TURA, April 6: More than 50 faculty members, comprising principals and NEP/IQAC coordinators from various colleges in the Garo Hills region, came together for a one-day conference centered on the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
The conference, thematised on ‘Higher Education in Meghalaya and Implementation of the New Education Policy (NEP) in Colleges in Garo Hills’, was organised by the Internal Quality Assurance Committee (IQAC), Don Bosco College, Tura, in collaboration with North-Eastern Hill University (NEHU), Shillong.
The conference kicked off with a melodious rendition by the students of the host institution, setting a tone for the intellectually stimulating discussions ahead.
The programme was attended by Don Bosco College principal, Rev. Bivan Rodriques Mukhim; Controller of Examinations, NEHU, Shillong, Prof. Sumarbin Umdor; Campus Director of NEHU, Tura, Prof. Sujata Gurudev; and Associate Professor at the Department of Rural Development and Agricultural Products at NEHU, Tura, Dr. Binu Mathew, among others.
In his address, Rev. Mukhim emphasised the importance of embracing the new NEP 2020, setting the stage for an enriching day of insights and reflections.
Prof. Umdor, on the other hand, delved deep into the intricacies of the NEP during an extensive session, particularly focusing on its implications for higher education in the Garo Hills region, illuminating several key aspects that had previously remained nebulous to the Garo Hills-based educators.
Similarly, Prof. Gurudev highlighted the significant potential of the Northeast, with its rich array of indigenous tribes, to serve as a beacon for the successful implementation of the NEP 2020, owing to its reverence for culture and heritage.
On the other hand, Dr. Mathew provided a comprehensive overview of the NEP 2020, while Dr. Sangma impassioned the audience with a call to embrace change collaboratively, underscoring the imperative of shaping a brighter future not just for students but for all members of society.
