Teaching Learning Methodology

Experiential Learning

Experiential learning at IITT includes different types of activities, with one common goal- to immerse students in "hands-on" experience outside the classroom. Following are the Experiential group about the current news. They are Learning activities adopted at IITT

 

Internship

In this the students are deputed to work in an organization related to their professional field and thus get trained in that organization. They usually work on a project for the entire duration.

 

Field Trips

Field Trips includes students going on a field visit to an organization / any site relating to the profession for which they are being groomed in order to get a feel of the real world's professional demands. It provides a valuable opportunity to discover the realities and practices of the profession the students are aiming for.

 

National and International Tours

National and international tours form an integral part of most of the courses offered here. These help to familiarize students with the latest in their respective domain and develop a better understanding of the world

 

Projects

Projects are a crucial part of any program at IITT. The Projects are done by a group of students and are intended to be intensive, active learning projects, requiring significant effort in planning and implementation as well as preparation of a substantial final written work product. The group students are made to choose a project from their domain and asked to conduct practical and real life studies on them. They provide hands on learning experience to the students by enabling them by making them aware how to convert the theoretical knowledge to the practical one They also help to boost 'learning by doing' teamwork.

 

Literature Search/Survey

To impart the students with core understanding about the subject, they are asked to search literature on a particular topic and write term papers on that. This imbibes in the students the basic orientation about research and lets them develop an insight on how the basic research is conducted which further helps them in their further studies.

 

Media Track

Media Track involves the students in keeping a regular track of the news floated in the media viz newspapers, TV, magazines, internet, etc and discuss in a also encouraged to paste the news clippings in their workbooks and write their comments on how the events might affect them as an individual, a professional and a society. This acts as a source of motivation for the students to voice their opinion regarding the happenings in the society and also lets the group to come on a common consensus and develop a new approach towards the issue.

 

Bulletin Boards

There are bulletin boards in every classroom where the students paste clippings from newspapers, periodicals, journals or their own creative work which can be of interest or value to others and give a few minutes presentation on the same. This is followed by a feedback from the rest of the class and a discussion on the point talked about. Now IITT has introduced the E-bulletin board on its website where the students can write their opinion about any topic.

 

Web Based Learning

 

A number of courses across IITT use web based learning materials to augment the more traditional forms of course delivery. This is a very flexible method to allow the students to select when such study takes place and to adjust the pace of learning. In addition, our students benefit from use of the web, CD ROM catalogues, desktop publishing and industry standard office software. Web pages are available for each of the specialities of a program for updation regarding current developments in the discipline. Both teachers and students update this page mentioning the source of information to become a professional leaning community.

 

Simulation & Lab Practical

 

This technique helps in linking the concepts with their applications in the professional field. This also helps to replicate a real world situation in a classroom setting through various modes like role plays and software based modeling. Such activities link the concepts learnt by the students to their application in the professional field. During this activity, the students imagine themselves in the decision making situation and act accordingly using all the available data and theoretical models.

 

Lectures & Tutorials

 

The lectures conducted for every course are there to infuse and develop in the students the analytical, conceptual, presentation, communication and application oriented skills. The class rooms and lecture halls are well equipped with modern teaching aids like multimedia.

 

Mentor & Mentee Relationship

 

 

Teaching Soft skills Hardway

Reinventing the curriculum to include soft skills

Employers feel that hard skills are only one part of the equation. They are looking to hire graduates with soft skills. These are people who can connect the dots and actually make things happen—who know how to influence the world around them, articulate their ideas clearly, and build strong relationships. IITT has created the curriculum to ensure that every graduate of the various programs have the five key competencies (see right) necessary to get the job done in the real world.
