Delhi: Jiva Ayurveda was awarded the National Award by the Chief Minister of Haryana, Hon. Minister Shri Manohar Lal Khattar for its contribution to Innovative Teaching Pedagogy in Higher Education in the Institution category.
Education is considered the backbone of our economy. In today’s context, education becomes even more critical for developing new ways of teaching pedagogy and recognizing the importance of the next generation of creative thinkers and innovators. Many teachers, trainers, professionals and institutions are making efforts in this area, exploring innovative pedagogy in their classes and training sessions. Therefore, to recognize the pedagogy of these professionals and the institutes, Shri Vishwakarma Skill University (SVSU) instituted an award titled “Vishwakarma National Skill Excellence Award for Innovative Teaching Pedagogy in Higher Education”.
The award is institutionalized by SVSU to the participants in three categories: teachers, trainers, and institutions for adopting innovative teaching Pedagogy that focuses on developing skills like critical thinking, problem solving, communication & collaboration, digital compatibility, emotional intelligence, ethics & values among students and trainees. On receiving recognition, Dr Partap Chauhan, Director, Jiva Ayurveda, said, “It is very fulfilling to be recognized for our efforts in the field of innovative teaching pedagogy for Ayurveda doctors. We thank Shri Vishwakarma Skill University for awarding us. This will be a new impetus for our organization to continue our success through innovation and excellence in Ayurvedic healthcare.”
A leader in providing authentic Ayurvedic Treatment and services, Jiva Ayurveda has healed people and changed the lives of over 1.5 million patients across the world through its telemedicine centres and clinics with its uncompromising levels of expertise and unmatched experience of 27 years. Jiva Ayurveda is the world’s largest telemedicine centre that conducts 8,000 consultations every day through telephone and video, providing people cost-effective health service at their doorsteps.
Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Neerja Chauhan, Director – Learning and Development, Jiva Ayurveda, said, “The main problem which the country faces is how to provide the required experience to new BAMS graduates as there are less opportunities available for them to practice authentic Ayurveda. To overcome this problem, we developed our own pedagogical approach covering all aspects of learning in a ‘personalized’ manner through training & learning modules such as Learning Management System (LMS), Quality Audits & Development Feedback (QADF), Credit-based awards & recognitions (Karma), and Simulation-based Protocol System (SBPS).”
“The culture of ‘Bhaav’ (serving with respect and empathy) that is ingrained in the core philosophy of Jiva Ayurveda is being passed on to the doctors via L&D programs which enhances patient satisfaction, which is sacrosanct to us on our mission of ‘Taking Ayurveda to Every Home.” Ms. Neerja added.
Innovative practices and modules like these can be a great contribution to the Ayurveda sector for creating skilled practitioners and taking Ayurveda healthcare to the global level.
