Graduation Hat Throw

ABOUT

A leadership fellowship that is revolutionizing high school education in India, with a futuristic syllabus, pioneering experiential and service learning, where we connect students directly to the struggles of their communities, help them gain a deeper understanding of these issues from global academic leaders, industry titans and youth leaders, and impart skills required to solve the problems of the 21st century, through immersive industry experiences.

At the end of the fellowship, the fellows would enter college with a personal understanding of the challenges and ethical dilemmas that leaders today have to combat, the critical thinking skills required to come up with solutions and the industry skills required to bring about societal change as future leaders in Science, Entrepreneurship, government and arts.

The fellowship will be spread across 9 weeks in the city of Mumbai, with lectures being delivered online and on ground-experience, simulations & skill bootcamps being conducted in person.

Learning pedagogy

 

 Service-learning is a form of experiential learning that combines learning objectives with community   service in order to provide a pragmatic, progressive learning experience while meeting societal needs.

It is a connected learning experience, linking the cognitive to the emotive. Students take the ideas they learn about in theory and connect them to real problems in practice, creating viable solutions for long term transformation in society.

The learner is involved in an exploration, where they have a physical, emotional & cognitive experience.

Concrete experience

Referred to as the 'Reflection' stage, where the learner shares their reactions and observations publicly and processes the experience through discussion and analysis

contemplation phase

Theory building

referred to as the 'conceptualization phase', where the learner broadens their understanding of the concept or situation by cementing their experience through generalizations and concept building.

The learner applies the concept learnt, attempting to solve the problem recognized during their experience, thus completing the cycle and solidifying learning.
