Salute to toppers of year

Dolphin man and senior zoology teacher of Patna University R.K. Sinha and Magadh Mahila College principal Dolly Sinha were among five felicitated as best teachers of the year year at the function organised by Patna University.

At a function organised by Patna University (PU) at Wheeler Senate Hall on Wednesday, the varsity felicitated its five role model teachers, who were selected by the varsity on the basis of a two-tier assessment — teacher excellence and students’ evaluation. The other teachers, who were felicitated were senior mathematics teacher at BN College B.G. Prasad, senior geography teacher K.N. Paswan and Persian department senior teacher Ghaffar Siddiqui.

Speaking at the felicitation function, vice-chancellor (VC) Shambhu Nath Singh said: “We have tried to select teachers for their contribution to the university. At the same time, teachers who were not selected should not feel dejected. They might be felicitated some time later in future.”

The teachers were selected on the basis of feedback provided by the students in choosing their role model apart from the committee constituted by the varsity to select the best teachers. The VC, however, accepted that students were not counselled properly about mechanism for selecting the best teachers. The varsity administration this year introduced online process of selecting best teacher under which a student had to fill an online form giving his or her preference about the teachers.

The VC said: “PU has the best teachers as compared other universities.”

Bharti S. Kumar, dean, social sciences, said: “Respect for teachers cannot be demanded, it must be earned as said by S. Radhakrishnan, the second president of India.”
