Greetings from the IGNOU – I2IT Centre of Excellence for Advanced Education and Research at I2IT Campus, Pune.
I am more convinced than ever that the priorities for our country are Health and Education. I am grateful that we are one of the providers of these priorities.
Education has to be taken to the masses; it needs to be rooted not in rote learning but in a dynamic new pedagogy that fosters innovation and the leadership mantra in each individual within the system. Flexibility and rapid adaptation to the needs of the day have to be its hallmark if we are to fulfill our vision of a ‘Shining India’. I am forever an idealist. To me, the spirit of nation building has to be at the core of our motivation if we are to break the shackles of age-old behaviour and responses. A vibrant, corruption-free India can only be built by a generation that has learnt to cherish those values our country was forged upon.
The vision that has steered IGNOU – I2IT Centre of Excellence for Advanced Education and Research at I2IT Campus through its inception and progress has been based on this idealism. Our efforts are, we know, but a drop in the ocean. Yet, I also believe that every drop in the ocean counts and these efforts can come to a wonderful fruition.
Confucius reminded us that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. The tiny steps taken by IGNOU – I2IT Centre of Excellence for Advanced Education and Research at I2IT Campus have brought it surprisingly far.
Our journey so far has been an adventure in learning and doing. The way forward can only get better.
Welcome to IGNOU – I2IT Centre of Excellence for Advanced Education and Research at I2IT Campus.
With best wishes,
