The Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIM-A) organised Annual HR Conclave on March 4 at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi. The Director of IIM-A Professor Ashish Nanda while delivering inaugural address mentioned that "IIMA plans to amalgamate classroom experience with digital technology so as to evolve a blended learning model."
He also commented on the rapidly increasing democratisation of knowledge transfer through MOOCs (massive open online courses), but expressed his concerns about the quality. "Executive Education is becoming a key part of the "learn some-earn some" pathway of most professionals' careers. There were a few panel discussions that were also held during the event. The first panel discussion titled "Learning Challenges in the Digital World" was chaired by IIMA's Prof. Amit Karna. In this discussion, the focus was on understanding the need for the role of the facilitator, intrinsic motivation, blended learning and learning experiences while forming a community of the stakeholders.
Post panel discussion, Prof. Sebastian Morris of IIM-A unveiled the annual calendar of institute's Executive Education and introduced the courses IIM-A would be undertaking in the blended learning space. The upcoming three courses will be offered in collaboration with Hughes Global Education and two with NIIT Imperia as the digital technology partners.
The second panel discussion focused on the issue of "Digitization and Future of Organisation" and was chaired by IIMA's Professor Sunil Sharma. This panel discussion focused on the adaptability of the organisation to digitization, the future of technology, and technology as an enabler, not a complete solution for training.
Overall it was a successful conclave that invited participation from the eminent speakers on issues of strategic importance for taking education to next level and rendering it resourceful for the corporate world.
