The key resource person in her deliberation stated that at present the primary motivation of higher education institutions is to raise teaching quality via the development and sharing of good practices. While higher education graduates are more likely to find employment than people with lower levels of qualifications, higher education curricula are often slow to respond to changing needs in the wider economy, and fail to anticipate or help shape the careers of tomorrow. Quality assurance in higher education has become a burning issue in this respect. She donated her honorarium from the workshop to the underprivileged students of DIU.

All the guests and participants underscored the need for ensuring quality in higher education and discussed the possible ways to do that. They also opined going for both national and international higher education accreditation. Among others, Deans of different faculties, Additional Director of IQAC, Heads of different departments, members of self assessment committees and IQAC officials were present in the workshop.
