We know that one of the most important functions of education is to mold the soul as well as to inform the intellect. Rethinking education, in the light of knowledge based economy and Industry 4.0 revolution, requires that we ask the right questions. I believe that one question we must ask is how to improve learner productivity.

Perhaps all of the stakeholders of higher education are caught in a paradigm paralysis: We have difficulty changing the way we think and the way we behave. What fundamental changes are we making in our educational system to handle the doubling of knowledge through New Draft Education Policy? This paradigm paralysis does not exist just on campuses. In fact, it may exist because of the administrative structures we have inherited.
