Learner-centered education through appropriate methodologies facilitates effective learning as teaching-learning modalities of the higher education institution are considered to be relevant for the learner group. Although it is true that diversity of learners in respect of their background, abilities and other personal attributes will influence the pace and extent of learning, learner-centered education calls for appropriate methodologies that can be used by teachers to provide a variety of learning experiences, including individual and collaborative learning. In this paper, we have analysed various strategies followed like planning and organising the teaching- learning - evaluation schedules, support structures and systems available for teachers to develop skills like interactive learning, collaborative learning and independent learning among the students to make learning more student-centric, institutional strategy to nurture critical thinking, creativity and scientific temper among the students to transform them into life-long learners and innovators, the technologies and facilities available and used by the faculty for effective teaching. Opportunities given to the students and faculty to advance the level of knowledge and skills, academic, personal and psycho-social support and guidance services provided to students, details of innovative teaching approaches/methods adopted by the faculty during the last four years and the efforts made by the institution to encourage the faculty to adopt new and innovative approaches and the impact of such innovative practices on student learning are also discussed.
