WHAT MAKES VIT BHOPAL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER UNIVERSITIES OF INDIA
According to the UGC list issued in Feb2020, India has 935 universities and a number of university affiliated colleges and institutes. This creates confusion among the students to choose a college or university which can provide academic excellence and give them the best campus placement. Though most of universities promise to give 100% placements they hide their real conditions, and if they stick to their promise, soon the companies find candidates unfit for the post they are recruited for and are ultimately fired. One of the reasons behind this could be that most of the universities use traditional mode of teaching which is passive in nature; it imparts only knowledge but does not provide the expertise to incorporate this knowledge in the practical world.
Universities like VIT Bhopal, encompasses techniques that make teaching learning method more effective and proactive, for effectively providing the required practical expertise to students which will be long lasting in their memory and helpful in their jobs as well. Conducting industrial visits, seminars, case studies, conferences, guest talks are a part of every business school of any institute which is not very useful to make student ready for campus placement and jobs.
Collaborative and Active Learning through technology- CALTech, is the first and unique method used by VIT Bhopal that encourages students to be Active learners wherein they can troubleshoot, solve problems on their own, discuss, explain, debate or brainstorm over the results. Such interactions foster each and every student with confidence, faith and provide an encouraging environment to seek more knowledge. At VIT Bhopal Business school, in a typical 90 minutes class the faculty teaches for a maximum period of 30 minutes and for the remaining 60 minutes a topic based activity is carried out with active participation of all the students. Students actively participate which is not only the key to make them ready for corporate world but their pro activeness also inculcates leadership qualities in them which helps them succeed in their future careers. Summarizing, CALTech method of teaching learning seamlessly transforms every student from a passive learner to an active and subsequently a proactive learner.
