    UBA-SRMIST hosts virtual webinar on NEP 2020


    SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kattankulathur under its Unnat Bharath Abhiyan (UBA) flagship organized a webinar on New Education Policy 2020 on 21 September 2020. Vice Chancellor of SRMIST Dr.Sandeep Sancheti delivered the keynote address on the new education policy. Over 1000 students, faculty members, UBA-SRMIST adopted villages, and other academia and industry have participated in this sensitized program.

    Dr. V. Thirumurugan, Nodal Officer, UBA-SRMIST, and the Associate Director (campus life) welcomed all, and Dr.R.Senthil, Associate Professor, Mechanical narrated the profile details of the speaker Dr.Sandeep Sancheti.

    In his speech Dr.Sandeep Sancheti explained all the features of the new education policy, it’s outcome, and how it benefits the country as a whole. He briefed the overarching vision and comprehensive framework of NEP 2020 for both school and higher education. Further, he detailed the impact of NEP2020 as a new regulator proposed for higher education with separate verticals for regulation, standard-setting, accreditation, and funding.

    He said that the NEP2020 would absorb arts and science, technical and teacher knowledge into its fold, replace several existing regulatory bodies, and ensure a level playing field for public and private players.
    He added this new educational policy is mainly student-centric and highly flexible. For students, the most meaningful change may be introducing four-year undergraduate degrees, with options for entry and exit at various stages, a credit transfer system, and abolishing the M Phil program.

    He insisted that the target for policy to transform the education system is about 15-20 years. The National Testing Agency will introduce a pilot version of the common entrance test, used for admission to all Institute of Eminences (IoEs) and central universities in 2021. Some Indian Institutes of Technology are developing the Academic Credit Bank's technical structure, which will also be established and become applicable to all new students joining central universities next year.

    The keynote address mainly focused on the roadmap to achieve the GER 50% in the next 15 years. The resource person discussed the challenges of implementation aspects and the merits of the NEP 2020.
