Nagpur: The most challenging task before the teachers today are the technology and global changes with which they have to keep pace with. The technological advancements are a challenge before them in the class. Teachers must posses ‘Multi skill Persona’ , said vice-chancellor of Maharashtra National Law University (MNLU) Nagpur Dr Vijender Kumar here on Monday.
Dr Vijender Kumar was speaking as the chief guest at the felicitation programme of best teachers of Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) to students on the occassion of Teacher’s Day at Convocation hall. MLC Prof Jogendra Kawade was the guest of honour. VC Dr SP Kane, pro VC Dr Pramod Yeole and registrar Dr Puran Meshram were prominently present on the dais.
Dr Vijender Kumar further said that in this changing scenario, where students have much more access to knowledge data, the teachers are supposed to know more sources than students and scholars. Similarly, teachers must also know the diversity of the class and should understand problems and difficulties of each student. Teachers should try to remove academic stress and should prepare students beyond thier degrees, opined Kumar.
MLC Jogendra Kawade addressing the gathering said that there is no difference between Mother’s affection and teacher’s affection. People do not know how much hard work teachers put in thier teachings. Similarly, teachers have a huge responsibility to make students good citizens and gentlemen. He further said that commercialisation of education can be stopped only by the initiatives of the teachers.
Dr S P Kane in his presidential address asked the teachers to become ideal teachers for students. He lamented that now it seems like teachers have become service providers and students have become customers, however, this thought should change, said Kane.
