Facilitating learning through research and discovery
NIIT University (NU) believes that the time for pure textbook learning has passed. University curricula must keep pace with changing times. The old ‘give-take’ mode of teaching and learning cannot address the challenges of a modern knowledge economy. Therefore, rather than choosing a ‘one size fits all’ rigid teaching approach, NU promotes the ‘research and discovery’ method that focuses on long-term retention of learning.
In keeping with this approach, NU has developed several innovative teaching learning methods that focus on understanding how learning takes place. It takes cognisance of what to teach, and how; guides teaching processes and transforms learning.
Learning technologies are those technological tools that are used to enhance teaching, learning and assessment. While most remote learning remains a one-way experience, NU deploys technology to deliver the complete interactive classroom experience to students in non-classroom and remote settings.
