A Guide to a brighter and successful future

Overview

Suresh Gyan Vihar, a NAAC accredited grade A University has created a 20 point vision, strategy, and plan for a digital transformation. These vision statements are broadly split across five areas –

  • Enable continuous learning
  • Modernize curriculum, content, and pedagogy
  • Establish Industry Relevance
  • Foster Innovation
  • Nurture Academic Partnerships

Enable Continuous Learning

Traverse the entire bloom’s taxonomy from remember and recall to apply, design, and synthesize. Take learning beyond the classroom and timetables for better learning outcomes.

Comprehensive Mentoring Program

The university wants its students to go through a comprehensive mentoring program across alumni, industry experts, and academic mentors.

The platform has a mentoring feature where every student gets an independent virtual space that any number of mentors can be added to. The interactions are recorded and are made available for monitoring, review, and reference for posterity. The mentors can guide the students on their portfolio, choice of learning interventions, aspirational career paths, etc.

Communities and Clubs

The university wanted to encourage and foster a vibrant student-led learning environment on campus. The intent was to create learning opportunities for students that go beyond the classroom.

The platform extends physical clubs with a robust club structure on the platform. The sustainability of any club or community at an academic institution hinges on frequent and relevant events, and a wide engaged audience. The platform helps with managing both. Every event can further be tagged to relevant job roles, enabling students to build an industry relevant portfolio.

Internships and Summer Placements

The university wanted its students to have a ramp up to the real world. Every student is expected to bolster their portfolio with an internship or a practicum.

The platform has more than 400 companies posting jobs and internships on the platform. But, not everyone gets through. For those who don’t, we also have a simulated internship program that allows them to experience the real world in a safe environment and build a sound foundation for their corporate careers.

Modernize Curriculum, Content, and Pedagogy

Invest in transforming content and teaching methods towards more student centric approaches, enabling better learning outcomes and enhanced real world relevance.

Outcomes Based Education

The university wanted to create a framework for Outcomes Based Education to ensure its students were getting the best possible education and the university was satisfying the regulatory and accreditation expectations

All learning interventions on the platform are tied to objectives and outcomes. All content and delivery strategies can thus be monitored for expected outcomes and tweaked if necessary. Formative evaluations are also designed for continuous evaluation and can be used for micro-observations on efficacy of delivery as well as students needs on learning interventions.

Dynamism in Curriculum

The university wanted to enable dynamic updates and upgrades to curriculum, syllabus, and content for ongoing real world relevance.

The platform’s modular structure for modeling content with resources, learning paths, projects, and quests enables reuse, easier maintenance, and rapid enhancements. Every content unit (resources, learning paths, projects, quests, questions, and assessments) are tagged to skills and job roles to ensure real world relevance. As the industry expectations change so can the curriculum, syllabus, and content.

Project Based Learning

The university wanted to introduce project based learning – prior experiments had demonstrated that students learnt to think independently and solved industry relevant problems when they were taught skills using PBL. But, scaling PBL to a large number of students was a challenge.

Project based learning poses challenges with scaling. The project structure allows for monitoring, adherence, and timely interventions from mentors. The platform’s multi-tiered help and mentoring framework empowers students and supports professors to ensure large number of completions while thwarting plagiarism. Professors can either create their own project skeletons or borrow from 300+ on the platform that are created by industry experts.

Establish Industry Relevance

Work collaboratively with the industry for making the campus to corporate transition seamless for the students.

Employability and Life Skills

The university wanted to focus on employability and life skills, proactively invest in making students industry ready by starting early on in their college tenure rather than do it at the end of it.

Multiple features on the platform are built with this purpose. A student’s journey starts with identifying target job roles and then building portfolios that prepare them for their aspirational career paths. All training interventions are then planned in line with these target career paths. Curricular as well as extra-curricular interventions can be tagged to jobs and job roles to help students build industry relevant portfolios.

Placements and Strategic Industry Partnerships

The university wanted to establish sustained strategic partnerships with prospective employers. The training and placement cell’s role was enhanced to enable companies to engage with the university and its students on a variety of use cases like program design, curriculum and syllabus definition, and content contribution apart from the traditional ones like internship and job placements.

A university’s placement cell can use the platform for industry gap analysis as well as structured outreach to all its existing industry partners and recruiters. They can also leverage the 400+ strong industry partner roster. The platform helps the academic leadership understand shortcomings of the existing programs, thereby informing curriculum updation and design.

Nurture Academic Partnerships

Create a platform for academic collaboration fostering teaching excellence, research, and innovation.

Study Abroad

The university wanted to create a thriving pool of foreign university tie-ups that allow its students to choose from a variety of programs for higher studies.

The platform has collaborations with US universities that allow students going through collaborated UG programs to get credit waivers towards the 30 credit PG requirement and a 30% break on the tuition fees for the PG Program, if accepted.

Consortium Model

The university wanted to help their professors choose from a variety of best-in-class content to optimize the learning experience in class.

The platform has more than 100 industry and academic subject matter experts creating learning paths, projects, and quests that can be incorporated by its member institutions into their curriculum. The platform also allows professors to monetize the content they have created.

Foster Innovation

Embed innovation and entrepreneurship into the fabric of the university. Foster innovative solutions and entrepreneurs who will play a role in changing the world for the better.

Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The university wanted to create a culture for innovation and entrepreneurship – foster creativity and enterprise but also instill the discipline and structure required for successful outcomes.

Ideas are a dime a dozen, execution is what makes them great! The project structure on allows for discipline in execution. Each student can start with an idea and multiple mentors can help her through the process of validation, build out, and eventually launching a company. The project structure allows for monitoring, adherence, and timely interventions from mentors.
