"The role of a teacher is to create the conditions for the invention rather than provide ready made knowledge" - Seymour Papert.
The above statement is so true, teachers have always been the most critical part of everyone's life. Odisha government realises this and is taking measures to enhance the quality of education especially in colleges. College teachers in Odisha have been asked to improve their own skills in order to produce quality graduates in the state.
"When we are working for quality enhancement in higher education, it should be both in teaching and learning," said state's Higher Education Minister Pradeep Kumar Panigrahy. The minister said this while inaugurating a workshop on 'Quality enhancement in higher education of Odisha' here in Berhampur (Odisha) yesterday.
The Regional Directorate of Education, Berhampur, organised the event. The government has introduced choice-based credit system and vocational education in Plus III, Panigrahy said. Experts in different universities have been entrusted with the task of framing uniform syllabus for Plus III course and these reforms will improve the quality of education, he added.
