The present paper explores the need and scope of Pedagogies in the domain of higher education. Pedagogy is often a neglected sphere when it comes to higher education, where more attention is given to the mastery over the content, concepts, skills & training. But, a question often raised is, can the learning outcomes be realised effectively without a sound pedagogy? Often, in professional and technical courses (vocational education), the focus is more on skill development and training by an expert in the field. It is being envisioned in the UGC’s report on Higher Education that Indian graduates should not only be competent in their scholastic achievements, rather , they need to be also grounded in their value systems and richness of personality. This requires a transformation of the pedagogy and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) to bring about quality learning experiences that aims for the holistic development of individuals
