Classroom education:

India today reporter: Can the classrooms remain as congested as they are now ? how can they be decongested considering Indias poor education Infrastructure?

Dhruv Galgotia : I believe that during the COVID19 pandemic the shift from classroom teaching to online teaching for the delivery of knowledge has seen a remarkable shift. Many private universities in India such as ours have quickly adapted to Online teaching and learning via several platforms and Learning management systems available with universities.

The classrooms in universities and colleges post opening of the lockdown will have to adhere to the norms of social distancing and students and faculty will have to ensure the guidelines given to universities and colleges by the competent authorities are followed and implemented.Extensive Sanitisation of classrooms and common areas will be the new normal in educational institutions.

I also feel that the government has been pro-active and forward looking in managing the epidemic and it will be equally conscious of the infrastructure requirements needed for practicing of social distancing in educational institutions managed by the government.

The shift system/sub-group of classes will need to be implemented to take load off the classrooms and limitations and restrictions on number of students will need to be implemented.Institutions will be required to open for all 7 days of the week.

Some part of the courses e.g. 25-30% may even be given online mode to ensure course coverage while reducing physical contact and universities with strong IT infrastructure will be able to adapt to this new way of teaching.

Our students at Galgotias are being exposed to more than 40,000+ online lectures, 12,000+ e-learning resources, 3,000+ virtual classroom instances, 4,000+ online assignments, 1,000+ virtual videos and more than 500+ virtual programming labs.

2. Related activities : Other activities such as Transportation,Mess, Hostel, Sports, and extra-curricular activities.How do you plan to go about the, ?

Dhruv Galgotia: I am happy to share that while universities were struggling to figure out how to transition to the digital world, Galgotias university became the first university to conduct India’s First online fest where more that 10,000 national and international students participating and getting an opportunity to showcase their talent in 50+ events while sitting at home. This is the first time in India that an event at this scale has been done online and hosted by Galgotias university.

Transportation management teams in institutions will need ensure proper distancing and there will be a need to regulate and rework the capacity and strength of students.The no of vehicles assisting students in all forms of transportation will need to increased and proper sanitation in vehicles,buses,motorbikes and parking areas should be planned to ensure the hygiene.

All major sporting events will have to be cancelled in the immediate future but institutions and institutions will allow sports where individuals or less than 5 people are involved such as squash, table tennis, tennis, Golf, badminton. Team sports such as cricket, football, basketball will need a review and certain changes of maintaining distancing will need to be made to play and implement such sporting activities

Apart from this, staggered meal timings in the mess/canteen will need to be ensured during dining hours and Mess management teams will need to ensure proper waste disposal mechanism and hygiene in sensitive areas.

3.Practical and technical education : How will it impact the laboratories in science streams ?

Dhruv Galgotia: All over the world there are platforms and good practices to perform lab activities on open source simulation softwares and in India, Virtual laboratories are used for practical assessments and are fully interactive simulations in which students perform experiments, collect data and answer questions to assess their understanding.These virtual labs combine animations, illustrations, and videos to support and convey key information and engage and enlighten the students in the process of science and can be very close to the real-world experiment.

Our students from Computer science, Electrical engineering, civil engineering and also microbiology and other basic sciences are using virtual labs and gaining knowledge without compromising on quality of education.

4. Examinations: How will exam centres be maintained ? Even regular examinations will not be held in the same way. But how will they be different ?

Dhruv Galgotia: Examinations and assessments are an important activity for every institution and there will need to be a radical change in the way examinations are conducted in educational institutions.I believe the conventional ways the examinations being conducted using pen and paper will soon be replaced by online assessment tools equipped to handle any format of questions and answers, this will not only reduce contact of students in exam halls but will also help faculty assess the student online from any location.This process will not only be safe but also an effective way to practice in times of a pandemic and beyond.

Institutions which do not adapt to technology and its use in academics will need to upgrade their IT infrastructure to ensure all precautions are taken into consideration. A recent study by a top research company shows online education taking a leap with numbers reaching almost 10 million by next year.

Online softwares are now available with various diverse capabilities tackling the issues of impersonation,unfair means and various aspects of cheating are covered by these tools to ensure fair examinations for all stakeholders.

5. How are teachers upgrading their skills during ?

Dhruv Galgotia: This pandemic has given us many difficulties but with every challenge come an opportunity. Faculties at Galgotias apart from teaching students online and taking their assessments and presentations are also upgrading their skills by taking part in various Online Faculty development programs, digital workshops, Online Certifications courses and accessing several open course ware from the best institutions globally benchmarked in their field to ensure their delivery and knowledge not only increases but also help them grow in their career.

At Galgotias we have tie-ups with several subject matter experts trainers and Industry experts to ensure our faculty are trained and assessed from time to time to keep up to date with Industry 4.0.

6. Hostels : what will be the changes in hostels and living conditions ?

Dhruv Galgotia: I feel hostels will need to be modifies to an extent of maximum one student per room to ensure privacy and social distancing is followed. The use of central air-conditioning will be contained and independent AC units will be installed in all rooms. Sanitation drives on regular basis in common areas and activity rooms with limited no of students will be implemented. Gyms and other activities involving more than 4-5 people will be avoided till situation gets better.There will be a need for continuous medical assessments in the hostel and 24/7 medical helpdesk for all students be made available to ensure a quick response incase a student develops symptoms of a disease.

