About the Book


 

Change is a difference in a state of affairs with reference to various things or a different context. To change or to be a change that is always a perennial question in everyone's life at almost every stage. Nations are also not different. Higher education in India has always been an experimentation; either from the policymakers or from the stakeholders. Think of any change and we are always reminded of the adage that says change is the only constant in this world. The idea of the Grand Academic Portal has also started first to change ourselves and also to be a change maker in the various fields of higher education in India. When we seek any change it has to be both- within and outside, to get the Holistic approach. To get a change in interpersonal and community narrative in the higher education, we need to look at it from five different dimensions - the classroom, the institution, the community, the nation, and the world. Higher Education in India is going through a sea-change since a decade. But as it is observed, the change is not happening organically or systematically. There are many haphazard and temporary decisions taken by the policymakers over the year which has created a lot of chaos in the field of Higher Education. This book is a humble effort to assimilate different areas of Change in Higher Education.
