Estrade Education Conclave & Awards, 2017 hosted a panel discussion which focused on the Education and Skill Development sectors. This was Estrade’s first conclave on education which brought together stakeholders from government-owned institutions and privately-owned institutions on a common platform. The panel comprised of Robin Banerjee- Author and CEO-MD, Caprihans India, Ratish Tagde- Founder of Insync Channel, Shubika Bilkha- Real Estate Management Institute (REMI), Dr. Bhaskaran Muthusamy- Vice Chancellor, Tamil Nadu Open University (TNOU), Ashok Kumar- MD – Gennex Partners India and Vishwasjeet Singh, Editor-in-Chief – Estrade.in as the Moderator. The discussion brought in the most interesting facts about the education industry such as the viewpoints of leading professionals from various sectors with education and work experience in India, USA, Singapore and other countries. During the panel discussion, everyone agreed on the disparity in the imparting of education in India, the huge potential of the Indian youth, incentivizing the teachers, revamping the curriculum for teacher’s training and incentivizing the new research and creativity amongst the students.
Robin Banerjee, Author and CEO-MD- Caprihans said, “Making our youth skill-ready is only a part of the solution. In fact, inculcating qualities of entrepreneurship, character and ethical behavior are the most important parts of imparting education.” Robin Banerjee, author of latest best seller-Who Cheats and How? Also said, “We do not lack in IQ, but in the imparting of EQ- Emotional Quotient.”
Dr. Bhaskaran Muthusamy, Vice Chancellor- Tamil Nadu Open University (TNOU) pointed out, “Technology is the main disrupter of our educational institutions to reach out to a large section of our youth to impart education, especially to those areas that have poor connectivity and students who cannot afford to travel to a college or vocational institute. For this, TNOU has successfully developed an app which is easily accessible on all smart phones.”
Ratish Tagde, Founder- Insync Channel said, “Our education policy framework must include education of Art, especially Music, which is and has been the core of our educational setup since time immemorial. Such holistic education helps to build students character.”
Vishwasjeet Singh, Editor-in-Chief- Estrade.in summarized the entire discussion and said, “Our educational institutions are yet to tap the full potential of the Education and Skill Development of India’s growing economy. This will have to be an industry-wide effort for not only students, but also teachers who are vital stakeholders when it comes to imparting of education. India has the best of everything. We only require proper planning with a concerted effort.”
