Course Pack

Course Pack

The purpose of our courseware is to improve the state of art in the planning, implementation and self-evaluation of the students. The pragmatic learning solutions are precisely aligned with current events. The courseware is supposed to be an introduction to the knowledge and main elements of the programme. The idea behind is that the students can enter the classroom with a common level of knowledge so that the concerned faculty can focus on high-level application of the programme.

Features of Courseware :

  • It has been drawn keeping the current day trends in the industry and consulting the Master of Business Administration curriculum from leading B- Schools world over.
  • Every Semester Curriculum review is done by seasoned Academicians & Senior Corporate Executives.
  • Application oriented multi disciplinary approach towards learning is followed.

Teaching & Learning Pedagogy At EIILM

Teaching at EIILM has been a matter of pre-renown attraction because of certain factors inbuilt in its system. Prior to the start of formal classes for Master of Business Administration, we get a review and orientation period for each of the courses. Reviews and Orientations are done in the manner as specified below:-

Review Mechanism (RM), this comprises of two stage analysis

  • Assessment of prior learning (APL)

  • Assessment of future potential (AFP)

APL helps in identifying the subjects already learnt, practices known by the students with the total amount of knowledge available. This is done for each student and made into a data package for her / him. This data is updated every semester and maintained properly till the end of the program. APL measures the shortcomings (if any) for the prerequisites of the subjects to be taken under the course. A student found falling short in a particular area of knowledge and practice is given special coaching. In that area to make her / him come up to the desired standard. Apart from the special coaching a general awareness program is conducted for a period of one month prior to the actual session.

Assessment of future potential (AFP) helps the student identified the right mix and profile of career for her/him. This is combination of Personality Mapping done through Management Micro Lab (MLML). A student will get the benefit of MML once a year. Students belonging to Master of Business Administration of EIILM can now opt for MML once a year.

After the Review Period is over, the course starts at formal pace. Delivery of the course is the function of the subjects. For a multifunctional course like Master of Business Administration the teaching pedagogy is much wider. The Institute follows a general pedagogy for teaching and learning that cuts across various disciplines.

General Pedagogy for Teaching & Learning

Teaching at EIILM is imparted as three steps as depicted in the following paragraphs :-

  • Preparations Prior to Class (PPC)
  • Continuous Inculcation in the Class (CIC)
  • Post Class Classification in the Class (PCT)

PPC : Students are given the course packs for each subject and the lesson plans in the beginning. Whereas a course packs is the complete coverage of the subjects, the lessons plans are the broad outlines of the points likely to be discussed in each class. Therefore, the students know before hand item of the particular subject that is going to be discussed in the subsequent days, comes to the class with the preparation and asks questions for further analysis, clarification and additional inputs. Good PPC makes the students competent to have a full participation in the CIC.

CIC : Classes are basically interactive. Teachers talk, listen and make others talk as well. While talking on the subject the teacher uses any of the methods described below: - Chalk & Talk: This method implies that the teacher does not use any teaching aid. As is expected of a senior professor in the West, here at EIILM also, senior and experienced teachers adopt chalk and talk method of teaching inside classroom. The teacher writes points on the black board with a chalk or on a white board with a marker. Points thus written by teachers are explained and elaborated in the talks.

Overhead Projected Presentation : This method incorporates a teaching aid with transparencies. When a teacher shows transparencies, students do not waste their time noting down the contents, rather they interact with the faculty and take note on important points. Copies of the transparencies are distributed among all students.

Power Point and / or Multimedia Presentation : This method involves the computer (desktop / laptop) in the class room. The teacher presents a series of slides on the power point and multimedia for better understanding and appreciation of the student. Soft copies of the presentation are made available to the students whenever it is required.
