About The Book
Quality education can be defined as an outcome which includes knowledge, attitudes, and skills that are connected to national goals for education and productive citizenship. As a multi-dimensional concept, quality in higher education looks at the quality of a whole institution through its inputs, processes, outcomes, and contextual indicators. In order to address the concerns linked to access, equity, quality, and employability, Indian higher education has undergone numerous stages of transition. The higher education system must accord priority to create a system that can deliver quality in terms of a skilled, competent, and employable workforce while simultaneously putting an emphasis on world-class research and innovation. In India, the quality of higher education institutions is monitored by accrediting bodies such as the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and the National Board of Accreditation (NBA). Several quality indicators have been developed on academic and administrative aspects of the functioning of higher education institutions as well as the emerging issues in the context of education. This book ‘Quality Indicators in Higher Education’ will be a good resource to comprehensively identify and empower higher educational institutions to craft a roadmap of sustainable and robust quality practices in their day-to-day functioning.

In Chapter 8, Dr. Sonia Sharma and Piyali Sarkar explain the models of blended learning for institutional implementation to enable the students to learn and achieve. Furthermore, they discuss the barriers to effective implementation of blending learning as a pedagogical strategy in the teaching-learning process. In Chapter 9, Dr. R.S.
