Projects Oriented Approach

We learn to do something by doing it. There is no other way. -John Holt
What I hear, I forget.
What I see, I remember.
What I do, I understand.
- Kung Fu Tzu (Confucius)

Notwithstanding the fact that innumerable of students who pass out from various streams of courses from various universities & colleges, yet there are only a handful of those who are able to exhibit  the desired echelon of proficiency in their relevant field. The prime factor for the same is that in most of the institutions, the spotlight in only on teaching & clearing theory of subject and practicals, if any, are performed in a typecast manner ,with no appliance of mind by either faculty or students.
 
In order to ensure that our students proactively & competently face the industry challenges, In-house projects are assigned and implemented  by every student in each semester, for Real Time Application of the knowledge and progressive learning. Students are enlivened to be part of actual projects to instill experience and expertise to solve the problems after proper analysis and to effectively apply the theory learnt during, learning of that  particular subject.
 
Moreover the assigning of the Projects in done in such a manner that  it imbibes in the executors , the team spirit, cross cultural adaptability ,planning & coordination skills ; apart from Technical skills. No wonder, our students outshine in terms of their practical skills and this gives them an edge over their peers.

 


Goal Based Learning


A man without a goal is like a ship without a rudder :- Thomas Carlyle

At Quest, with our experience, we apprehend that in our country, majority of the students who study any particular subject, do not understand as to why the study of that particular subject is important or valid for the field of their choice. They are actually unaware of the skills they would acquire after studying any subject. As a consequence the students are not clear about how to evaluate or assess themselves and the learning just becomes a customary affair of cramming the text & that too just to clear the exams.

To usher a new era of Teaching-Learning as prevalent in most of the renowned institutions in the world, Quest Group of Institutions is perhaps the only institution in the region to have initiated Goal based Learning approach.

In this approach every teacher prepares learning objectives for students for each lesson, which will then be linked to their expected learning outcomes for every session. Every student gets the expected Learning Outcomes and skills to be acquired for each subject on start of semester Our experienced faculty makes sure that the Learning Outcomes are clearly spelled out and explicated in a simplified manner, so that the  student is able to acquire those skills. A direct correlation between learning objectives and actual outcomes will show the advancement in learner’s graph.The aim of this activity is to convert learning into much more effectual and prolific progression.

Continuous feedback is taken during each semester and a comprehensive feedback is structured at the end of each semester covering all the indispensable aspects like – content, punctuality, timeliness, and behavioral patterns for every faculty member.This system has guided in making the entire process of imparting  education  more meaningful, purposeful & transparent.
