  • I am back because Juao's comment moved me. I have recently completed a study on the future of technical education in the Arab world. May be I publish a summary of the study. In agreement with Juao, income per capita in some countries is not proportional to higher education expenditure per capita. Education is not assisting in improving economies. Paradoxically, some countries spend heavily on building, mainly housing, in proportions that are far greater than income per capita. We need not only reform the educational systems, but also the culture of social jealousy

  • Dear professor, even being a Brazilian I was deeply moved by this impressive and convincing study of facts that in many aspects are so familiar to me. Just to mention, yet yesterday (March, 10) one of the greatest national newspapers published a report about our higher educational system. According to a ranking fostered by THE (Times Higher Education), my country is the only one of the BRICs that does not have a 'top’ university among the 100 best institutions of the world. That’s the sad reality: Brazil’s economy has been improved last years, but there’s still a long way to go before people can achieve a better education. Thank you very much for sharing this very instructive presentation... Juão

2011 Mar 07 - Qualitative Changes in Higher Education - SRTM University - Nanded - Maharastra State -[Please download and view to appreciate better the animation aspects]

  1. 1. Q ?
  2. 2. Qualitative Changes in Higher Education ~ with a focus on Values in Education PROF. V. VISWANADHAM
  3. 3. Why talk about Quality ?
  4. 4. The overall scenario of higher education in India does not match with the global Quality standards.
  5. 5. In a competitive world – particularly in the context of globalization only Quality assures greater mobility with better acceptance. And thus, the secret of success is QUALITY . No way, except to compete with the Best and honestly try to become better than the best.
  6. 6. Will the changes – particularly, qualitative changes come about on their own – or, should be consciously initiated ?
  7. 7. It was in 2007
  8. 8. “ Our university system is, in many parts, in a state of disrepair... almost two-third of our universities and 90 per cent of our colleges are rated as below average on quality parameters... I am concerned that in many states university appointments, including that of vice-chancellors, have been politicised and have become subject to caste and communal considerations, there are complaints of favouritism and corruption.” Who said this ?
  9. 9. Our Prime Minister Sri Manmohan Singh
  10. 10. Now it is 2011
  11. 11. Do you feel that things have IMPROVED ?
  12. 12. If not, why not ?
  13. 13. Who is responsible ?
  14. 14. Collectively we all are responsible

  16. 16. Mar 9, 2011 INDIA IS AMONGST THE MOST CORRUPT NATIONS ARE YOU PROUD ? ?????

  18. 18. Mera Bharath Mahan
  19. 19. Arise! Awake!! And stop not till the goal is reached!!!
  20. 20. Patriotism is being quality conscious and being committed to giving quality in everything we think, say and do.
  21. 21. When quantitative expansion is stressed, for whatever reasons, and however justified, Quality is the first thing that suffers. In a country with such diversity, challenges in social fabric, fuelled by political ambitions, with compulsions of coalition politics, no wonder – quality becomes the first to be compromised / sacrificed.
  22. 22. The question is ~ can we afford ? At What price? With what consequences ? What has to be done ? What can be done ? Are we willing to do our bit ?
  23. 23. “ Hidden variables&quot; of education quality E nsuring equal opportunities, stimulating development of positive attitudes, supporting promotion of citizenship values and &quot;human face&quot; of post-industrial knowledge society.
  24. 24. Who are the stakeholders ? The University – The Teachers The Students The Support Staff The Parents The Intellectuals, The Industry The Society in general,
  25. 25. Surely, a lot has been done – and a lot more is in the pipeline. The question is – how serious are we? Why is it we are not, collectively speaking, demonstrating the necessary seriousness ? Why a general slackness has set in? Why the love for quick money? Why the get-rich-quick-at-any-cost attitude gaining ground? Why the degeneration in values? Why the lack of concern for the fellow human being?
  26. 26. ?
  27. 27. How to IMPROVE Quality ? Syllabus must be continuously updated - once in a year, and each year – a list of suggested readings of the latest articles from journals must be provided, to help students easily update their knowledge. With all the technological developments, it would not be difficult to use internet – surely, a low-cost alternative.
  28. 28. How to IMPROVE Quality ? Industry-Institution Interaction to be considerably increased to ensure turning out creative, constructive and employable personnel, with value orientation.
  29. 29. How to IMPROVE Quality ? Emphasis to be laid on Life-long continuous quality learning, as a way of living.
  30. 30. How to IMPROVE Quality ? Semester system must be introduced right from the 10+2 stage, in all disciplines. This would make both the students and the faculty more serious.
  31. 31. Now let us focus On Values in Education

  38. 38. The process of evolution from ignorance to knowledge, from knowledge to wisdom and from wisdom to understanding of consciousness takes place through EDUCATION
  39. 39. EDUCATION is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. It is the spinal cord of the society. In a democratic polity, the sustenance of cultured governance is dependent upon the enlightenment of the population through proper education
  40. 40. QUALITY . . . INSTITUTIONS . . . OF THE SOCIETY . . . CITIZENS . . . EDUCATION . . . TEACHERS

  42. 42. We, the teaching fraternity, has a lot to do - In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be Teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something else, because passing Civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honour and the highest responsibility anyone could have.
