Dr. N. R. Bhanumurth, Vice Chancellor, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar School of Economics University, Highlights Significance of Education 4.0 and Digital Innovation

We are talking about Education 4.0, where the education sector needs to adapt to the emerging challenges, especially coming from digital innovation,” says Dr. N. R. Bhanumurth, Vice Chancellor, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar School of Economics University, 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?

Yeah, this is very interesting, I would say. It’s very timely, where this whole Summit is integrating users and producers of Education technology, and some of the best practices have been highlighted throughout the day. I’m sure the title of this Summit, “New Normal,” is certainly a new normal in the education sector. We are talking about Education 4.0, where the education sector needs to adapt to the emerging challenges, especially coming from digital innovation. At the same time, bridging the gap between supply and demand in the industry, where the necessary skills required for employability of students become a major factor going forward. Especially when we talk about India becoming one of the developed countries, I think the education sector is going to play a very major role, and this Summit is certainly a big contributor to making India a place for the education sector, not only for Indian students but also for attracting more students from abroad.

How are you implementing technology in your institution?

I’m from a public sector university, and we have synergized our curriculum where the National Education Policy suggests that we can have up to 40% digital learning. We started implementing it slowly and are trying to implement whatever flexibility is available in the National Education policy. We are one of the early universities to implement digital education for our students and make it customized for each student, which gives a lot of flexibility. At the same time, we’re seeing students using resources available on digital platforms. The progress in the Indian education sector has increased inclusivity for all students, but there’s still a long way to go, and some segments still exclude students. That’s where the sector needs to play a major role going forward.

Any message or wishes for ArdorComm Media Group, which has recently completed 2 years of its existence?

I would say that you are doing a great service to the nation, particularly in bringing together users and producers. My suggestion is that it’s important to equally focus on the public sector. You will play a major role and contribute significantly to the nation. India has been at the forefront of bringing digital public infrastructure, not just for our nation but for the whole world. The aim of ArdorComm Media should be to have inclusivity in terms of getting more public institutions. The long-term game lies in the public sector, in my view. The private sector is short-term, but the long-term game lies in public sector.
