“People do agree, some disagree, but ultimately there is good discussion, which I feel is the very objective of people coming together,” says Prof. R. Janardhan, Pro Vice Chancellor, Dayananda Sagar 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 this New Normal Education Leadership Summit and Awards in Bangalore?
I’ve been associated with ArdorComm Media Group right from its inception, I suppose. I’ve participated in quite a few of your events, and I’m happy that education leaders from all over the country come once in a while and discuss a lot of serious topics which are very relevant to the education industry and to leadership. There’s a lot of frank exchange of points of view. People do agree, some disagree, but ultimately there is good discussion, which I feel is the very objective of people coming together. Knowledgeable people obviously do not simply agree on a certain point of view, and that’s the whole point of conventions and events that you people have been organizing. I wish good luck to whatever you intend to do in the future. Great work so far and good wishes to you in the future.
In these kinds of forums where we bring in education leaders, edtech players, as well as the government, how does this kind of forum benefit the education sector at large?
One benefit is that it offers networking to academic campus leaders across streams and levels. There is a lot of diversity within the campus, where you find different types of specialists. You are bringing people from various campuses with different specializations and asking them to speak on and think about burning issues within a certain domain of knowledge, which is relevant to the community for today and tomorrow. So, that’s one great contribution which you’ve been doing, and you should continue to pursue that path.
Any message for ArdorComm Media Group on its second anniversary?
Yeah, you all are young people, you’re vibrant, and it’s good teamwork that I see here. So, that is something that makes organizations successful.
