Why It Is Now Important to Learn Through Creation Rather Than Consuming Content
In the year 2018 it was estimated that 58% of engineering students didn’t get jobs during campus placements. The increase of jobs in recent times for new graduates is good news but on the other hand it is also seen that 58% of engineering students lacked job opportunities across the country and are yet to find employability. The enrolment figure in 2017-18 declined to 750,000 from 944,000 in 2013-14.
Importance of campus placement for students
According to people familiar with the developments, there has been an increase in the number of campus placements as the government had made internships mandatory to increase the so-called employability of students. Better access to quality education has been on rise followed by recruitment by Institutions. The major objective of campus placement is to identify the talented and qualified professionals before they complete their education. This will help recognizing the skills and development of students beforehand.
Connecting business and education
New laws provide the legal framework to facilitate vocational education and training which aims to equip learners with vocational education, skills and competences required for specific occupations. It gives the opportunity to students to learn through work experiences where they can apply academic and technical skills and develop their employability opportunities. Learners can attend a period of instruction and training within an industrial, commercial or service workplace as part of on-the-job training or education programme which will be certified at the end of the course.
Be Career Ready
Institutes have adopted new practices which have emerged to facilitate project based learning. It is a learning in which students learn through creation rather than just consumption of the content. It provides a chance for modified learning of content and enables students to develop the interpersonal, creative and thinking skills necessary for success in their college and endeavors.
Digital India can transform education without changing ground-level basics
In this competitive world of today, no employer wants to hire an employee that only known’s the bookish language and has no idea of what is going on in the society. Skill learning is another major factor driving he growth of online education market.
Mantra’s on how management education needs to change to stay relevant
In this ever changing world, educational institutions need to reflect and factor in changing on four broad themes. First, they need to reflect deeply on the pedagogy they use and make it lot more experiential. Second, put greater responsibility on the students on their own learning; and for this provide better learning analytics that help students better discover what they have learnt; and third, in order to deliver effectively on all these fronts, become very different kind of institutions. It is important to create a learning environment where you can have holistic education, both, inside, and outside the classroom, and where they learn how to learn from real world projects.
How to sustain your passion for HR
It’s never a good idea to draw generalisations. But in this case, I’ll make an exception. Of all the functions in the corporate world, the HR profession is the most susceptible to for emotional erosion. Therefore, the potential for burnout is also among the highest. Young talent enters the HR profession through a variety of channels, but the prospect of working to serve the people side of the business is almost always a substantial part of the initial attraction. I always cringe when I hear a young voice say, “I’m in HR because I like working with people.”
Learning on the go
Mobile devices with connectivity and the choice of new apps specific to education puts access to education in the hands of learners making learning on the go a reality. Mobile learning or m-learning is also known as learning on the go.
