Turning crisis into opportunity by taking student learning online
Leading higher education institute JK Lakshmipat University, in its commitment to lifelong learning, has initiated the JKLU Signature Session Series by conducting regular webinars by veterans from different walks of life. The series of highly inspirational and enriching webinars was planned as a step towards putting the students on a continuous learning post the government decision on the lockdown, which was looked at as an opportunity to connect with stalwarts who have always had a lot to share (but never had the time until now) about their journey and insights that would inspire the university’s students, faculty and staff, in their respective professions as well as in life.
Since, Webinar is the default mode of communication during this lockdown, JKLU thought of sharing this series of knowledge so that everyone will benefit from this initiative.
The webinars, which started from 11th April saw tremendous enthusiasm and response both from attendees and the speakers. Dr. Pramath Raj Sinha, Founding Dean of ISB Hyderabad, MD of Harappa Education and Board Member of JKLU said, “I have not had as many attendees in my regular classes as I am seeing online today. I am really excited to share my experience and knowledge with everybody, especially the students of JKLU which might help them to excel in their career.”
Overwhelmed with response of the attendees, Dr. RL Raina , Vice Chancellor, JK Lakshmipat University, Jaipur, said , “At JKLU, we are excited to initiate this new method of wisdom sharing and will continue this series more vigorously, going forward. The speakers in the webinars are focused on the student’s career journey and how they should reshape their career path post end of the COVID-19 lockdown”.
