Study projects and surveys are undertaken. On the last day, student teachers present their work in the form of an exhibition. There is a special stress on community living (learning to live together), community service and community education. All the student teachers and faculty members, except the Ph.D. scholars are required to attend the OAS Camp. During the Camp the student teachers also learn how to use environmental resources for classroom teaching purposes. The major aim of the OAS camp is to develop organisational skills in them.
The students are divided into groups according to the special subjects offered by them with the faculty members concerned as the advisers. Each group has its own President and Secretary and organises academic, social and cultural programmes in consultation with its adviser. The programmes include hikes, picnics and visits to places of importance, organising lectures, paper-reading, debates, etc. This gives the members of the group an opportunity to come in professionally and academically close contact with one another and with the advisors who help them.
Teachers under training are divided into small groups for tutorial work. In these groups, they complete their work related to theory and practice, present papers and receive individual help and guidance in their studies and personal problems.

It incorporates the use of various teaching methods, strategies, techniques etc. by the student- teachers during teaching practice and allows shifting the role of teacher to facilitator and makes learning student centered.
