India is being increasingly recognized as a knowledge power house which can supply value added, trained nnanpower delivering superior performance. The face of globalization has now turned towards liberalizing and promoting free trade in the services sector vis-a-vis education sector, through the implementation of GATS. This is going to place a great demand on the Indian Higher Education system in terms of quality. Institutions of higher learning therefore have a major responsibility in building quality by imparting knowledge, development of skill and improving the intellectual capabilities of its learners. To achieve this, strong commitment among all the stakeholders is a must. The teacher plays a pivotal role of all the stakeholders in contributing towards building quality. The teacher is the prime interface between the learner and the environment. A good teacher can create all the necessary impact on the learner even in the absence of required learning resources or the ambience, but even with the modern teaching technology and the world of resources available to the learner a bad teacher can mar the entire benefit of such facilities. This paper aims to project the role of teacher in building quality in higher education. An attempt has been made to project the Human Resource Management perspective to the process of managing teachers by the various colleges and universities. Teachers have to be looked at as intellectual assets of the organisation who are the major contributors to the value and brand of the colleges. Hence managing teachers as human assets through processes, like recruibnent and selection, induction, training and retraining, quality of work life and performance management are highlighted. Finally a profile of a good teacher has been given.

Abstract


India is being increasingly recognized as a knowledge power house which can supply value added, trained nnanpower delivering superior performance. The face of globalization has now turned towards liberalizing and promoting free trade in the services sector vis-a-vis education sector, through the implementation of GATS. This is going to place a great demand on the Indian Higher Education system in terms of quality. Institutions of higher learning therefore have a major responsibility in building quality by imparting knowledge, development of skill and improving the intellectual capabilities of its learners. To achieve this, strong commitment among all the stakeholders is a must. The teacher plays a pivotal role of all the stakeholders in contributing towards building quality. The teacher is the prime interface between the learner and the environment. A good teacher can create all the necessary impact on the learner even in the absence of required learning resources or the ambience, but even with the modern teaching technology and the world of resources available to the learner a bad teacher can mar the entire benefit of such facilities. This paper aims to project the role of teacher in building quality in higher education. An attempt has been made to project the Human Resource Management perspective to the process of managing teachers by the various colleges and universities. Teachers have to be looked at as intellectual assets of the organisation who are the major contributors to the value and brand of the colleges. Hence managing teachers as human assets through processes, like recruibnent and selection, induction, training and retraining, quality of work life and performance management are highlighted. Finally a profile of a good teacher has been given.
