ACADEMIA INDUSTRY DIALOGUE
Agenda Setting for the Academy and Identifying Research Priority Area
9-10, April 2021 (Chaitra 27-28, 2077)

Rethinking on educational programs, instructional pedagogy, and research in the Far Western Province

Organized by Ghodaghodi Multiple Campus with the Assistance of UGC Nepal and Ghodaghodi Municipality

 

Brief Introduction to the Program, Objectives and Relevancy

Higher education must help set agenda not just for the future but for the living time as well. Educational institution must get feedback from the industry for which it produces the manpower. Ghodaghodi Multiple Campus, RMC Research Committee plans to set an intensive dialogue between renowned academic personalities and established personalities in their enterprise or in the profession. This is the venture intended for the reciprocal benefit of academia and industry. This program will help set priority area for the research conducted in the academia since the dialogue is expected to reveal some gap between the product of academia and the expectation of industry in the changed context of our time. This program is expected to generate new areas of research and bringing about innovation in instructional pedagogy. This program will help change the conduct, thinking, behavior, and traditional mindset of educational institutions and change according to the demand of the time. This program will also provide some important feedback to academia in terms of its production, curricula, programs, and skills to be imparted in the students to cope with the vibrant and modernized work sites of the industry. Here industry is referred to as the sectors that consume the product of the academy, whether it be manpower or the research projects it accomplishes enhancing innovation. How can an educational institution be ideal place for the graduates and the community? What role, based on reciprocal benefit, can academia perform for the community and nation at large? These questions are reflected upon seriously while planning for the program. 

Methodology Used for Conducting the Program

The program will be conducted for two days. The seminars for each day will be divided into four sessions, with 90 minutes each. The seminar presentations, not exceeding an hour, from the resource person, will be followed by discussions and comments from the participants, in each session. Both theoretical and practical sessions will be emphasized. The program can be made interactive following the model of conference workshop. The theoretical sessions will be delivered through power point presentations, lectures, hands out (hard copy, soft copy) and so on.

Along with panel discussion, discussant will be formed to note down the reflections, ideas for adaptation, concluding the session, and preparation of agenda regarding the presentation. The participants on the floor will actively contribute for the completion of the ideas through comments and suggestions. The discussant reflection for each panelist discussion will be passed with addition or omission by the floor as Ghodaghodi Declaration 2077.
