Optimum Learning Environment
One of the key issues in higher education is the prevailing traditional way of teaching in numerous institutions, which is less interactive and more monotonous. Given that, the pedagogy adopted by Roots Collegium is a combination of case study based learning, industry tours and expert teaching where each student is given individual attention. The institution also lays ample significance in developing the interpersonal skills, teamwork, presentation, corporate behaviors of the students through granting them training in Life Skills Lab.
Roots Collegium has always shown the consistency in the efforts to do better. These efforts have aided the institute to become the first ever institute in the State of Telangana to introduce 'Toastmasters International,' which is a world leader in communication and leadership development. This assists to upgrade speaking and leadership skills of a student strengthening their confidence and analytical thinking capability. "We are a proud member of Toastmasters which is highly acclaimed for its unique program. This program boosts our students to not only grab a job easily, but also perform well in their respective areas," shares Padala.

Students are encouraged to attend field trips to numerous industries to develop an idea regarding business market.

"Along with promoting entrepreneurship skills and interactive teaching-learning environment, we can't neglect the importance of innovation in business study. Whether it is planning a business strategy for a company you are working with or preparing a blueprint for your own venture, innovation plays a pivotal role," opines Padala. The distinctly talented faculty members always ponder upon the students to develop ideas which are different from others. The students are asked to prepare PPT presentations, develop prototypes, and undertake case studies related to real-life situations and so on.
Once they are done with their assigned tasks, the faculty members are available 24x7 for the students to evaluate and guide them. The institution has also launched an exclusive Roots application where notices, marks and announcements are made available for the members of the institution.
