thirst for knowledge increases with the acquisition of it” –Thomas Carlyle.
I have always alleged in the above adage, and realized early in my life
that industriousness and hard work are the only investments that never fail.
If I were to mention one quality in me which sets me apart, it is my
never-say-die spirit which has goaded me on and on.
During my first tenure of teaching experience
in HMU department, I initially spent a lot of time preparing the course
plan. I thought it required a greater concentration because when I was working
as a visiting faculty last semester, I came across assorted students; so this
time I thought in order to enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning experience
I had to do a detailed research on various approaches to present the information.
For the same I looked for activities which students would enjoy, and made it
certain that I had all the resources and relevant materials beforehand. But in
spite of this rigorous effort eventually somewhere down the line few things would
go off wrong. Few instances; when technology would fail; students would
complete activities quicker than intended or students would require much more
time and clarification than what was actually anticipated.
to bridge the gap prevalent in the final year BBIS students and making them fit
for the corporate sector, I involved them in few number of group projects from
where I got a feed back that they have come to appreciate the importance of
teamwork while also realizing their leadership qualities. Case studies and
class presentations have enhanced their confidence and improved their communication
and analytical skills to some extent. Vigorously making them participate in class
discussions and interaction with friends; have slightly helped to build up a
healthy learning environment within the class.
limiting the boundaries within the class, I also initiated the relay guest
lecture series for the student’s interpersonal skills development. In this
process five experts have already visited the premises and fifteen more are
queued up for the next semester. I highly believe that the blend of all these
would certainly facilitate a positive approach towards our intention to nourish
the students and make them competent
enough to stand out among the finest in the industry.
