Date :: 29th December, 2018,

Call for Papers and Delegates for National Seminar on
“Reforming Teaching-Learning and Evaluation in Collegiate Education”

and General Body Meeting of FEGOCTA,
29th December, 2018, Imphal Hotel, Imphal

Organized by
Federation of Government College Teachers’ Associations, Manipur (FEGOCTA)
in collaboration with Y.K. College, Wangjing, Lilong Haoreibi College, Lilong
D.M. College of Arts, Imphal and D.M. College of Science, Imphal.

Education is a continuous collective activity among students, teachers, parents and the other stakeholders including political and administrative leadership who decide education policy. The priority on quality and inclusive collegiate education indicate the condition of education, development, social cohesion and stability of a nation. In India inadequate infrastructures, inability to recruit required teachers, failure to have effective teaching-learning activities, lack of ICT facilities and increasing non-academic interferences on the functioning of the colleges characterize collegiate education. Education is not able to meet the changing demands of the society, development of the nation and global standards.

In Manipur failure to implement the national policies of UGC, NAAC and RUSA, absence of higher education policy, inability to maintain teacher-students ratio and failure to enforce attendance rules characterize collegiate education. Neglect of education and inability to establish higher secondary schools by the state government after delinking Pre-university courses (Class XI and XII) from the colleges in the 1990s led to mushrooming of private schools. The potholes in school education system include elitist character, obsession with marks and toppers system and lack of focus on knowledge, innovation and moral values.

Such features of school education and disturbing social and political environment in the state have deep impact on collegiate education. The most visible is ineffective teaching-learning and evaluation. The college students are deprived of basic necessities and are left out from the national and global competition. The college teachers are demoralized and feel discriminated due to disturbing working and service conditions including failure to provide even the complete salary. Academic activities are frequently disturbed due to political and other factors.

There is a collective failure of all the stakeholders and society on collegiate education. The tragedy is the blame games go on and teachers are the soft targets. The huge expenditure due to increasing exodus of the students outside Manipur to pursue collegiate education has been the consequences. A collegiate education system which focuses on knowledge, innovation and contributes to progressive social change, development and stable environment is necessity in the competitive globalized era.

For this an objective understanding of the disturbing and declining trends in collegiate education and unfavorable socio-political environment is first necessary. A National Seminar with inter-disciplinary approach is organized on the theme of “Reforming Teaching-Learning and Evaluation in Collegiate Education”. The Seminar will focus on innovative strategies for effective teaching-learning and evaluation in collegiate education by bringing together policy makers, academicians, researchers, different stakeholders and those who have experience in the collegiate education.
