It is worth mentioning that HEC established Quality Enhancement Cell in KMU in 2009-10. QEC was struggling to impart quality education through assessment and feedback of stakeholders. Teachers Evaluation was a routine survey conducted in Institutes at the end of semester to find out the students feedback about their teachers regarding their classroom teaching performance The survey suffices the requirements of implementation of quality assurance mechanisms devised by the HEC as one of the feedback mechanisms to improve the system of imparting education in a class room setting, pivoting around four basic pillars of teaching philosophy i.e. Planning and Management, Communication and Time Management Skills synergized with the strength of behavior of the teachers to maintain a conducive learning environment.
QEC KMU conducted this survey in June, 2011 in all institutes of KMU. Data compiled, analyzed and report. This report is provided to each teacher for their self improvement.
