New Delhi, January 24, 2019 — The National Institute of Educational Planning and Administration (NIEPA) is organizing a two-day Workshop on Leadership Development in Higher Education for Vice-Chancellors from 24th January to 25th January 2019 in New Delhi. Union Minister for Human Resource Development, Prakash Javadekar, inaugurated the workshop. The workshop will focus on strategies to improve quality education through the sharing of ideas, experiences, case studies, and action plans at institutional and national levels. It will have a particular focus on the role of Academic Leaders in creating incentive system and capacity development of teachers and nurturing a work environment in institutions of higher education.

While addressing the Vice Chancellors, the Minister said that the country has put tremendous faith in us. To meet the expectations, we must have the vision to shape the future of higher education and facilitate institutional transformation. He said our future action plan should focus on improving quality education, developing infrastructure, promoting research environment, and increasing use of technology to take our institutions to the next higher level.

The Minister advised all the Vice Chancellors that as the leaders of their institutions, they must involve all the stakeholders — teachers, administration and students — in any decision making process. He stressed upon the need for the teachers to build a bond with the students to ensure their all-round development. Mr. Javadekar said that there is a need to deliberate upon ways to strengthen the faculty and enhance their competency in dealing with the changed social and technological context of teaching and learning. We need to understand the ways of developing teaching and research skills along with curriculum planning and assessment practices. He said Vice Chancellors should, through this workshop, share their rich experiences and ethical practices.
