ISB, IIM-B joined hands for doctoral consortium

Participants were trained on effective teaching and classroom management

In an interesting collaboration, the Indian School of Business (ISB) and the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIM-B) have joined hands to organise the ISB-IIM doctoral consortium for teaching doctoral candidates who are about to start their careers as faculty at Indian B-schools.

Led by professors Arun Pereira, Executive Director of the Centre for Learning and Management (CLMP) at the ISB, and Sourav Mukherji, Dean of Academic Programmes at IIM-B, the consortium had participation from doctoral candidates at ISB, IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Lucknow, IIM Indore, and IIM Kozhikode, among others.

Participants were trained on effective teaching and classroom management, by using student-centered learning approaches to teaching, conducting effective case discussions, understanding the changing role of technology inside and outside the classroom, knowing the importance of student learning styles, how to engage with them better and what it takes to design a compelling learning experience for students.

Now in its fourth year, the consortium was, for the first time, organised jointly by the two B-schools, at the ISB’s Hyderabad campus. The programme was targeted at final year FPM /PhD/Doctoral candidates to help them get a head start as they begin their careers. A unique component of the programme was that each participant was required to teach and was provided substantive feedback, along with a recording of their teaching for review and reflection.

The Doctoral Consortium was supported and funded by the International Schools of Business Management (ISBM).
