Abstract

The University by its very nature is supposed to stimulate the process of learning and teaching with the consensus of students, faculty, administration, top management and stakeholders etc. Changes in higher education traditionally take place at a slow pace as compared to the other sectors. Infusing responsiveness, agility, efficiency, flexibility, proactiveness attitude etc. are the preferred teaching and learning strategies frequently employed by the college. Agility in education looks more effective at a grass root level as class room bears a testimony to the fact (faculty-student). Student Quality Circle (SQC) is a humble beginning to bring about positive changes in teaching and learning process by employing Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) frequently. The bottom-up, selfdetermining philosophy has been put into action it simply means “SQCs are of self-managed groups led by students with support and resources especially provided by faculty and administration”. Contemporary method of teaching has been shifting from the time- honored teacher centered learning to student centered learning where student is reckoned as a channel master and all academic strategies and decision making revolves around student satisfaction .The concept of SQC assumes that those who are involved in work are best qualified to identify the weaknesses, shortcomings and flaws etc. and they can make appropriate suggestions or strategies to improve learning methods and propel the effective teaching process to their respective faculties.
