ANNEXURE – III

Best Practice -1
1. Title: Blood Donation Camp

2. Objectives of the Practice


Blood donation is a great service to humanity. By donating blood to those in
need, we can save many precious lives. To create awareness and motivate
students for Blood Donation to save someone’s life. To develop a sense of social
responsibility and a feeling of brotherhood amongst our youngsters. To help
anyone in society, other than those from the college also, in case of any
requirement for blood. To end the concept of replacement donation by ensuring
continuous supply of blood through our college. To establishing a collaborations
with Shree Pandit Deen Dayal Civil Hospital Rajkot, in case of requirement of
blood.

3. The Context
Students of higher educations are the leaders of tomorrow. By arranging
programmes like blood donation camp, students develop leadership quality. In this
process they come across many people in the medical field and other voluntary
organisations. The associations with volunteers and voluntary organisations,
nurture a sense of voluntary services in the minds of young students. Moreover,
they get first hand experiences about life outside the campus.
Blood is the vital fluid which sustains life in our body. In a thickly
populated country like India, blood donation has special significances.
Daily, thousands of people are affected by serious injuries in various
accidents and most of the deaths are due to the loss of blood. Timely blood
transfusion saves majority of the victims. Blood transfusion is necessary for
people who are affected by kidney ailments, haemophilia, acute anaemia ,
and many other diseases.
In India, one out of every five people refuse to donate blood because they think it
is dangerous. Many people are still under the impression that donating blood may
result in weakness and other diseases. To break this myth, awareness programmes
need to be arranged for students and staff as well. The NCC unit and Rotaract Club
of the College take a lead role in conducting awareness programmes.

4. The Practice
Christ College Rajkot NCC Club has started blood donation Camp since 2005, it
was initially organized in banner of NCC Christ College. Now The Blood donation
camps on the campus are done by the NCC in association with the Rotaract Club of
the College.
We first contact the administrative staff at the Civil Hospital and then fill required
form for organizing this camp. Once the date finalized we make an announcement
to the college students informing them the date for the blood donation camp.
On the date finalised the doctors and other staff come to the College and perform
the formalities of collecting blood among students. They bring the medical
instruments necessary for collecting blood. Other facilities such as bedding,
refreshments etc. are provided by the college. An ambulance is kept ready to deal

Christ College, Rajkot – AQAR 2017-2018 Page 44


Christ College, Rajkot
[AQAR 2017-2018]

with emergency situations. Blood is collected from voluntary donors after checking
their B.P, haemoglobin and other medical history. On an average every year 160
donors donate blood. The collected blood is then donated to the District Blood
Bank to be used for patients free of cost.
On the Blood Donation camp day all the NCC cadets and Rotaract club members
manage the entire camp process starting from encouraging students from all the
classes, registering them, making all the requirements for blood donation like
preparing the beds, refreshments, etc.
Every year the camp is held in February with the collaboration to Pandit Deen
Dayal Upadhyay Civil Hospital, Rajkot. We choose civil hospital because it is
freely provide this blood to who is needy and hospitalized in Civil Hospital.
A certificate of appreciation, donation card, and refreshments are given to each
donor as a token of appreciation.

5. Evidence of Success
Young students, willingly come forward and donate blood. Every year on an
average 160 units of blood are collected from our campus. It is a good indication
of the success of the programme. In addition, our students and faculty members
donate blood at other centres where such camps are organised.
Every year we are able to donate 160 bottles of blood on an average to the Civil
Hospital.

6. Problems Encountered and Resources Required


Blood donation has many health benefits. Donating blood on regular basis leads to
good health as a result of renewal of blood cells. It also reduces the risk
of cancer and hemochromatosis. It helps in reducing the risk of damage to liver and
pancreas. Donating blood may help in improving cardiovascular health and
reducing obesity. In spite of all these personal benefits people are scared of blood
donation. More awareness programmes emphasising the health benefits of the
donors and the joy of saving precious lives of many who receive their blood are
necessary to persuade healthy young students and faculties to donate blood.
Any emergency during the blood donation camp is managed by the team of

Best Practice – 2
1. Title of the Practice:
Collecting and Analysing Feedback from Students and other stakeholders.

2. Objectives of the Practice


Scientifically taken feedback is helpful in assessing the relevance of the
curriculum, the teaching pedagogies and the strength and weakness of the faculty
members and management. The objective in collecting and analysing feedback
from various stakeholders also helps to take preventive measures and where
necessary to apply corrective measures to improve the existing system. The
feedback from the students encompasses the following broad areas:
Classroom teaching, Library facilities, Canteen facilities, Infrastructural
facilities, college administration and Campus cleanliness. While the
feedback from other stakeholders basically focus on curriculum and its
applicability.

