About Deep Delve
BMU Deep Delve courses are designed and delivered by academics and scholar-practitioners of repute from all over the world. Deep Delve is a catalog of selected online short courses that allow the learner to choose their unique bouquet of learning. The courses oﬀer insights into cutting-edge, topical themes, and aim to nurture critical thinking and discourse using a variety of interactive learning methods.
While Deep Delve courses are principally designed for the needs of executives with the idea of career advancement in mind, these are open to anyone who wishes to learn, irrespective of experience or industry. Therefore, there are no formal pre-requisites to register for Deep Delve courses except perhaps curiosity, the desire to expand one’s knowledge, and actively participate in the sessions. Each course will follow a blended learning model of synchronous and asynchronous teaching and will typically consist of one to two classes per week, for a total of 15 to 20 hours.
The themes can be wide-ranging and creative: from navigating or implementing digital landscapes, environmental science, investigating leadership styles, communicating with diﬀerent cultures, perfecting legal writing, the intersection of law and ethics, or even assessing the spiritual quotient in the workplace. Deep Delve online courses are designed for users to gain knowledge from leading international experts in an interactive learning format. These short courses are individually designed and diﬀer from MOOCs in that there is a richly interactive, e-classroom experience with live engagement from experts, including class discussions, class polls, and tutorials (through chat rooms). To ensure that learners gain the maximum advantage of the course, the batch size will not be more than 25. Deep Delve courses also aim to open the door to peer-to-peer learning too through class discussions and a robust exchange of ideas for practical implementation based on shared experiences. In this sense, the teaching is largely facilitated and experiential and inspires the learner, in contrast with the traditional stand-up lecture mode.
Learners who attend 85% of the course will receive a certiﬁcate of attendance, while those who complete the course, including the passing of e.g. assignments/quizzes as per course description, will receive a certiﬁcate of completion from BML Munjal University. The latter will also be awarded access to the BMU library for three months as a special beneﬁt for their achievement.
