Creating the Perfect Balance Between Knowledge & Skill Development

Anamika Sahu, Managing EditorAccording to All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE),Karnataka has the highest number of colleges per lakh population. However, the state has to travel distance to achieve better gross enrollment ratio. Despite the state having increased the number of higher education institutions three-fold in the past decade, the challenge still lies in creating a balance between knowldge and skill development. While many institutions comprehend the need of skill
development,they have now undermined the essense of delivering knowledge along with it. While skill development makes you ready for the job market, knowledge development ensures you develop the ability to make decisions and grow in your professional sphere.

On the other hand, it is time we take our education system at par with the international standards to ensure quality skilled and technical manpower. Whether it is infrastructure, faculty, curriculum, or the education as a whole, not just Karnataka, but institutions nationally have to work hard to get their students the muscles to stand afirm among the global chartbusters. Hence a perfect balance of theoritical, practical and skill development is important.
