The Learning Centre ‘CARNIVAL’ at CFAL/ELC on Sunday 16 December
Mangaluru: Centre for Advanced Learning (CFAL) and the newly established The Learning Centre (TLC) PU College is organizing ‘The Learning Centre Carnival’ on Sunday, December 16 from 10 am to 2 pm at CFAL/ELC campus, Bejai-Kapikad, Mangaluru. If an alternative approach towards learning is something that appeals to you, then you are welcome to explore more at the CARNIVAL this Sunday. The DC of Mangaluru, Sasikanth Senthil, IAS will felicitate CFAL student Prathyush Poduval for his outstanding accomplishment of securing a silver medal for India in the International Astronomy and Astrophysics Olympiad. There will be lots of activities, demonstrations and contests and our team will be there to give you more information on how you can build a solid foundation in math, science, GMAT and other subjects that require logical reasoning. Besides this, children at ELC Kindergarten will be celebrating grandparent’s day with stories, games, stalls, pottery, food and fun.
CFAL Mangaluru and the team at the newly established TLC PU College have been working towards changing the paradigms of learning in the region and has been breaking record after record in some of the most difficult examinations in the country including Olympiads, NTSE, KVPY, JEE. How are these extraordinary results, that have never been seen in the region before, being achieved?
Math and Science are often perceived as difficult subjects. It is generally believed that premier institutions like IITs, NITs, IISc, BIT’s, IISERs etc. only admit geniuses into their institutions. Are these assumptions true? Is it possible that an alternative approach towards teaching and learning can change these circumstances? Instead of a textbook-based, exam-based approach, would an inquiry-based, self-learning approach change outcomes?
Good results are mostly a byproduct of a strong foundational understanding of a subject. School marks that can be achieved by merely memorizing a textbook and solving older question papers is not an indicator of such an understanding. Deep understanding happens when a subject is studied through observation, analysis, asking questions, trying to figure out answers by hands-on work, tinkering, making things, working with patterns, observing outcomes, peer discussions and self-learning. An environment where enquiry and exploration are made possible is where the most learning happens. Time and again, research studies have shown that children learn the most when they figure things out themselves instead of being told what to do. Yet, even as early as Kindergarten, we see a textbook based, teacher-centric, standardized approach for all children.
