It is a constant endeavour of the CIHM faculty team to make learning more student-centric and interesting. A regular interactive session is held in order to develop better methods of imparting knowledge and skills on various topics. Every session is analyzed for improvement so that the students get maximum benefit during their tenure at CIHM. Given here are some of the common methodologies adopted:
Classroom Interactions :
All classroom lectures are thoroughly planned beforehand to make the session interesting and informative. Students are encouraged to participate and interact with the faculty members. The teachers use aids such as multimedia presentations, videos, group tasks and discussions to help students conceptualize the topics.
The institute invites experts on various topics from the industry and other institutes who share their experiences with students and help them develop a wider perspective.
While some students may have failed to comprehend classroom lectures, some students may require special attention anyway. For this reason, we have separate time slots of tutorial sessions that are scheduled as per the students' request. In these sessions, the students get an opportunity to clarify all their doubts.
Academic- Industry Integration:
This is a unique endeavour of CIHM. The institute has the privilege to use the attached Cambay hotels to provide students an industry-centric learning through its Academic – Industry Integration Program
Students will be taken on occasional educational visits and trips. Each of these trips has clear-cut learning objectives that will be communicated to the students beforehand. The students after their return have to file a report based on their observations made during the trip.
The students are given a number of assignments that they have to complete within a stipulated period. Students should take these assignments as a very serious learning exercise and do it after thorough research in the library, on field (if required) and through internet only. Each assignment is marked and evaluated on the basis of the written report or presentation etc.
Skill Based Practical Inputs:
All the core areas have practical inputs that are given in their respective labs. The sessions may involve demonstrations, activities, practice sessions, role plays and mock situations. The main objective of these sessions is not only to transfer skills but also to get the students aware of the ground realities before they become supervisors and managers.
