VGU conducts first Startup20x, curriculum conclave;' honored outstanding students
More than 1000 students participated in the 'Achievers Premier League' and all of them were awarded 'Appreciation Certificates and Gold Medals'.
NEW DELHI: Vivekananda Global University (VGU conducted a two-day Curriculum Conclave ‘Saaransh.’ Experts from across the country discussed the NEP, the difficulties in implementing it, and creating a curriculum inline with NEP's objectives in the two days of the conclave.
The entire conclave was split into seven sessions, each of which focused on one or more core NEP areas. These sessions included developing a start-up culture in the university, promoting multidisciplinary core and open elective courses, ensuring quality teaching pedagogy, fine-tuning academic regulations and implementing e-governance, balancing extracurricular and curricular activities, evaluation reforms, industry-led courses, and MOOCs.
Dr Shakeela Shamsu, a former OSD for the NEP at the department of higher education of the government of India, suggested that because the NEP was aspirational in character, there would be some early implementation issues.
“Institutions will gradually understand the ABC...there is a lot of flexibility in the NEP...we need to sensitize the students... the structure of the program must be clear in the mind of the teachers,’’ she remarked.
In another ceremony conducted at the Maharana Pratap Auditorium on its campus, Vivekananda Global University honored students who secured 70% or more marks in their Class 12 grade in the year 2023.
