Analysis of Improved Pedagogy Applied for Teaching courses related to Computer Programming for First Year Engineering Programs AbstractBackground : Transformative change in higher education requires evolvement andexperimentations with pedagogy. We focused on improvement in performance of students inexamination after modifying pedagogy. The pedagogy emphasized on hands on practice incomputer laboratory tailored with 15 minutes short theory sessions. Such Three laboratorysessions in a week were conducted unlike two separate one hour theory sessions conduction inclassroom and two hours practical sessions in laboratory twice in a week.Design/Method : We have considered two batches in consecutive academic years and theirmarks scored in examination of respective trimesters for courses related to ComputerProgramming, which was offered during first year of their studies. During academic year 2013-14 proposed pedagogy was followed to teach these courses, where as in 2012-13, theconventional pedagogy was followed.Results : It has been observed that 27 out of 30, examination performances in academic year2013-14 were higher than performances in academic year 2012-13 i.e. 90% performances werehigher in 2013-14 when proposed pedagogy was followed. The average improvement inperformance was 14.24 which was ranging from -5.7 to 43.45.Conclusions : The proposed pedagogy followed in 2013-14 resulted in improvement in overallperformance. The analysis revealed that student understood the course content in better way byfollowing modified pedagogy as improvement in their performances in examination has beenobserved.
