A Peer Learning Experience Like No Other

The YIF cohort is rich in demographic diversity. Fellows come from different geographies, varied education disciplines and socio-economic backgrounds. Many of them excel in extracurricular activities and avocations, and have won accolades in their areas of expertise. A substantial percentage of the cohort also has work experience. With excellent academic support, infrastructure and resources, the Fellowship becomes a platform for the Fellows to share knowledge. The following points broadly describe the rationale of supporting peer learning at the YIF ‚Äď

The real feeling of Fellowship ‚Äď A structured approach to the peer learning process gives Fellows a chance to collaborate effectively. In sync with the broad principles of the YIF ‚Äď providing a holistic learning experience, and nurturing leadership, creativity and empathy, it also reinforces the idea that learning is not confined only to the classroom and the faculty.

Learning new things ‚Äď Since the Fellows have different skill-sets, they can enrich their learning experience by sharing knowledge. Thus, peer learning gives a chance to the Fellows to learn new things in an informal setting.¬†

Need based sessions ‚Äď These sessions cater to specific learning needs of the Fellows – academic, professional and extracurricular. Skill-based workshops are conducted by qualified peers.

Experience of teaching ‚Äď Fellows get a chance to sharpen their skill-sets and communication. It also helps them evaluate their own expertise and add value to their curriculum vitae. Certificates are awarded to the Fellows conducting the sessions.
