Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha launched on Tuesday several key initiatives under the National Education Policy (NEP) which, he said, will equip students with a wide range of skills required for a knowledge society.

Under the policy, several agreements were signed between the government and universities to achieve the desired target.

The NEP will equip students with a wide range of skills required for a knowledge society, Sinha said, adding inter-disciplinary curriculum and multi-disciplinary education are at the heart of the policy to train future innovators and leaders.

Maintaining that Jammu and Kashmir has taken the lead in the implementation of the NEP, Sinha said future higher education and learning will be more dynamic, adaptable and personalised like a liquid learning model platform to seamlessly blend the ideas from different disciplines to prepare students for varied and comprehensive knowledge in a rapidly shifting world.

"Environmental, scientific, technological transformation and globalisation have increased the pace of socio-economic changes. Problem-based learning will make the students familiar with real-world situations and develop thinking and creativity skills," he said.

The lieutenant governor said the recommendations implemented in undergraduate programmes in all colleges from the 2022-23 session will bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical skills, provide resources and choice for research and flexibility in completing degree programmes.

He said schools and the education system must strive to prepare students for the real world and they would require at least six skills- curiosity, critical thinking, adaptability, effective communication, teamwork and collaboration- to become more productive and successful in their chosen career.

He said the National Education Policy has put special emphasis on engagement and involvement in both classrooms as well as field study.

The lieutenant governor launched four portals for digital outreach in higher education, including e-samarth, three-tier feedback and transfers.
