Directorate of Higher Education (DoHE), Nagaland organised an orientation programme on “choice based credit system” (CBCS) for principals of secular colleges at the DoHE, Kohima.

Owing to the prevalent situation amid the second wave of COVID -19, the programme which was to be held at De Oriental Grand was changed to a virtual meet. During the inaugural programme, NU Lumami vice chancellor, Prof. Pardeshi Lal highlighted the importance of CBCS. Appreciating the concern DoHE and academic leaders for their urge to pursue quality education, he stated that the root of the quality of leadership that the nation was building upon, came from the educational institutions.

The inaugural session was chaired by secretary, higher and technical education, Anoop Khinchi, while vote of thanks was proposed by director, higher education, Dr. Apeni  Lotha. Director, IQAC, NU Lumami, Prof. Dipak Sinha spoke on “syllabus under choice based credit system: implementation and guidelines” at the session-1, which was chaired by principal, Kohima Science College (Autonomous) Jotsoma, Dr. Lily Sema,. In session-II, dean, academic, St. Joseph University, Dimapur, Dr. R.K Behera spoke on “practical aspect of implementation of CBCS.” It was chaired by Dr. Asakho Hibo, principal, Japfu Christian College and president Nagaland College Principals Forum. Meanwhile, additional director, higher education, Dr. Katoni Jakhalu gave the concluding remarks.

It may be mentioned that University Grants Commission (UGC) introduced CBCS and has made it mandatory for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to implement it.

Currently, three autonomous institutions in Nagaland have already introduced the CBCS and Nagaland University would be introducing it from the next academic session. CBCS was initiated to bring in flexibility for the knowledge seeker from a list of elective, core and soft skill courses. To maximize skill based education and enhance student learning outcomes in terms of their grades as well as skills, NEP 2020 has made crucial changes in the traditional teaching-learning system in India.

Thereby, the government has decided to introduce a unique concept of Academic Bank of Credit (ABC) coupled with CBCS to facilitate the best education journey to the career-oriented students of the 21st century.
