Prof N R Madhava Menon inaugurated a two-day national workshop on ‘Equipping new era practitioners: teaching, learning and evaluation’, sponsored by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, here on Thursday.

Menon spoke on the need for quality improvement in the higher education sector.

He said it is of utmost importance for students and teachers to be co-partners in the process of education.

Pointing at the drawbacks of the present assessment system, he said it resists change which, in turn, obstructs and discourages innovation to attain excellence to its full potential.

When quality improvement is the objective, the first priority should be teachers, and not the infrastructure, he said.The workshop aims at equipping teachers with the new teaching, learning and evaluation methods in the context of the digital era and technological advancements.

Debasis Chatterjee, Director, IIM-Kozhikode, who delivered the keynote address emphasised on the need to focus on value-based education. Sister Teresa, principal of St Teresa’s College and Tessy Anthony C, internal quality assurance cell coordinator of the college, were also present.
