We, Team Current Affairs Review, are presenting in fornt of you a modular course on International Relations (IR). The topic has been explicitly mentioned in General Studies (GS) Mains Paper 2.
Now, one should naturally have a few questions here, like:
(a) Why another modular course?
(b) What would be the approach? How is it different from any other online module?
Let’s answer these questions one by one.
Well, this is not a new section. This section long been a part of General Studies (GS), even under the previous structure (before 2013). By the whether during that time or today, this topic remains equally dynamic. In fact this area is perhaps the most dynamic part of the syllabus. Completely dependent on recent developments.
As a result there is hardly any credible source or proper material for this topic. Even the syllabus given by UPSC is indicative only. We had to go through previous years question papers, to prepare a holistic structure of the course. Now, who would make such a synchronised effort?
And finally, this is not just another course. Here our primary focus is on ‘Student-Teacher interaction’. To cut down on the time and provide flexibility to the students, we have prepared the course material in recorded video format. But simultaneously to provided the much needed guidance, we have created a three layered module of interaction between the ‘Students’ and ‘the faculty’.
In case of any difficulty, the students can comment in the comment section given after every lesson, which will be answered by the faculty only. By the way, on every weekend there would be provision for live class (1 hour) on Zoom, to supplement the effort of the students. Additionally, the students can book appointment with the faculty every week whereby they would be having one-to-one conversation.
For a far detailed understanding, we suggest to go to the enrolment page, where you can also see a demo-lecture video.
