Khoji Support Structure
How is Swaraj Uni different from other, formal universities?
Self-directed learning where individual interests and styles are the foundation of the programme
Learner decides the amount of time he/she requires to go into the depth of the subject
Learners carry out self and peer evaluation as well as develop their own learning portfolios
Grooming of learners so that they question the current state of society and develop the commitment and practice of sustainable action
All the learning opportunities are real and are based on understanding of local issues and their global context
Geared towards starting one’s own enterprise
Co-learners coming from a wide variety of backgrounds and ages that can help in bringing different flavours and learning resources to the process
A sense of community and democratic co-learning environment
Each learner will have a mentor in their area of interest and a mitra to provide guidance in the learning process
Hindi and local languages are used in the learning process to bring out feelings and nuances, and to keep ourselves in contact with our cultures
Compulsory learning- individual interests and learning styles are not taken into account
Limited time and opportunity to understand the subject in-depth
Evaluation based on testing which creates fears, inferiority complexes and a sense of competition with others
Grooming of learners so that they become spectators, producers and consumers for the state and corporations
Teaching matter and the process is disconnected from their immediate world
Geared towards finding a job in the government or a corporation
Students separated by age groups. Students from similar age group are put together in the classrooms.
Hierarchical and authoritarian learning environment
Larger class size, so lack of individual attention
Teaching done majorly in English, which disconnects the student from local culture
