I see the following refreshing change in the faculty professional lives 🙂
a) a definitely more competitive environment due to 100 top foreign institutes moving in. It would afford opportunities to the bright faculty to switch to the much greener pastures 🙂
b) self-skilling and up-skilling would be essential to teach vocational courses, hereinafter essential in every HE. You will gain new skills and have more opportunities 🙂
c) added opportunities for multi-disciplinary teaching, a subject of your passion since every institute would eventually turn multi-disciplinary 🙂
d) freedom to fix fee with justification, will give a bandwidth to institutes to charge added fee, which in turn would hopefully result in a hike in the faculty salary, if the same is passed on to faculty 🙂
(e) GER 50% perspective target would create more opportunities for the ODL programs, hence more teaching options. A quality public institute per district and a much larger annual budget outlay will need more experienced teachers like you for the upcoming institutes 🙂
(f) increased benefit of faculty exchange and collaborative research with 100 foreign institutes and their labs 🙂
