About the Organiser
The Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL), Punjab, was established by the State Legislature of Punjab by passing the Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab Act, 2006 (Punjab Act No. 12 of 2006).
About the Program
The Capacity-building Programs in higher education institutes aim to develop and strengthen the skills, instincts, abilities, processes and resources that organizations and communities primarily require to survive, adapt, and thrive in the rapidly changing world.
Universities are centres of capacity-building through research, analysis and innovation. Capacity-building Programs at Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL), Punjab focus on transformation that can be generated from within.
This transformation goes beyond performance of tasks to mould mind-sets and attitudes. The Higher Education System greatly relies on active learning for development of character and knowledge in the present globalized world.
In order to establish internal capacity, impart holistic education, cater to the needs of the community and implement the NEP 2020 mandate of enhancing skills, RGNUL, Punjab shall host 5-day Capacity-Building Program Poetry, Pedagogy and Profession: Understanding Rhyme and Reason across Cultures (20-25 August 2022).
The objective of this program is to elevate excellence in academics and research as well as enhance competence of academicians, researchers, professionals, students and life-long learners.
It is important to conduct such capacity-building programs as the escalation of artificial intelligence in digital times has greatly challenged the ability of human beings to think critically.
The governance of experience by software and algorithm has transformed the way in which human beings perceive the world.
The new communication technologies impact the pedagogical requirements of the times. While digital tools facilitate various processes of learning, the excessive use of smart devices threatens critical thinking skills. The process of critical thinking relies on universal values.
Critical thinking is an active process of synthesizing, analysing and evaluating information and experiences. Interpretation of rhyme and reason enables learners to develop critical thinking.
The teaching of poetry, and performance in words, enhance skills for better communication and provides insights to understand the ways of the world.
The study of poetry develops the cognitive skills of learners. It fosters a culture of good reason and prudence which is the need of the hour.
The Department of English and Public Relations, Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL), Punjab in collaboration with Mary Immaculate College (MIC), University of Limerick, Ireland, Intercultural Poetry and Performance Library (IPPL), Kolkata and Manipal University, Jaipur shall be organising Capacity-Building Program Poetry, Pedagogy and Profession: Understanding Rhyme and Reason across Cultures (20-25 August 2022).
