Students need a critical view on subject - JV Prabhakara Rao
Prof. Prabhakara Rao addressing the gathering

Principal, College of Arts & Commerce, Andhra University Prof. JV Prabhakara Rao addressed the gathering at the inaugural program of the Seminar cum Workshop on Teaching, Learning and Evaluation at GITAM.

Prof. Prabhakara Rao, having put over 3 decades in teaching and consultancy served as the Dean of Student Affairs at the Andhra University. He guided more then 25 PhD students and over 10 MPhil students. He co-ordinated over 15 seminars.

Speaking at the program, he said the responsibility is more on the student than on the teacher in a classroom context. He advised the students to answer the questions in the examination but to question the answers in the classroom. He told students to have a critical view of the subject and think why certain thing is like this and not like the other way.

College Infrastructure is a key element

Speaking at the program, he said the responsibility is more on the student than on the teacher in a classroom context. He advised the students to answer the questions in the examination but to question the answers in the classroom. He told students to have a critical view of the subject and think why certain thing is like this and not like the other way.

Prof. Prabhakara Rao said he was surprised when he heard few years ago why GITAM says it needs more time to grow to a deemed university status when it already has the needful. He said that the performance of the College of Management Studies (CMS) is excellence and hence the Andhra University has identified it as a research centre for PhD and MPhil programs.

Only 10% of students opt for Higher Education in India compared to 15-30% students in China. He said that the numbers are over 50% in developed nations. Higher Educational Institutions require huge infrastructure in the form of buildings, facilities, laboratories, libraries etc. and constantly have a problem in properly balancing cash inflows with providing infrastructure.

Another challenge for higher education is the lack of qualified qualitative teachers. He said that the satisfaction rates of teachers are gradually decreasing. Teachers, today, are poorly motivated and teaching an option when there are no career opportunities left. He asked Educational institutions to take steps to motivate their teaching staff. Higher salaries, at least comparable with other professions will help.

Internationalization of Indian Education

Speaking on Internationalization of Indian Education, he said that Indian Universities are today more open to foreign students on one side while going abroad by way of franchising, offering distance education courses for abroad students and starting centres abroad such as BITS Pilani and BITS Ranchi who recently started their centres in the Middle East.

Indian Higher Education is growing slow, but has great opportunities because of its viability, he said. He hoped banks will be more liberal in offering loans for students who go for Higher Education.
