To facilitate students enrich their communication skills in the English language and inculcate in them a love for reading and interpreting literature.The teaching methodology followed in the Department focuses on the following aspects of teaching and learning. The pedagogical theory for the student-centred curriculum is based on Lev Vygotsky’s seminal principle that “meaning should constitute the central aspect of any unit of study.” Hence there will be a strong emphasis throughout the entire course to teach English as a means of communication rather than as an end in itself. However, attention will be given to language development, grammar and vocabulary and pronunciation by leveraging Task Based Learning to mesh classroom language learning with language use in real life situations outside the classroom. Classroom lectures, seminars, pair and group work based not only on the prescribed texts but, from time to time, also on supplementary authentic materials like advertisements, newspaper and magazine articles, audio and video files, movie clips. However, our general English courses and our many writing courses address more directly these core skills. The department believes students should understand the "meaning" of literature in terms of social, cultural, aesthetic, and intellectual movements that are also the provinces of the social sciences. In addition, we have several courses devoted to studying theories of literature. Several others discuss literature as a realm of experience that reflects aspects of the social and cultural contexts in which it is embedded. Student-centred formative assessment which assesses linguistic and communicative competencies is integrated into the curriculum in the form of Continuous Assessment tests, seminars and short paper presentations, in order to promote commitment to the learning objectives and thus enhance learner motivation.
