Experiential learning at GGGI includes different types of activities, with one common goal- to immerse students in “hands-on” experience outside the classroom. Following are the Experiential
Learning activities adopted at GGGI.
In this the students are deputed to work in an organization related to their professional field and thus get trained in that organisation. They usually work on a project for the entire duration.
Industrial visit includes students going on a field visit to an organisation / any site relating to the profession for which they are being groomed in order to get a feel of the real world’s professional demands. It provides a valuable opportunity to discover the realities and practices of
the profession the students are aiming for.
Projects are a crucial part of any programme at GGGI. The Projects are done by a group of students and are intended to be intensive ,requiring significant effort in planning and implementation as well as preparation of a substantial final written work product. The group students are made to choose a project from their domain and asked to conduct practicals and real life studies on them. They provide hands on learning experience to the students by enabling them by making them aware how to convert the theoretical knowledge to the practical one They also
help to boost ‘learning by doing’ teamwork.
In order to prepare the students for facing job interviews in a better way, Career portfolio is made a part of the pedagogy. As a part of this, the students prepare a file depicting their interests and achievements throughout their student life. It is divided into 3 segments viz. Academics ,Co-curricular (literary, cultural sports) Personal (hobbies, community service, institutional memberships)
Mock Interviews are conducted to make the students aware about the level of interviews conducted by the industry expert panel. In Mock Interviews the Institute creates a virtual corporate environment for the students and virtual interview sessions are held where the students respond as their final interview day and these sessions are recorded audio visually. The recordings are shown to students and feedback on individual basis is given by the panel which helps the student to do their own competitive analysis and find their strengths and weaknesses. The Panel consists of teachers from the Institute as well as the industry experts.
