National Law University and Judicial Academy (NLUJA), Assam organized a five-day online workshop on the Development of Curriculum for Multi-Disciplinary Courses from November 10 to November 14.
Faculty Members of Universities across the country participated in the workshop, said a statement.
With the evolving times, the thrust on multi-disciplinary education has become ever so more pressing owing to its potential to harness the dynamism of knowledge beyond the rigid and restrictive boundaries separating and segregating disciplines, it said.
“The traditional format of education that restrains exploration beyond the predetermined disciplinary boundaries is inept at addressing the demands of the day; at this juncture, multidisciplinary education steps in as the much-awaited medicament to transform and expand the possibilities of education, in synergy with the demands of the technologically driven knowledge society,” the statement added.
The Workshop aimed at building the capacity of teachers to envision, design and administer multi-disciplinary courses, in order that the hallowed vision of transforming the traditional educational system, by integrating multi-disciplinary facets, comes alive in the most effective manner.
Eminent academicians of the country lent their inputs to the discourse.
Vice-Chancellor of NLUJA, Assam, VK Ahuja successfully steered the programme as its chief patron.
