Innovation in Pedagogy
- Experiential Learning: Provide students with hands-on experiences through fieldwork and internships (some times paid internships). This approach allows students to apply theoretical knowledge in real-world contexts, fostering deeper understanding and skill development. Example: Our B.Tech CSE students under a specific work integrated program work with industry in their 2nd, 3rd and 4th year as interns -parttime. They earn more than 60% of their annual fee through this mode.
- Problem-Based Learning (PBL): Present students with authentic, open-ended problems related to agriculture. We encourage them to work collaboratively with farmers/agritech companies to analyze the problems, propose solutions, and implement their ideas.
- Technology Integration: We incorporate technology tools and resources into our teaching methods. This can include using Artificial intelligence, drones, data analysis tools, or virtual reality experiences.
- Flipped Classroom: In order to help students make classes more productive, we apply Flipped class room techniques for some courses. Classroom time can then be dedicated to interactive discussions, problem-solving activities, and hands-on exercises. This approach promotes active learning and allows students to engage in deeper discussions.
- Inquiry-Based Learning: We Encourage students to explore their own questions and investigate real-world agricultural issues. Guide them through the process of designing experiments, collecting data, and drawing conclusions. This approach cultivates curiosity, research skills, and a deeper understanding of the subject matter.
- Community Service Learning: We Integrate community service projects into the curriculum. Connect students with local farmers, agricultural organizations, or community gardens where they can apply their knowledge to address community needs. Community service-learning fosters civic engagement, empathy, and practical skills development.
- Interdisciplinary Approaches: We Introduce interdisciplinary projects or courses that integrate knowledge and perspectives from multiple disciplines, such as biology, economics, environmental science, and engineering. This approach helps students develop a holistic understanding of agriculture and prepares them for complex, real-world challenges
