Geography

History of the Department

 

 

 

The Department of Geography is one of the oldest Departments of Dr.Meghnad Saha College, which was started functioning General Course from August 2000. But in the year 2003, the Honours course was introduced which completion the demand of the local as well as outsider students. The Department have two laboratories i.e. RS & GIS (Computer Lab) and geographical laboratory (Cartographic Lab) with available survey and mapping instruments. It has a comprehensive curriculum on topics related to software with an emphasis on practical learning which is affiliated to the University of Gour Banga. The Department also has a legacy of holding invited special lectures, conducting workshops and other academic-related activities regularly. Presently, the Department is offering minor soil test laboratory. The department have two smart classrooms where regular basis audio-visual classes are taken by the departmental faculties. Every year the practical experience of subject through Field visit as well as excursion is done by the department. The Department is making significant contributions to the pedagogic improvement in the educational scenario of the district as well as the region.

          2. The Department of Geography regularly organizes Internal Assessment for the students. This kind of evaluation procedure helps to students to have a deeper knowledge about the subject. Besides this, the internal assessment procedure divides the syllabus in smaller parts and assesses the individual student’s development in the selected part of the syllabus. The continuous process of evaluation also prepares the student for the final examination.

 

          1. Group Discussion
          2. For the complete development of the students both in the curricular as well as co-curricular activities, the Department of Geography arranges regular group discussion among the students. The students of a particular batch are divided into number of groups. They are encouraged to present their individual opinions and to share it with their group mates. This kind of teaching methodology is a part of a participatory learning process. It also helps the slow learners in better understanding of the subject.

 

          1. Quiz
          2. Quiz is a very important teaching methodology to engage the student with the informative aspect of the subject.

Keeping in mind the popularity of quiz, the Department of Geography organizes quiz for each batch of students to make learning more enjoyable as well as engaging for them.
          1. Participatory Learning
          2. The Department of Geography has developed multiple methods of participatory learning for the students. The department organizes regular group discussion among the students to encourage them to develop their individual opinion about the curricular as well as co-curricular topics. Besides this, the Department arranges for field visits for the students, so that the students can develop the habit of participatory learning by using the real database. Departmental excursion is also organized by the department at regular intervals where the students participate to make various kinds of analysis, report etc. to represent a particular topic from their syllabus. It would help them to understand the subject in a more interactive way.

 

          1. Strategies for slow learners
          2. Participatory learning is very useful for the slow learners. They are incorporated into the various study groups in which the advanced learners engage with them and help them to understand the topic. Besides the regular internal assessment, remedial classes are also arranged by the Department of Geography for the slow learners where they are encouraged to clear their doubts about the curriculum.
