TIRUCHI: From the level of a welfare activity, education has assumed significance as an investment for present and future, the Vice-Chancellor of Tamil Nadu Teachers Education University, T. Padmanaban, said, addressing the first Graduation Day celebrations of Vekkaliyamman College of Education, here recently.

Higher education must also constitute intellectual exploration and creativity, acting as a fertile ground for experimenting new ideas and techniques, and inculcating values. Knowledge revolution warrants learner-oriented syllabus, transition to global education, widening the reach of higher education, quality assurance, expansion of study opportunities for foreign students, and conversion of knowledge to wealth.

Whatever be the profession, one needs to keep abreast of the latest developments to feel confident to face challenges of modern times, he said.
