Talent management of academic staff: professional development of teachers in higher educational institutes in Uttar Pradesh


Ravi Kumar Sharma

A nation is built to a large extent in its educational institutions - in its classrooms, laboratories, libraries and playing fields. Educational institutes not only produce highly skilled and enlightened manpower needed for the political, economic and social transformation and development of our country but also shoulder the responsibility of lending dynamism, resourcefulness and intellectuality to it.
The teacher is the backbone of the educational system, the maker of mankind and the architect of society. A nation grows with the teachers and with the education imparted to the people. It is in this respect that the role of the teachers acquires significance in shaping society and in bringing revolutionary changes in the development of the country.
In current scenario every thing is changing weather it is the nature of our economy or the currency. The educational scenario is also changing rapidly and these days it has shifted to professional degrees (MBA, B.Tech.) rather than traditional degrees (BA, B.Sc.). The faculty members are facing new challenges every day because the flavor, syllabus, need and demand of the educational sector is changing by each passing academic year. If they have to cope up successfully with these challenges they have to provide professional development opportunities. Because if the faculty members will not develop themselves they would not be able to face the challenges that will come their way.
After faculty talent acquisition, talent development of faculty members is the next most important issue for any professional institution. At the faculty level, each faculty brings a unique set of skills. Where a good faculty talent is already rare and people with requisite skills and experience are difficult to find, faculty development becomes a critical component for professional institutions.
