CEO, Ryan Group of Institutions
The Indian education system is one of the largest systems in the world. It caters to the need of more than 190 million students of different socioeconomic backgrounds in pre-primary to primary, upper primary, secondary and higher secondary to college and university level. Though rapidly improving, India still has a long way to go. To provide our students with the talents necessary to compete in this marketplace, we must recognise and accept the challenges before us today.
Ryan way is defined as KASSM — Knowledge, Attitude, Skills, Social and Morals. Values with sound knowledge and the wisdom to use it constructively is what provides the differential factor to our students at Ryan.
Teachers are no longer the only source of knowledge. We have moved on from teaching to facilitating. Teaching today in India is not what it used to be. There is a fundamental change in the way teaching works today. Teaching is about enabling learning from a conceptual point and its application in real life. The methods of imparting knowledge are no longer confined to a chalk and board but have extended to advanced technology and virtual learning. The gap between students and teachers has narrowed giving learning a totally new perspective. The need of the hour is to build the social infrastructure of the country, hence people should give more importance to academia, healthcare, education while other career options could be mass media, finance, legal and compliance and arts.
There is a wide gap between what is taught in schools or colleges and what is actually required in the real world. This gap needs to be closed and institutes should only focus on imparting relevant education. In other words pedagogy and the tools for pedagogy both have to be reviewed from time to time.
