Today is “Teachers’ Day! Let us go back to our previous blog, i.e. Blog No. 20, in which we shared a few measures (Fixes & Facilitators) to ensure that the Industry (“Disciple”) continues to leverage the Engineering Institutions (“Teacher”) for shaping itself as well as continues to pay “Gurudakshina” in terms of passing on its learning to its “Teacher” for the later to remain updated and, in this process, rendering itself “unforgettable” to its “Teacher”!
Let us list out the facilitators again for an easy reference:
(i) Industry working with Academia on Technical Developments for meeting “below-the-horizon” requirements.
(ii) Academia working with Industry to gather inputs periodically to update their curriculum to enhance the career prospects of the pass-outs.
(iii) Creating panels of experts in various domains with membership from both Academia and Industry.
(iv) Creating low-cost easy access to the resources supported by a periodically-updated database of strengths of the Engineering Institutes.
(v) Introducing regulations to ensure that the above, i.e. iv, is implemented.
(vi) Creating forums and platforms for encouraging all the elements of the ecosystem to meet and interact periodically.
(vii) Creating a pool of experts to review the ecosystem status periodically, and share the input on what need to be sustained and what need to be initiated.
As you can see, there is a need to look at the whole support ecosystem (“infiDOF Ecosystem”) in an integrated way, especially Industry and Engineering Institutions in the context of this blog. We need to create frameworks, probably, several of them. Let us wait, before we start working on it, till we analyze – establishing a support ecosystem ready, keen, and organized to support “anything and everything”, and ensuring a professional framework which will keep every engineering brain in the best of spirit to be contributing till “heart feeds the brain with oxygen” (Please refer our Blog No. 14, exactly a month back, i.e. on the 5th August 2014.).