Dhruv galgotia : Our success lies in our Students success !

1) What is your success Mantra? Please share your experience that made you successful?

 

At Galgotias university, I love and respect people specially students using innovation to create new ideas and like to be surrounded with intellectual people who can implement those ideas and turn their dreams into reality. I want to share with them their concerns and be part of their joy. I have an aim; a vision; goal and I remain very focused towards my mission, and I don’t let anybody deter me from my path. My success lies is in my conviction and my spirit of not giving up. I am a compulsive fighter and since my childhood I have always dared to dream big.i always tell my students to be passionate and chase your goals and dreams with hard work.

 

2) What do you think sets Galgotias University apart from other educational institutions?

 

Galgotias University is one of the top universities in India that students can rely on for a bright future. It is amid top colleges in Greater Noida, India. Galgotias University has been engaged in teaching, research and development proposes to create a pool of eminent visiting / adjunct faculty from national and international universities and R & D labs to promote excellence in teaching and research.  The core faculty of Galgotias University is comprised of leading scholars with a passion for research and teaching.  (Galgotias University offers dynamic and rewarding opportunities to visiting professors). One of the biggest reasons for our success is the placements that have been leading our students to be successful in diverse fields. Our students are working with top corporates ,leading law firms , hotels , hospitals , government offices , Armed forces , IT and ITE service companies and we are proud of each one of them for this success. I firmly believe our ssuccess lies in our students success.

 

3) What do you feel is the biggest strength of Galgotias University right now?

 

Galgotias University aspires to be globally known for innovation at the intersection of disciplines.Galgotias University follows the global education excellence and in addition to that, we also inculcate ethos, culture and moral values which make each student of Galgotias University a distinguished one. Galgotias university uses technology in not only operations but in teaching and learning also which gives us a massive edge over other universities.

 

4) What have been the biggest challenges you’ve had to overcome?

 

In a country where receiving higher education remains a dream for a large section of youth due to their financial constraints or geographical location, it is vital to explore what sort of opportunities and challenges private universities are faced with to provide succour in the Higher Education Sector. The changing times and a maddening race to emulate fellow competitors within the country has posed many challenges for private universities. They include issues like paucity of quality-faculty, resources and funds to research, introducing new courses to enable students turn employable, providing them requisite professional skills and meeting the requirements of the knowledge economy; drawing meritorious students, and building state of the art infrastructure.

 

5) How do you encourage creative thinking within your institution?

 

The concept of teaching creativity has been around for quite some time.Most of the practice of creative methods is being done outside the traditional educational institutions by consulting firms and by persons in companies who have been trained in creative problem solving methods. We believe, the world needs creative thinkers in all disciplines; people who can tackle complex challenges and develop innovative solutions. Yet our educational system focuses on teaching students “convergent thinking” — how to solve problems that have one correct answer (already known), instead of teaching students “divergent thinking” — how to come up with multiple solutions to open-ended, unscripted problems. It is these types of open-ended and complex problems they will face as they pursue future careers.

Aradhana Galgotia writes book review for Atul Gawande Being Mortal

“Aradhana galgotia with Suneel Galgotia and Arushi Galgotia”

Ms Aradhana Galgotia, daughter of Suneel Galgotia, Chancellor Galgotia university loves reading all kinds of books and loves her Kindle.

Aradhana is in the process of writing Suneel Galgotias biography.Aradhana is a voracious and avid reader and writes reviews on books which are published in leading magazines and newspapers.

Ms Galgotia has done her Political science Hond from Jesus and Mary college, Delhi University and her Masters in Law from Queens Mary university London.

Here is the review :

This book has changed my perspective towards life and most definitely death. It accurately illustrates that a successful and fulfilled life is not linked to its longevity but it’s quality.

An afterthought we all have but have difficulty in implementing it. Atul Gawande, an American surgeon and Harvard professor mainly focuses on understanding the needs of the old and easing their aging process where more focus should be given on their comfort, mental stability and security rather than confining them forcefully within the four walls of a hospital room or uncomfortable surroundings. Truly an eye opener.

Suneel galgotia: A pathmaker in publishing, retailing , hospitality and education.

Extracts from interview in the India today Magazine :

BRIGHT BULBS : ABOUT YOURSELF –

Mr Suneel Galgotia , an educationist , philanthropist and a humanitarian was born in New Delhi and completed his education from SRCC, Delhi university.He went on to establish ,grow and diversify his family business of retailing, publishing and hospitality to a global level. He now is the founder Chancellor of one of India’s largest and most sought after university. This unmatched growth of Galgotias university is a culmination of delivering new technology courses, globally benchmarked hi-tech campuses, world class faculty comprising of thought leaders and practicing professionals, innovative technology based teaching methodology and an unparalleled corporate interaction.

