      Format for Presentation of Best Practice 

      II 

      1. Title of the Practice 

      Student-run Bi-monthly Newsletter (GIRRAJ GAZETTE) by English Club of the  College  

      2. Goal  

      To make students excel at creative writing, critical thinking and collaboration  through the process of running a student-run college newsletter.  

      3. The Context 

      Though students are involved in academic, curricular and extra-curricular  activities in the college all through the year, seldom they do it on their own. The  teachers and faculty members lead the sessions and students follow. There is a need of a  platform where students could express, create, collaborate among themselves and  maintain the whole thing on their own. This would provide them insight into their own  latent creative, communicative and coordination skills.  

      4. The Practice  

      The English club with interested student members from various courses was  constituted in the college at the beginning of the academic year by the department of  English. The members of the English club in the first committee meeting discussed  about the possibility of starting college newsletter in English which would be  completely created and maintained by students themselves. The English club formed a  core committee who would take care of writing, collecting articles, poems, motivating  students for the task, design and production of the magazine regularly. They also  formed a team of students who would assist the project in technical aspects. 

      5. Evidence of Success

      Three issues of Girraj Gazette were released in 2019-2020. The issues were  released in print and online modes and placed in all the departments and college  library. It was enthusiastically received by all students. The success is evident in the  increase of number of articles received and student participating with each issue. 

      6. Problems Encountered and Resources Required:

      Initially, it was difficult to gather students to form the core team for the job. But  once the team was formed and motivated enough, there were no hassles. To release the  magazine in print requires financial assistance from the college. Though the members of  English club have borne the finances up to now, the project may require financial  assistance to continue in future.
