Readers’ Response:

“The conversation between Ruchi Kaushik and Prof. Richard Allen (in FORTELL Issue 30, Jan 2015) discusses the extremely pertinent issue of distance learning, its increasing popularity as well as challenges, especially in the Indian context. The conversation is thought provoking and enables one to visualize how technology can be made to serve the cause of quality higher education and thus empowerment of the masses in India. I would like to appreciate FORTELL for generating discourse, through its timely publications, around extremely pertinent issues around not just literature, but also language, not just mainstream but also alternative learning programs, not just pedagogy but also methodology.”

“The Jan 2015 issue of Fortell covers a vast canvas: classroom strategies, communication skills, interpreting texts from different genres etc. Most of the articles deal with emergent issues that we face as communicators and researchers in the Academic world. Perhaps it would be a good idea to focus on particular teaching/classroom experiences where the challenges encountered by academics are negotiated with. In other words, more practical working knowledge and less theorising would be appropriate.”
