"SRM is embracing a new method of learning, not before seen in India. We will emphasise practical and application-oriented learning via projects and lab courses rather than monologues that are the typical feature of our classrooms," said P. Sathyanarayanan, President of SRM University, Amaravati.
To ensure the effective delivery of these courses, the faculty of the university will participate in annual design camps to learn techniques to blend MITx free online courses and MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) course material with relevant local content into the courses offered.
"Developing research-led universities is fundamental to the progress of the state and the nation. We aim to do just that by bringing solutions to the problems that plague today's world," says Dr. Narayana Rao, Pro-Vice Chancellor of the university.
