STRATEGY 1:

 INVOLVING COURSE RELATED TO I&E:

I&E cell enhances the creative thinking abilities of a student. It aims at bringing out the entrepreneurial skills of a student. In order to make I&E more effective, introduction of a course that focuses on innovation, is essential.

PROCESS:

  • First, care should be taken in framing the course and syllabus. It should be a interactive course without putting more burden on the students.
  • Next challenge is to introduce this course to the students of all the disciplines. Preferably in the second year itself, this course should be made as a part of the curriculum. Mr.Jagadeesh Babu, coordinator of  I&E cell  shall teach the course. It would be apt to name the course as 'Basics of Innovation & Entrepreneurship'
  • Every semester this course shall be offered and the maximum of  200 students shall be taken in for the course.
  • Since there are students from different branches, we planned to have the classes during 3 -4 , where at least students from few branches have a free period. It shall be a 30 hour course.
  • A minimum of 60% of marks are required to complete the course successfully.  Students who have successfully attended the course shall be provided 3 credits.
  • Faculty coordinator of  ED cell MR.Vara Prasad and the Department Of Management Studies shall also be involved in teaching the course.
  • In order to help students to think innovatively , various activities related to innovation, few workshops and project expo's need to be implemented .
  • Collaborative learning should be developed among students to make learning more interesting, students should be given more opportunities to share their ideas and knowledge.
  • At the end of the course, students must be asked to identify a problem within their class and come up with the possible solutions and select the best one. This can be done by interaction with fellow students. Students can take help from the club coordinators regarding this aspect.
  • Instead of having a normal evaluation process that generally involves written tests, students can be assessed based on their performance regarding solving the problem that they have identified.

STRATEGY 2:

SUPPORTING PROJECTS :

We do not have this project park where the  innovative projects are exhibited and now we are deriving a strategy for this problem as mentioned below.

PROCESS

Project Park:

  • We are in the process of implementing this in our college .
  • Students who have ideas to make projects will be involving several stages where the ideas are collected and they are developed under mentorship of faculty and these  developed projects are exhibited in the 3-5 day park in our campus.
  • It means that all the projects related to all streams can exhibit them in the park .Through this they can come up with their ideas i.e. their projects.Invitation will be sent to other colleges and also to the famous funding agencies so that the best  projects will be funded.
  • From this, student can get encouragement and this leads them towards entrepreneurship.

Resources provided by I&E:

In the process of completing the projects successfully students need the resources, money, guidance from I&E. So, I&E is planning to have the following resources

  • It takes almost 3 to 4 months to complete the projects.
  • Students must form into group of 4(maximum of 2 from each department) and select a mentor of their choice from each department. This makes the project inter-disciplinary.
  • In a week’s time, students start working out on their projects.
  • In order to make sure their projects are going on as per schedule, they have to send their progress monthly to faculty whom they opted as their mentor
  • If anyone wants to add extensions to their project and need financial support, they get ‘seed money’ of about $1600
  • They have to wait for one month to get the requested seed money K. Chokkanathan, I&E cell coordinator takes care of these. This request process is done in the month of March.

EXECUTION PROCESS:

                                    Every year we are planning to exhibit it in the months’ of December and March. We are going to present all the projects which are better and useful to the society. So after presenting these projects park all the industries and companies who have visited the park can have a chance to buy those projects and ultimately leads students towards entrepreneurship.

STRATEGY 3:

MAKING CLASSES INTER-DISCIPLINARY:

  • At present, students are allowed to sit in a particular classroom that too in their respective departments. But, in order to make the students more collaborative we make  I & E as interdisciplinary which helps the students from one branch to share their views with the students of other departments.
  • In this course teams are divided irrespective of their departments and we ensure that each team consists of students from all the departments
  • This can also be applied for student and faculty. Through this different departments students can get connected with different faculty irrespective of their stream and they might also work on different projects.
  • From this process, the students will also start learning how to adapt to different situations and how to manage the people from different cultures. This really helps them when they enter into the real corporate world.                                                        
  • Each class comprises of 72 students out of them, 12 students can be from the same department (total 6 departments are there). Taking the help from Mrs.Pratibha madam, Administration Officer and Mrs.Athar Sameena Khan madam, Student Welfare Officer, we finalize the division process. This shall be implemented for the next academic year (2018-19).

STRATEGY 4

TALENT EXPO:

This is a platform where students can exhibit their hidden talents. Each and every student has some hidden talent in him/her. Either it may be inherited or learnt.

HOW ARE WE GOING TO ACHIEVE THIS :

  • In Talent expo students are given chance to exhibit their hidden talents which motivates the students by encouraging them to participate in this EXPO.
  • A register book is maintained in which each and every student has to enroll themselves and their talents that they wish to exhibit.
  • These talents can be anything like Dance, music, photography, Martial arts and so on.After enrolling themselves,

Once in every 6 months this day is conducted where students can perform their talents.

