After true learning there comes a change, which is a lifelong process and we are in week 11. Does learning have limits? This week we had more learning as well as an opportunity to hear alumni’s journey and their projects with Super60. Art of Unlearning and S60 alumni and projects was our week 11 sessions.
DAY 44 – ART OF UNLEARNING
Our async mode of session for the week was Art of Unlearning by Ms. Monisha Thangam K S which started with many common-sense view questions among our tribe. Our tribe had a lot of questions since everyone in the tribe had at least one question with them. We learned that most of us failed to ask common-sense questions or left them unanswered. The major factors behind them are fantasies where many of our questions were suppressed, beliefs where we accept them blindly, habits without the exact knowledge behind that as it is followed commonly, and many more factors like inefficiency or background research about them. The focus of this session is to unlearn first. To make the progress real, unlearning can be done with the help of learning which is harder than learning. Unlearning things can lead us in a different direction. The tribe was asked to follow a regular tracker on our habits through the habit tracker apps or by maintaining a chart. We have to review them once a month and check out which we perform the most and the least. This session was indeed a super new thing among us and following a tracker for our habits was new to many of us. It will be more interesting to review after a month and work on it.
DAY 45 – S60 ALUMNI AND PROJECTS
Our last session of the week was S60 Alumni and Projects by our S60 alumnus Mr. Pranesh and Mr. Subramani. The session was quite interesting as we had a chance to hear about the alumni’s experience. It was surprising to know the myths about S60 and the actual outcomes after Super60. They shared about their bond among the tribe, their best moments, their OutBoundTraining, the strong network with their tribe. Since there is so much difference between the offline S60 and online S60, we found that every mode has its own kind of advantages. And coming to the project part, they shared the idea behind their project and the value addition. The Matrix Club of Kumaraguru, which is a Super60 student initiative, focuses on creating brain game champions that have many events on a regular basis with a strength of 70+ members. Their journey had different steps and experiences. Sprout Kumaraguru, which is Kumaraguru’s passionate peer learning community that has the vision to create a culture of knowledge sharing in Peer-group learning, also to provide structured mentoring to students in both technical and non-technical sides. Sprout Kumaraguru also enhances professional communication which is mandatory through flexible modules. The main features we loved about Sprout Kumaraguru are they provide one-one attention and have a flexible syllabus. This kind of learning mode is indeed the most effective way and their creative planning of identifying and categorizing the learners is something that felt great to us. Their creative and different projects have made us think of new, creative, and unique projects.
