Qualitative Amendments in Curriculum Designing & Delivering with respect to New NAAC

Seminar Date: February 17, 2019

Venue : COLLEGE CAMPUS, OUTSIDE RAIPUR GATE, AHMEDABAD, GUJARAT

 Objective of the Seminar

Certain characteristics that define a graduate should include knowledge, skill, intellectual curiosity, self-motivation, creativity, logical and reasoning power, independent, thought process, dedication, accountability, emotional and mental strength, values- moral, social and spiritual, commitment, civility, patriotism and so on.

The curriculum designed by various universities and higher education institutes must be designed, developed and delivered in such a way that the graduates or post graduates possess these characteristics.

Now the question is that are we able to achieve the desired target. Are we producing the graduates with all these or at least some of these qualities? Do the curriculums designed by various universities serve the purpose? Are we producing socially & morally accountable citizens? Are our curriculums updated as per the demands of the market and the society? Do we find the need to reorient or reorganize the curriculums at both undergraduate and the postgraduate level?

These questions and many more created an urge to have an extensive deliberation on the topic and come up with some suggestions from the college and university teachers, market experts and social experts.

A large number of arts and commerce graduates and post graduates are produced by the colleges and universities in India every year. But still several market reports come to a conclusion that the graduate or post-graduate youth are not up to the market demands and the sociologists derive in their survey that the morals, values, ethics and the accountability towards the nation are rarely found in today’s youth. Isn’t the situation alarming! The question is that should the curriculum offered in the colleges and the universities be directed only towards skill development as per the market demands or should it also be inclusive of the social, moral and ethical values. And if both are the need of the hour, then how should we incorporate both in the curriculum and that too effectively?

The term ‘curriculum’, broadly defined includes goals for student learning (skills, knowledge and attitudes); sequence (the order in which concepts are presented); learners; instructional methods and activities; instructional resources (materials and settings); adjustments to teaching and learning processes, based on experience and evaluation.

To achieve the goals of quality education for all, there is a great need to develop a broadened vision of educational goals, to facilitate holistic approaches, to reorient and reorganize the educational contents and to build the national capacity by developing key competencies required of all the learners.
