Teaching Philosophy

Prof. Abadhan Sabyasachi’s teaching philosophy focuses on Outcome-Oriented Learning, i.e., to improve the overall performance and academic excellence of students, the topic-wise learning assessments after completion of each topic are to be carried out throughout the academic term (semester) instead of only customary periodicity, providing them with the topic-wise lesson plan, hands-on class materials, and topic-specific case studies, and relevant sector benchmarks to assess the current developments. Privileging the students to ask questions any time they feel to dispel doubts, conducting periodic group discussions, seminars, and project demonstrations by providing them with the needful mentorship and guidance to improve their understanding and capabilities in effectively dealing with the subject matters. He participated in the Pedagogy Workshop on Effective Teaching and Learning Strategies at NIT Silchar and was the faculty-in-charge of Google Associate Cloud Engineer Specialisation at SRM University, AP. Moreover, with the help of a Virtual Learning Environment by using Learning Management Systems (LMS) such as Google Classroom, Moodle, Canvas, and Blackboard for real-time delivery of class materials, assignments, quizzes, and getting instant. Students would be encouraged to take up the online courses and specializations offered by the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) platforms such as the NPTEL, MIT OCW, Coursera, and edX, which would help update their knowledge and remain familiar with emerging technologies and applications.
