Pedagogical Resources 

Supporting students with lack of English language proficiency in classrooms, discussion sessions and office hours

CWC is also part of the larger community at Ashoka and its research projects reflect this responsibility towards it. This year, CWC has introduced two other valuable learning resources: “An Instructive Document for Teaching Assistants and Fellows,” and “Punctuation in Academic Writing.” The first one focuses on recognising students that may require extra help from teaching fellows and assistants, and talks about developing a listening ear to their needs. The resource on Punctuation addresses one of the most overlooked but prone to error aspect of academic writing, making punctuation a friend rather than obscure rules. Both these resources interact with the Ashoka communities’ needs, should they face difficulty in writing themselves, or want to reach out to others who need help. 

Students at Ashoka University typically have to read academic texts, participate in classroom discussions, make presentations and write various assignments including academic papers, response papers, book and film reviews, op-eds and participate in classes, discussion sessions and office hours throughout the semester. Some students lack English language proficiency and require support and assistance in their academic endeavours. This document lists some concrete measures that can be taken by a TA/TF in order to make a course more accessible and meaningful for students who need English language support.

Introductory Course on Academic Integrity & Ethics

CWC’s inaugural online course includes modules on academic integrity, credible sources, citations (including AI-powered texts), and summary/paraphrase.

A significant milestone for pedagogic research and training at CWC, has been the launch of its online teaching resource, the “Introductory Course on Academic Integrity & Ethics’”. This resource was developed and introduced by automating hours of workshops on plagiarism and citation, into an accessible, widely available, and an easy to navigate module. It is worth noting that this course has a limited precedence in South Asia. The module engages students through audiovisual to understand the importance of thinking critically and ethically, be mindful of the sources they use and recognise the importance of citations. This module through its various exercises demystifies originality and helps them to learn through ethical and responsible dialogue and collaboration. The resource also recognises the prevalence of AI in learning at various levels and delves into the uses and misuses of AI-based language models and their incorporation in academic writing and research. By introducing technological solutions, CWC has been prescient in recognising the digital turn as a site of transformation in higher education across the Global South. The scalability and accessibility of learning resources, and guidance vis-a-vis research and citation, was at the forefront of this endeavour.
