Dr. M.R. Ravi releases ‘Mukthabhandara’ study book

Mysore/Mysuru: Maintaining that teachers should focus on personality development of their students, IAS Officer Dr. M.R. Ravi observed that teachers also have the responsibility to ensure that the student community acquires knowledge that connects it with  society.

He was speaking at the valedictory of the free coaching camp for the written exam for appointment of Assistant Professors conducted by KSOU Competitive Exams Coaching Centre at Cauvery Auditorium in Mukthagangothri campus here on Dec. 22.

Pointing out that the aspirants should not join the profession only for the purpose of job, Dr. Ravi said that those who have the intention of bringing about a real change by imparting better education, should alone enter the teaching profession.

Stressing on the need for the teaching faculty to have good communication and correspondence skills, Dr. Ravi said he could not understand why a subject on communication skills has not been added in the exam syllabus.

Noting that we have to realise the difference between employment and profession, he observed that teaching should not be considered as employment but be called as a profession.

Contending that teaching methods have changed over the years with advancements in science and technology, he said that of late, virtual mode of learning has come to the fore. But he feels that the virtual mode is not that effective, he added. He also gave some tips to the aspirants on how to take up responsibilities in the teaching profession.

On the occasion, Dr. Ravi released ‘Mukthabhandara’, a study book for  Assistant Professor aspirants.

    To make teachers responsible for everything without foresight, forethought, vision or supporting ecosystem is the easiest way perhaps?
    “Teachers should focus on personality development” – Can anyone elaborate How? Why? Which? When?
    1. What about parents at home? – With both working, the expectation is everything should be done by the school?
    2. What about public personalities being role models worthy of emulation? – Doesnt action speak louder than words?
    3. What about speedy justice system to show that crime does not pay?
    4. How to make an example of seeking and offering bribes so that students understand the ethics and integrity aspects?

    Any answers please?

    In India, these IAS officers are know-all wise men and women, and they dish out advice!
    Is any of them honest and in-corruptible? Don’t think so!
