The Digital Learning Council’s mission is to advise the design and development of an overall digital learning strategy to amplify the University’s mission and impact in liberal and management education for societal upgradation in the digital era.

The Council supports the Centre for Digital Learning in the development, delivery, evaluation of digital learning resources to students, faculty, staff, professionals, organization or institutions and lifelong learners. The Council assists to establish standards of effective and innovative materials and content that supports learner-centric pedagogy. The Council advises on circulation and distribution of learning materials and content to meet the needs of external stakeholders and of the society. 



We work with faculty and instructors to design, curate, and create engaging online or blended content for learners. We encourage collaboration among faculty of different disciplines and departments and produce content that helps promote interdisciplinary problem solving, critical thinking, and creativity, the key essence of liberal education.


We work with academic departments to design, curate and create online/blended certifications on important interdisciplinary topics in the society and intersections of arts, cultural, humanities, life skills, businesses and professional development to promote lifelong learning.


We work with faculty and instructors to explore digital mediums, such as games or simulations, to be designed and to build to provide immersive and innovative learning experiences.

The idea of FLAME began in 2009 to provide liberal education, a multi-disciplinary, holistic approach which puts students at the centre of the learning process. FLAME’s educational philosophy encourages students to explore interests, acquire and connect knowledge beyond the boundaries of disciplines, and develop an understanding of life and society in context. This fresh approach to education offers an alternative to the traditional education model of overly emphasis on speciality, profession-based education.

Small size classes, close interaction between students and faculty, open and collaborative learning are characteristics that have made FLAME unique and the destination for students and faculty.

Learning and Sharing have been at the core since FLAME’s inception. The institution is conceptualized with a desire to give something back to society. Sharing of “Gyan” or knowledge dissemination is the ultimate goal for all human beings is the accumulation of knowledge. Guru-Shishya Parampara is part of the campus life experience at FLAME.

Faculty impart knowledge through mentoring, focusing on dialogue, questioning, and formulating new concepts. Today learning and sharing take place beyond formal settings and exist during interactions among faculty, students, administrative staff, all members of the community. How can it uphold such strengths as a liberal education in the digital era?

In the digital era, the context of liberal education may be changing, but its essential purpose -  to maximize individual potential, growth, and responsibilities of citizenship to society - is not. Digital learning at FLAME is about empowering all to learn and to teach digitally. 


Digital Learning at FLAME

During the pandemic, the institutions were confronted with the challenges of teaching and learning online. Forming a Digital Learning Taskforce with dedicated faculty members and committed support from the leaders, FLAME managed emergency online teaching and learning smoothly. Positive responses came from students and faculty when they discovered new approaches, with the help of technology and digital tools, to curate incredible teaching and learning experiences together. The coronavirus has forced the change of looking at learning through new lenses.

What did we do to support learners during pandemic?
