Traditional higher education institutions and structures are failing. We see more and more reports and studies highlighting the fact that most students coming out of professional colleges are unemployable. But perhaps more importantly, the idea of teaching-learning process is being reduced to a mere “transaction”, that too an unsatisfying transaction to all parties involved. Students don’t feel happy in class, teachers are perpetually stressed, and parents suffer from anxiety.
Can the learning experience, in and out of classroom, be something that makes students happy?
Can all teachers be happy in class?
Does the class always have to be stressful? Not just because it is may be confrontational but because it is unbearably passive?
