Indian higher education faces many challenges

Indian higher education has many challenges of expansion, excellence, equity, empowerment and evolution, Union Public Service Commission Chairman Dr D P Agrawal said.


Delivering the convocation address of Rani Channamma University here, Agrawal also said the biggest challenge to be faced by educationists in the coming years would be the availability of quality faculty at all levels and more so at senior levels.

Agarwal was conferred honorary doctorate of science on the occasion.

Speaking on the teaching profession, he said quality teachers cannot be created in a day but it takes more than a decade of work to put into mould someone into a quality teacher.

He cited three reasons on the areas of primary concern in respect of quality teaching as attention to quality teaching as an institutional policy, impact of quality teaching on research and institutional culture and combination of approaches to enhance quality teaching in a sustainable way within the institution.
