FOUR IMPORTANT MODES OF LEARNING @IEC
At IEC we appreciate that the end goal of every educational institute is to groom students to handle Industry problems which increases their employability. At IEC we have created a proper mix of the four important modes of learning in the curricula.
Classroom Learning—Teacher is an integral part of the education system. He or She knows what to deliver and how to do it best. So the first mode is learning through an expert.
Technologies to aid learning—To make the lecture more comprehensible and aid understanding, we have all the required technologies at place. This understanding is further increased through practicals. Doing something on your own improves your skills and understanding of the concepts. Hands on practice is what we believe in.
Bringing out their leadership skills—The next mode is to make the student play the lead role and to open up. This is done through seminars, conferences, GDs, Technical quizzes, what’s the good word and a lot more activities. These exercises help in improving their soft skills including confidence level which is very important for having a successful career.
The last or final mode is to nurture students’ innovative and creative capabilities- Industry related/ supported/ sponsored Projects where students work and are made responsible for the entire set of activities resulting in the acceptable solution/ model/ process under the guidance from teachers. This is the time when they apply their theoretical knowledge to real life scenarios. This exercise gives them an opportunity to test their own learning and makes them industry ready.
