The first inter-departmental seminar for 2021 was held on 27th March 2021 in the Seminar Room of the college. It was conducted by the department of Philosophy, and organized by the Research Committee of DGC. Dr. T. Jamedi Longkumer, Asstt. Professor, dept of Philosophy presented a paper on the topic “CHOICE BASED CREDIT SYSTEM: Rationale, Structure and Implication.” The topic was chosen keeping in mind that the new CBCS is to be introduced from the coming semester, and it was deemed necessary that all teachers should be sensitized about the major changes that are about to take place.
The presenter pointed out that the highlight of the CBCS is that a lot of freedom is given to the students in the choice of subjects. A student can choose a paper from any department or even a particular paper from a different college from the courses that are on offer. He also gave a detailed explanation of the structure of the CBCS – about the total credits vis-a-vis the structure, and the nature of the Generic Electives and Skill Enhancement Courses. He also stated that with the additional courses, the teaching hours and daily class routine are bound to get extended. Further, if the college decides to introduce both general and honours courses, it would be very difficult to accommodate the general courses due to lack of infrastructure at the moment.
The seminar was chaired by N. Temjenmeren, Asstt. Prof, dept of Philosophy and the Vote of Thanks was proposed by Dr. Yelhi Vero, Convenor of the Research Committee. The seminar was attended by faculty members and considering the importance of the topic, the presentation was followed by a lively discussion.
