Open-ended questions are posed after every lecture base on the day’s topic and ask students to come up with their best answer. Real-time reactions from the students are encouraged which help them to spot trends and consider new points of view. The evaluative technique like chain notes, brain writing, etc. are adopted to test the learner’s knowledge and stage of understanding. Sometime depending upon the topic students were asked to prepare concept mapping for their better comprehends on the issues they learned.
