Abstract

The student centric learning has been a much debated subject in the higher education field today. In the B-School environment, students have to demonstrate themselves as matured learners and learn to be successful and hence the need for this change is felt more. The onus is on the teacher to redesign and conduct the course in a way that requires students to hold up till the end of the educational program. The current study is about bringing out the Student Centric Learning Process in the institute through Student Engagements. In order to accommodate this, the academic administration allowed changes in the systems and procedures within the purview of the University norms. The classroom environment, pedagogical changes, small group formation, use of Learning Management System, etc. were addressed to create an atmosphere for student engagement. The introduction of ERP as part of the curriculum and how it emerged as student centric activity through student engagement is pivotal to this study. It emerged from the student feedback and classroom experiences that the student centric learning help students to learn better and internalise the understanding of the subject in contrast to rote memorization and managing examination pressures.

Keywords: Student Engagement, Learning Management System, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Voluntary Triggers, Peer to Peer teaching-learning
