Curriculum Development Cell

The curriculum development is a team process. The team makes a systematic decision on the learner’s characteristics, indented outcomes, content, methods and evaluation strategies. Each step in the curriculum development process builds on the previous step to provide systematic approach. The curriculum development process systematically organizes what will be taught, who will be taught, and how it will be taught. Always, there are new ways to put things together in s little different way, to be more systematic or to adjust and adopt new situations. We borrowed ideas, from various sources on the concepts for Curriculum Development, progress planning, evaluation and training. This is to build the best practices from theory and practice of curriculum development, program planning, evaluation and student development.

Curriculum Development Cell is functioning effectively in CIMAT under the guidance of Principal since from 2018.
