Chanakya Research trails the age old tradition of crafting a relationship between the teacher and the taught. The guide who takes up the research project of a scholar acts as a mentor and takes full responsibility of making the scholar learn the various aspects of the subject they intend to specialize in. The mentors become point of contact for answering any questions related to the project and for troubleshooting, at any given point of time.
Taking on the role of a mentor is tough, as it extends beyond the classroom. As a counselor, the mentor provides advice on all facets of research work. Your mentors at Chanakya Research will guide you with the technical aspects of research, suggest the most relevant reference material and help you with the writing task. Statistical problems are taken up by experienced PhD statisticians, who solve each query with patience and expertise. Even when you are under stress and feel pressurized about deadlines, you can talk to the mentors and who would counsel you and find answers to all your problems and suggest time saving ways to finish the research.
The mentoring pedagogy that is followed at Chanakya research is based upon the blended learning technique, which enables the scholar to consistently participate in the research process. At the commencement of this process, the student provides inputs and specifies his needs to the guides. The mentor notes the needs regarding the topic selection, research issue and questions, formatting standards followed by the university, the word length and the deadline. He allocates a writer and an editor, who is closest to the domain of the research and have expertise in the field.
The mentor and mentee work together to make the project a success. Communication is carried out through online media. Virtual meetings and web conferences are held from time to time through platforms like GoToMeeting. Online chat sessions and video chats between the mentor and the mentee complement emails and telephonic conversations. The mentor coordinates with the student on a regular basis, taking feedbacks for the most effective result.
The feedback that the student provides after completion of a section of work is used for making enhancements. The mentor is the link between the student and subject matter experts, who are working on the project, and conveys all concerns expressed by the student to them on time. He gives updates about the progress of work to the student. Having a mentor at the master's or PhD level proves to be a boon as there are a lot of things to be handled and the mentor can relieve you of the stress of writing and presenting a thesis/ dissertation.
