Centre for Extension Education (CEE)

Chair for Sustainable Development (CSD)

1.5 Academic Programmes The university offers both short-term and long-term academic programmes leading to certificates, diplomas and degrees, covering conventional as well as innovative programmes. Most of these programmes have been developed after an initial survey of the demand for such studies. They are launched in order to fulfil the students’ need for:
improvement of skills,
acquisition of professional qualifications,
continuing education and professional development at work place,
diversification and updation of knowledge, and
1.6 Course Preparation Learning materials are specially prepared by teams of experts drawn from different institutions and universities all over the country as well as in-house faculty. These materials are scrutinised by content experts, supervised by the instructors/unit designers and edited by language experts before they are finally sent for printing. Similarly, audio and video cassettes are produced in consultation with course writers, in-house faculty and producers. The material thus prepared is previewed and reviewed by the faculty as well as outside media experts and edited or modified, wherever necessary, before they are finally despatched to the students, study centres and telecast through Gyan Darshan.
1.7 Credit System The university follows the “Credit System” for most of its programmes. Each credit is of 30 hours of study comprising all learning activities. A four-credit course, for instance, involves 120 study hours. The course weightage is expressed in terms of credits. This helps the learner to understand the academic effort one has to put in, in order to successfully complete a course. Completion of an academic programme (degree, diploma or certificate) requires successful clearing of assignments, term-end examinations of each course in a programme and practical components.
1.8 Support Services In order to provide individualised support to its learners, the university has a large number of study centres throughout the country. These are coordinated by 30 Regional Centres. At the study centres, the learners interact with the Academic Counsellors and their peer groups, refer to books in the library, watch/listen to video/audio cassettes and interact with the Coordinator on administrative and academic matters. The support services are also provided through work centres, programme centres and skill development centres.
1.9 Programme Delivery The methodology of instruction in this university is different from that of the conventional universities. The Open University System is more learner-oriented, and the learner is an active participant in the teaching-learning process. Most of the instruction is imparted through distance mode rather than face-to-face communication. The university follows a multi-media approach for instruction. It consists of : a) Self-instructional printed material b) Audio-visual material c) Counselling sessions/contact programmes d) Teleconferencing e) Practicals f) Practical handbooks g) Interactive radio counselling (IRC); Gyan Vani and Gyan Darshan

Assignments Assignments are an integral and compulsory component of the instructional system. There are only one tutor-marked assignments for each theory course. These assignments are to be submitted to the programme centre in accordance with the submission schedule provided separately in the programme guide. From June, 2011 Term-End Examination, the University had made the submission of assignments mandatory for issue of hall ticket.

Besides, two practical workshops of 24 days duration, i.e., 12 days each spreading over 2 years, with intensive face-to-face interaction to develop skills and competencies will also be organised at the Programme Centre or at any other suitable place. The student teachers will have to do practical work and various activities required for the development of teaching skills and competencies in the school under the guidance of the supervisor and principal/headmaster after taking due permission from the school concerned. Overall a student is expected to go through approximately 300 hours of contact time. Evaluation The system of evaluation, both for theory and practical work, is as follows: Theory: For theory courses, evaluation comprises three aspects: a) Self-evaluation exercises within each unit of study (non-credit). b) Continuous evaluation in the form of periodic compulsory assignments. This carries a weightage of 30% for each course. One assignment in each theory course is compulsory. c) The term-end examination has a weightage of 70% of the total for each course. Term-end examinations will be held in June/December every year. But for the candidates of academic year (Jan.-2013), the first term-end examination will be held in December 2013 only for first year courses. The students will be permitted to appear in the term-end examination for the courses of 2nd year only in December 2014. The students are specifically instructed to send Examination Forms as per instructions given on page 8. Practical : For Practical courses, evaluation comprises three aspects: a) Continuous evaluation of school-based activities and practice teaching. b) Evaluation of performance in practical workshops. c) Evaluation of practice teaching. The student will have to obtain at least D grade in each course in both continuous and terminal evaluation separately. However, the overall average should be at least C grade for the successful completion of a course.
If a student has missed any term-end examination of a course for any reason, he/she may appear in the subsequent term-end examination. This facility will be available until a student secures the minimum pass grade, but only upto a period of four years from the date of registration. The letter grade system is used for grading continuous and terminal examination components. These letter grades are: Letter grade A B C D E
Qualitative level Excellent Very Good Good Satisfactory Unsatisfactory
5 4 3 2 1
80% & above 60-79.9% 50-59.9% 40-49.9% Below 40%
