Policymakers should work out innovative ways for future classrooms to function both physically and digitally, said Prof. Anil D Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) at AIMA’s Regional Management Conclave 2022.

The 2nd Plenary Session AIMA’s Regional Management Conclave 2022 on- ‘The Future Of Education’ was deliberated by Prof. Anil D Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

A scholar and professor of Mechanical Engineering, well versed in Education Policies and well acquainted with the Laws of Mechanical Engineering, an institution builder by transforming and facilitating growth, Prof. Anil D Sahasrabudhe is also the transformer of Education, and he was very much qualified to deliberate the Session.

Education in India began as a private initiative but was regulated by the State. The compulsions and economic development and the involvement of politics have only changed the landscape of Education over the years. The disruptions in quick succession have only added more to shape Education.

Prof. Anil D Sahasrabudhe started on a very delightful note by explaining the evolution of Education in India, where pupils used to go to a forest in order to receive Education from a teacher who resided there. And that scenario progressed to students getting admission to schools.

The next stage involved educating students with the help of projectors, moving on to also taking the help of computers. There is also a concept of Distance Education adhered to by many. Education can also be received from YouTube lectures. And now, education can be imparted through Zoom.

Besides, every state also has an Open University. Education has also been specialised over the years, one can enroll in a specialised course of any subject/category. Like any other aspect of life, Education has also undergone torments of the VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity) World and only emerged stronger.

The Covid pandemic, for that matter, was an eye-opener for the world to witness the power of education. The creation of vaccines and the innovation in businesses to adapt to the new environment was the outcome of the education received by the creators and innovators.

Education at that time went a complete overhaul but did not come to halt. Online Education bridged the gap in physical attendance for students but education continued and students still got educated. And it was the uncertainty of the pandemic that paved way for many innovations in education that have been included in the National Education Policy now.

The impact of technology on the dissemination of knowledge is the knowledge you need for education, which is freely available on the Internet. A huge amount of information and research is available on different platforms for students to take advantage of.

The teachers and students all got used to the Online Form of Education. However, Blended Learning or Hybrid Learning is also a part of the new Education Policy, with some parts of the education happening in the classroom and some online.

Many institutions are also adopting the Remote Control Experiment where some experiments are conducted with the remote technique. The Finance Minister has already announced for Digital Universities to be operational.

The new Education Policy allows you to mix and match courses from different universities and colleges. It also allows you the flexibility of choosing the duration of the Course of your choice, where you can opt-out of the Programme and again come back and complete the same, he said.

Prof. Anil D Sahasrabudhe also spoke about the Faculty Development Programme as part of the Education Policy, where the teachers are being prepared for a new framework of education; to strengthen their skill set, get exposure to new educational techniques, and more.

Finally, he said that the process of learning never stops. One should become a lifelong learner, and that has to come from the teachers. If the teachers set an example, the students are prone to follow suit. The spirit of education should always prevail; inquisitiveness for innovations, awareness of worldly challenges, and making good use of technology.

Reinventing Organisation For Automated Business: Shiv Shivakumar Tells All

Companies especially at this time, want to be lean, agile and scale up quickly so automating becomes imperative, said Mr. Shiv Shivakumar, Past President, AIMA & Group Executive President, Aditya Birla Group at AIMA’s LeaderSpeak Session.

Having held the position of CEO for many brands, Mr. Shiv Shivakumar, Past President, AIMA & Group Executive President, Aditya Birla Group has helped build brands. A regular writer on leadership, innovation, business models, and digitisation, he was most qualified to deliberate AIMA’s LeaderSpeak Session on- ‘Reinventing Organisation for Automated Business’.

The Covid pandemic has changed the structures of businesses including automating them for smooth function. The flip side, however, is that it could also replace manpower and in the process, with many giving up their jobs. So, what is the middle path that can be adopted when implementing automation?

Mr. Shiv Shivakumar started the Session by saying that the implementation of automaton in a Company needs the integration of processes and technology on all levels. To elaborate further, he said that the things that organisations strive for are- efficiency, productivity, accuracy, collaboration and flexibility.

The concept of automation for companies earlier was typewriters, where a secretary was the hub of information. Also in the earlier days, with men going joining World War 2, women started to work hence the automation at home started with refrigerators, microwave ovens, dishwashers and washing machines in order for them to save household work time.

With age, the progress of automation led to the first E-mail being sent by Computer Programmer, Ray Tomlinson in 1971. The E-mail then became a standard feature in organisations by the 1990s. The first SMS through a mobile phone was also delivered in 1992.

The WiFi also came into being then after. The next big innovation was WhatsApp which came into use in 2009. The USP of this invention was the “double blue tick’ suggesting that the message had been read.

A lot of things of utility have undergone automation over the years. There has been automation in Sports as well. The Indian Premiere League (IPL)for example, has revolutionised the field, where everything is automated. The Indian Railways is a hallmark of how automation can make things smoother than anticipated. Right from Ticket Bookings, Meal Orders and more.

Mr. Shiv Shivakumar said that AI (Artificial Intelligence), ML (Meta Language) and IoT (Internet of Things) were on even before Covid. There are 1.5 Billion PCs and 3.5 Billion Smart Phones globally. As for robots, there are 2.4 million robots installed globally that will slowly replace manpower. China, Japan, Korea, USA and Germany are already dependent on robots for Company Operations. They will have a huge impact on the Transportation Sector, Auto Sector and Construction Sector. Besides, ChatBots are already replacing humans for Customer Queries.

He concluded by saying that companies especially at this time want to be lean, agile and scale up quickly so automating becomes imperative. Automation was there for a long time and the “the future of work will be automated with more inventions happening”.
