Quality Circle

With an idea to create a lively environment for interactions, intellectual discussions, continued learning, knowledge improvement of academics and the need for paradigm shift in attitude, Quality Circle was introduced in TCE the month of June 2014.
A group of enthusiastic faculty members were identified as Facilitators. Brainstorming sessions to identify issues were conducted across all departments by these facilitators which had decent response from the students. The problems identified were consolidated and prioritized by the teams.
Quality Circles were formed to address the problems related to Teaching and Learning process as key concerns.
The facilitators of the Quality Circles further brainstormed the granular level issues and initiated data collection. Fish-bone diagrams were drawn to identify the Cause and Effects related to the problems. Further problem analysis was done with Pareto diagram.
To enhance the performance of the existing Quality Circles and to increase more QCs that can address issues, training programmes were conducted periodically for faculty members with experts from the Quality Circle Forum of India, through lively training sessions.
Staff members who attended the training programme were asked to form groups of five members underwent brainstorming sessions, were asked to identify a problem, analyze it, find the root cause and bring a solution using QC tools. Some of the presentations gained much appreciation from the resource persons.
