Shashi Tharoor attends Jamia Hamdard Founder's Day 2021

Dr. Shashi Tharoor Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha, and the former Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations was the chief guest for the event who gave a detailed lecture and enlightened on the topic, ‘The Idea of a University: Higher Education in Post Pandemic India.’

Tharoor shed light regarding the transformation of educational institutions from a window of knowledge to a window to the labour market which is currently a hot topic. The National Education Policy emphasises the importance of such a change. The pandemic should only be viewed as a catalyst for the changes that are already taking place. Many things that were considered eccentric changes before Covid-19 may now be required. Using cell phones during class, for example, would have irritated professors in the pre-covid era.

In addition, the open book examination system will become commonplace. In the post-covid age, there will be an unstoppable flood of digital technology into education; in a way, education will become a digital colony. As a result, using digital tools to locate knowledge might become as crucial as having the intellectual ability to study and analyse content and approach learning critically. While there will be a slew of micro-level adjustments, we must predict the ones that will have the most impact on the system as a whole.

Furthermore, the celebration of Founder’s Day also witnessed the presence of Chancellor Hamid Ahmed, who is an entrepreneur, edu-preneur and a philanthropist. Padmashri Prof. Iqbal S Hasnain a renowned glaciologist and Pro-Chancellor of Jamia Hamdard co-presided over the deliberations.
