? For transforming Indian society towards maturity, there is a strong case for balancing of materialistic values with spiritual and moral ones. Let us concentrate on the task of teaching with humility and simplicity and above all gratitude which is an affirmation of goodness towards our teachers and parents.? told Dr. M.M. Goel, Professor of Economics & Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences, Kurukshetra University while delivering the inaugural address in 75th orientation course at the UGC Academic Staff College, here today. He was speaking on the topic ?Excellence Models for Teachers in a Changing Economic Scenario?
To fill in the gaps between quantity and quality of education, we need to improve the communication skills which are essential for every job today including marketing having ample scope of opportunities. In addition to job oriented programmes we should provide spiritual input to the students for facing the stress of competition, believes Professor Goel.
Let us learn to defend our love and respect for the true passion of teaching which has otherwise reduced to a vocation from a profession by some if not many, said Professor Goel. Earlier Professor R.P. Grover, Director ASC & Course Coordinator welcomed & introduced Professor Goel.
