Abstract—The present paper briefly describes history of teaching and learning in educational institutions since ages. There have been several studies in various disciplines excluding technological subjects which have been given less importance. Due to continuous dynamic growth of various technologies in education including teaching and learning it has become important to find out the best practices in this area. The two premier technical institutes of India have been selected for this study. The spine of educational system is the faculty members who have been chosen to provide their perceptions in critical components such as standard of courses and its up gradation, training for updating knowledge, examination, evaluation and others. The statistical analysis reflects that it will take some more time for the premier institutes to make the teaching and learning practices IT savvy and learners focus. Thus it is aimed that the present work will set up an example of best practices in teaching and learning to other institutions of India.
