“In order to be recognised at the global-level, we need to accept new challenges such as the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS),” said Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Kozhikode faculty Dr C Raju.

He was speaking at the inauguration of a day-long workshop on CBCS organised by the Yuvaraja’s College (Autonomous) here on Monday.

Pointing out that CBCS was embraced by various educational institutions in the country 10 years ago, Dr Raju said that it would assist in encouraging creative thinking among students.

He said that IIM Kozhikode was providing quality education as it had accepted the CBCS system.

Describing the advantages, he said students under the CBCS scheme will not only be able to continue their education in other universities of the country, but also in varsities abroad.

He said that this is possible as CBCS is a common education programme that is available in all varsities.

He said that there is no need for students to lose their sleep about the introduction of the scheme. Dr Raju said that it gives a chance to students to pursue wide array of subjects.

It would help improve their knowledge base, he added.

Observing that in many places, CBCS was opposed because of the lack of quality teachers and lack of basic infrastructure, he said that students might find it difficult to understand subjects in English.

He said that in order to have transparency in education, it is essential to have CBCS.

Lucretia L Allyn Professor Emeritus of History, Connecticut College, USA, Dr Edward I Brodkin, Yuvaraja’s College Principal Dr C B Ramachandra and Yashoda Nanjappa were present.
