Our survival chance is to focus

on reducing poverty.

2. RP’s adaptive potential

Indicated by S&T performance

and National progress

S&T performance is measured by number

of papers published in peer-reviewed international journals (valid publication).

Or ISI-indexed or covered in:

Science Citation Index(3,770 journals)

Social Sciences Citation Index (2,700)

Arts and Humanities Citation Index (1,470)

Low percentages

of properly published studies

National progress

New teaching methodsTo understand the effects of vital issues like climate change, innovativeeducation will play a critical role.
  • Innovative STEM teaching in the US.

Entire department is the unit of change.

  • Inquiry-based science education in EU.
  • E-textbook: Online teaching & learning.

Developing research universities

For training faculty of other universities,

which in turn will provide better prepared teachers at secondary and primary levels.

  • Features
  • The principal criterion of faculty
  • recruitment & promotion is research.
  • Emphasis is graduate education.
teaching and research the relationship between the two has long been established
Teaching and researchThe relationship between the two has long been established.
  • The two are positively correlated — teaching effectiveness benefits from research activity.
  • Research and teaching as joint activity is central to the idea of the modern university.
  • These two activities are so mutually reinforcing that they must coexist in the same institutions.

PhD vs publication

Graduate degree: indicator of capability.

Valid publication: indicator ofperformance.

  • The key is valid publication for the:
    • Evaluator to do evaluation
    • Proponent to get research grant
    • Researcher to get recognition
    • PhD student to get the degree
    • etc.
concluding statements
Concluding statements

Other public expenditure can be postponed,

but delaying measures to mitigate climate impacts “is a high-risk, high-cost option.”

Decisions on appointments, funding, and performance should be based on objective assessment.

We should be prepared and do what must be done. We hardly have better alternatives.
