Identification of Advanced and Slow Learners-
In a class diverse and heterogeneous group of students are studying. They are identified as Advanced Learners and Slow Learners. The slow learners are identified by the course faculty and are divided into groups to conduct sessions for them as per the schedule. Proper documentation is made in terms of contents of the topics and attendance. Advanced Learners are identified after the internal examination of the first phase of first semester and subsequently they are asked to indicate their area of interest such as case writing, research paper writing, business plan, quiz completion, market survey etc. The other needs/interests/hobbies of the student is cultivated and promoted with the help of student forums and committees.
