Quality is highly required in the present teaching and learning process besides quantity. Nobody is expected to get contentment without quality in our life or career. Innovation is given utmost importance in higher education in the present global world. National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) was established to fulfill all these aspects in higher educational institutions. It has stipulated certain procedures for assessing and preparing students as well as teachers to make them competent enough to face the challenges in the present day global scenario. The teachers need to update their knowledge and use new methods effectively in the classroom sessions to give a new shape to the students. We have to carry this responsibility until we get retirement. For many decades, we followed the traditional method of using textbooks for the purpose of instruction. However, the emergence and implementation of teaching effectiveness assessment techniques revealed that most of the students do not equip themselves with course content up to the expected level. The Majority of intellectuals focus on new methods for teaching and learning processes. Our teaching or learning methods should be intelligible. The objective of this chapter is to mention the importance of innovative teaching and learning methods and study the understanding of changes by teachers and also the need for refresher courses for teachers at regular intervals. A teacher may be a facilitator in the present teaching and learning scenario. The new methods must certainly be useful to both the students and the teachers to do research and also develop creativity.
