Session 1

Taking higher education to the grassroots

Advantages of teaching/learning in mother tongue

Knowledge is best absorbed in a language that we are most comfortable with. India’s plan is to make local languages the medium of instruction in higher education to encourage the youth obtain higher education and in doing so, improve the nation-wide Gross Enrolment Ratio for higher education. How will India’s higher education landscape respond to this change? Listen to our esteemed panellist share their insights on this, and much more in this session.

Session 2

National Education Policy (NEP)

Having revised after 34 years, National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 proposes quite a few fundamental restructuring in the Indian education framework. With a primary objective of offering holistic education, NEP 2020 focuses on making meaningful amendments in various vectors of education including early childhood care, pedagogy, multidisciplinary education, higher education among many others. After one year of implementation of NEP 2020, where we stand and what’s the way forward — this will be the theme of discussed in this session.
