Academic ApproachThe Academic Approach should be “work centric”Learner should begin with work (and not from a book !), derive knowledge from work and apply that knowledge to make the work more wholesome, useful and delightful.
Academic ApproachThe ultimate objective should be to empower the learner to engage in socially useful and productive work.It aims at leading the learner to his/her roles, rewarding career as well as development of the society.
Academic Approach ..Learners are given an overview of the course and its connection to life and work.Learners are then exposed to the specific tool(s) used in the course through the various real-life applications of the tool(s).Learners are then acquainted with the careers and the hierarchy of roles they can perform at workplaces after attaining increasing levels of mastery over the tool(s).
Academic Approach ..Learners are then engaged in appreciation of real-life case studies developed by the experts.Learners are then encouraged to proceed from appreciation to imitation of the experts.
Academic Approach ..After imitation experience, they are required to improve the expert’s outputs so that they proceed from mere imitation to emulation.Finally, they develop the integral skills involving optimal methods and best practices to produce useful outputs right from scratch, and thereby proceed from emulation to self- expression.
