A:

Course Identification and General Information a. Course title and code: Satellite Communications (CSC-404) b. Year and semester to which this report applies: Fall 2012

B:

Course Delivery a. %age of course completed: 100% b. Consequences of Non Coverage of Topics: Its a very lengthy course and difficult course with hundreds of numericals. Students are weak and they need more time to understand the topic.

Topics not Fully Covered (if any)


None

Significance of Lack of Coverage


Slow pace of understandi ng of student

Possible Remedial Action


Instructor should be strict and motivate student to elevate their understanding with the pace of teacher.

Force student to do more hard work

d. Numerical and Communicat ion Skills

Normally I will give weekly assignment in a class. This technique improves student coordination and improves their confidence level. Some sort of physical training but is applicable for real life student projects.

Yes

No difficulties

e. Psychomoto r Skills (if applicable)

Yes

I have used NUST software for this purpose.

Summarize any actions you recommend for improving teaching strategies as a result of evaluations in table above.
Our practice is to give assignments on individual basis. We judge them via Oral confirmatory quiz which is based on that assignment only. We Compel students to do self study. Use simulation to show how the circuits work.E.g. Electronic Work Bench

D:

Complete analysis of course and level of skills ensured Domain a. Technology b. Emerging Development paradigms c. Pertaining to industry d. Modelling and Design Comments Nope its theoretical course but I give examples from real world. Yes due to technical nature of the subject. Nope this course contains limited scope of industry.
Yes I have used NUST videos and Software to overcome this issue.

E.

Resources and Facilities Consequences of any difficulties experienced for student learning in the course.
Class delayed to start.

Difficulties in access to resources or facilities (if any)


a) Delay in commencement of class due to late room opening in morning classes.

F Administrative Issues 1 Organizational or administrative difficulties encountered (if any)

G Course Evaluation a List the most important criticisms and strengths from student feedback.
1. Comments: The instructor is neutral person and encourages us about the subject. 2. Comments: The instructor is neutral in course assignments and grading policy. 3. Comments: Instructor went slow down because of some students slow understanding of the subject.

a List the most important criticisms and strengths from Instructor Comments:
1.The instructor was not absent any lecture and answer all questions. 2. The instructor informed the students grading policy as in curriculum. 3. Technical recourses are mostly available well in time. 4. Surprise question and answer.

H Planning for Improvement Action taken to improve the course Provide a brief summary of any action taken to improve the course and the results achieved. (For example, professional development for faculty, modifications to the course, new equipment, new teaching techniques etc.)
True in our case.

Recommendations to Dean/HOD (Recommendations for action to improve the course that require decision at program, department or institutional level or that might affect other courses in the program.).
Reassigning 10% to the assignment and 40% to Final. Modify this course to be a core instead of a specialization course. Modify prerequisite course contents for this course.E.g. Basic Programming. Making them solve more real time problems. The program should be redesigned so that the students can have proper data structure background.
