Learning by doing has always been an effective approach to education, and CFAL’s PU College takes this mantra to heart. In a recent experiment on observing cheek cells under the microscope, students at CFAL had the opportunity to not only witness the wonders of biology but also actively engage in the learning process. Led by the enthusiastic biology faculty, Deeksha, the students embarked on a journey of discovery in the well-equipped biology lab at CFAL. This hands-on experience allowed them to interact, ask questions, and gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter.
As the experiment commenced, a buzz of excitement filled the air as students eagerly gathered around the microscopes. The hands-on nature of the activity sparked their curiosity, and they soon found themselves engrossed in their observations. Deeksha, with her expertise and patience, guided them through the process, explaining the significance of each step and encouraging questions. The students embraced the opportunity, firing inquiries one after another, eagerly seeking answers. This interactive environment fostered a spirit of collaboration, with students discussing their findings, sharing insights, and collectively expanding their knowledge.
The experiential learning approach adopted by CFAL lies at the core of its success. Students are encouraged to actively participate in their education, moving beyond rote memorization to develop critical thinking skills. By immersing themselves in practical experiments like this one, students gain a firsthand understanding of the concepts taught in class. CFAL’s commitment to providing well-equipped laboratories ensures that students have the necessary resources to explore and engage with their subjects in a meaningful way.
Practical learning holds immense importance in the modern world, where theoretical knowledge alone often falls short. Through hands-on experiences, students not only deepen their understanding of concepts but also develop essential skills such as problem-solving, analytical thinking, and effective communication. Practical learning encourages students to think independently, fostering a sense of curiosity and a desire for exploration. It also prepares them for real-world challenges, equipping them with the skills and confidence needed to excel in their chosen fields.
The experiment on cheek cell observation at CFAL’s PU College showcased the power of practical learning. By actively engaging with the subject matter, students experienced firsthand the wonders of biology and cultivated a deeper appreciation for the world around them.
CFAL’s commitment to experiential learning ensures that students are equipped with the necessary tools and resources to thrive in an ever-evolving world. As we continue to recognize the importance of practical learning, let us embrace opportunities that empower students to learn by doing, fostering a generation of lifelong learners ready to make a meaningful impact.
