I was invited as an expert to to have a session with final year engineering students .I decided to address them on the most crucial topic ” Result Oriented learning”. It is a very important education strategy which every educational institute should adopt while planning their core curriculum in order to choose appropriate pedagogy.
What is ROL?
Result oriented learning is also known as outcome based education. As per Wikipedia, Outcome based education is an “Educational theory that bases each part of an education system around goals(outcome). By the end of educational experience, each student should have achieved the goal. There is no single specified style of teaching or assessment in outcome based education, instead , classes, opportunities and assessments should all help students achieve the specified outcome. The role of faculty adapts into instructor, trainer, facilitator and mentor based on the outcome targeted.”
Growing competition and fast changing technology makes it imperative to align learning with elements like time, skill based and adaptive to achieve the desired result. Therefore result oriented learning becomes vital for meeting the growing and changing corporate requirements to have an access to right knowledge at the right time.
Result oriented learning encourages students to focus more on higher order thinking rather than just acquiring and understanding the concept to gain credit points. While designing the learning process or a plan one needs to define the desired outcome and objective.
This Workshop was designed especially for working Parents but is applicable for all.
Everyone know’s being a parent is not easy but no one told you how it is going to be like. Each parent has their own experience and learning. There have been lot of research which has gone into understanding why the child behave and react the way they do.
Every parent wants to give their best to their kids upbringing process but we need to understand just having good intention is not enough but understanding kids emotions is the key for good parenting.
In our society there is a common belief we like to call the “Big Lie”—the idea that our society and childhood upbringing do not influence who we are today at the deepest level. Most people don’t deny those things have an impact, but they think the effect is minimal and resist believing that their experiences and other people formed their beliefs. However, the reality is that by the time we reach adulthood, all of us have developed a pattern of how we automatically react to life’s challenges. We have also develop belief systems and attitudes that have been shaped by those around us. Each of us have learned different ways of reacting, which is why when faced with challenging situations some people may react by shutting down, others react with anger, other with anxiety, and others with excitement. What determines the different reactions is the different ways the individuals view the challenges, based on their conditioning—their learned response. So there are certain skills every parent should posses in order to have better relationship with their children.
Metamorphosis (Swati Mathur) in association with Burgeon Training Solutions conducted a workshop on “Changing the way India Learns“.
Learning in an ongoing process, once you stop learning you stop growing. But is that enough? What is important is that you should transform yourself from a passive learner to an active learner. We have seen this transformation from different learning theories which starts from Behaviourism theory move on to Cognitivism theory and then to Constructivism theory.
