1.

Dr. Milind Shah

Speech Processing

In the syllabus explaining the concept on "Ear physiology" is a challenge as conversion of air pressure into an electrical nerve signal is a highly complex process.

Many good videos are available which explain the process of "hearing" and working of "cochlea" with animation, thus helping students understand the concept.

Smita Chopde

Electronic circuits and Communication fundamentals

Involving students in teaching learning process on the topics focused in syllabus by asking the question and giving them on spot activity like writing question to the answer discussed at the end of the lecture on the topic discussed in the lecture . Asking the students to prepare the chart based on the various stages of the internal circuitry of the integrated circuits

Conducted a guest lecture by Prof Jatin Desai on use of MultiSim for desigining the circuit using the this software dated 17/07/2018

 

Case based topics will be given to students at end of the syllabus and will asked to discuss the about the various aspects by discussing the issues in the classroom session and submit the report based on the content of the case .

Live video is captured in classroom for the guest lecture on Introduction to Multisim .

Mr.Yogesh C

Discrete Time Signal Processing and

 Microcontrollers and  Applications  and  Projects

Involvement of students learning through seminar/video class/MCQ based quiz

Seminar groups were formed, topics were distributed and presented. Some video class were taken based on syllabus topics and octave simulators and for general animated videos (Gate Control Theory of Pain-Application)were played to understand the concept and to develop interest.

Savitha Upadhya

Speech Processing

Challenging accept is to explain the anatomy of human ear, auditory transduction and how exactly the hearing process takes place in the human ear.

To explain the Application of speech recognition in various fields

The topic of hearing, auditory transduction and other basic concepts related to hearing and applications of speech recognition are explained through videos and animations for better understanding.

Megha Kolhekar

Digital System Design and Lab (AY 2017-18)

1. Identifying weak students in the beginning of semester

A quiz was conducted after first six lectures. Statistics showed that around 20% students have not grasped the very basics. They were tutored on one to one basis.

Quiz statistics available in course file

 

 

 

2. Inductive teaching did not help in making students understand the topic

Handouts for the "Quine McClusckey" method were given to each student. A "Flipped Classroom" was conducted to solve problems. Majority of the students developed the confidence in the method. .

Snapshots availabl.

Feedback is available in course filee

 

 

 

3. Laboratory experiments are not enough to generate confidence of circuit making among students. They are streamlined to cover the syllabus, but do not give flexibility to students who want to do something more.

Course projects were allotted in groups of three to four students. Difficulty level of topics was kept according to the readiness and grasp of the students. 

 

 

 

Data Compression & Encryption

(AY 2018-19)

1. In network security, it is difficult for the students to give a picture of network vulnerabilities in practice.

Alumni student Mr. Vijayendra Kolhekar  presented a talk on this topic and gave a demonstration of packet sniffing using Wireshark. (August 1st, 2018)

Snapshot available.

Ashish Harsola

Analog Communication

1. Based on students feedback additional sessions were conducted for problem solving.

2. For revision the complete syllabus was divided into modules and group of students were asked to prepare a presentation and revise that topic in the class.
