Implementing The Proposal For Higher-Order Cognition In University Curricula

By K P Mohanan, Tara Mohanan, and Vigneshwar Ramakrishnan

The National Education Policy 2020 recommends that University curricula include a strand

of education that aims at Higher-Order Cognitive Capacities (HOCC). Following up on this

on HOCC might look like and what it would aim at.