3. The Context
Student’s feedback has become an important component of educational processes.
Effective feedback benefits the giver, the receiver and the organisation.
Feedback is the process in which part of the output of a system is returned
to its input in order to improve its output. Feedback is not a criticism, but a
supportive act intended to deal with under-performance in a constructive way
and to develop performance to a higher level. Feedback can be positive or
negative. Positive feedback enhances the confidence and performance of an
individual while negative feedback is an opportunity to introspect the
weakness. A good teacher must be a good communicator too. The
communication of highly learned faculty members may be sometimes
confusing and possibly impolite. The only way to make sure that things are
communicated without mistakes is to get feedback from the beneficiaries and
stakeholders. In an educational system the present, students, alumni and parents
are among the various stakeholders and beneficiaries. All educational processes
must be designed to have maximum benefits to the students and their satisfaction
must be of paramount interest. Keeping the students at the main focus of
educational process feedback is collected from each student with complete
anonymity.

4. The Practice
The College has an on-line mechanism for collecting the feedback from the
students and staff members.
A schedule is prepared and the students are informed accordingly. The class-in-
charge is responsible for guiding the students to the computer laboratory for the
on-line feedback process.

The feedback committee is responsible for the collection and analysis of the
feedback from the students and faculty members.
Feedback from the students is taken once in a year (usually at the end of each
academic year). Students are taken to the Computer Laboratory where there about
100 students can give their feedback online at a time. Questions related to the
teaching competency of the faculty members such as subject knowledge, language
skill, class control, interaction with students, use of various teaching pedagogies,
syllabus completion etc. are included in the online questionnaire. The grading is on
a 1-5 point scale. The number 5 denotes excellence and 0, very poor. Feedback on
the functioning of college office, library, canteen, administration, infrastructural
facilities, sports facilities, campus cleanliness etc. are also collected at the same
time. In addition to giving grades, students are encouraged to write comments on
the strength and weakness of the faculty members, infrastructural facilities, co-
curricular activities etc... The data collected are analysed by computer experts and
the summary in the form of bar diagrams are submitted to the Principal. Corrective
measures (mentoring, confident building measures, measures to improve the
subject knowledge etc.) are taken by the Principal wherever necessary. A copy of
the feedback summary is given to the concerned faculty for introspection and self-
analysis. Comments related to infrastructure facilities, canteen etc. are submitted to
the Director for further action.
Feedback on curriculum and its relevance is collected manually by the departments
from the alumni, academic peers and other stakeholders. The outcome of the
analysed feedback is reviewed at the department meeting and forwarded to the
IQAC of the college. The relevant and viable suggestions are then forwarded to the
concerned.

5. Evidence of Success
Every year on an average about 75% students give their feedback on classroom
teaching, extracurricular activities and other facilities. Students’ feedback are given
utmost importance and their suggestions and comments are taken care of. Remedial
measures are taken based on their grievances and suggestions. Initially, the
feedback of some of the less experienced junior faculty members was not very
encouraging. But after self-introspection based on student’s feedback and the
subsequent mentoring by the Principal, the feedback of these faculty members has
improved to a level of great satisfaction. To improve the teaching efficiency,
modern teaching methodologies such as power point presentation, live video
lectures, classroom demonstration, ICT enabled teaching etc. are adopted by
almost all faculties. A new canteen has been constructed based on the demands put
forward by the students in their feedback. The quality of canteen food and their
variety have been improved substantially based on their grievances. The library
timings are also adjusted to cater the needs of students who stay back after the
college hours. Another area where the feedback played a significant role is sports.
Coaching facilities are made available to students who are interested in football,

cricket and basketball. The college has decided to conduct sports day once in every
two years based on their demands.
The suggestion on curriculum development and design has been forwarded by the
concerned faculty members to the Board of studies of the affiliating University.
Suggestions given have been incorporated in the curriculum

6. Problems Encountered and Resources Required


Feedback given by the students is one of the important criteria adopted by the
management to assess the teaching potential of a faculty. Though many of the
students give their feedback unbiased, some of them are biased towards certain
faculty members. Eliminating such data from the collected bulk ones is impossible.
This reduces the reliability and authenticity of the conclusions arrived at. Another
area of concern is that some of the students give their feedback very casually
despite the best efforts of the faculty-in-charge. In spite of these minor drawbacks,
the students’ feedbacks are fair and reliable to a great degree.
Difficult to collect feedback on curriculum from the sufficient number of alumni
and other stakeholders. In most cases the feedback received from various
stakeholders does not contain suggestions for curriculum design and development.
