BENGALURU: The Department of Collegiate Education has mandated teachers at government and aided degree college to conduct four hours of remedial classes per week. In a circular, the department has stated that not conducting classes will result in negative performance appraisal. During their recent visit to colleges, senior officials realised that many teachers are not conducting remedial classes. Hence they issued the circular specifying the work load for teachers of all categories.
As per the work load, each teacher has to take work 40 hours per week and they have to specify the work done by them in the college register. They have to conduct rremedial classes for four hours every week. “If they fail to mention what class they have taken, the date and duration, then it will have impact on their appraisal,” said a senior official.
“Remedial classes should be conducted in a structured and formal manner. Each teacher has to put the details of when and where they will conduct their classes one day in advance on the notice board,” added an official. This rule applies to all lecturers, professors, assistant professors and associate professors.
