Course Guidelines

The pedagogy:

The class will be formed into five groups. You will be working in one of the groups for case presentation. The group will be formed on the 1st day of the course and the list will be provided to the faculty indicating the names on the same day.

Class participation and surprise quiz: It includes attendance, active involvement in all classroom discussion and activities, and case presentations.

Guidelines for both Individual project ( Project - 1) and Group Project ( Project - 2):

The objective of these projects is to enable you to gain hands on learning experience in developing a training package for an organization. This project has four components as mentioned below:

  1. Need assessment
  2. Objective setting
  3. Program design
  4. Evaluation of the training

The structure / sequence of the project should be as follows:

  1. Choose an organisation of your choice and gain the organisation support to carry out this project
  2. Decide the coverage (Job/Category/Unit/Department/Division etc.) of the study
  3. Begin needs assessment with organisation analysis and requirement analysis, then undertake task analysis, case analysis and person analysis. Assess training needs
  4. Identify non-training issues at the end of the personal analysis that effect employee performance. Suggest measures to address these issues
  5. Derive objectives bases on the needs identify
  6. Design training program keeping in view the objectives of training which you derive from training needs
  7. Send the report to me ([email protected]) covering needs assessment, objective setting, training design and evaluation phases two weeks before midterm.
  8. The content of the report: Report should contain precisely the entire process from organizational support to needs assessment, object setting program design, and evaluation model.  Append questionnaire etc. used for data collection.
  9. Adding any amount of theoretical inputs will directly attract minus marks.
