PEDAGOGY

Ganga Yatra – A Journey of Self Discovery follows a pedagogy which derives its principles from the two very significant models of learning and transformation; Conscious Full Spectrum & Experiential Learning. The objective of using these frameworks is to source and activate the inner wisdom of an explorer through an enriching experience to bring a paradigm shift in the education process.

CONSCIOUS FULL SPECTRUM RESPONSE MODEL

The Conscious Full-Spectrum response is a unique response approach created by Dr. Monica Sharma. The approach is based on extensive experience in the application of various methods for tangible results for people’s development worldwide. This meta-frame is designed, simultaneously in time, to solve problems and generate measurable results, transform systems that perpetuate these problems, & create new patterns sourced from individuals’ inner capacity & Transformational leadership. This work plays a critical role in redefining ‘Development’ encompassing our inner and outer worlds, both as individuals and groups, so as to source the far reaches of the human and cultural capabilities to address the challenges we face.

System Shifts
    For Ganga: From a river to inspiration for the future generation.
    For Students: From career, driven approach to enable students to discover their inner calling full potential and core values.
    For Teachers: From class room teachers to become learners, facilitators and mentors.
    For Partners: From give and take relationship to collaborators for creating harmony.
    For Institutions/schools who are joining: From critical & limited approach to inculcate value based education and facilitate Integral and Transformational Learning for future generation.

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

Learning by doing is a well-known model in education. Kolb's Experiential Learning Theory (Kolb, 1984) defines experiential learning as "the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience. Knowledge results from the combination of grasping and transforming experience.
The theory presents a cycle of four elements:
1. Concrete Experience
2. Reflective Observation
3. Abstract Conceptualization
4. Active Experimentation
