Research takes a back seat

In recent times, research and academic interactions have taken a beating in universities. Academics are constraint to participate in these activities for austerity that further undermine quality teaching and research. It is quite strange to see that universities wait to seek guise of jubilee celebrations to promote these activities, which otherwise are an integral part of campus life.

Research takes a back seat
Ramesh Chander

In recent times, research and academic interactions have taken a beating in universities. Academics are constraint to participate in these activities for austerity that further undermine quality teaching and research. It is quite strange to see that universities wait to seek guise of jubilee celebrations to promote these activities, which otherwise are an integral part of campus life.

The status of present-day campus research leaves much to be desired. The research quotient of universities is abysmally very low. Ingenious ways to compile required research inputs for promotion under career advancement schemes speak volumes of its content and quality.

Policy research and studies to outline priorities and impact analysis of developmental initiatives are conspicuously absent from the campuses. Political elite and bureaucrats discharge this responsibility, which needs to be supplemented by credible research from academia. Collaborative research in public private partnership should be promoted to improvise in this regard

Research on campuses is constrained by availability of a dedicated and committed faculty. Thanks to consumerism, genres of academic excellence either have superannuated or became indifferent to growing drift of intelligentsia to private enterprise. The teacher selection process is equally responsible for gradual drift in research. Merit, academic attainment and professional competence are to be exclusive parameters of selections in universities. Instead of considering localised and parochial considerations, efforts should be made to promote pluralism, cross-culturism to avoid inbreeding on the campuses.

An inert teacher-taught ambience for obvious reasons tends to eclipse the academics and research. Per se apathy needs immediate attention to break this inertia for harmonious and interactive teaching and learning. It requires re-orientation of course curricula to suit industry requirement and employability. Innovative courses and delivery mechanism need to be conceptualised to promote earning while learning.

It is high time to incubate a culture of academic excellence in universities. For this, multiple initiatives should be integrated for synergic effects to harness and commercialize knowledge for social good. Under the circumstances, a coordinated effort is required to identify core competencies and niche areas for survival and growth of centers of higher learning.

The focus invariably is to reflect truly universal character of universities for students’ intake, curriculum designing and faculty development. The functional autonomy of yesteryears should be restored to enable academia in a manner that the passout students be a hallmark of its brand academics like Oxford and Harvard universities.

The institutes of higher learning lack initiatives for keeping pace with time for library infrastructure to build and maintain sound knowledge base. Due attention to enrich libraries is essentially called for. Subscription to online literature and interconnectivity of libraries on delnet pattern can be of great help. It requires training to library staff to deliver on high expectation and to reorient reading habits among students.

In a globalised economy, foreign collaboration with institutes of higher learning for the faculty-students exchange and dual degree programs will provide much-needed exposure and confidence. This will even cut short gestation gap in the teaching and learning to build a sound knowledge base to hone core competencies.

Today, a larger chunk of resource pie in universities is grabbed by burgeoning non-teaching and non-plan activities. Needed to support and facilitate academics, these activities have grown inexplicably to eclipse productivity. A trimming and restructuring exercise in this regard is the need of the hour to avail larger resource base for academia and research.

Remedial teaching
Amarinder Sandhu

A hot summer afternoon and Ms Anu is teaching English to standard four. Three fans are whirring in the classroom jam packed with 48 students—an everyday scene in any classroom. The teacher is explaining adjectives to the class. She writes sentences on the chalkboard and asks the pupils to identify the adjectives. Pooja and Harman are unable to perform the task. These two students have never been able to clear their classes without grace marks. The teacher has repeated the lesson twice, but the girls still confuse a noun with an adjective. Such students are often called duffers or dullheads.

Students with learning difficulties are commonly viewed as “failures” and are unable to cope with learning experiences that are easily mastered by their age mates.

The school year tends to revolve around examinations and students who cannot master the courses are declared “failures”. A single teacher cannot reach out to all the 48 students in her class. There is a limitation of time and a demand to meet the deadline for completing the syllabus.

What these students need is a little more attention and patience on part of the teacher. While, boarding schools include an extra hour of coaching, elite schools have extra classes for such students. A remedial class is the name given to such coaching. The number of children in the class is limited. The remedial teacher is concerned with this group that is low on self-esteem and attention. Normally schools assign a special teacher for this purpose. Pupils needing extra attention may be called slow learners or low achievers. Students for the remedial classes are chosen on the basis of their scores in the school examination. If the subject teacher feels that a student may benefit from such classes, he may be included in the group.

 The remedial teacher works in close collaboration with the subject teacher so that the students under her charge can be assessed and monitored. The low achievers mostly attend the remedial classes for the entire session and then go back to the normal mainstream educational process. If in the new session, the student is found lagging he is placed back in the remedial class.

The students attending these classes are taught in mainstream classrooms and receive additional support from the remedial teacher. Teaching methods and material are modified to suit the level of the learner.

Remedial classes have been introduced in government schools in Chandigarh under the Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan. Mange Ram, whose daughter Meenakshi studies in Government Model Senior Secondary School Sector 16,Chandigarh was overjoyed to see his daughter clear her English and maths in the half yearly examinations. He is sure she benefited from the remedial classes held everyday.

Meenakshi is chirpier and more talkative in class. She pulls pranks on her classmates and her self-esteem is higher, notes her class teacher. She shares the  “help” given by the remedial teacher with her friends.

Let not the subject teachers label a child a “failure” if he is unable to clear his class tests. A little bit of remedial teaching can do wonders and prove that the pupil is not a duffer after all.

CAMPUS Notes
Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar

Punjabi course

A 21-day refresher course on "Punjabi language, literature, culture and folklore: contemporary concerns", organised by the Academic Staff College at Guru Nanak Dev University concluded here recently.

Joginder Singh Puar, former vice-chancellor, Punjabi University, Patiala, said teachers should be committed to their subjects. He said the teachers should understand the new challenges and try to resolve problems.

Karnail Singh, former registrar of the university, stressed on the role of teachers in promoting the Punjabi language. He highlighted the importance of teaching Punjabi at the school level. At least 20 scholars delivered lectures as resource persons, followed by a dialogue and discussion. At least 29 teachers from colleges and universities participated in the course.

Documenting culture

Folk traditions constitute the primordial, inexhaustible reservoirs of the total culture of a community. It is from these reservoirs that creative forms of literature, music and dance, theatre, cinema, performing arts and advertising draw their life.

Surjit Singh Lee, former head, Human Language Department, Punjabi University, Patiala, said this while delivering the keynote address at a national seminar on "Folklore and study of folklore" organised by Guru Nanak Dev University.

Stressing on the need for documentation of traditions of Punjab, he said multinational corporations had been exploiting material and land to generate more markets, leading to displacement of people. Jai Rup Singh, vice-chancellor, invited suggestions from scholars for strengthening the Punjabi language and exhorted scholars to come forward to make the language simple.

Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar
Pest management

The Department of Entomology at Haryana Agricultural University (HAU) here organised an advanced training course on "Application of ecological methods for managements of crop pests" recently.

Addressing the valedictory function, Dr D.C.Gupta, Dean, College of Agriculture, said the complexity of agro-eco system needed to be understood in a better way for sustainable agricultural development.

Stressing the importance of ecological methods in the management of crop pests, he observed that the use of pesticides needed to be reduced to save the environment. Dr J.P.Bhanot, Professor and Head-cum-Director, CAS, briefed the gathering about various activities being carried out at the department.
