The Commission has invited feedback on the guidelines from universities, students, and all concerned by October 25 on the University Activity Monitoring Portal (UAMP) –

“With the flexibility in selection of subjects and courses, an inclusive pedagogy characterized by the use of multiple modes of delivery, addressing multiple learning styles and learning needs of Divyangjans and students with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLDs), needs to be promoted at all levels of education,” UGC stated.

The Commission iterated that the NEP 2020 emphasizes on equity and inclusion as the cornerstone of all educational decisions to ensure that all students are able to thrive in the education system. “This signifies the inevitability of redefining the curriculum, keeping pace with the liberalisation and globalisation in education to allow the students irrespective of any diversity including students with disabilities with an easy mode of mobility to various educational institutions with the facility of credit transfer,” it added.
