For all the latest Bhubaneswar News, All governments in India,which is when Rajiv Gandhi visited Sri Lanka.integrating mind and body, part honours research degree and part conventionally overloaded syllabi with rote learning In principleit is not a bad idea to think about pathways to higher education For examplecan students with an initial vocational training enter conventional systems But to assume that a high-end undergraduate degreeaiming at global benchmarking and a stream that allows students to drop out after two or three yearsshould exist as one integrated programme is to live in a pedagogic fantasy land: it risks both diminishing the standards for real honours students and leaving behind those who are not inclined to be challenged There will be no pedagogic identity left to the university The second issue is the question of interlocking parts The relationship between the foundational courses and choices students will have made in school is not clear We used to joke that India did not have a three-year undergraduate degreeit had a five-year degree The MA had become a remedial BA in many instances What is going to be the relationship between the four-year BA programme and other masters programmes Againin principlethere is scope for doing things like a one-year masters programme But againthese proposals are not about the identity of degrees: they are largely about checking off a mathematical formula on the number of years The third is the question of concrete tactics Admittedlyall reform is a matter of adaptation and adjustments will take place But the question is: are all the material preconditions for moving in the right direction in place DU has thousands of vacanciesand even though there is a promise to fill them upthere are questions about how quickly this can be done It is hard to assess workloads till the final course protocols are in place But it is very hard to avoid the impression thatwith the kind of workloads in placethe university will find it more difficult to attract teachers who also want to sustain research careers Many professors in the university are doing wonderful work But the nuts and bolts of what it now takes to service a large number of students stifles the creativity of so many teachers The tension between DU as a teaching and as a research university is bound to be exacerbated The fourth question is organisational For good or for illDUs strengths rested on a series of institutional commitments: autonomy to collegesa certain standing for different facultiesa toleration for a bit of internal institutional diversity among colleges and so on As the proposed reforms standall this is going to be fundamentally eroded Againthis is something that could be argued There is a case for expanding choice through inter-college coordination But will a decimation of the collegiate system serve the university well More importantlythe fundamental question plaguing higher education has remained unanswered: who should define the identity of the university And what is the role of each of the constituent parts in this definition Can the debate over autonomy simply be reduced to the autonomy of the vice chancellor We seem to want to copy the core of the American systemwithout the fundamental ingredient that makes that system tick: autonomy at different levels of the institution Individual facultyfor the most partin charge of the content and standards of their class room and so on But reform without taking on board autonomy of the constituent parts is like trying to do Hamlet without the Prince of Denmark The debate over DU reforms mirrors the pathologies of our larger politics The old system needed change But the need for reform has become a ruse for centralisation of power The relationship of reform to pedagogic objectives is tenuous Impatience with nuts and bolts threatens to imperil its success Many procedural niceties and due deference to form was put aside If Parliament can pass dozens of bills in a few minuteswhy cant an academic council clear courses in equal time Initiallythe debate oscillated between a decrepit ancien regime that many teachers represented and a Jacobin administration confusing change with improvement Sensiblepedagogically engaged and detail-oriented voices lacked conviction and were sidelined The social credibility of the professoriat had sunk so low that it was easy to marginalise themto portray them as self-serving naysayers standing in the way of a forward looking vision DU urgently needs to find its centrea path between a thoughtless revolution and an obdurate conservatism Whether such a path is possible is for the university to decide But the risk of losing the colossus amongst Indian universities is palpable; one that we ignore

App More Top NewsWritten by Shivani Naik | Published: September 20 2014 2:42 am Related News The Athletics Federation of India’s incompetence in dealing with cases of gender ambiguity was exposed with the Santhi Soundarajan episode in 2006 The case was handled so abysmally that the sprinter was driven to attempting suicide Pinki Pramanik another athlete accused of lying about her gender also went through the same humiliation With Dutee Chand the Sports Authority of India has stepped in But it inspires little confidence and seems to have woefully inadequate expertise to deal with the case of the talented sprinter who was found to have hyperandrogenism It is a condition that has got her barred from international meets since she is believed to have more than the permissible level of naturally produced testosterone in her body India loves celebrating medals won by women at international contests but it is incapable of protecting its girls their privacy and their dignity when they fail to conform to the gender template This failure continues even after the SAI has ostensibly extended support to Dutee Chand Does any medical expert have the answers to a fundamental question that will determine the 18-year-old’s future: are the high testosterone levels functional (which is believed to aid performance) or non-functional (which doesn’t) When an anonymous coach reported Dutee to the authorities was the entire set of tests carried out precisely according to the stipulations laid down by the International Association of Athletics Federations Were the standard guidelines followed before she was declared positive for hyperandrogenism Sadly no one in the federation or the SAI is held responsible So it is very optimistic to expect these same officials to step forward and ensure that Dutee who was raised as a girl is allowed to compete again This is especially true when opinions are divided internationally Indian officials plan to knock on the doors of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and take the human and civil rights tack in arguing their case They plan to argue that her high testosterone levels cannot be called an unfair advantage just as Usain Bolt’s height or Michael Phelps’s massive wingspan cannot be dubbed unfair Hence she should not be made to undergo intervention invasive or non-invasive in order to be allowed to compete in the female category again The after-effects of hormonal therapy or of a surgical intervention are not fully known though international sporting bodies have allowed athletes to return after such interventions Four athletes went through “a partial clitoridectomy with a bilateral gonadectomy followed by a deferred feminising vaginoplasty and estrogen replacement therapy” and returned to the track reported the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism in June 2013 The doctors in these cases who have been sworn to secrecy cannot reveal much about the aftermath of such procedures on these nameless girls But Dutee will need to be made aware of the exact consequences of the choices she makes At 18 it can be a lot to deal with Dutee will need to be counselled and more importantly heard out because there are a multitude of agendas at play here The athlete a determined and vivacious girl is desperate to return to the track This is the first time an athlete has tried to reject therapy while insisting that she be allowed to compete Running is also her livelihood and if the court case stretches for too long Dutee could lose the best years of her career Her family might have its own perspective on whether her career is more important than her health in the long run — this becomes relevant if there are risks to corrective therapy Also if Indian rivals and their coaches instigated the tests on Dutee what is the guarantee that they will not raise objections again when she is reinstated Who will convince them to show empathy And all this before she is even thrown into the international arena which is merciless Take the case of Caster Semenya who faced immense hostility before South Africa rallied around its girl and defended her right to compete Where professional sport is high commerce competitors — women themselves — are loath to concede an advantage especially since testosterone is widely believed to aid performance International guidelines stipulate that testosterone level is the decisive determinant of gender and suggested corrective action for athletes before they are allowed to compete again This after many decades of debate on the proper course of action India will have an uphill climb if it decides to take Dutee’s case to the CAS and support her stand — that she be allowed to compete without corrective action It must tread carefully Dutee’s dream is at stake here shivaninaik@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related Newscoupled with a choice to students to drop out at different stages as
