Dr. Ravindra Soni
"In the near future, Institutions will offer technical courses with hands-on experience and lab practices with virtual labs and simulation."
"We have realized that there is a gap between what students are taught and what the industry requires- we are trying to bridge that gap"
"Universities will have to massively upgrade their infrastructure and they will have to look at making their classrooms much smarter than what they are currently. "
"Initially online education was thought of as a supplementary kind of education- classroom learning and classroom teaching were considered most important, but now both the modes are running parallelly and will continue to run parallelly in times to come"
Dr. Abhay Jere
"Blended learning is one of the aspects, it has started to happen. I don’t think any University or College is planning to go fully digital- they have adopted blended learning and that will be the way forward. However, now scheduling of things will be different- If we have a class of 60 students currently, we might have to reduce it to 20!"
"It is high time for regulators and Government of India to realise the potential of online learning- and blended learning."
"Just like IAS (Indian Administrative Service), we should have ITS (Indian Teaching Service)- these teachers should guide the rest in creating the top learning institutions in the country!"
V. Ramgopal Rao
"Again, we need the policies in place, we can’t increase our fees by 10 times and generate funds, it is a long term process and requires government attention, so that 10 years down the line we have a robust ecosystem to help institutions flourish"
Dr. Priyank Narayan
"Universities should continuously engage in Industry-Academia Dialogue, as they upgrade and revise their curriculum to address the needs of the markets."
Dr. Shashikala Wanjari
"We also have got the new act of University from Maharashtra Act of University 2016- so if you go through the act, you will find many noble things, in that it is also stated that we have to involve many industry people to enrich our curriculum."
"Today the expectation from an L & D head is not to put a training programme in place but to come out with a business strategy. If I put this in one word, you need to be agile."
"While we train them for domain skills, we find engineers being poor in soft skills too. Actually for soft skills, there is a bigger gap. This is because in the four years of college, there is hardly anything related to soft skills- not just communication but teamwork etc."
"The employer is looking for, because the employer is getting 1000s of candidates, all of them with almost similar background, how do I as an employer filter and say that these are the five people I want to hire."
Dr. Prakash Pradhan
"More than the Universities re-framing their approach, the industry will have to rethink about their involvement in the University matters for the enhancement of the employability of the students"
Dr. S. S. Mantha
"The university must create an environment where the students can interact with their peers outside their institution, today hardly any interaction happens"
