Dr. V. SUMATHY
The globalization and denationalization of the tutoring system in different countries and in India forced the higher education to be more competent so as to produce the participants with better understanding, accommodativeness, skills and competencies which are essential for survival in the world market. In tune with this, the Indian education system had undergone rapid changes in terms of development, privatization, marketization, curricular reforms and instructive innovations. These changes have confronted the universities in terms of quality teaching, shortage of faculty of high ability, ineffective teaching methods, outdated curriculum and evaluation system, lack of suitable reading materials, poor set-up facilities, faulty administration, faculty admission criteria, inability to attract and retain talented minds and absence of academically conducive atmosphere. Further, the increasing role frolicked by latest knowledge, services, innovation and research in economic growth and development, the emergence of the information society and the need for quality education results in enlarged pressure on the advanced education system and teachers in particular. These factors in-turn unfavorably affects the quality of our education system and creates various stressors and strain in teachers which further declines their presentation.
