Classroom without Walls


Today in the business institute classroom, it is still common to see familiar textbooks from a decade ago, along with teacher-focused transmissive teaching styles with students seated, books open, waiting for the knowledge to arrive. Teaching and learning can become inherently spontaneous and student-centered when moved from the confines of the classroom into the world at large. From the collaborative learning atmosphere that results from the unique relationships developed outside the classroom, to the deep learning that occurs when students must put into practice “in the real world” what they have theorized about from behind a desk, field experiences are unmatched in their learning potential out of classroom experiences early in a student’s career can be formative and can inspire students to continue in a field. Modern learning is better than the traditional one it does not only focuses on classroom learning but gives more emphasis on outside and practical learning which makes students more successful and competitive.

Learning outside the classroom is about raising achievement through an organized, powerful approach to learning in which direct experience is of prime importance. This is not only about what we learn but importantly how and where we learn. The present study made significant contribution to the literature of out of class involvement in education. To our knowledge, no review study has been conducted to integrate the findings of out of class involvement. This study confirmed that out of class activities have positive influence on student development in institutes. Student participation is related to student and institutional characteristics. These findings have important implication for practice and future research. In order to effectively prepare students for a competitive workforce, the faculty and advisors should encourage students to be actively involved in both formal and informal learning.
