Best Practices

Best Practices are a set of guidelines, ethics or ideas that represent the most efficient course of action. Vidyalankar is a respected and established education brand and has firm foundations in academic circles for the past five decades. Vidyalankar Best Practices are the educational strategies, activities and approaches that have been shown through experience, research and evaluation to be effective and efficient. Best practices have been set forth by Vidyalankar School of Information Technology to ensure that each student gets maximum benefit from the educational experience at the institute.
Vidyalankar Best Practices serve as a general outline for a variety of situations. These practices represent the broad range of effective actions teachers take, and requisite conditions that teachers establish, to facilitate learning. Recognizing that teaching is both an art and a science, Vidyalankar Best Practices have been formulated for areas such as lecture practices, student affairs, workforce development, technology, innovation and administration.
