Tertiary teaching in your home country
As many of our enrolled students are from India, we will use that country as an example for this section of the course. However, the same concepts and questions could be applied to any home country.
Like many aspects of social life in India, tertiary education is undergoing rapid change. The infrastructure that did a magnificent job of raising graduate numbers from 200,000 in 1947 to more than 10 million in 2005 is now struggling to keep up with the demand for places, and there are many private establishments opening up. Maintaining the quality of educational institutions can be an issue at times of rapid growth. Read this excellent article written by Nick Clark in 2006 (click here). Do you think much has changed since then? Has your experience of post-secondary education in India met your expectations? If you were in charge of the Department of Higher Education, what would you do differently?
If your home country is not India, use online resources to answer the above questions about your own country's tertiary education system.
