Teaching Methodology

Our teaching methodology aims to equip students with the best knowledge and skills possible. We follow a variety of methodologies to bring out the best in our students and prepare them for their future roles.

Interactive Lectures: Interactivity and open discussion is the essence of a healthy learning environment.  Engaging students through various activities, classroom experiments, brainstorming sessions and debates is a common practice here in DME across all three Schools, which not only makes lectures fun and interactive, but also helps students get better understanding and new perspectives.

Timely and Continuous Assessment: Timely & continuous assessment provides the educators with a better understanding of what students are learning and engages students more intrinsically in the learning process. This is done through various assignments focusing on problem solving, skill enhancement, application of theories and principles, handling dynamic situations, research and comparative understanding of issues.

Coached Problem Solving: This is a class format wherein professors provide a structured, guided context for students, working collaboratively to solve problems.

Communication Skill Development: Strong interpersonal and writing skills are valued qualities that every employer look for!  To nurture and enhance these skills, regular writing exercises, group discussions, debates, group projects and event management activities are conducted, resulting in holistic growth of students.

Audio-Visual Aids: Many subjects demand much more than a traditional lecture. PowerPoint presentations, videos, animations, photographs and other such audio-visual aids are frequently used to make topics interesting and intelligible.

Interdisciplinary Approaches: No discipline works in isolation and learning something new every day broadens a student’s horizons. Following this approach, teaching here entails use and integration of methods and analytical frameworks from more than one academic disciplines to examine a theme, issue, question or topic.

Case Study: This method combines two elements: the case itself and the discussion of that case. Teaching cases only provide information, neither the analysis nor conclusions. The analytical work of explaining the relationships among events in the case, identifying options, evaluating choices and predicting the effects of actions is done by students during the classroom discussion. It involves engaging students in addressing real world problems.

Role Playing: This unconventional and effective method immerses the students in issues and debates around them. First hand research and getting in someone’s shoes help them understand such issues better.

Data Simulations: To improve their quantitative aptitude, students are encouraged to use and analyze quantitative data in their reports. Data simulation allows students to visualize probability distributions and understand the concept more thoroughly. Spreadsheets allows students to “get their hands dirty” by working with real-world data. Spreadsheets make abstract or complex models accessible by providing concrete examples and allowing “what if” analyses.

Concept Tests: Conceptual MCQs are conducted focusing on one key concept. When coupled with student interaction through peer instruction, concept tests prove to be a quick and efficient method of formative assessment of student’s understanding.

Projects & Practical Assignments: Practical skills are as important as theoretical knowledge. Thus, to train students and make them industry ready, a lot of emphasis is given on practical assignments like formal presentations, developing blogs or websites, bringing out newsletters, making documentaries or short films, moot courts, PSDA, field projects, and much more.

Campus-Based Learning: Campus environment itself can be a great teaching tool, when utilized smartly, and helps students unwind their hidden talents and creativity.

Research Approach: To inculcate a research bent and originality of work, students are motivated to participate in research based activities. Besides that, their work is checked for similarity in order to ensure that their work is completely original and of good quality.

Field Visits: Best campuses and classrooms cannot offer the learning experience which a field visit can give. To help students apply their classroom education in real world scenario, frequent field or industry visits are organized like press visit, All India Radio visit, photo walk & video walk, Supreme Court & High Court visit, parliament visit, jail visit, Mother Dairy visit, manufacturing unit visit, etc.
