Industry survey: Conventional Teaching Methods No Longer Relevant

27 Nov 2020.01:17 AM

The new generation calls for a change in the education approach from conventional and old methods to a more communicative and technological way. This type of teaching includes only practice and repetition of structure that makes students uninterested in the class, discouraged, bored, and ultimately losing interest in the whole course.

A modern institution  like  the  Eshan Group of Institutions  is  constantly evolving with its student-centric methods of teaching and trying to figure out the best route to meet the need of students to get the personalized and meaningful education that they deserve.

Moreover, Conventional teaching forces students to memorize and spit in the test because it's the only way for them to show their mastery in a specific topic.

According to research, students retain information for over long periods when they are learning subconsciously. Thus, Researchers have urged teachers and educators to adapt their classroom teaching to be more student-centered and to introduce collaborative learning.

Below are some points that show why conventional methods of teaching are not relevant anymore: -

  • Conventional teaching methods are more concerned with being teacher-centric rather than being student-centric. With being the teacher controller of the learning environment, students are regarded as just "knowledge holes" that need to be filled with information.
  • Traditional teaching methods are still being practiced in the schools of India, where teachers act as a dispenser of knowledge rather than being a mere facilitator who can help their students to reach their true potential, teachers should be the ones who can come to each student's understanding level and bring out the best in them.
  • Conventional methods are not relevant according to this dynamic generation because the reasons that made them relevant at the start of the 21st century are no longer relevant.

The older generation was taught only what was needed to get a job. A school's job then was to prepare students for the assembly line or a routine job.

Today, when the competition is at its peak and pandemic has already left the industries severely injured. Students need to be mentally strong with sharp memory. Corporations are constantly in need of new hires who can think critically, creatively, communicate, and collaborate.

Eshan Group of Institutions have been working on an identical model and have launched several Certification & Diploma courses which are in the most demand in this dynamic online environment.

Modern methods will be used to make these courses more interactive, practical, and student-centric, some of the methods are mentioned below: -

  • Technology-driven classrooms
  • Cross-curricular connections
  • Inquiry-based learning
  • Emphasis on understanding of concepts
  • Linking curriculum with life
  • Emphasis on skill-building, life skills, and values
  • Smart interactive boards
  • Collaborative learning
  • Differential learning
  • Activity-based learning and learning labs
  • Interdisciplinary learning
  • Integrative and social responsibility and civic engagement
  • Digitization in teaching, learning assessment and feedback
  • Collaborative learning
  • Differentiated instruction
  • Problem-based learning
