Dr Sandeep Sancheti, the Vice Chancellor of SRM Institute of Science and Technology addressed 3600 educators from the Higher Education across the Country through an online webinar “SkyCampus” organized by ICT Academy
On his address he stated that, Change is the essential element of life. Certainty is not there but attempt has to be there for a sustainable growth. With reference to education, there should be more focus on research and experiential learning. By rise of digital interventions, there will be developments in virtual labs, webinars, etc. In our present day education system, the internships were still not up to the mark and project based learning has to develop.
He also endorsed the term “Driving Dozens” referring to the technology for the future. 3D Printing, 5G, Cloud, Biometric eye tracking, Text to speech and vice versa are some of those. He concluded with the fact that the obstacle for change is our own inertia and we should be more open to change.
