This program deals with the qualities that enable individuals to envisage a dynamic vision for the future, to harness the potential within them to deliver the vision into a successful reality and to contribute in the larger social orb that extends beyond the boundaries of their work and personal life. The program is facilitated in an experiential format to help assimilate and actualize the learning more effectively.
Sessions of the programme held at RSB Campus, Chennai. The programme was higly appreciated and the students actively participated in all the sessions.
Along with lectures, the teaching and learning process included learning through case studies, interactive technology linked exercises, learning through music, movies, games, videos, and student led activities. The entire program was experiential in nature.
The program also enabled students open up, imbuing them with self-confidence & enthusiasm. A lot of reflective sessions help them to understand about their self leading to discovery of inner potential. Beside class activities each student was given assignment at the individual level and was analysed and evaluated by the facilitators of SAFIM to help them to develop those qualities.
Live projects also assigned to the students that they can learn development, planning, and implementation of a project and get the first-hand experience. All students were divided into four groups and each group one project was given and each project was linked with a social impact creation.
