The Teaching & Learning activities at the CLMP are focused on the following broad areas:
Assurance of Learning (AoL) is the process towards continuous improvement of a program. The primary purpose of doing AoL is ensuring that students have achieved the goals we have set. The process entails the program to - define its learning goals, assess student achievement for these goals, and utilize what is learned through assessment to continually improve its curriculum.
The Centre for Learning and Management Practice organizes several annual and one-time events which are in line with its objective of facilitating overall improvement of pedagogy at B-schools. To conduct several of these events, the Centre invites members from ISB faculty, including those who may be visiting faculty from top international schools.
The Centre for Learning and Management Practice (CLMP) at the Indian School of Business (ISB), in its endeavour to promote effective learning and teaching with cases, offers Case Writing and Teaching Workshops through the year.
The intent of these workshops is to train high-potential faculty and case writers in the case writing and case teaching process, and to develop a case writing and case teaching culture in Indian management schools.
The objective of the Consortium is to provide hands-on learning on the art of effective teaching and classroom management for aspiring faculty to business schools. The Consortium is targeted at final year FPM /Ph.D./Doctoral candidates who aspire to teach in business schools, so that they can get a head start in teaching excellence, as they begin their careers. The Consortium will address various topics including effective case discussions, student engagement, classroom facilitation, delivery methodologies, as well as cutting-edge thinking in teaching and learning, such as the “flipped classroom”.
This workshop is meant to introduce you to formats of writing such as case studies, business articles, reports and white papers that are relevant to and popular with business audiences. In this workshop, you will learn how to adapt your writing style to suit various formats and audiences, along with guidance on how to improve your writing to be effective and impactful.
The idea of ISB Management ReThink was born out of the impending need to revisit and redefine the time-tested tenets of management, and at the same time, identify how they can still hold on to their relevance in contemporary times. With the ever-changing dynamics of management philosophies, and the associated classroom teaching methodology, it is about time to readjust the focus by shaking the fundamentals, breaking myths and bringing about the change necessary to survive in this cut-throat era of stiff competition.
