Seminar examines need for a global edge to higher education

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

Practical training during the course of taking a degree, strong industry connect and the need to remove the association of “skilling up” with labour in order to bring it into mainstream education – these were the traits that panel experts more or less agreed upon during a seminar on the need for a global edge to media studies, held at St Pauls Institute of Communication Education on Tuesday.

Among those who spoke were Carol Andrade, veteran journalist and Dean of the Institute, Mahrukh Inayat, roving editor with Headlines Today, and Dr Pratibha Jain, managing director of Eduabroad. More than 100 students from several city colleges attended.

Carol Andrade spoke of the way the demand for college education had grown steadily since Independence, and had virtually exploded since liberation in the mid-nineties, with more than 8 million students on the roles of more than 8,000 colleges in 261 universities.
