Daffodil International University e-talk: Role of Academia Making Student Life-Ready
Daffodil International University, Bangladesh hosts e-talk on 'Role of Academia making Student life-Ready'
A virtual talk show titled "Role of Academia making Student life-Ready" was hosted by Daffodil International University in collaboration with the World Academy of Art and Science (WAAS) & Association of the Universities of Asia and the Pacific (AUAP) on September 22, 2020. The program was simultaneously LIVE from the university's Facebook page and Campus TV.
Professor Alberto Zucconi, Chairman of the Board, World Academy of Art and Science; Dr. Pornchai Mongkhonvanit, President, SIAM University, Thailand; Dr. Andy Pusca, Rector, Danubius University of Galati, Romania; M. Chandrasekaran, Senior Project Manager, Social Science Research, The Mother's Service Society, India and Dr. Md. Sabur Khan, Founder & Chairman, Board of Trustees, Daffodil International University were the resource persons of the e-talk show.
Dr. Md. Sabur Khan said that one of the core responsibilities of educational institutions is to prepare students for the future.Due to technological changes the ways people interact, socialize, and work are shifting rapidly. The current corona crisis brings extensive change to our life and job. It makes us believe that we should rethink the role of academia in the face of new normal. Besides making tech-ready & job- ready educational institutions must put effort to make students life-ready, he added. He also stressed that Educational institutions must create a culture that ensures their students are healthy and safe (both physically and emotionally), engaged, supported, and challenged so that they can develop essential life skills to cope up with unforeseen situations & changes.
Professor Alberto Zucconi said, the university is an open space where students can discover and develop their skills. The teachers help them in this work. As a result, the future life of a student is formed by the combination of students and teachers. He added that the job of the university is to prepare the students for the future life. It is very important that the main responsibility of the university is to see if the students are able to make their life by developing their skills.
Dr. Pornchai Mongkhonvanit said that the world of the 21st century has completely changed. We need to prepare students to adapt to this changing world. The role of the university is not only to teach books, but also to impart knowledge that is useful in real life.
Mentioning the experience of his organization, Dr. Andy Pusca said, “We’ve been teaching through online at our institution for about ten years. So in this pandemic situation our students did not face any problem taking online class. This is how we prepare our students for the future. We think it is the job of the university to prepare students for the future.
Abstract: In this society, we all have a general idea about academia being related to working life which ultimately shapes our future. But in reality academia in society is considered to be similar to the role of positive emotions in people. It enhances a positive mindset amongst people which promotes development of your personal skills. In this pandemic situation the world is facing a growing economic crisis. It will haunt us for years if we don't enhance the repertoire of possible actions of a system and integrate these possibilities in a comprehensible way.
