A great deal has been spoken and debated about the characteristics of effective teaching and learning at college or universities. Much more focus has been paid to attributes of a good teacher than to the leaner today. Though there are many conferences and seminars deliberating on this important issue which affected thousands of learners across the globe in terms of diversity, need and adequacy, yet it is still less. Many approaches like cooperative learning, self directed learning, student centric learning and teacher’s style have to be worked upon in depth to offer the advantage to the learner. It is undoubtedly a complicated matter, there is no indication of one best way to demand holistic understanding of the context and the learner’s needs and challenges.

Keywords: Assignment, Co-operative learning, Diversity of learners, Effective teaching, Inspiration, Self directed learning, Syllabus, Teaching and Learning, Teaching strategies, Teaching techniques.
