ABOUT THE SEMINAR
Higher Education envisages the creation of a knowledge based society thereby stimulating competitiveness, cooperation, meritocracy and productivity for a progressive and humane social order. It strives to achieve quality standards by nurturing dynamic citizens who are socially and ethically responsible for taking India in particular & global in general to glorious heights.
The expansion in the field of education in the recent past has been the result of projected demand for trained professionals in various sectors such as engineering, environment, pharmacy, healthcare, tourism and futuristic courses in the changing global scenario. In spite of the diversity and various complexities, our education system has successfully grown by finding viable solutions for challenges in the field of education. The renowned scholars, academicians, professionals and management & administrators of our country have constantly worked for its improvement by formulating sound policies from time to time. In view of various quality parameters, emphasis has generally been laid on improvement of the system through regular revision of syllabi with international dimensions, world-class infrastructure, accessibility of learning opportunities for all the sections of society, interdisciplinary research, collaborations with industry and international institutes, use of ICT in teaching-learning, credit-based system, semester system, open distance learning, support services, decentralization, accountability, transparency etc. Despite the figures and claims for the increasing number of higher education institutions (HEIs), growing enrollment, increased budgetary allocations etc., top rankings for our HEIs at the international level have been eluding which might be indicative of failures and deviations in our attempt.
We are also aware of the efforts of National Assessment and Accreditation Council for regulatory measures towards improving quality education in the country. All the HEIs have been working towards meeting the standards set for this purpose. For institutionalizing various quality parameters, the role of faculty is considered to be of paramount importance. In this regard, exchange of ideas through seminars and conferences at the Regional, National &International level has been constantly advocated and has been found to be highly fruitful.
The IQAC of the college endeavors to provide a conducive environment to our students so as to create an academic atmosphere which encourages originality, creativity, and innovative ability in the young minds. Efforts are afoot to make the institution a hub of excellence in the academic and co-curricular sphere, thereby institutionalizing a culture of openness, transparency and meritocracy in the campus.With this in view the Internal Quality Assurance Cell of Trisha P.G.
