Let's improve our education

Wednesday, June 06, 2018

Education helps to sculpt the future generation and plays a very important role in every society. Therefore education must be revamped to bring out the best in the students. Let’s hear it from the educationists

Renu Nauriyal, College Visiting faculty and Member of Board of Studies, Mumbai University
Technology over these years has had an impact on our faculties and behavior. The perception and mind set of the students' community too has altered. We, as faculty members, are addressing youngsters whose attention span is shrinking and who are looking for instant gratification. It is therefore essential that lectures are designed to keep students constantly engaged. Information is free and easy to avail. The job of a teacher is to inculcate in the students the ability to process  this information critically. Higher education should be a mix of lectures and tutorials. Faculty members should be interacting and coaching students in small groups not exceeding 15. Our education system should also encourage and support activism. It is not enough to know about degradation in our environment. Colleges and educational institutions should enable the students driven movements to work in a sustained way against various types of pollutions etc.

Rumina Rai, Asst. Professor and Course Coordinator, R.D. National College
Mumbai, the city of opportunities offers a wide arena of streams to students. Education is a holistic term wherein a student blooms into a complete individual. Unfortunately today's education system cannot boast of that; though times have improved wherein the student can choose and master his area of interest. Sadly, in the rat race he may lose out on being a 'thinking individual'. Our education system is still exam oriented. There is no time to foster and ignite discussions or motivate students to think ‘out of the box’. Nelson Mandela aptly said, ‘education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’. We must strive for such a gen-next who understand that an investment in knowledge pays the best interest. Our young aspirants should realise that education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.

The education system is not flawed. Although I believe it needs major remodeling. Start with free and compulsory education for females in the rural areas up to grade 10. Schools and colleges, whether rural or urban can start incorporating practically learning over just theory, as many universities do over the globe. It is important to including selective subjects in college for the students to focus more on a particular stream, rather than a general overview of different subjects. We also need staff and faculty who are better trained and equipped with knowledge who can impart knowledge and knowledge based hands on learning to build a keen interest in their students; and to make students to want to question and learn more.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
