About the Conference

Formal education in present day society is conceived in terms of developmental stages in a hierarchy. The top most level of education is called higher education, as it is concerned with the more advanced phase of human learning. There is a higher expectation on the part of entrants of higher education that they are to be mentally mature and capable to analyze, synthesize and grasp concepts and ideas of all kinds at abstract level. Creative faculties of students are also expected to be developed adequately. The content of courses, methods of interaction, transaction of curriculum and organization of teaching-learning processes are different from that of the school level. Higher education aims at attaining equity, equality and excellence with social justice through knowledge generating processes by way of teaching, research and extension programmes.

Higher education influences all levels of education. It affects every field of human endeavour by providing manpower for production, planning, management and scientific and technological developments. It therefore influences the future of the nation. Thus it becomes more important with regard to its central concern for individual, society and knowledge.

Teaching and research have traditionally been two important dimensions of higher education. Higher education institution, teachers and students are expected to remain critique of the society on matters that concern the daily life of people, their welfare and development. Does it happen in higher education institutions? Do we teachers prepare our student to play the expected role? Do we involve ourselves and our students in quality research? What are the factors that adversely affect teaching and research and in turn the quality higher education? Are the pertinent questions to be addressed?

Keeping the above in view a two days National conference is being organized on the theme: Factors Affecting Teaching & Research and Strategies to Improve Quality in Higher Education
