Dr. Kiran Reddy, Founder of AIMS Institutes, Discusses the Role of Digitalization and Skill Development in Education

“Companies are looking for multi-disciplinary skills in students, and the skills we develop in them are critical,” says Dr. Kiran Reddy, Founder of AIMS Institutes in an interview with Pratik Ghosh, Content Writer, ArdorComm Media at the ‘New Normal – Education Leadership Summit & Awards 2023’ #ELSABengaluru #ELSAKarnataka

How are you feeling to witness the New Normal Education Leadership Summit and Awards in Bangalore?

I feel that this is a wonderful event wherein you have touched upon the very relevant topic that we need to concentrate on. The higher education space is changing critically, and there is a drastic change where we need to think about digitalization and taking the help of technology to make students ready for it. The topics revolve around this, and the way you’ve chosen the topics and the panellists are excellent. The outcomes of these panel discussions will help the institutions to think over and go back with a lot of takeaways on how we can move towards digitalization. Companies like Anthology and the digital providers have presented well on how they can help us in creating institutions that embrace digitalization.

What’s your take on skill development and the multi-disciplinary approach in education?

Skill development and a multi-disciplinary approach are something we cannot do away with, especially in the post-pandemic era. Companies are looking for multi-disciplinary skills in students, and the skills we develop in them are critical. Employability is a key focus, and skill development is crucial. Multi-disciplinary education is also important because students need diverse skills that are not limited to a single discipline. For instance, skills like AI (Artificial Intelligence) should be available to not just computer science students but also management graduates who can use them in both their professional and personal lives. So, multi-disciplinarity is essential.

How are you implementing technology in your institution?

We have developed our own modules for admissions and have transitioned to a paperless administration. We use various apps and platforms to connect with students, share assignments, and distribute documents such as certificates and results. We conduct assessments using MCQs, where questions are automatically generated for each student. We are also exploring more integrated solutions, and your event has helped us in understanding who the right partners are for this.

ArdorComm Media Group has recently completed its two-year journey. Any message or wishes for us?

Since its inception, ArdorComm Media Group has been moving in the right direction. Their involvement in the education sector and the way they bring together allied service providers to these events is an excellent initiative. We know that they are one of the best in bringing up these conclaves, summits and events. I wish them all the best and look forward to many more events from them.
