exactly that’s why i am proposing this website/blog stuff, which will break all barriers of stupid management.
we should have a web site for collaborating ideas from teachers, computer enthusiastic, ex-students, toppers etc,
we can have discussions just like this one going. this will provide all information for students, so they can extract knowledge from that,
See how it can solve the 9 out of 13 problems of can we change this,
1. How stuff works:
If teachers collaborate their ideas and create article with help of sites like Wikipedia, howstuffworks + their own knowledge students will understand things quickly, if they see these things before lectures they will understand lectures better. This will solve attendance problem too.
2. Relate bookish technology with real time technology
If above thing is implemented correctly this will became very easy for students.
3. Twicks to learn a language and software faster
In this section Ex-students like rajesh bhide, madhur or any good programmer can share twicks n someone like u( i.e. Joshi sir) can approve it (to see lucidity of content) infact sir can also contribute directly.
As sometimes in noise of class teachers also forget to tell some imp. Points as many other students keep on asking basic doubt as (explained by dattatray sir ), in this situation the advanced knowledge can be put on the site.
4. Discussion on syllabus
For this sir n ex students working in industry contribute telling importance of the subjects they have learnt n their importance in their work now, does n don’t etc.
5. Reducing Burdon from ‘team of doers’
Upload the work online before sem start, any enthu. Having time can start working on it based on things on the site as per 1st n 2nd measure. Since the syllabus will be discussed previously he will have knowledge of things and so he can work according to a stratergy which will save his lots of time.
6. prelim test : make it optional
Why to make optional if step 5 followed successfully all studious students will score good marks.
7. Information about various meets and contests
Anybody can post link abt it on the site.
8. Open source
This site itself is a best example of open source!!!
9. Making annual event more effective
As far as COG is concerned, they will get idea n material from site n the seniors contributing to the site. Using these idea they can build presentations, projects, programs(s/w) etc.
From the 13 points I mentioned 9 can be solved by the site n contributors to it. Only problem is will u support it??? Coz teachers must “MUST” promote it in class, they should make the student to go online. Just like Gadekar sir did abt assignment of IP for SE.
This will be an indirect help to now only students of FAMT but also to all mumbai university college. posting of reply facility will be provided for FAMT students only!!! so no problem of conjunction.
It will save patience of staff members too. as teacher will not need to repeat same thing, like how to have format of synopsis, “go on site n check it out, a demo document is provided”
Experience will be shared as new comer teacher will also get help from the site. So next time a teacher appointed from shivaji university will now cry as “in my syllabus I never studied this subject”.
He can refer the discussion on syllabus for his citation.
about the 4 remaining issues in can we change this 3 issues like, better infrastructure, strong students association n english speaking comes under management.
and improving exams structure comes under university.
if we want to change it then only way of doing that is creation of petition.and submitting it to HOD and principle. unless n until u demand for it, no one is going to give away it for free.
i have solution for 12th too, ask the ITSA to have seminars on tech world in GGC.
on name of “creating awareness about IT”.
explain them Fundamental of IT in 1-2 sessions (FIT subject in our syllabus)
give them URL of our site, let them see sections as
how stuff works, syllabus n all as guest.
n when they will get into FAMT make them permanent menbers !!!
by doing this everyone gets benefited,
the computer enthusiast will get knowledge n source of citation early, you dont have to spend your more patience, stupid boys will get their fate, based on just what u all wl teach in lectures.
n with this all now a student will be able to become a geek and a topper simultaneously!!! so wl get a perfect engineer who will have capacity to convert knowledge into intelligence.
i know it will be a hectic and long term process, but if we start working on it from now we can complete it and have trial on next year students!
