1. E-Learning Management System

SVKM’s Institute of Pharmacy, Dhule adopted Moodle as a Learning Management System (LMS). Moodle was designed to provide educators, administrators, and learners with an open, robust and secure platform to create and deliver learning material. Moodle also facilitates the import features for use with other specific systems, such as importing quizzes or entire courses.

2. Flipped Classroom Activity

Flipped learning is a pedagogical approach in which the conventional concept of classroom- based learning is inverted. Students are introduced to the learning material before class commences. The classroom time is then used to extend the understanding of the topic through various activities like discussion with teacher and peers, problem-solving activities in a workshop situation facilitated by teachers.

3. Think Pair Share

Think-Pair-Share aids students in developing a conceptual understanding of a topic, fostering the ability to filter information and draw conclusions, and nurture the ability to consider the additional point of view by fruitful discussion.

In Think-Pair-Share the teacher asks a question to the whole class, as he or she would do at the beginning or at some point of the lesson. Students get some solo time to think about a possible answer- or to write it down- then they turn to their classmate sitting next to them and get some pair-time to share and discuss what they have just found out. At the end of this activity, the teacher randomly chooses two or three pairs and asks them to briefly share their answers or responses.

Pairs will most of the time succeed where single students would have probably failed.

Being the simplest and most famous cooperative learning strategy, the faculty of SVKM’s Institute of

Pharmacy implemented Think Pair Share activity for the students.

4. Inquiry-based Learning

In this strategy, the class is divided into a group of 10 students. An individual topic/question/objective is assigned to each group. Each individual group is then asked to explore the topic by utilizing various online and offline resources such as the internet, reference books, official books from the library, official guidelines, etc. and give the best possible solution for the inquired topic. Finally, the students prepare a short presentation (4-5 slides) and presented in front of the class.

5. Other Initiatives

a. Seed Grant for faculty members

Seed money grant will be available to the faculty to expand the research activities in new avenues and emerging segments for establishing suitability of an idea for research.
