IMT’s Preparedness for Online Classes

IMT’s Preparedness for Online Classes

IMT has announced its dates for commencement of Online classes for batch 2020-2022.  The foundation and orientation programme for the new batch will commence on Monday, August 10 ,2020. The institute has geared up and is ready with all preparedness of experienced faculty to start online mode teaching. Faculty members at IMT Ghaziabad had been doing online synchronous teaching with few external partners in executive education space since 2008. That experience has given an edge to them in easily switching over to online mode of teaching without compromising on the magic the students enjoy in regular classroom including mentoring students and examination. While the Institute is ready with detailed SOP to conduct the regular classroom sessions, moving beyond the traditional methods of teaching & evaluation under the prevalent circumstances, IMT has incorporated different pedagogy modes, which are very popular in many foreign nations. In modern time, where information is easily accessible from anywhere without the limitation of the physical borders, there is a lot which can be achieved using these modes of education.

Plan for Academic Year 2020-21

“The experience of teaching online by many of us helped us to quickly adjust to idea of teaching for our full time batch too, without losing time. The experienced faculty members supported young colleagues in learning tricks of online teaching & adopting new pedagogy faster.   Readiness of our IT infrastructure including three software for conducting webinars & classes through our laptops could happen from April first week itself for our existing students. We have started our second year classes from July 15 and all geared up to welcome our PGDM first year from August 10. The online mode of education does not compromise on rigor of business education and peer-to peer learning, is my view. Though we all human wait for personal touch” [Professor Mrinalini Shah, Chairperson PGDM, IMT Ghaziabad]

 

In this pandemic situation and with current regulatory directives IMT is geared up to conduct sessions online till it can have physical presence of students in campus.  Presently Institute is converting eight classrooms into studio mode for facilitating online teaching. In addition, ten modular/ mobile systems will be provided to faculty members who prefers to take class from their own offices.  This will help institute to follow social distancing with lesser students in class (as and when we will be allowed to host them at campus) and simultaneously streaming the class online to few students wherever they are. The Second Year Term V classes has started from July 15’ 2020 and Foundation term of first year will start from August 10, 2020 both online. Institute is using MS Team software for conducting classes.

 

Induction of First Year Students

The new batch of PGDM 2020-22 is set to join Institute on August 10, 2020 for the Foundation term. Before joining the institute, students must complete the registration which will happen through virtual meetings. To familiarise the student with the IMT Ghaziabad environment, it has scheduled Pre-Orientation webinars for the students. Pre-orientation classes are held from July 1- August 7’ 2020 on Lifesize platform & MS Team. Institute conducted many webinars inviting industry experts to prepare young minds for corporate professions ahead.   The purpose of the Pre-Orientation program is to give the students the exposure of various aspects of the IMT Ghaziabad and also to welcome them to the IMT community. The Pre-Orientation program helps the students knowing more about the PGDM program, different streams, courses, electives and various other activity. The batch is also given free access to few MOOC programs (Coursera) to help them prepare for their MBA.
