Noted scientists, academicians agree to teach under GIAN
Scholars recruited through the GIAN initiative will be paid anything between $8,000 and $12,000 for a contact programme of up to 28 hours. Each of these lectures will also be available online.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet education project to rope in eminent scholars from abroad to teach at Centrally-funded institutions has elicited a response from the likes of Sheldon Pollock, David Shulman and Judith Butler. The HRD ministry is in the process of recruiting as many as 200 scientists and academicians under the Global Initiative of Academic Network or GIAN, a
short-term teaching programme that will be launched by the PM next month.
