Institutional Best Practice -1

Title of the Practice- Integrated Learning Environment

The objective of the best practice

Reaching out to as many first-generation students as possible is important because majority of the student population lives in rural areas and is economically underprivileged. Keeping these things in mind, our top priority is to offer low-cost alternatives for higher education, skill-based training, and assistance with job placement. Additionally, it aims to provide students with the technological know-how needed to handle contemporary teaching methods.


The traditional teaching method has been improved with the aid of digital platforms in this pandemic situation, and skill-based courses have been strengthened. The college is committed to serving the new generation of youths in the surrounding areas, which was built on the land of local villagers.

The Practice

Our college is situated in a rural, underdeveloped area where a sizable number of the population relies on agriculture, a sizable portion of the populace comes from economically disadvantaged and weaker areas of society, and thus a sizable portion of our students are first-generation college students. Taking these things into account, our main goal and challenge is to give our students the chance to pursue higher education at the lowest possible cost, to give them skill-based training, and to also upgrade them by teaching them soft skills and fundamental computer handling proficiency. To lower the dropout rate, which might happen for a number of reasons, mental encouragement and financial help are guaranteed.

To reach pupils even in isolated rural locations during the epidemic, the traditional teaching-learning method has been improved and combined with digital platforms. With the goal of providing quality education that will ultimately benefit the students and reducing dropouts that occur for a variety of economical and social reasons, social platforms are utilised to engage with the students.

Beginning with the separation of students according to their learning style and aptitude, mentor groups are formed. Mentors provide ongoing psychological counselling as well. With the aid of the scholarship, administrative work is completed to direct and facilitate online filing and submission of scholarship applications to various government and non-government agencies.

The college has successfully employed the Learning Management System to provide e-study materials, virtual classrooms, and online exams in addition to traditional and regular classroom teaching methods.

For information exchange and to communicate with the students, the official Facebook page and WhatsApp groups have been used successfully.

For live Google Meet lessons, the official YouTube channel are used as useful teaching resources.

Students from all departments can access the institutional repository, a digital library containing e-books using INFLIBNET with a login.

The college makes an effort to combine traditional teaching-learning techniques with digital learning. Additionally, skill-based training computer training, soft skill, value education, vale added professional courses and mushroom cultivation are provided outside of class hours to help students build their entrepreneurship abilities and prepare them for the workforce.

Evidence of Success

In this Pandemic situation, communication and goodwill of the institution have considerably contributed to widespread recognition through this integrated learning environment. For the goal of receiving regular information on their classes and other academic matters, students have been allowed to maintain direct contact with their specific lecturers. Despite obstacles brought on by the pandemic, all students were able to show up for exams without dropping out.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required

The increased digital learning was unavailable to all students who lived in far-off villages where internet facility is not available. A mechanism for monitoring each pupil must be carefully maintained.

Institutional Best Practice -2

Title of the Practice- Promotion of Human Values and Ethics

The objective of the best practice

Indas Mahavidyalaya, a leading institute with a noble vision and mission is disciplined and systematic in meeting the demands of its academic curriculum. It also fosters a healthy environment for the promotion of human values and ethics that ensure a genuine flourish of values amongst students.

The practice takes into account two main objectives of the institution:

1) To take care of a students’ well being and

2) To look into her/his holistic development as a human being

The aim is to instill in the student a sense of confidence and faith so that she/he may confront any obstacle or hardship in life, both social and domestic. Motivational counseling sessions assist students in dealing with emotional and mental health concerns and improving their sense of self. This has a significant impact on their thinking, education, career, and life choices.


College students' teenage years cause a variety of physical and mental changes in them. These changes make dealing with personal and social difficulties challenging for them. Spiritual drive, discussions of ethics and human values, and Vedanta all help to build a firm foundation in youth. Several pupils were caught in a position of acute mental distress and poverty during the COVID -19 epidemics in 2020.

The Practice

  1. Recognizing a student's emotional requirements
  2. Instilling in them a feeling of moral and ethical values.
  3. Arranging sessions and classes for the students so that they receive lessons and guidance in the above lines. It is also a platform where they can interact and seek knowledge according to their individual needs.

Since 2022, the department of English and Philosophy has been initiating and organizing course lectures and workshops. Several famous individuals (Professors and Scholars) delivered talks on values and ethics, which aid in the development of aware and awakened minds (students). The syllabus of subjects taught in the college like Philosophy , Political Science, English, Bengali, History  has  incorporated topics which allows the teachers to deliver talks on values, ethics, humanity and morality from their unique and individual perceptions.

The most unique aspect of this practice has been the MOU between Indas Mahavidyalaya and  Samsor  Ramkrishna Mission by which the reverend marks of the institute address sessions to share their learning’s of the Vedanta, their life experiences , their noble thoughts,  on life, values and ethics. This initiative by the college's principal has been a success, and students, teachers, and staff looks forward to it.

Evidence of Success

The periodical lectures have received an overwhelming response with a packed hall and positive feedback. The inspirational talks of the monks have been a huge success and students have eagerly participated in various programs held in Ramkrishna Mission, Samsor. Student in huge numbers have requested for such classes and programs in the forthcoming years.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required

Rural colleges are always challenged by issues of conveyance. In a variety of ways, a lack of sufficient transportation facilities creates unequal opportunities for pupils. Despite their best efforts, the poorly connected highways cannot transport the whole student population to college. All cannot make it to these various programs, either online or offline, due to lack of proper conveyance and a poor network system. A Psychological Counseling Cell with a consultant psychologist (at least on a monthly visit) is required.
