The study skills curriculum curriculum for the aspiring Indian scientist
India is one of the most promising countries in terms of science and technology.
The country has the largest number of postgraduate students in the world, more than half of whom are studying science and engineering.
But with the country’s science and tech sector facing a number of challenges, there is a need to create an efficient study skills programme to ensure a skilled workforce in the future.
The Science and Technology Minister has been working with the NITI Aayog to create a study skills education curriculum to ensure more students have access to the necessary study skills.
The aim is to provide all students from primary to tertiary levels, from entry level to advanced levels, with an understanding of how science and science related technology works, a government official said.
According to a report by the Centre for Science Education, the Indian Science Education Act, 2016, has been designed to create science and industry as the core of education.
The Act requires the government to create the study skills programmes for all students, in an effort to address the needs of the country.
It also provides for the establishment of committees to implement the scheme.
The new scheme has been initiated under the government’s Science and Technological Development (STD) Mission, with the aim of providing an integrated curriculum and providing an access to knowledge and skills for students from secondary and tertiary education.
The NITA Aayoga has already developed an online programme for all schools.
The Ministry of Science and technology is looking at ways to extend the online programme to secondary education too.
The ministry has also created an online course called Science and Engineering in India to provide an alternative to the traditional lecture, to make students aware of the science behind a technology.
The curriculum is being developed with the help of the National Institute of Science Education (NISE), which will be responsible for creating the programme.
The course will cover topics like computing, chemistry, biochemistry, physics, biology and physics related disciplines, said Anjali Kannan, director of the NISE.
The curriculum is part of the Ministry of External Affairs’s Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship programme.
In the meantime, the Ministry has already issued guidance on how to implement these schemes.
The minister is also looking at creating a pilot programme on the sidelines of the Science and Tech Summit, which is held every three years, to gauge the results.
