IntroductionStudent outlooks and the academic institutions' reactions are obviously complicated concerns that affect practically every area of higher education. We can see some of the realistic happenings in our country in the educational sector while serving society. Always there is an imbalance between the learners and the educators. When the country is unhealthy and under uneconomical situations, there is no way for a compromise on the quality of education since it is the backbone for societal development.
Where expectations come from
Two-way approachSo as to meet the ever-changing expectations of students and parents, academic institutions have to adopt a carefully planned strategy. The authorities of the institutions need to have open discussions with the students and their parents before finalizing their strategies. Once the strategies have been finalized, the authorities have to be transparent in communicating their possibilities and their servicing changes to accommodate their expectations and what are the changes they need in the expectations of the students and parents. Probably to arrive at a conclusion, it may take a few iterations. Such a two-way approach is a practical way to meet the expectations of the students, parents, and academic institutions, in the information era. Most of the parents' expectations are such that ultimately their children should have a job offer when they become graduates even if all of their other expectations could not be fully met. So, academic institutions have to identify the most significant expectations while planning their strategies.
Supply-demand mismatchAs the main expectation of the outgoing students and their parents is employment opportunities, we have to see the real situations in the employability of graduates.
The role of industry in education has become increasingly important. To begin, businesses must be able to express their expectations of educators. Second, rather than being delivered behind closed doors, in-work education must be enhanced throughout the field and made more accessible to a broader range of employees. Finally, there are still correlations involving education and career advancement - graduate occupation and career trajectories should extend further than the initial destinations of graduates.
Educators - Be the changeOur modern lives have undergone significant transformations. To accommodate the dynamic environment, our approaches, activities, and deliverables must be modified. These could be a few reasons why our students and their parents expect a change. Being a massive group of students and parents, the possibilities can't be all of a sudden though they wish to do so. Considering education as a service to society, the educators could change themselves to the extent possible fulfilling the group's expectations and be examples to others. Your eagerness to do changes ensures your institutions' suppleness, positive growth, competitiveness, and satisfaction.
Employers anticipate adapting the present curriculum as an emerging curriculum in order to align the abilities of university graduates with the demands of the economy, industry, and marketplace for employment and enhancement. This curriculum change must be a communitarian exertion between industries, students & graduates, and academic institutions that considers the necessities of different associates to plan the best education encounters required to close the hole among information and application, or ability and capability, along these lines upgrading employability.
Other than these efforts, there is a growing trend onto a more comprehensive perspective to employment growth, which involves incorporating the advancement of student personality characteristics into the academic curriculum.
ConclusionGreat educational planning will enable students interested in developing numerous skillful activities, or 'abilities,' by supporting them in growing perceptions of an issue. Though students come from different family environments, living areas and cultures and they may have varied skill levels, still, they can be cultivated to enrich their skills and knowledge through proper education. In my opinion, the natural wind may not favor at all times, but the smart way is to adjust our sails to reach our destination. For a better yield, the seed, field and method of cultivation have to be good.
