There is one thing we recognize by instinct: The world has changed from what it was 20 years ago but education in India hasn’t changed all that much.
While curriculum has largely remained static, its application has become increasingly dynamic. Today we have industries reliant on mobile technologies, augmented reality, vibrant online communities, renewable energy and drone technology. However, educational content, assessment and certification processes have lagged behind the relentless advances in technology.
Today, we stare at the hard reality – we have under invested in education for employability. Where do we find professional skills and vocational programs linked to a university degree? The answer is not difficult to seek.
