Experiential Learning is Given Prime Importance at Glocalby Amit Gupta Education Blogger
“Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.” ― John Dewey. We, at Glocal University, are a firm believer of the aforementioned actuality. Glocal, being one among the most reputed names in the world of academia today is known for building the future of the young minds in multidimensional and exceptional ways, and it’s allowing to the robust foundation of experiential learning that we provide to our students. We have always kept the holistic development of our valued students on the top of our priorities, and thus we not just aim to cater them with quality education but also shape the process of education impartation into interesting ventures and expeditions that they would love to connect to, grow with, and explore to the fullest.
Carving the ambitious minds into industry-ready professionals
Be it business, medicines, engineering, architecture, or any other domain, organizations are hunting for talents who are industry-ready. This is why we, at Glocal, do not merely focus on imparting knowledge to students but rather groom and prepare them for a larger competitive world, enabling their transformation into real-world professionals. With our years of experience in the education world and our strong academic-industry interface, we are aware of the complexities and competitions imposed by the real corporate world in today’s time. We have thus induced the art of experiential learning in our curriculum to provide the students with adequate industry exposure by means of industry visits, educational trips, onsite projects, and more. We also have an industry internship as a significant part of our program curriculum where students are provided with pre-internship training in order to help them merge into the professional realm in a much smoother way. Our efforts are aimed at instilling our students with industry skills and practices before they hit the work life.
The impact of the experiential learning pedagogy on learners
Experiential learning is one of the most priceless pedagogies that significantly contributes to increasing student engagement in the learning process, thereby boosting collaboration and scaffolding among the students. It is, in fact, considered as the future of learning and helps students move beyond the theory to the realm of ‘learning by doing.' It helps in bridging the gaps between practice and theory, and also helps learners retain knowledge for a much longer span.
Activity-based curriculum to promote pragmatic knowledge
There are a number of teaching techniques, but very few are known for influencing on the learner’s mind. Experiential learning involves a wide-range of first-hand experiences and has proven to create a dramatic impact on learner’s psyche. We, at Glocal University, therefore, utilize highly specialized strategies to form an interactive pedagogy, and practical learning is definitely a crucial part of it.
Also, our innovative and blended curriculum creates the base for the highly pragmatic practice of education impartation at Glocal. Students are provided with an equivalent percentage of practical experiences along with theoretical teachings, which helps them build the confidence of executing the learned information, insights, and skills in the best possible way.
