By Pti

Mumbai, February 9: Observing that institutions of higher education in Maharashtra are stuck in "mediocrity and complacency", state Governor C Vidyasagar Rao has called for innovative curriculum and participatory teaching.

"We have witnessed globalisation in trade and commerce during the last two decades. But we are yet to see the benefits of globalisation in the field of higher education, particularly in teaching and research," Rao said.
