Skill Development through Higher Education

Dr Rintu Saikia | Meghali Borah

Abstract: Everybody knows it is impossible to learn to ride a bicycle by reading a book. It needs practice, and that perfection of learning to ride a bicycle which one obtains through dedicated practice and labour, is the skill which cannot be achieved by any other means. Likewise skill development is not an easily obtainable talent of any human being. The skill of perfection which our forefathers obtained in their crafts or handicrafts were not attained by sudden awakening. It was only through constant practice, perfection was attained. One may talk of Leonardo, Mozart, Raphael, Galileo, Alva Edisonetc. leads one to think about the gifted or the inborn talent which they acquired in fulfilling their art, but one never gets into the insights of the stress of constant labour and dedication which they overcame in becoming what they were. Thus skills are not developed, but obtained through a constant process of sincerity, devotion, hard work and constrained study towards the activity on which anyone is engaged. How to develop these characteristics in the students while pursuing a degree in Higher Education would be stressed in this paper. Also how to induce, utilizing individual talents of the students in higher education through motivating, facilitating, and inspiring by providing a proper environment of growth such that when they are out of college they are accepted by the society as a source of wisdom would also be looked into.