RESULT:

Here talents can be encouraged. If a student who is  good at dance can exhibit and on the other hand if a student is good at music can perform, this is the best platform to learn both music and dance. Moreover, it is fun too.


Strategy 5:

MITSians - Voice

MITSians - Voice is a social website that will be designed by and for the students to promote the interaction among students from departments.

HOW do we ACHIEVE THIS is :

  • our present generation, are techno savvy and more on the social networking sites like Facebook Twitter, whatsapp, instagram, snapchat, etc.
  • Most of us love to spend our time in social media, so creating a social website is a good idea.
  • So we will use the same technique.
  • This website will have a login for each student who joins the college with their registered numbers.
  • Once the students login in to this site, all the detailed information of  Past, present and future activities will be displayed in the form of Facebook posts.
  • The information dump of each cell will be in a page.
  • We will also add Like, comment and share options so that interested events’ information  will be available with the related updates .
  • A featured page is idea-Share, which  encourages students to post the innovative, novel ideas.
  • If any of the student likes an idea posted by the other student, then they can form into a team and can collaborate to transform the idea to do a mini-project.
  • Campus Webmaster will have all the editable rights.

RESULT:

Students and faculty from various departments will be in touch with each other, sharing their views, ideas and collaborating with each other which in turn leads to solving the major problems in our campus: Peer to Peer Learning & Faculty - Student Interaction will enhance student progression and a healthy conducive learning environment will be evolved in MITS Ecosystem.

Strategy 6:

MITS APP:

                  It has become a problem, where freshers find it difficult to acknowledge the resources present in the college.

Mits app is going to help the students to acquire the information in all aspects about our campus.

Things to be implemented!

  • Campus Map:  Here we are going to show the whole college 3D map with the pinpoint location of all resources in our campus.
  • Clubs and cells :We are going to comprehend cells and clubs of MITS along with the faculty in charge, student coordinators and the events conducted by those clubs and cells.
  • Staff  Information:Students of MITS can access the faculty information along with their wiki bio.
  • Moodle: Here the students can easily upload their assignments and they can get access to the study materials uploaded by the faculty
  • Mits Radio: This radio feature helps students to know the circulars which they missed. The radio is all about our campus related matter announcements and with a pinch of entertainment.
  • Digi-Lib: Students can quickly get E-books.
  • Wall of fame: In this wall of fame we will be posting all the achievements of the students.
  • News and events: this provides students with information about events and different activities taking place in the campus.
  • Gallery: In the gallery, students can find photos and videos related to all the events.


Result: 

This app enables students to know each and everything about the campus.



Strategy 7:

Adopting a class:


It is a process in which we UIF candidates will be adopting  a classroom and improving the students by letting them explore how things can be done differently and in a more funable way.
How do we achieve this?


  • Firstly we are going to select one class and introduce ourselves by interacting with them. we are going to name that class as UIF adoption classroom.
  • We will collect the previous records of the attendance, scores and non-academic achievements  of all the student of that class.
  • Then we spot out different ways to improve the performance of the students in every aspect.
  • We will engage workshops for the adopted classroom and teach them how to improve their academics and non- academic activities by conducting workshops on design thinking which will help them see through loops.
  • After an academic year, we will compare the previous records with the on going academic records.
  • In this way, we start with adopting one class and slowly implement it throughout the campus.


Result:

By adopting classrooms our aim is to develop students in all the aspects and to promote I&E in the campus.
              

Strategy 8:

MITS talks:

MITS talks is a platform similar to TED talks, where the persons who had reached to great heights in their career & in their life, share about their success stories with the MITS students.

Why MIT’s talks?


“Mindset is what separates the best from the rest”.We firmly believe in this. If successful people come and share their success stories the students get inspired from them. This will motivate students to set their goals higher and dream big, most importantly they will know how hard and innovatively they should/can work in order to achieve their goals.

How we are going to implement this?


  • We will approach passed-out students from different fields who are successful from our Institution and also people who are successful in their respective fields
  • We will invite them to our campus by planning an event and make the students to attend the program.


Result:

Here students get motivated. This helps students to be more focused on their goals and select a right path to achieve them.


Strategy 8:

Discourse MITS:

                        It is a blog  which is to acknowledge students with new information that can help to set more discussions like debate kind of activities from which students share their knowledge with each other and know things better.


What is the Discourse MITS:

                    Discourse mits is to set a healthy argument or discussion to share their knowledge with each other so that students can mingle with everyone and get out of their fear zone(stage fear).

Importance of Discourse MITS:


  • Here the students will think innovatively and they post different solutions to one problem in a creative way.
  • They learn to accept everyone's idea.
  • Students can improve in all aspects by participating actively in this blog.
  • They can gain so much knowledge just by conversing with different people with different mindsets.
  • Students get to know more about what they already know/don’t know.
  • They learn to see things in different ways for solutions.



RESULT:  

         Students can know each other and they start thinking in innovatively, this is how we can develop our I&E.
