The Truth Is, Teachers, Cannot Be Replaced by Tech!

Who needs pen and paper when you’ve got Microsoft Word or Apple iWork, for that matter? Come to think of it, a trip to the bookstore seems pretty cumbersome when you’ve got e-books on Kindle. Similarly, the rush at grocery stores can be avoided with the brilliance of e-commerce websites! Retail, travel, theatre, art, finance, insurance – is it possible to live in the 21st century and not depend on technology in some way, shape or form? When it comes to the education sector, technology has evolved from being a mere facilitator to a complete enabler. Which means, going beyond interactive white boards and electronic ID cards to a fully digital campus with a virtual classroom. And this digital revolution has only been further propelled with the urgency created by the Covid-19 pandemic. Given that higher education institutions in India and abroad are moving towards an online learning model and integrating technology into the very core of their academic and administrative processes, it is fair to wonder what will become of human resources. Is the need for human teachers being eliminated? Is Ed-Tech becoming sophisticated enough to teach children the way teachers do? The answer to both questions is No! Technology is only a form of augmentation. Yes, it can help the process of learning, but it most certainly cannot replace the role of a teacher. Why Technology Cannot Replace Teachers No matter how advanced or smart a computer program is, it cannot and will not replace teachers. A software does not come even close to the knowledge and life experiences a teacher brings to the table. And this has nothing to do with facts, figures or analytics. A teacher leads, guides, facilitates, inspires, empowers and mentors a student beyond theory and sciences. A teacher is a role model who sets a good example and drives students towards a brighter future. Here are some concrete pointers that highlight technology’s shortcomings: It cannot provide soft skills coaching It cannot conduct behavioural assessments Adapting teaching methodologies based on student observations is impossible Technology cannot determine motivational stimuli for students It cannot read the emotional state of students, hence is unable to correct human behaviour Technology cannot inspire learning Technology lacks a sense of humour or wit, qualities that foster learning and interaction Technology cannot provide warm and encouraging feedback, thus hampering student empathy and progress How Technology Can Help Teachers For teachers to stay relevant in a rapidly changing environment, they must be able to prepare students for a world that does employ high-class technology like Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Gamification. Moreover, they must be capable of imbibing in them skills such as communication, collaboration, problem-solving, critical thinking, and entrepreneurialism. The ability to navigate these tools and augment them with human thinking, is what is most needed.   Here’s how technology aids teachers in fulfilling their responsibilities with higher efficacy. Helps teachers simplify administrative tasks like taking attendance, setting grades, and creating study plans Fosters effective and meaningful communication between teachers, students and other stakeholders via interactive chat forums Enables teachers to reinforce and amplify their content through multi-media tools Helps teachers better engage their students in learning through simulations and experiments Fosters teacher guidance to students’ academic achievements through digital resources Motivates teachers to utilise differentiated learning techniques So, while technology has completely changed the game, it is not a substitute for what the teacher has to offer. Even the smartest, most intuitive and responsive platforms are not capable of basic human understanding. And that is because they are NOT human. They are machines. And machines need to be paired with human beings, for the best possible results. While the software makes amazing things happen, it is the teacher who puts things into context, perspective. This is why we are confident in assuming that the role of the teacher is safe – for now at least.

