Role and Need of Research in Higher Education

Riya Goel, Department of Management, Kalinga University, Raipur

Higher education research is significant because it affects policies and practices that may enhance the quality of education and the overall experience of students. Three important aspects are driving forces for higher education change. These are the ingredients;

  1. Massification
  2. Diversification
  3. Research.

       Massification refers to better access to higher education for the masses around the world. Higher education is no longer just for the wealthy; it is now both a right and a necessity for the majority of people in nations that are developing. It is a bottom-up demand that cannot be regulated or enforced by governments.

       The diversification of topics studied in higher education is increasing in tandem with development activities that focus on satisfying society’s and humanity’s future needs.

       The third component requires the formation of newer information to continue society’s growth initiatives.

Students become more self-sufficient as a result of research.

There are numerous advantages to participating in research study as a university student. The research process helps learners grow more self-sufficient. With a more practical comprehensive look into the subject matter under investigation, students enhance their ability to ferret out expertise on a certain topic. The academic experience of performing research assists students to see current debates on a given issue. Scholars’ coherence and disparity on a particular subject could potentially be identified.

Research can help higher education decision-makers by giving recommendations based on evidence for procedures and regulations that can improve student outcomes and the overall quality of education. Research can also aid in the detection of areas of need as well as chances for creativity and growth.

Universities do research as part of their educational and investigation goals. This, in turn, both directly and indirectly provides for their main goal of educating. Scholarship is an important aspect of the mission of universities and many schools. This can take the shape of fundamental or applied research (both of which are most prevalent in STEM areas in general), research-based scholarship, or what is often referred to as “scholarly activity” (most prevalent in the fields of social science and humanities), or innovative thinking (most common in the arts).

Research is the basis for learning for understanding, as well as an essential resource for providing guidelines or requirements for solving various social, business, or government issues.
