Education systems in many countries including in different states of India are struggling to adapt to the new ideas of knowledge. They have many challenges to address, including more forward-looking policies, administration, developing relevant content, and creating an enabling environment to cater for future needs.
With technology disrupting the way education is delivered, the old methods of learning will slowly becoming redundant and so will the institutes that do not innovate. This is true for the state of Jammu and Kashmir too where there is a need to build a knowledge based economy.
This proposed New University/College by Mehboob Makhdoomi will be a game-changer for students in Jammu and Kashmir by offering students an array of affordable options. This also empowers the students to select the best. I wish him good luck in building an education ecosystem that is flexible, adaptable and forward-looking to facilitate tomorrow’s learning needs of millions.
