This was a half day working session for faculty development done recently at SJBIT, Bangalore. Objective is to introduce innovation and initiate action for set up a structure for developing student ideas.
Do you want this?Do you want your student tobecome a glorified clerk?Do you want your student totake up low paying,mundane job with a badboss till retirement?Do you want your student tosearch for a fulfilling job formore than 2 years?
or this?Do you want your student to be thinkingcreative everyday at work?Do you want your student to be dedicated todeveloping his/her own ideas?Do you want your student to create newvalue and create jobs for many?

Dennis MeadowsUniversal versus Global ProblemsIt’s useful to differentiate problems into two categories, which I calluniversal or global. Universal problems affect everybody, but theycan be dealt with locally. Not only you can do it, but you personallycapture a lot of the benefits. Lakes have been cleaned up, rivershave been cleaned up, forests have been regenerated and so forth.Global problems affect everybody but they can only be solvedthrough global action. Climate change, the proliferation of nuclearweapons, the spread of really virulent viruses, global energydepletion – these are global problems. Looking back, I think it’s safeto say that there are quite a few examples of success with universalproblems [but] when we looked at the global problems, the only onewe found was dealing with ozone depletion.
