The Learning Curve: Is Education Through Experience Important ?

The Learning Curve

Turning the rusty pages of human development, one cannot overlook the importance of learning and failing via experiences. Every civilization educates society in one of two ways: religiously or scientifically. However, without the transmission of information, humanity would have perished a long time ago. Our educational system entered the scene after realizing the significance of such a special procedure. Doctors, priests, and teachers were recently seen as honorable and selfless professionals. This purity has been kept for years in the teaching profession.

The three professionals

Over time, new courses, branches, and manipulating components entered the scene. In India, three degrees are regarded as professional degrees, with which you may obtain a license to practice and an abbreviation to go with your name. This includes doctors, architects, and lawyers. This vividly expresses the weight of duty that an architect bears throughout his or her profession.

According to the Third Place Theory, home is a fixed point on one’s journey. It does not mean that architects are only allowed to create houses. A place is designed by an architect, and its label is assigned by the user based on its intended function. Therefore, in reality, the Architect is directly connected to each living human on this planet who uses some or another place as shelter or workspace, or sacred. This connection must be respected and appreciated by both parties with their active participation throughout. 

Such great responsibility necessitates preparation and hard effort. With so many altering and expanding academic patterns nowadays, institutions have devolved into disarray with a hefty monetary expense. Students must participate in extracurricular activities that include contacts and experiences. They are exposed to the world not just around them, but also to the farthest reaches of the universe, which may both challenge and teach them an important lesson.

One who is book clever may not be able to cut to the chase, while one who is street-smart will always find a way out. This elementary information must be instilled in youngsters at an early age as part of their molding journey.

Quality or Quantity of Education?

Breaking down the barriers to learning will certainly improve the learning level, but will it assist to sustain the quality with each slot going out? The train does a U-turn when the quality and quantity stations intersect. This one turn determines the entire course to take. Today’s educational system is at the crossroads of making decisions and, regrettably, returning to the ride to take the opposite direction and repeat. The process is locked in this never-ending cycle of possibilities and experiments, which eventually leads to the passing batch value estimation.

The epidemic hit the world hard when people were fleeing. Not only have people and assets been lost, but the degradation in quality has harmed a whole generation. Architecture has always been a synthesis of science and art. This fantastic journey included people of a specific caliber and curiosity. However, when the train turned onto the quantity route, we left the quality stop behind.

Losses of the evolution

Architecture studios were not only held horizontally but also fostered vertical contact. According to the experiences of a few students who graduated 10/12 years ago, student interaction was a necessary and unwritten rule. The first-semester student was learning and witnessing the thesis student’s work. And, finally, truly contribute to the outcomes that not only have an influence on the learning curve but also point out the limitations in the appropriate direction.

Competition has long been an important component of the curriculum. Undergoing these possibilities with the skilled will result in a once-in-a-lifetime experience. These elements are critical in the enhancement of replies, the value of decision-making, and the sensible design course.

The removal of these elements, as well as the burden of other influencing factors, is throwing pupils off course. This must be given due consideration in the future. Including the college student council, discussing the political scope with students, as well as cultural and sporting activities to push their sportsmanship spirit, and team building teachings must aid them all the way through. However, teachers are also responsible for examining individual students and directing their strengths in the proper direction. Students go through all forms, functions, meals, and failure loops for five years, but it only makes them stronger and ready to tackle greater obstacles in the future.

One’s that we lost on the way

In the current scenario, at least 30% of each graduating Architectural student changes their complete path in the profession for a variety of reasons. Lack of suitable prospects, loss of enthusiasm in practice, and inability to fund the course. Money has evolved into a power source, propelling the wheel of that train, causing it to take the quantity turn and benefit itself through multiplication.

Following the traces of politics, corruption, and reservation concerns, but stressing the outcome that needs to be reconsidered. When one adds multiple additional pieces to the origin, the links with the older portions are always weakened. Those who are connected already must stay in contact till the end through any bond or knot, this responsibility has to be taken seriously to set good examples for the coming batches. 

Reality hit

After the internship experience, most of the students realize the work system and the order of discipline in the sector. Interaction with other co-workers and colleagues students get aware of the upcoming trends and demands of the future. As well a slight idea about the pay range and the capacity to earn a ration is understood. Few join back the same firm in which they have worked before but most of them either change office or just take another course of action. 

Transition in place

Architecture must be looked at with freedom and respect, where a single human has the skills with abilities to shape the entire skyline of a nation. This powerful tool is passed on for generations with great care and discipline. This grand tradition must be followed for eternity. Becoming part of the process with patience and pride, it is our responsibility to pass this on in the purest form. Externally affecting factors cannot be removed but can be manipulated to achieve the desired outcome. 

Let’s translate this learning chaos into a knowledge fair.
