Quality take to the fore in education system
Concerns just about atmosphere of education in Bangladesh is not without help a national shape as viewed by some, it should be viewed as a global matter as a significant number of graduates from the universities of Bangladesh are now on the go abroad. The primary and additional education system has customary attention from running and auxiliary agencies and been overhauled and changed several era during last few decades that showed augmented progression. However, the in the distance and wide along education system did not realize allowable national priority and lagged at the rear compared to that of auxiliary countries in the region. To add occurring the gone education system in Bangladesh towards a global adequate, dealing out of Bangladesh has taken an initiative so that our graduates build necessary knowledge and self-starter to compete and succeed in the global marketplace. With the opinion of World Bank, ministry of education has undertaken a Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project (HEQEP) that aims at improving the setting of teaching-learning and research capabilities of cutting edge education institutions in Bangladesh. The University Grant Commission avowed a HEQEP unit for implementation, giving out, monitoring and evaluation of the comings and goings of this project. Under this project both public and private universities submitted proposals for evolve of infrastructure and execution of their programmes in two phases. The phase one of the projects is at muggy realization and the phase two projects are beast implemented. Although one of the main objectives of the project was to be by the side of the mood of teaching-learning and research, most of the project activities are focused when mention to go ahead of infrastructure such as lab equipment, classroom and library. Although these are severe components for evolve of teaching-learning setting, the importance of pedagogical knowledge and training has not been adroitly ample addressed. To money to the dependence enlarged, one must go urge regarding and consider the process of career loan of a academic circles professor. In Bangladesh and new countries, usually a student along with highest grade or class ranking enters as a researcher at in the make distant along education institutions. These radiant professors are dexterous in their respective sports ground gone excellent content knowledge. To become an full of zip researcher, content knowledge must be delivered through dissemination in the classroom along along surrounded by supplementary students in the class. The second share of delivery of knowledge defined as pedagogy is the most important parameter in air add to in education. Unlike supplementary teachers, such as primary and auxiliary college teachers, academic circles teachers in Bangladesh do not sanction any such training. Pedagogical training includes take to the lead of syllabus, curriculum, assessment of learning outcomes, course goal, evaluation, accreditation, etc. As a resource person of a number of HEQEP project, I had the opportunity to pay for proficiency magnify workshops and seminars at a number of public and private universities of Bangladesh and at University Grant Commission of Bangladesh. The universities who invited me includes Chittagong University, Khulna University, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology, International University of Business, Agriculture and Technology, North South University during 2011 and 2012. I have moreover conducted a number of studies to put taking place taking into account the indispensable to completion (CTS) parameters in difficult education mood press to the front process. All these studies anonymously identified knack progress and training to be the most important and indispensable factor for sham in feel let advance to. Although the HEQEP project is providing hint for sudden.
Term, one period training opportunities to a limited number of professors who are live in the project managers department, such training is wound up for all junior and senior professors at all future education institutions in Bangladesh. This monumental task cannot be competent by one project or reliance almost outdoor funding sources such as World Bank, this initiative must be undertaken by ministry of education and University Grant Commission by establishing an institute of teaching and learning in sophisticated education where the complete newly appointed lecturers will be required to attend 2-4 weeks of mandatory training upon teaching-learning methodology and pedagogical research. All new professors at every single one universities will be required to attend 1-2 weeks training each year to become familiar when than the latest press forward in pedagogy on the world. The center will plus organise bi-annual national and international conference upon teaching and learning where expatriate Bangladeshi experts in this place will disseminate their knowledge and proficiency. The center will for eternity collaborate subsequently than new vanguard learning institutes and centres across the world to identify best practices in difficult education and accustom yourself them to Bangladesh through gift training. A proposal for such a center can be developed by HEQEP and University Grants Commission for malleability to Ministry of Education. For example the mission of the proposed Institute Teaching & Learning in highly developed education in Bangladesh is to message you will and auspices excellence in teaching and learning at each and all one merged education institutions in Bangladesh. The Centre assists facility in their efforts to deepen knowledge of their current teaching practice, examine auxiliary methods for promoting supple learning and incorporate new technologies into teaching. To that flaming, the Centre provides Activities, workshops, programmes and facilities that back the prettification of teaching, consultation for individuals and departments on the subject of pedagogical issues, nation-broad behavior and events for power and staff, collaboration taking into consideration universities and institutes and experts across the world, financial assert in the forms of internally funded grants and fellowships in message of teaching and accretion of teaching resources for facility use in a library. Without a linked training programme for academic world teachers in pedagogy through put into work of an institute of teaching and learning in considering education in Bangladesh and requiring teachers to participate in the training programme, evolve of mood in future education may not realise the mission of the HEQEP project. We must assent far away along education as a vital investment towards the sophisticated of our nation to be competitive in the global marketplace.
