2 Objective ► Education makes human able to visualize the universe like a mirror. ► School education is essential like our nutrients & oxygen, but higher education should be more objective. ► Higher education policy is to be framed in a country keeping in mind The demand of the nation  The direction of progress of human civilization The global socio-economic changes with time The optimum utilization of natural resources To acquire knowledge for new inventions and discoveries. UGC & AICTE Skill Development Workshop 2014, New Delhi

3 Present Status ► ‘Primary education for all’ campaign has gained momentum and free education at secondary and higher secondary level is being practiced for several decades - these are the encouraging features of our society. ► Recent provision of Right to Education (RTE) Act for free and compulsory education to children will strengthen the process. ► But the education in general courses at graduate and post- graduate level is aimless in our system without any definite goal for the taught vis-à-vis the nation. ► More attention is needed for education policy to be reformed to make higher education in general courses meaningful with a goal. UGC & AICTE Skill Development Workshop 2014, New Delhi

4 Societal Requirements ► Though the basic purpose of education is to enlighten the society with all the facts and figures around us, but it must also cater to the needs of the society. ► Education in general courses should not always be oriented to the generation of teachers/secretaries/officers/clerks only, must be aimed also in designing the persons for other spheres. ► The society demands one, but the institutes produce another, making the process less fruitful. UGC & AICTE Skill Development Workshop 2014, New Delhi

5 SKILL DEVELOPMENT ► The course curriculum needs to be more skill oriented at the higher education level keeping in mind the societal requirements. ► The vast human resource engaged in education of general courses at graduate level is actually being transformed mostly into useless ‘knowledge-bin’, not utilized for national growth. ► Establishment of Community College / Extension of potential departments of the existing college for the purpose may be explored. ► In everyday life we are deficient of professionals whom we actually need, though the society is being ornamented with graduates, post-graduates and even doctorates.
