In the event, jointly organised by the International Skill Development Corporation (ISDC) and ‘Bridge India’, more than 200 educational experts and representatives of educational institutions from many countries including Australia, and New Zealand were present, as per the release.
While explaining the NEP, Mr Narayan said, “It is true that effective implementation of NEP needs huge resources.
However, it does not mean, that nothing can be achieved with the existing resources. It is possible to increase the quality of the teaching-learning process by restructuring the available resources and appropriate intervention of technology.”
“Imparting skills, entrepreneurship, and hands-on learning for students were being emphasised. Researchers, industries, and academia have been brought together to draft the student-centric education system and pedagogy.
The new education system aims to thrive by giving importance to local languages even as it aspires to make students globally competitive,” Mr Narayan added.
