India, US join hands to create quality academics
Institutes in India and the US will join hands to create a pool of trained mid-career academicians, so they could be groomed into potential leaders as part of a long-term objective to strengthen the Indian educational structure.
The Penn State’s Center for the Study of Higher Education (CSHE), in association with Rutgers University and Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in Mumbai, will host an Indian Higher Education Academy at Penn State in 2013 to specifically address the needs of Indian higher education and build academic leaders.
‘Europe meets India’ through schools
Students of Pawar Public School (PPS) in Bhandup participated in Eumind (Europe meets India) this year. Eumind is an educational and cultural programme which aims to bring the students of our nation closer to the West.
During the summer vacation of May 2012, a team comprising 10 students from the school, along with the Principal Dr. Phadke, headed for the Netherlands as part of this programme. The students stayed with the Dutch students in their homes and got a flavour of the Dutch lifestyle and food habits. Students of PPS attended lectures at the Vechtdal College, Ommen and interacted with the students and teachers over there.