Higher Education Should Meet the Needs of All Stakeholders

At Camu, stakeholder cooperation is a way of life. Yes. By creating an environment of equal opportunity and trust, we create a happy workplace. One that excites, motivates and inspires everyone to work together and do better. For institutions to excel, we must build a foundation of integrity, trust, respect, passion and collaboration. Aka, stakeholder synergy! In this blog, we go over 4 main stakeholder groups in higher education. Here’s what you (as an institution) should be thinking about. Students – From supporting their unique goals and aspirations to gauging their very specific learning curves, higher education institutions must look to adopt a more student-centric approach to instruction, wherein the responsibility of learning falls upon the student itself. Personalised, engaging, competency-based, cross disciplinary, digitally driven! A one-size-fits-all approach must be substituted for a specialised teaching regime, bearing in mind diverse student profiles – rural student, international student, corporate student. Be it course content, assignment styles, in-class activities, or level of technology integration, it is vital for the learner to remain at the centre of all decision making. And this means knowing where they come from, and where they wish to go. After all, it is not merely about what the teacher covers, but more so, about what the student discovers. Parents -It is a fact; Indian parents have tall expectations when it comes to their children’s academic futures. The level of involvement in selecting a university, programme, and even course, is extremely high. Considering the impactful role that they play in a student’s educational graph, it is imperative for higher education institutions to maintain a free-flowing, two-way communication channel with them. Which means updating them about their child’s progress, informing them about day-to-day campus activities, encouraging them to pay visits to teaching faculty, assuaging any/all fears relating to examinations, and more. We are seeing a gradual shift in parent engagement, making this stakeholder group more important than ever. Teaching Faculty -Guider, mentor, facilitator, counsellor – a teacher is expected to perform many roles within and outside the classroom. Gone are the days when material is read out from a text book, and a series of questions follow. Today, a teacher wields a variety of resources, tools and teaching styles to make the classroom (physical and virtual) more interesting and engaging. But in order for them to play their part successfully, they too, must feel supported and motivated. Ensuring that they get adequate training within the domains of technical and human skills is a pre-requisite for a higher education institution. Equally, involving them in the processes of curriculum design and development is a necessity. Collaboration between faculty and management ensures long-term goals are met. Management – There are many leadership positions and administrative ranks within a higher education institution. Think, Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, Deans/Directors, Chairmen/Head of Departments. Given the mandate of teaching, training and research, many heads need to work together to ensure the smooth functioning of a university. While teaching excellence is the norm, it is also important to understand the impact of policy changes such as new assessment requirements on the balance of the academic model. When actions are taken without input from all of those who may be affected, there are dire consequences. Hence, it will take a collaborative approach between senior management and faculty to find a path that works best for all! How do you make sure everyone is on the same page? By encouraging open communication. By practicing transparency from the top. By inculcating empathy and understanding. By creating a sense of community. By leading by example.

Emerging Student Profiles in Higher Education

Gone are the days when a university classroom donned the face of an average 18-year-old, urban, Indian student. Today, a teacher can expect to find a mixed group of learners, from diverse backgrounds and contexts, awaiting instruction. These student profiles have their own set of needs, ambitions and dreams. And higher education institutions must understand what they can do to align their strategies with students’ expectations, as well as the ever-changing dynamics of future industry roles. Simply put, they must be willing and able to revisit their leadership mindset and pedagogical approach, to efficiently on-board and guide the new-age student. Just as the classroom environment is transitioning from physical to virtual, the classroom dynamic is also changing from homogeneous to heterogeneous! Broadly speaking, there are 3 types of student profiles to consider. Let’s look at each one. Rural Students – According to National Education Policy 2020, India’s gross enrolment ratio in higher education is expected to rise to 50% by 2035. Financial aid and open/distance learning opportunities have empowered rural students to aspire for a better tomorrow. As non-urban students fill up more seats, faculty will need to gear up to meet their unique requirements, from numeracy, to literacy, and English language skills. International Students – In 2018, the government of India announced the Study in India programme, and its endeavour to increase the country’s international student population from 47,500 to 200,000. As the classroom becomes more culturally diverse, faculty members must provide academic support as well as pastoral care to help acclimatise each student. Corporate Students – 1- year MBA programmes are growing at a rapid pace, with working professionals diving back into the academic space to upskill and grow their careers. As the learning space becomes more mature and experienced, faculty will have to adapt their teaching methods to incorporate more practical, dialogue based, assignment driven, activities. It is important for higher education institutions to account for cultural, demographic and generational differences in the classroom. A culture of learning, unlearning and relearning must be fostered. How? Through a nimble, agile and flexible academic model. One that allows students to cut across learning disciplines, and juggle theory with real-life work. Achieving Student Centricity Gauging different personalities, experience levels, and learning curves can be more than just a little challenging. But with the right vision and strategy, institutions can create an ecosystem that is inclusive and equitable. Here are 3 disciplines to ponder over. Empathetic Leadership – Institutions must lead with empathy, given the diaspora of student profiles emerging. Emotional intelligence should be applied wherever possible, along with sensitivity, patience and understanding. Interpersonal skills should be ingrained into the educational model. Growth Mindset – Institutions must reward hard work and participation over intelligence. It is through the making of mistakes and the taking of risks, that true learning occurs. Acknowledging various perspectives, opinions, beliefs and thoughts is an integral part of growing. Flexible Practices – Institutions must experiment with different modules of learning. Experiential learning, interdisciplinary learning, and life-long learning are some of the popular methods that universities and colleges have already begun to implement. As you can see, student profiles are changing. And along with it, methods of learning. Education equity means that each student receives what he/she needs to develop his/her full academic and social potential.