BEST FOR YOU : YOUR BIG MOMENTS

There have been several moments which I have cherished in my journey to creating a university of global standards.One of our big moments was when Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi ji gave Galgotias university an award for academic excellence. Chancellor Suneel Galgotia firmly believes in Our Prime ministers vision which says Knowledge and education are not restricted to books. The purpose of education is to enable balanced growth of every dimension of a human being, which is not possible without innovation.”

DREAM PLAN: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME AN EDUCATIONIST

Mr Suneel Galgotia saw a big gap in the higher education sector where there was a growing quantity of educational institutions but the Quality of education was completely missing. He wanted to establish a university as a place of cutting edge learning, research and ensured that quality of education is delivered to the youth of this nation by offering them a world class curriculum, latest industry ready courses with placement Tieups and bringing together the best faculty minds from across the world.

Mr Suneel Galgotia is also prompted by the Prine Ministers vision for India’s developement as a knowledge aswell as a learning society and feels that imparting quality education at affordable costs is an important input both for the growth of the society as well as for the individual.

FORTUNE SEED : MAKING BEST PROFESSIONALS FOR THE FUTURE

Properly imparting quality education and skill development in students can contribute to increase in the national gross product, brings about cultural richness, builds positive attitude towards use of technology, increases efficiency and effectiveness of the governance. Education opens new horizons for an individual, provides new aspirations and develops new values. It strengthens competencies and develops commitment. Education using todays cutting edge platforms generates in an individual a critical outlook on social and political realities and sharpens the ability to self-examination, self-monitoring and self-criticism which is very important for today’s generation.The future agenda for education will be to empower individuals, assure high quality of life and pave way to learning society. The new system of education has to be rooted to culture and committed to progress.

UPLIFTING LIVES : TIPS FOR ASPIRING STUDENTS

My only tip to aspiring students is that “You can be the best and be anything you want to be in future. The time to make it happen starts now! So Stay the course and be focused”. I firmly believe that there is no substitute for hard work and every student must stay focussed on the end goal and work towards achieving it in-spite of distractions, diversions and roadblocks which may come in the way for each of them.

This unmatched growth of Galgotias university is a culmination of delivering new technology courses, globally benchmarked hi-tech campuses, world class faculty comprising of thought leaders and practicing professionals, innovative technology based teaching methodology and an unparalleled corporate interaction.

BEST FOR YOU : YOUR BIG MOMENTS

There have been several moments which I have cherished in my journey to creating a university of global standards.One of our big moments was when Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi ji gave Galgotias university an award for academic excellence. Chancellor Suneel Galgotia firmly believes in Our Prime ministers vision which says Knowledge and education are not restricted to books. The purpose of education is to enable balanced growth of every dimension of a human being, which is not possible without innovation.” Suneel galgotia has a networth of 3000 crores.

DREAM PLAN: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME AN EDUCATIONIST

Mr Suneel Galgotia saw a big gap in the higher education sector where there was a growing quantity of educational institutions but the Quality of education was completely missing. He wanted to establish a university as a place of cutting edge learning, research and ensured that quality of education is delivered to the youth of this nation by offering them a world class curriculum, latest industry ready courses with placement Tieups and bringing together the best faculty minds from across the world.

Mr Suneel Galgotia is also prompted by the Prine Ministers vision for India’s developement as a knowledge aswell as a learning society and feels that imparting quality education at affordable costs is an important input both for the growth of the society as well as for the individual.

FORTUNE SEED : MAKING BEST PROFESSIONALS FOR THE FUTURE

Properly imparting quality education and skill development in students can contribute to increase in the national gross product, brings about cultural richness, builds positive attitude towards use of technology, increases efficiency and effectiveness of the governance. Education opens new horizons for an individual, provides new aspirations and develops new values. It strengthens competencies and develops commitment. Education using todays cutting edge platforms generates in an individual a critical outlook on social and political realities and sharpens the ability to self-examination, self-monitoring and self-criticism which is very important for today’s generation.The future agenda for education will be to empower individuals, assure high quality of life and pave way to learning society. The new system of education has to be rooted to culture and committed to progress.

UPLIFTING LIVES : TIPS FOR ASPIRING STUDENTS

My only tip to aspiring students is that “You can be the best and be anything you want to be in future. The time to make it happen starts now! So Stay the course and be focused”. I firmly believe that there is no substitute for hard work and every student must stay focussed on the end goal and work towards achieving it in-spite of distractions, diversions and roadblocks which may come in the way for each of them.

Why self study is better than coaching : Dhruv Galgotia

I firmly believe that with the increasing number of new technologies and Teaching learning aids which are available online at the click of a button, education is no longer confined within the four walls of a classroom.

There are not only several high quality Massive online open course ( MOOC’s) available for self study but several platforms which make learning more effective by making complex and difficult areas of study easy with the help of graphics, 3D and visual effects on video platforms on the internet.

There are several low cost , affordable and customisable content available on platforms such as Udacity, EDx , Course-era and academic earth which students find the be better in comparison to the same course being taken in large in-person lectures in coaching centres.

Self learning takes a lot of discipline and hard work and students should set realistic goals and find out which learning techniques work best for them. What has really worked for me is the ‘short frequent sessions of self study’ which made learning more effective and productive.
