Talk on Higher Education

I recently gave a talk at a meeting on higher education. I began by giving some advice on how conferences can be made much more interesting, and then spoke on three themes: the type of education that is needed for tomorrow’s world, the role of technology in education, and the role of government in education. Here is the 20-minute audio of the talk.

  1. Thanks Rajesh for great talk! You reminded me of great economist E.F. Schumacher of ‘Small is Beautiful’ fame.

    I quote “shall we tell our children that here is a bit of knowledge of physics and there a bit of knowledge of literature, both are as good as one another”. So Shakepeare and Tagore are equally imp like physics and engg.

    thanks again.
