Islamabad—Two PhD scholars, who received their degrees in the United States with the US government assistance, have their experiences here at an event. In total, the US government through the US Agency for International Development (USAID) funded 35 scholars to receive their PhD degrees in education. Upon graduation, the scholars returned to Pakistan to serve as faculty members at the universities, said a press release. The two scholars discussed the gap between traditional Pakistani teaching practices and internationally standardized teaching methodologies promoted in their PhD programmes. They expressed their commitment to use their training to improve the quality of education instruction and curriculum development in Pakistan. They discussed the value of the “multiplier effect model,” where academic leaders unleashed the genius of their students and colleagues.
