  1. Syllabus Review


    The syllabus review is necessary to develop an understanding and correlate the

    efforts with results and identify areas that need attention. A critical, objective

    and exhaustive review, when school is not in session, alone can provide an

    opportunity for teachers and departments to critically review designs, strategies,

    goals & objectives and overall learning opportunity it provided for the students.

    It also lays foundation for new designs and alternative strategies and routes to


    It is thus important that teachers and departments understand that this is

    their opportunity of critical appraisal, not of individuals but of the systems,

    structures, processes and practices. The teachers may be reassured that

    academic supervisors understand and appreciate that as in all situations,

    mistakes are inevitable, but they must always be recognized and addressed.

    This appraisal shall not be used for any personal rewards or consequences for

    or against any member of the faculty and shall be used exclusively for the

    school improvement program with a view to improve school effectiveness.
