I am a panelist at a FICCI event in a session with this theme. I have 5 minutes to make my initial comments and then there would be discussions.
This is what I propose to share in my 5 minutes.
My inputs at FICCI:
The hexagon of challenges to higher education:
The challenge of numbers
The challenge of relevance
The challenge of Quality
The challenge of access
The challenge of costs
The challenge of speed
The pentagon of disruptive solutions:
Big Classroom: Evolution of MOOC to create a model of simultaneously teaching on-site and off-site learners, using synchronous and a-synchronous reacher learner interactions.
CCL: Collaborative and co-operative learning
ISL: inculcating self-learning : where/when there is no teacher
Educational Measurements, Learning Metrics and Learner Analytics
Personalisation of learning
The quadrilateral of technological tools for teaching-learning:
Search and Curation tools for appropriate learning resources with a suitable taxonomy
Content creation and presentation tools
Interaction and engagement tools to support the teaching-learning process
Intelligent assessment tools for diagnostics, feedback and determining learning pathways
The trinity of skills to be developed for future learners:
The ability to learn something completely new in a short period of time; including the skill to figure out what a learner can learn auto-didactically, where Internet based resources would suffice and when a master class is needed.
The commitment to be able to change habits quickly.
The ability to change mind-sets: typically change from a status quo mindset to a growth mindset.
The critical duo in the process:
The single most important element of the education process:
Asking the right questions?
