In a first-of-its-kind initiative involving senior faculty of quality management education in the country, Dr. Ganesh N Prabhu, Professor of Strategy at IIM Bangalore, has published a unique courseflow on the Nodes platform (app.ednodes.com), which will enable new business school faculty to teach, for the first time, a course on New Product Development, a course that he has been teaching at IIM Bangalore.
Prof. Ganesh Prabhu specialises in designing and teaching courses on product innovation, strategic management, and entrepreneurship.
The courseflow application has complete information on every aspect of teaching the new course such as the course outline, overview of teaching objectives, session wise topics with preparatory notes, multiple case options for every topic, classroom slides, video lectures, video case links as well as typical examination questions and project grading methods. The courseflow can be accessed by web browsers on any type of device. Faculty members can modify their courseflow view privately to their own teaching style and institutional grading requirements. A discussion forum within the application enables faculty members to share their course experience and faculty can guide those who are teaching the course elsewhere.
