Crux of the Issue
Architecture Profession has undergone a decisive and explicit transition over the last decade. This fact requires to be properly acknowledged by all concerned especially teachers and students. The teaching fraternity should consider the new paradigm shifts while they shape architectural pedagogy to address transmission of knowledge in the existing schools that provide architectural discourses. The student community on the other hand has to be intrinsically motivated and focused while pursuing architectural programs. Using new insights and innovative methods should be the new order of the day. Transmission of learning is often attributed to providing the right information by making use of the appropriate resources at the right time, else learning would become obsolete.
- The QIP session will be conducted in parallel with the annual symposium Aakriti 2016. I envision this as an added advantage; as faculty members attending the QIP from regional schools will also get an opportunity to meet and interact with Key Note Speakers and Resource Person visiting our campus for this event also.
