The International Institute of Information Technology (Hyderabad), the first IIIT to be set up in the country, will teach Principals and other stakeholders in collegiate education the importance of human values in higher education.

“With the focus of education only on the external things, students tend to join a blind race for wealth, position and jobs,” a spokesperson of IIIT said here on Tuesday.

The institute will hold a workshop on November 26 in association with the Telangana Government.

“We have made demonstrable efforts in IIIT in introducing human values during the past 10 years, which has resulted in tangible improvements in the perception, behaviour and attitude towards academics and the profession among students,” he said.

About 500 colleges, including 126 Government and 300 private colleges, under 13 universities have introduced a course on human values. About 1,000 teachers teach around 1.60 lakh courses.

About 1,000 Principals from different colleges in Telangana will attend the workshop.
