Need to reduce scarcity of teachers

Kurukshetra: Professor MM Goel, retired from Kurukshetra University, said, “For implementing the New Education Policy 2020, we need to reduce the scarcity of teachers by encouraging shadow teachers out of senior students under the earn while you learn scheme.” He was addressing the online faculty development programme organised by Grand Columbus International School, Faridabad, on the topic, ‘Excellence models for teachers in changing economic scenario post pandemic’. Spiritual enthusiasm is the need of the day to say no to crimes of all kinds in India. The spiritual bankruptcy and commercialisation are the two major causes of the deteriorating standards in education, said Professor Goel.

Workshop on research

Kurukshetra: Prof Karamjeet Singh, Vice-Chancellor of Jagat Guru Nanak Dev Punjab Open University, Patiala, said the research being done in the universities should solve the problems. Every research has two aspects — one the creative or the imaginative part which operates into the human mind. He said while chairing the fourth session of the workshop series on 'Research with R'. He further said it was the skill of the researcher that helped in problem identification, development of research objectives and hypothesis. Research methodology entails a scientific approach to meeting the research objectives. The second part of research is the use of computerised software for developing the big picture through the data collected by a researcher, he said.
