In today’s contemporary world, where students are not ready to let go of the screens, Apeejay College ensures to imbibe Guru Shishya tradition and make them understand the difference between right and wrong. On the auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima, Principal Dr. Neerja Dhingra expressing her views said that ,” In the past, disciples used to simply accept what their Guru preached but the scenario has changed in today’s time for now they have been equipped with various sources to gain knowledge from.
There is no doubt that this has eased up the process of learning but it has also created so much confusion for them as they don’t know which source is reliable and authentic and which cannot be dependent upon.
In such a situation, it becomes the responsibility of a teacher to teach them the difference between information and knowledge and help them to move in the right direction. She added that in today’s era, the role of a teacher has become even more important and challenging at the same time.
