CGC Divisions || Vishwaniketan
The CGC division at Vishwaniketan has a privilege of being the first in India and it was obvious as Vishwaniketan is actually an outcome of all the efforts made by CTIF, Gisfi in last 20 years in India. The journey to transform education from conventional approach to project based learning (PBL) has been amazing with CGC. The Ph.D programme for Indian teachers in collaboration with CGC, divisions in Europe has changed the mindset hugely. That was useful to evolve PBL methods suitable to Indian scenario and implement successfully. More than 70 teachers have benefited from it and is going on every year.
After the 42 days Business Modeling summer training at Herning Campus, Aarhus University, Denmark, in June 2019, especially arranged under the EU CENTRAL project Prof Neelam Kamthe, Dr Sharwari Sane and Prof Sameer Shaikh have started the promotion of the BeeLab and its tools in colleges in India. Over 120 students and 10 faculty members from KIT’s Institute of Management Education & Research successfully completed the workshop. Currently we are in the process to install the BeeLab at Vishwaniketan Business Modelling Centre of Excellence. Once the Lab is installed, we plan to expose the BeeLab and its tools to students all over India. We will also be inviting industries and businesses to make use of the BeeLab and its expertise to solve their problems and also embrace innovations.
