Higher Education Sector - Curriculum Development..

There is a need for starting of interdisciplinary and integrated courses
Jan. 23, 2012 - PRLog -- There is a need for starting of interdisciplinary and integrated courses at
under graduate and post- graduate levels with flexibility in choice of
Courses and a system of credits that enable horizontal and vertical
mobility/transfers for teachers. These courses need to be started in both
science and social science streams and must be offered by the
Departments of the Central Universities. Colleges should also be
involved in curriculum development.
• The curricula should be revamped to reflect the need for national
development with international benchmark.
• Creativity of teachers, research fellows, students and external experts
should be harnessed in order to develop multimedia teaching material.

Education should build ethics in individuals and capital for the nation. The current system is mainly focusing on producing bureaucrats for governments, science graduates for foreign universities, engineers for foreign companies, and highly paid managers for MNCs. So what is required to be done is work in these areas so that the system builds citizens who build wealth for the nation.    
    In the past few years, we have witnessed a rise in enrolment at all the stages of education, a decline in dropout rates, a move towards gender parity, a substantial increase in the number of teachers in all types of institutions and a considerable expansion in the number and spread of educational institutions. However, a lot needs to be done to bring in large number of people who are left behind due to various reasons.    
    There will have to be a thrust towards ‘Education for All’, along with a marked improvement in the access and quality of secondary and higher education. This assumes greater significance in the context of the ever-increasing demand for education, the opening up of the economy and the emergence of our nation as a major economic superpower. The momentum gathered in the preceding decade is to be continued with higher allocations to different sectors so that the goals are achieved. All this underlines the need for a quantum jump in the financial allocations for secondary and higher education which we intend to facilitate.
