Innovative Teaching Learning Methods

Flipped Classroom

Flipped classroom is a teaching method where students first study theory by themselves as a pre-assigned homework and then learn in the classroom by working on exercises.

This blended learning model allows trainers to prioritize active learning during class time, by giving learners the training materials and presentations before the actual class. The trainer can simply share the content via a Learning Management System (LMS), email, or however training is delivered. 

The following subjects used the Flipped model learning method:-

  1. Object Oriented Programming using JAVA
  2. Machine Learning (Elective)
  3. Programming Paradigms
  4. Distributed Computing
  5. Bio Informatics
  6. Distributed Computing
  7. Cryptography and Network Security
  8. Micro Processors and MicroControllers
  9. Computer Organization & Architecture
  10. Object Oriented Programming
  11. Programming in C
  12. Data Science
  13. Data Base Management Systems

Think Pair Share (TPS)

Think-Pair-Share (TPS) is a classroom active learning strategy in which students work on activities, first individually, then in pairs and finally as the whole class. TPS allows students to express their reasoning, reflect on their understanding and obtain prompt feedback on their learning.

Think : Students think independently about the question that has been posed, forming ideas of their own.

Pair : Students are grouped in pairs to discuss their thoughts. This step allows students to articulate their ideas  and to consider  those of others.

Share :  Students pairs share their ideas with a larger group, such as the whole class or a group smaller than an entire class.

The following subject used TPS:-

  1. Graph Theory and Combinatorics


Seminar has the function of bringing together small groups for recurring meetings, focusing each time on some particular subject, in which everyone present is requested to participate. Seminar classes are meant to be interactive, with students participating in a dialogue rather than just listening to a professor and taking notes. Because of this, seminar classes are great for engaging with complex ideas.

The following subjects used Seminar:-

  1. Database Management Systems
  2. Graph Theory and Combinatorics
  3. Machine Learning (Elective)
  4. Distributed Computing

Jigsaw Method

Jigsaw is a cooperative learning method that makes students dependent on each other to achieve the team goals or to understand the concepts. It breaks classes into groups and breaks assignments into pieces that the group assembles to complete the (jigsaw) puzzle.

The following subject used Jigsaw:

  1. Graph Theory and Combinatorics

One-Minute Paper

The one-minute paper is a formative assessment strategy whereby students are asked to take one minute (or more) to answer two questions: what was the most important thing they learned in class today; and what still remains unclear to them.

The following subjects used One-Minute paper method:

  1. Programming Paradigms
  1. Graph Theory and Combinatorics
  2. Machine Learning (Elective)
  3. Distributed Computing


Moodle is a free and open-source Learning Management System (LMS), used for blended learning, distance education, flipped classroom and other e-learning projects. It is used to augment and move existing learning environments online. As an E-learning tool, Moodle developed a number of features now considered standard for learning management systems, such as a calendar and a gradebook. Moodle is used widely by all subjects to conduct online quizzes, also to organize and disseminate learning materials.
