LG gives valuable suggestions for effective implementation NEP

JAMMU: Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha Monday gave his valuable suggestions for effective implementation of National Education Policy in Transforming Higher Education across the Country.
The Lt Governor was speaking at Governors’ Conference on Role of NEP-2020 in Transforming Higher Education which was graced by President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind; Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi and attended by Union Minister for Education, Shri Romesh Pokhriyal; Governors/Lieutenant Governors; Education Ministers of States; Chairman, Committee for Drafting New Education Policy; Vice Chancellors and the Officers of the States.
Underlining the importance of integrated development of children, the Lt Governor suggested that extra-curricular activities such as NSS, NCC, Sports, Music etc. need to be made part of the curriculum and students should get credit of these activities.
Further, the Lt Governor observed that the NEP-2020 could be effectively implemented if institutions are given freedom to redefine teaching positions as per need.
The Lt Governor stressed on the need to lay special emphasis on Students’ feedback on teaching. He said that the Students’ feedback is globally practiced and it helps lend perspective to the teaching of pedagogical standards and practices of universities. Universities may be asked to explain how they have used students’ feedback. If they do not have this practice, they must implement it in a generic manner. The NAAC assessment requires this but universities tend to not implement this seriously, worrying that it can be misused against teachers, he added.
During his address, the Lt Governor observed that our priorities guide all policies and our policy decisions guide our destiny.
He congratulated the Prime Minister and the Government of India for approving the new National Education Policy, which replaced the 34-year-old National Education Policy. He also complimented the Prime Minister for renaming the Ministry of Human Resource Development as the Ministry of Education.
