Learning at Rishihood

Learning philosophy and learning methods form the basis of pedagogy, curriculum, faculty recruitment and learning material at Rishihood.

The objective is simple yet sincere: prepare learners to create a deep social impact and achieve ‘rishihood’.

Every generation has some big and important questions in front of them. Our teaching-learning process provokes the students to think of the big problems of the time and therefore create a social impact.

What are some of the big questions?

ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY

HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT

TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION

HEALTH AND WELLBEING

JOBS AND LIVELIHOOD

  4. Intuitive learning
  5. Experiential learning
  6. Reflective learning

Learning Environment

Learning happens in the following environment

  1. Human – faculty, peers, staff, guests
  2. Physical – campus design, infrastructural resources
  3. Technological – Learning Management System, e-resources
  4. Social – The surrounding community

Interaction of Disciplines

Academic topics do not develop in isolation. Knowledge is integrated and interdisciplinary. We prepare our learners to think holistically and provide a learning environment closer to real life. Rishihood believes in four kinds of interactions in academic disciplines to provide a holistic learning environment:

  1. Crossdisciplinary: Viewing one curricular subject from the standpoint of another (for example: economics of music)
  2. Multidisciplinary: The combination of several content areas that are concerned with one problem, but without intentional integration (for example: intellectual property law and food technology)
  3. Plurdisciplinary: The combination of content areas that are somewhat related; (for example: food and agriculture)
  4. Transdisciplinary: Beyond the scope of the disciplines; that is, to start with a problem and bring to bear knowledge from the disciplines.

Ways of Learning

Learning at a university is very different from school. Here, students need to be increasingly independent in their work. Here are some of the ways we introduce you to topics and eventually excel in the field:

  1. Lectures enable a whole group to be taught together. You will be expected to build on the information you gain from your lectures through your independent study. To make the best use of the lecture time, students read the resources that the instructor has listed before coming to class.
  2. Seminars allow a large group of students to listen to and interact with a guest speaker, a panel, or faculty members from a joint class.
  3. Group Discussions allow smaller groups of students and their tutors to discuss ideas and consider a topic in depth. If you find something fascinating during a lecture, group discussion is the best way to take it forward.
  4. Tutorials give you the chance to ask questions, check your understanding, and discuss assignments, either individually with a tutor or in a small group.
  5. Laboratory and practical workshops provide the opportunity to test concepts and methods introduced in lectures and tutorials.
  6. In-person mentorship is a way you interact with your seniors and teachers. It gives you the space to raise fundamental and personal doubts, providing the required mentorship.
  7. Fieldwork makes you test the knowledge on the ground and take feedback to learn in the class. It is integrated into many of the programs and a critical component in others.
  8. Group work and peer learning enable you to collaborate with other students on a project so that you learn to work as part of the team, and also learn from each other’s’ understanding of the topic.

Library and Learning Centre

The LLC is an all-day resource for the students. It gives you access to electronic, print and multimedia resources with staff on hand for support. As well as computers, Wi-Fi for laptops and mobile devices, we have technologically advanced learning space to make group work easier, more involving and much more interactive. We have quiet study zones too, to allow you to concentrate on peace and support.

Our large collection of e-books and e-journals together with printed collections means that you have extensive access to the resources that you need for your assignments.
