Core Activities and Pedagogy of MMTTC at IIITDM Kancheepuram

We specialize in Project-Based Learning pedagogy

MMTTC at IIITDM Kancheepuram specializes in Project-based learning (PBL) an instructional approach that belongs to the epistemological paradigm of social constructivism. Constructivist instruction, especially that which is based on design tasks or problem-solving, places high demands on the teacher’s subject-matter understanding. The teacher must not only be familiar with the principles underlying a topic of study but must also be prepared for the variety of ways these principles can be explored. TLC offers the opportunity for teachers in higher/school education to be prepared for adopting PBL in their teaching-learning process.
