Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Promoting Equity and Inclusion // Policy documents in India, most notably National Education Policy 2020, emphasize that the higher education sector may aim for achieving three Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly tenth (reduced inequalities), fifth (gender equality), and fourth (quality education). But this is not an easy task in a country like India, having socio-cultural, economic, and geographical diversities. Fortunately, the higher education sector can use emerging technologies to promote equity, inclusion, and quality in higher education. And policy documents are vital to set the directions and facilitate the adoption and use of technologies in higher education. Accordingly, this research identifies and analyses the key policy documents from the government of India and its organizations discussing technologies for higher education. This research further identifies gaps in policy documents while recommending technologies for ensuring equity, inclusion, and quality in higher education. Based on the analysis, the study also provides a few suggestions for policymakers. // Paper ID 3098
