Teaching Methodology at Mayapur Institute

  1. 1. Teaching Methodology at Mayapur Institute At MI, we employ Vaishnava Training and Education method of teaching. Unique feature of this method is that it stresses on the application of sastric theories
  2. 2. There are three broad stages to any learning process. Sravana Manana Nidhidhyasana Hearing knowledge from the teacher Gaining an intellectual understanding by reflecting on what is learned Realisation and application in one's life Knowledge Skills Values what the student will know what the student will be able to do How the student will be All learning falls within these three categories
  3. 3. Seven purposes of ISKCON – Purpose No. -1 To systematically propagate spiritual knowledge to society at large and to educate all peoples in the techniques of spiritual life in order to check the imbalance of values in life and to achieve real unity and peace in the world. To facilitate a systematic, Krishna-conscious education, Mayapur Institute employs an aims-driven (as opposed to content-driven) approach to studying sastra developed by VTE.

  6. 6. Aims-driven approach to studying sastra  At Mayapur Institute we employ aims-driven (as opposed to content-driven) approach to studying sastra developed by VTE., Each courses are based on a set of Aims and Objectives and proper Assessment methods to measure the learning.  The courses at MI have a number of distinguishing features, based on sound and explicit educational principles and a well-articulated methodology.  It thus goes beyond memorisation and intellectual understanding, to explicitly promote students’ application of knowledge, their development of appropriate values, and, ultimately, personal realisation.  In ‘content-driven’ approach, teachers remain more concerned about what is taught rather than why they are teaching in the first place. It is essential to have clearly focused aims without which we will undoubtedly run into difficulties, such as leaning excessively towards knowledge-transmission. This will result in the marginalisation of skills and values as observed in material education.
