TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Learning is an on-going process. Lakhotia institute of design is built with state of art infrastructure that provides students with a wide range of learning experiences. At the Lakhotia Institute of Design, we have a variety of tools that facilitate learning in students and we follow a flexible and adaptable methodology towards training that is on par with the changing needs and norms of the industry. LID always stays attuned with the surroundings, the environment and the culture that makes the society thereby occupying a stand-alone place among other design institutions. LID offers rich knowledge of the society and blends it with design developments that are driven contextually and the thoughts of the world. This makes LID stand on a pedestal above all other design institutions.

At LID students are encouraged to experience, experiment, innovate and integrate learning to make real-time professional decisions. Our teaching methodology is characterized by inculcating thinking skills and promote self-reliant learning. We encourage students to investigate and learn cultural and creative factors that influence art and design. These factors include the social, technological, economic, ecological, aesthetic and global forces that shape modern thinking and influences artists and designers to different directions.

One of the most important aspects of our learning approach is to debate and discuss. We encourage our students to review and test, debate and develop ideas rigorously. We have classroom training through lectures and brainstorming sessions, audio-visual learning through presentations on research works, field-based learning in industries and real-time work situations, learning from peers and mentor emulation, project-based learning and various other innovative methods of training and learning.
Students’ critical thinking and independent working skills in students are enhanced by linking theoretical knowledge to new ideas and challenges. This facilitates them to acquire a complete understanding of the of art and design and its application, development and progression choices and opportunities.

It transcends from bringing fragments together to form a whole generic perspective to specific goals. Thus, an overall cohesive, appropriate and nurturing environment for learning exists at LID.
