2 Dr.V.S.Damodharan and Mr.V.Rengarajan Faculty, Business Studies Department, Higher College of Technology Sultanate of Oman We think too much about effective methods of teaching and not enough about effective methods of learning.

3 ABSTRACT/PURPOSE  Evaluate traditional methods of teaching as well as multimedia teaching methods  Teaching must include two major components sending and receiving information  Any communication methods that serve this purpose without destroying the objective could be considered as innovative methods of teaching.  Benefits of innovative methods Improve Learning process Strengthen governance Strengthen governance

ANALYSIS OF TRADITIONAL METHOD OF TEACHING

6 LIMITATIONS Teaching in classroom using chalk and talk is “one way flow” of information Teaching in classroom using chalk and talk is “one way flow” of information Teachers often continuously talk for an hour without knowing students response and feedback.

16 MNEMMONICS - WORDS- WORDS – WORDS APPROACH  Concept approach.  Associated meaning.  Increase word power  Dictionary. ROLE PLAYING AND SCENARIO ANALYSIS BASED TEACHING  Role playing  Practical approach  Theory supplemented by practical.

17 INNOVATIONS  Internet ready phones  Handheld computers  Digital cameras  Mp3 players  Laptops  Elearning

18 INNOVATIVE METHODS  Courses  Students’ needs  Industry requirments  Specialization  Medium Evaluation &Assessment + On-the-Job Training OUR GOAL: Clarity is the key
