Teaching Philosophy

Prof. Prasanthi’ s teaching belief is pointed towards realization of self-responsibility to create a climate that assists and active student learning. She has incorporated some elements of “Design based Assignments & Case study” into his classes such as pre-reading assignments, in which students read assigned sections of the textbook and/or other resources prior to coming to class. Intuitive  Group viva is  conducted  for better evaluation in class but instead is used as the foundation for in-class assignments that involve students working with projects which cover in the syllabi in every semester to improve proficient & intellectual Solving skills.
