CONTENT, TEACHING & REQUIREMENT CONNECT
The connect between content, teaching and the requirements is broadly missing in large number of professional colleges in the country. While the industry and world is moving at an breathtaking pace, generally forced by technology, the academic fraternity is caught in its own cauldron. The complacency seen in most of the technical institutions gives us a feeling that they would tide over this phase, which in reality is here to stay.
The curriculum does not get connected to the content; the goals professed is not followed by the content. Who decides the quality of the content and it’s being aligned to the curriculum. The basic audit itself is conspicuously missing in the academic world. Content of whatever quality has to be brought of life by the teaching fraternity. Skepticism prevails. It is left to everybody’s imagination whether is sacred task is performed in our classrooms.
The pedagogy decides the deliverables to a considerable extent, where but for gloss, nothing great seems to have changed, despite vast changes all around. Pedagogy is not even talked about, the outdated standard conventional methods continue and innovation in pedagogy to meet the requirements of the day, will take a long time even to get initiated.
The requirements have no interface with the professional institutions and so they are at loss. But, the capabilities to make amends and create a academic assembly line to suit the present day industry requirements which is dynamic and ever changing, is also in question. The seamless integration of the academic output & and professional intake can do wonders to both. The changes can keep happening in an iterative manner and slowly the system would come to stay.
THE SEAMLESS CONNECT BETWEEN CONTENT, TEACHING & REQUIREMENTS CAN TRANSFORM THE INDUSTRY.
