| LPU has a team of academicians dedicated to innovate latest advancements for development of more than 200 programmes in 30 distinct disciplines. Its innovative, highly integrated curriculum helps students develop and hone their skills while building their knowledge of fundamentals.
The curriculum of the University promises imbibing in students the core knowledge of the course with sufficient practical aspect attached to it. The curriculum is developed focusing on the future trends of the corporate world and understanding the skills and expertise that would be expected from the future professionals.
The core curriculum emphasises on applied learning and encompasses the basic concept of experiential learning. The core modules are structured to give an impressive and broad grasp of the essentials that a successful professional must have. These modules balance hard, statistical abilities with the softer but no less important abilities of inspiring and managing people. The curriculum taught also takes learning beyond the classroom, making case analysis and class discussions more than academic exercises.
The University ensures that the curriculum is as per international as well as industry standards and is properly maintained. To help achieve these objectives, the University has specifically started some practises few of which have been mentioned below:
Faculty Department Academic Committee (FDAC)
To look after the curriculum and pedagogy of the University, a committee called the Faculty Department Academic Committee has been framed. The Committee ensures that the curriculum and pedagogy framed by the University is viable enough to impart quality education to the students.
Board of Studies
The curriculum formed is revised every academic session under the Board of Studies (BOS) which considers the inputs of teaching experts, participants from the industry, other academic institutions (apart from LPU) and the students. The suggestions given after the review are incorporated in the curriculum to ensure that the curriculum is all the better to impart contemporary teaching to the students.
For synchronised teaching the teachers regularly meet and discuss the advancements in their course and provide inputs and updates which are beneficial for them in terms of delivering knowledge to the students.
Professional Learning Committees(PLC)
To pave the way for the teachers to come together and discuss new and innovative ways of teaching a particular topic, Professional Learning Committees (PLC) have been formed.
For example: CSE teachers may sit together and discuss recent developments in teaching techniques. This approach followed by the University helps the teachers to learn new ways of teaching which are easier for the students to understand and implement.
Apart from the above, the academicians of the University are involved in regular interaction with the higher authorities, reviewing the curriculum and making additions in existing teaching practices.
The students give feedback about the teachers and the teaching techniques at the end of the session which helps to find out the requirements of a student which assists in developing easy methods of teaching.
To further upgrade its curriculum, Levelled English course has been started by the University. This has been started with an objective of improving the basic reading, writing, speaking and listening skills of the students in English language. The courses have been made in such a way that a teacher turns out to be a trainer first. The teacher throughout the teaching session trains the students about the basic knick knacks of the language through variety of teaching methods like extempore, debate, presentations etc.
