Inter-disciplinary knowledge quests and multi-disciplinary lecture linkages are integral to the Liberal Education pedagogy across disciplines, along with accounting for training in essential 21st century skills like – creative writing, critical thinking, effective listening, cross-cultural understanding and empathetic communicating.
Complexity in teaching increases with every passing year from Level-100 [Foundation] to Level-300 [Core Specialisation]
Pedagogies will vary across Subject Majors and within courses/electives. Some Level-100 courses can be predominantly lectures led, while some Level-300 courses can only be case study discussions. For e.g. some Film and Performing Arts courses will be all performance/activity-led studio classes [acting, editing, etc.], while Environmental Science, Indology and History will have field work, site visits and report writing.
Courses will vary between 2-4 Credits. Each Credit = 15 Hours. All 4 credit courses will span across 18 weeks and will feature 14-15 teaching weeks, and one mid-semester break.
Evaluation will be based on continuous classroom assessment, mid-term assignments and a summative end-term examination.
Practical output is integral to all teaching, involving hands-on immersive activities leading to the creation of signature student works in knowledge creation for evaluation. At the end of three years, every student along with their transcripts, will graduate with a signature portfolio / thesis work in their respective field for showcase, publication, industry review, and employment.
