10.0 Program Pedagogy
NIIT StackRoute Programs are designed to build all round competencies for the job specific roles. The Program Pedagogy is as follows:
The Program is designed to be modular, comprising of multiple courses. Each course typically has multiple sprints. Sprint is the smallest unit of learning (building block) dealing with one or more critical concepts thus making the entire learning process very easy.
A typical sprint consists of 1 contact sessions (referred as Synchronous or Sync session) of 2 hours were the
Followed by an Async or Asynchronous session where the Learner needs to block minimum time of 2 hours per sprint as per the Learner’s convenience towards self-study. During this Async time, Learner must complete and submit the following activities:
The time required to complete the assignments may vary from Learner to Learner depending on their ability, focus and understanding of the concept sessions. The time mentioned for Async Session is only minimum and indicative. The actual time will depend on the Learner.
Additionally, the Learner can avail the Office Hours support to get their doubts clarified. It is very important for the Learners to attend the office hours session and take advantage of the Mentor availability and the doubts clarified for other Learners.
The assignments must be submitted as per the defined process within the sprint schedule for review and feedback. The Learner must walk-through, explain and answer any queries (Debrief), on the approach and the code/solution of the assignments.
Hence, the Learner needs to commit themselves adequate time per sprint (for Sync and Async sessions).
The unique learning cycle (Learn à Practice à Apply à Review à Refactor) helps Learners to learn from knowing and correcting their mistakes.
11.0 Batch Schedule
These programs are offered in part time mode and hence the learners can conveniently plan to do both the University program as well as NIIT program simultaneously.
The batches are scheduled to suit the convenience of the Undergraduate Learners, and hence they are planned in such a way to avoid any clash/overlap with their college hours. The sessions are also spaced out during the week with adequate time given for learning and practice to suit the Learners own pace. Given below is the typical schedule of the batch for illustrative purpose.
5:00 – 7:00 pm
Debrief & Concept
Debrief & Concept
In the above illustration, the Learner after the 2 hours Sync session on Monday, needs to spend 2 hours any time before Wednesday to complete the assignments and submit the same to the Mentor.
Similarly, post Sync session on Thursday, the learner must spend another 2 hours between Friday and Saturday to complete the assignments and submit the same to the Mentor.
Additionally, if the Learner needs any support, can attend the Office hours support as per the schedule announced by the delivery team.
Sunday is a buffer day to refactor and submit any pending assignments to the mentor for evaluation.
Learners should strictly follow this regime and ensure there are no backlogs, to complete the program as per schedule.
Therefore, minimum learning effort required by the learner in a week is 8 hours. This time may vary from learner to learner depending upon their pace of learning and efforts.
12.0 Learning Plan
The Batch follows a defined execution plan, which is referred to as the Learning Plan or batch schedule. The learner is required to refer the Learning Plan from time to time and follow the same to complete the prescribed learning.
The pace of the program is dependent on the number of sprints covered during the week.
While these programs are designed for the UG Learners who are in their final year of their graduation, so as to enable them to complete the same while they are doing graduation, depending on when the Learner is starting the program, the program may stretch beyond the Learner final year of Graduation.
There are two planned breaks during the program, aligned with the learners University exams. The purpose of providing these breaks is to facilitate the learners focusing on university exams as well. While the break points are pre-planned and aligned with the University exams, the break points in the batch schedule will be at different points for different batches.
The complete program is split into 3 parts. The coverage of the contents in each part will vary from batch to batch based on the batch start date. The break dates mentioned below are for illustrative purposes and the dates for every batch will be as per the actual university exam schedule.
1 Dec 2023 – 2 Jan 2024
3 May 2024 – 17 Jun 2024
Part 1 of the Program
BREAK1 for University Semester Exam Break
Part 2 of the Program
BREAK2 for University Final Exam
Part 3 of the Program
While all efforts are made to align the break points with most of the University exam calendar, it may not be practically possible to align the dates with PAN India Universities schedule. If any learner has a problem with the break dates, the same can be discussed with the delivery manager for an alternative solution.
While the Learning Plan is standardized across Batches, the Mentor may decide to include additional Session(s) depending on the profile of the Learners that make up the batch. Such revisions will be updated to the learner during the course of the program.
NIIT reserves the right to change the Learning Plan, anytime during the execution of the Program, in the interest of better education delivery.
Learning plan is an indicative design with an intent to complete all the components of the program. Therefore, the time to complete the Program would depend on the individual Learners participative Interest, involvement, and timely completion of assignments and other activities as per the Program design.
Topic coverage is not from watching videos or attending virtual sessions. It is necessary for the Learner to complete each assignment and any other assigned tasks to acquire skills. Therefore, the actual coverage or learning progress depends on the Learner’s ability to complete all assignments and tasks in the given period. In case the Learner does not spend required time or exhibit casual attitude during the program or does not complete assignments, the Learner will not be able to complete the program on time.
Any implications on EMIs towards the loan repayment or moratorium period due to delay in completion of the program by the Learner will be the Learner’s responsibility only.
Post completion of the Graduation final exam, for part 3, the Learner has an option to complete the program in an accelerated mode subject to availability of the batch. This will help the learner complete the program early, however the learner should be willing to spend more time and all days of the week.
13.0 Medium of Instruction
14.0 Batch Commencement
16.0 Transfer - Batch Change
Learner admission is valid for a specific Program and specific Batch only.
For Undergraduate Final year Learners, as part of the batch schedule, there are 2 planned breaks aligned with the University semester exams. Any other break by the Learner is not recommended. Taking break will also affect their learning due to the gap in the program.
Permitting the Learner to go on break or deferment due to any other reason leads to change of Batch and extension of the admission validity period and hence it is not an automatic process. Any such exceptional break is subject to approval of the Learning and delivery Manager.
In unforeseen circumstances, the Delivery Team can evaluate Learner’s request for a break and recommend accordingly. Learner will be required to send a request with all the necessary supporting documents to the Learning and Delivery Manager (LDM). The request will be reviewed by the LDM, and the decision will be conveyed to the Learner by E-Mail. The LDM’s decision will be final for the approval of break.
Once the request is approved by the LDM, the Learner needs to pay a convenience charge of INR 2000 + GST post which the Learner status will be declared as “On BREAK” and consequently the Learner will not be entitled to attend the sessions of the current Batch.
The maximum period of break cannot exceed 2 months. The deferment approval should be with a defined re-joining date. If the Learner does not resume as per the re-joining date, then the break will become Null & Void. Under such a situation, the admission validity period will automatically expire, and Learner will not be eligible for any further services.
Any further extension of the break period is subject to the approval by the LDM only and it is not automatic.
Learners going on break, will carry the risk of the following and NIIT does not guarantee anything:
Learning Sprint Activities
