PROBLEM BASED LEARNING THROUGH CASE METHODS
Some of our courses are being taught using the PBL approach where students apply their knowledge to solve problems they may encounter in a professional context and in doing so, extend their experience beyond their text books. Elements of the work situation are brought into the classroom by the PBL approach. Students undertake a series of tasks that bring industry problems into the academic environment. Case studies cut across various organizations and issues and therefore they are of strategic importance in understanding various problems.
ROLE PLAYS / EXPERIENTIAL EXERCISES
The students are encouraged to learn concepts through role plays, short projects, experiential exercises and practical assignments. The students benefit from these practicals , as they are able to relate theory with practice.. Theater technique is constantly used to upgrade the communication and presentation skills of the students.
Most of our students undergo summer internship in the companies and industry of their own choice, to learn the practical functioning of business organization. The students are supposed to undergo research project and prepare thorough reports on the work done during internship. To support the students, Faculty mentors are allotted to each individual student for better learning and completion of project. This is the time when students get exposed to professional setup. VIDYans have succeeded consistently in strengthening a relationship which extends beyond the boundaries of internships and campus placements.
RESEARCH AND PRESENTATIONS
To make the learning experience self-motivated and participatory, professors play the role of facilitators by providing a foundation for discussion and leaving the ground open for students’ research through self-study and presentations. This method provides an opportunity to explore the intricacies of a subject area and ingrain the necessary aspects of time management and crisis control. This method also helps students to develop good writing, presentation and analytical skills. Many students have developed upon these opportunities to publish their own research papers and write articles in journals.

Integrated Learning comes in many varieties: connecting skills and knowledge from multiple sources and experiences; applying skills and practices in various settings; utilizing diverse and even contradictory points of view; and, understanding issues and positions contextually. Making connections within a major, between fields, between curriculum, co-curriculum, or between academic knowledge and practice. We at VIDYA ensure teaching and learning Beyond Books & Theories.
