TRAINING METHODOLOY AND PROCEDURES
Our training programs combine the latest developments in a specific field or sector with the opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences with professionals from all over the world. The trainings are interactive, and experience based. Our faculty members use a variety of formats: lectures, case stories/studies, group discussions, group works and analytical tools. Participants develop individual Action Plan, in which they integrate all training topics and relate them to the reality of the participants’ field situations. So, in nutshell the following are the features of our trainings:
- Participatory learning methodologies
- Substantive reflections of participants' own personal capacities
- Group deliberation and experiential activities
- Handouts and reading materials
1. Registration of Candidates : There are two distinct categories of potential participants or delegates:
- Participant Speakers – These delegates will not only attend the program to learn but also present their papers or articles based on their original research or review or analysis. The participant speakers will have to submit their ABSTRACTS within the Registration Form. This Abstract should be between minimum 300 words and maximum 1000 words. Abstract should relate to any related topic given in Program Plan. Your topic may differ from the topics given in Program Plan but should be within broader frame of major head. It is advisable to prepare the Abstract in MS Word prior to initiating the online Registration process.
- Participant Learners – These delegates will attend the program and learn by attending the sessions. They will not present any paper or article. Hence, they are not required to submit any Abstract.
Because there is NO specific Selection Committee, there will be direct admission to the program. Therefore, registration will be direct admission to the program. This hybrid innovative program will have 100 seats only. The admissions (registration) will be on “First Come First Served” basis. Therefore, early registrations are encouraged.
2. Pre-Training Paper Work : All participants will be given full space to prepare and present their individual papers or articles. At the time of application, each applicant is asked to write title, keywords, abstract of a research/review paper or article. All registered candidates desirous to present paper or article will be reminded to follow the prescribed Guideline for Authors.
3. Training Methodology & Pedagogy : This practical training must be learner-centric. The participants will be given full space and priority in pedagogy. On the given topics, the lecture will be delivered by using creative and participatory methods. The lecture should involve exercise or group work by participants. Pre-assessment existing knowledge and post-assessment of acquired knowledge can be arranged. At least 50% time of the sessions should be allotted to let the participants speak or perform for sharing their experiences or knowledge on the topic concerned.
4. Special Display or Exhibit by Participants : Within the broader canvass of course contents, the participants will be encouraged to display or exhibit their respective special interest, work, skill or achievement. They will be informed in advance for thinking, planning, arranging, transporting and managing for such display or exhibit.
5. Individual Paper Presentations : As explained above, each Participant Speaker will write individual research/review paper or article and present on specified day during the training program. His/her individual paper or article will be published in our journals with adequate editorial assistance.
6. Post-Training Individual Work and Periodic Assessment : As each participant will leave with certain take away, we would like to keep tracking the progress of individuals in their respective works post-training. Through relevant questions in periodic assessments we will measure the impact of our practical training on their respective work.
