The common pedagogy underpinning all learning programmes is derived from the time-tested principles of learning that are embodied in India’s ancient systems of learning.
These are the principles that made Nalanda, Takshashila, Vallabhi, Vikramshila, and so many others, the great systems of knowledge and learning that they were. This is the pedagogy that is also emphasized in The Upanishads.
The same ideas have also been espoused by great Indians, such as Rabindranath Tagore and Mahatma Gandhi.
The key ingredients of this pedagogy are:
- A seamless connection between knowledge and skills.
- Learning attuned to the needs and challenges of society.
- Project-based, hands-on and transdisciplinary learning.
- Mentored learning, as opposed to traditional classroom teaching.
- Programmes will make use of Internet-based technology and computers.
The votaries of The Internet College in the field have tested this pedagogy over the last 15 years with great success.
The outcome of this pedagogy will empower the seeker of knowledge to become an employer through her own entrepreneurship or will enable her to secure meaningful and fulfilling employment.
