasses during practical classes
iii) Washing hand with soap or hand washer after completion of practical class
iv) Before leaving the laboratory room always check the burners off or not, light fan switch off or not
Facilities in the department:
Departmental students can issue syllabus oriented text books and other reference books from the Central library. Departmental Computer with Internet facilities can be accessible by both teacher and student whenever required. Class rooms with ICT facility are available when required. Students can access the laboratory for practical class. Instruments like heating mantle, hot air oven, magnetic stirrer, water bath, pH meter, Colorimeter, refrigerator, digital balance, chemical balance are regularly used by the students for their practical classes. Bunsen burner was used for organic and inorganic practical classes. Sufficient amounts of burette, pipit, other glass apparatus and required chemicals are available in the department. Qualified faculties are always available, maintain friendly atmosphere towards the student so that they can easily ask their problem..
Academic activities: Departmental faculties have effectively performed their duties and maintained good relationships with students, authority and staff of the college. They enhance the learning environment through instruction and service that support the institutional mission. Duties like classroom teaching, academic advising and counseling of students, participation in departmental committee work, continuous development of the curriculum through assessment and service such as assisting in recruitment of students and initiatives designed to help students succeed academically are effectively performed by the departmental faculties. They also performed different university's assignment like Question moderation, HE work, Examiner which was allotted for them by the university.
No. of placement of outgoing students:
No. of students progressing to higher education: 3
Experiential learning: All practical classes based on laboratory experiments. After gaining theoretical knowledge, Students solve different problems by practical experiment. Chemistry department organised a one day industrial visit for all departmental students. Our academic curriculum focuses on engaging students in practical experiences to observe the implementation of what they are taught in Chemistry. We believe that industry visit will give our students relevant knowledge during this visit.
Participative learning: Department organized a special lecture on the topic related to syllabus and students' seminar on popular topics for the students as a part of participative learning. Students themselves are selected topics. They think that discussion of these popular topics gives us necessary knowledge which everyone should know. Interdisciplinary lectures were also organized by the department with collaboration with department of Botany and department of Zoology on the topic which is included in our syllabus i.e. SEC2: Analytical clinical biochemistry.
Problem solving methodologies: The department has been intended to assess the ability of the students from the beginning of classes. During every class after discussing of topic, we provide sample problem, sample questions to the students. We have conducted internal examinations as a part of continues internal examination(CIE) on a regular basis. After every examination, we discuss the question answer of the examination among all students. Students’ progression is judged by giving problems and asking questions on the topic under discussion. Slow learners are assisted by repeating question answer solving, open book test related to the lecture. Advanced learners are encouraged to help them by group discussion. Conversely, advanced learners are encouraged to read reference books to enhance their knowledge and clarify their concept of learning.
Use of ICT tools: E-resources are shared and e platform i.e. whatsapp and google meet class taken by the departmental teachers in the class lectures. During student seminar, ppt presentation was done by the students.
Chemistry internship proposal regarding NEP
An internship is a golden opportunity to find out what a practical chemistry career actually entails. As part of their internship, each student will work on a real-world project and present their work at the end of their internship.
Our proposed plan: We have 12 students in Multidisciplinary course, Department of Chemistry, Vivekananda College for Women in the academic session 2023-24. We divided our students in 3 batches (each batch contains 4 students in each year). We guided these students individually on short project works. List of project works which we suggest for them given below
