Website Udhyam Learning Foundation

ENABLING YOUNG LEARNERS TO BE THE CEO OF THEIR OWN LIVES. We are nurturing the next generation through entrepreneurial mindsets and 21st century skills, so that they can take control of their own destinies and create their own futures.

Curriculum testing overview:

This vertical at Shiksha observes curriculum implementation closely to assess feasibility and quality of our design(How students and teachers are interacting with the lesson plans and learning journey) and operations. We collect data from observations, FGDs and interviews to see if the Curriculum design is meeting student learning outcomes. Learning and insights from this exercise enables design, operations and M&E teams to get deep into classrooms and understand learner/teacher experience better, reflect on what’s working, gaps in the implementation and run improvement based experiments. When Quality is the vision, there is no substitute to detail orientation and rigor and that’s exactly what we are trying to set up through this vertical.

We hope to not just improve the quality of our programs through our methods but also create knowledge and share our experiences with everyone who cares deeply about quality at scale.
