Types of Courses:


  • Credit defines the quantum of content/syllabus prescribed for the course. It may be a unit prescribed for a course and is determined by the number of hours of instruction required per week. Thus, in each course credits will be assigned on the basis of the number of hours required per week for lectures/tutorials/lab work/field work to complete the course in a single semester.
    • 1 credit = 1 hour of direct teaching per week
    • 1 credit = 2 hours of lab work/field work/project work per week

      Thus, 1 credit course requires 1 hour per week during a 15 week semester and accordingly a 3 credit or 4 credit courses requires 3 or 4 hours per week during a 15week semester.

Course Components (LTP):

      Normally, the tutorial sheets prepared by the teacher are distributed in advance to help learner prepare for interaction systematically.

      Practical/Practice session consists of hands on experience/ laboratory experiments/ Field Studies/Case studies that equip students to acquire the much required skill component
