I mean how else do you explain this program: http://www.ugc.ac.in/policy/refresher_course.html
Here's what the program is meant for:
"...is intended to inculcate in the young lecturers the quality of self- reliance through awareness of the social, intellectual and moral environment as well as to discover self-potential and confidence."
and add to that,
".....The participation in Orientation Course and Refresher Course is mandatory requirement for career advancement from lecturer to lecturer (Senior Scale) and......"
Therefore, we are teaching our 'Teachers'; they can't learn anything themselves!
And its not like they are eager to learn anything in the classrooms either; they need to be in there to get their "well-deserved" promotions. Infact, they will make cat-calls in the class room disrupting whatever discussion the "lecturer" is trying to initiate and then they will demand that they are allowed to cheat during the exam.
How about a list of people who have not received their promotions because they failed to learn and convert to practice anything from these courses?
