A two-day national seminar on ‘Higher Education in India was organized by the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC). The program was held in collaboration with Rotary Club of Doomdooma on Monday and Tuesday at the conference hall of Doomdooma College.
The topic mainly focussed on current trends with special reference to Northeast India.
The seminar was inaugurated by Professor Ranjit Tamuli, Vice-Chancellor of Dibrugarh University (DU). He said on the event that although a number of changes had been brought into the system, yet higher education misses the true target.
After the introduction of semester system in both graduate and postgraduate level, Credit-Based Choice System (CBCS) had been introduced in postgraduate level only. So private universities had been motivated by the government, besides opting for open and distance learning (ODL) mode in both graduate and postgraduate levels.
Besides, he appreciated Rotary Club of Doomdooma for taking up literacy programme under Rotary India Literacy Mission (RILM) wherein they took Mathematics and Science teaching programme for the school students under its global grant project called ‘Aviskar’.
Mr Ranjit also quoted that, elementary education was the pillar of higher education. Hence, it needs a much more focussed approach towards the learning outcomes.
