Indian Languages in Indian Higher Education

A report of a consultation on the key issues in strengthening the presence of Indian languages in higher education, formulating initiatives for innovative curriculum design, production of raw materials, teacher training and resource aggregation.

On 27-28 July 2012, a gathering of social sciences and humanities teachers and researchers, librarians and digital technology experts met in Mumbai to discuss the feasibility and modalities of a multi-institutional project that would engage with Indian languages in the higher education space. Some of them had been part of a group that prepared a policy note for the Planning Commission for integration into the 12th Plan document, suggesting measures to strengthen the presence of Indian languages in higher education, including the setting up of a National Mission on Quality Education in the Indian Languages.1 The consultation was aimed at arriving at a consensus on the key issues to be addressed, and formulating initiatives for innovative curriculum design, production of new materials, teacher training, and resource aggregation.
