From solving crime to how music instruments work, check out these quirky courses at Ahmedabad University (EDEX Live)
What if you can study all about cybersecurity, crime investigation and more in just three weeks? That's exactly what these Independent Study Period courses are all about. These 'beyond the classroom' courses are conducted by Ahmedabad University over a period of three weeks in an eight-hour a day format. Rather than following the regular curricular period format, these courses are offered to enable concentrated learning through block courses, studio-inspired experiential courses, perspective sharing, skill building, field courses and innovative experiments in learning. The university came up with this initiative in 2016 and showcased some of the courses last December.
We spoke to Dr Bibek Banerjee, Senior Dean, Strategic Initiatives and Planning, Ahmedabad University after the event to find out all about these interesting courses that are rooted in disciplines like Literature, Sociology, Design, Science, Technology and more.
