An in­ter­ac­tive ed­u­ca­tion prac­tice will be im­ple­mented in all Cen­tral and deemed uni­ver­si­ties and tech­ni­cal col­leges in the coun­try, stated All In­dia Coun­cil for Tech­ni­cal Ed­u­ca­tion chair­man Dr Anil Sa­hasrabudhe, while ad­dress­ing a gath­er­ing of vice-chan­cel­lors at the Na­tional In­sti­tute of Nu­tri­tion (NIN) on Sun­day.

Dr Sa­hasrabudhe said, “We are go­ing to have fac­ulty train­ing pro­gramme on a con­tin­u­ous ba­sis as stu­dents now have var­i­ous sources of getting in­for­ma­tion. Hence, the prac­tice of a study plan, in IITs, will be im­ple­mented across all uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges. It will be an in­ter­ac­tive ap­proach where the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the stu­dents is im­por­tant.”

Var­i­ous col­leges from across the na­tion raised a lot of queries as the big­gest chal­lenge for them is man­ag­ing the fac­ulty ra­tio vis-a-vis stu­dents.

Many col­leges do not have per­ma­nent fac­ulty and man­age with con­tract lec­tur­ers, which has re­duced qual­ity of the ed­u­ca­tion.

Re­cruit­ment of fac­ulty is a ma­jor con­cern and un­til that is done, the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion is go­ing to be a chal­lenge.

New meth­ods were also in­tro­spected, but dur­ing the gath­er­ing it was also pointed out that the qual­ity of stu­dents too will have to be checked at var­i­ous lev­els for be­ing in­dus­try ef­fi­cient.
