Institutions can now consciously develop contributors on a large scale
Building a contributor entails changes at three levels.
At the fundamental level, it requires the individual to re-examine his/her fundamental axioms of life. Example: What does success mean to me? What is my attitude to success and failure?
At the personal practice level, the individual has to adopt supporting practices. Example: Contributors practise “trust commitments” by setting clear expectations, and meeting them.
At the domain application level, the individual must visualize his/her contributions in various role contexts. Examples: contributor teacher, contributor salesman, etc.
This comprehensive vision of contributorship has been crystallized by Illumine – a knowledge enablement lab – into a rigorous and methodologically sound, scalable pedagogical model. The model has four pillars:
- A curriculum framework which has translated the contributor vision into 48 specific “thinking shifts”
- A learning methodology that enables “discovery learning” in large classroom scenarios, across multiple teachers / cultural contexts
- A digital platform that enables scaling of rich-content based “vision discovery” to large number of students, each at their own pace
- A delivery audit framework that enables systematic intervention management, and integrity of effectiveness of delivery
