“Stu­dents must iden­tify their in­ner self”

India Today - - NEW DELHI -

Di­nesh Singh, vice chan­cel­lor, Univer­sity of Delhi, voices con­cerns over the im­por­tance and re­quire­ment of tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion in ed­u­ca­tion and the next phase of im­ple­men­ta­tion of the se­mes­ter sys­tem at the univer­sity. Q. Where has Univer­sity of Delhi reached in terms of in­no­va­tion? A. The new pro­gramme in the Clus­ter In­no­va­tion Cen­tre on cam­pus will be in­ter-dis­ci­plinary, hands on and high end. We are blend­ing the three fea­tures to­gether. Also, the MOU with Kash­mir Univer­sity and Is­lamic Univer­sity of Sci­ence will en­sure stu­dents get a taste of video con­fer­enc­ing. Q. What is the next step in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of se­mes­ter sys­tem? A. The se­mes­ter sys­tem our de­sire, our duty and am­bi­tion. In this higher ver­sion, stu­dents will learn through ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing and two, the bound­aries that ex­ist be­tween dis­ci­plines will be taken away. So for in­stance, an English lit­er­a­ture stu­dent has the op­por­tu­nity to study a lit­tle bit of may be San­skrit or may be even com­puter sci­ence. I want to add both, In­ter­dis­ci­plinar­ity and hands on ex­pe­ri­ence dur­ing the next phase of im­ple­men­ta­tion of the se­mes­ter sys­tem. Q. What can aspi­rants learn and take from the univer­sity? A. They will find some of In­dia’s most en­thu­si­as­tic and bright stu­dents and a very con­ge­nial study environment.
