1 November 2017

Mr Richard L. Kauffman, Chairman of Energy and Finance for New York State, USA interacted with the students of Schools of Law and Engineering at Kathmandu University today on the changing scenario of energy development and their implications.

On the occasion, Mr Robert Taylor, who is the Team Leader of USAID-funded Nepal Hydropower Development Project (NHDP) gave a presentation to the students on evolution of the electricity sector. 


Mr Taylor emphasized that electricity sector evolution happens the same way everywhere, and there is an evolutionary time line and every country has a spot on it.  He pointed out that the time line has a number of phases. This includes concession, nationalization and monopoly, decline and fall, search for new investment, opening the sector through restructuring, reforms and regulation, and maturation and adaptation to new technologies. He gave a picture of where Nepal is on that time line and described how it is moving forward and picking up speed. 

Mr Taylor ended his presentation on a high note: "there will never be a more exciting time to be involved with Nepal’s power sector. The students in engineering and law will have a gigantic role to play to help the sector speed up the evolution."

Building on Mr Taylor's presentation, Mr Richard Kauffman gave a presentation on the challenges the State of New York is facing in meeting its renewable energy mandates and how the model will have to change yet again to accommodate renewables in the mix. He spoke about the diverse set of policy actions taken by New York State to remake its energy system, both by altering state-level energy regulatory structure, and by simultaneously providing evolving support for clean energy research, finance, and deployment.

Presently, Mr Kauffman leads New York State’s "Reforming the Energy Vision" (REV) initiative, which has the stated goal of creating "a cleaner, more affordable, more modern and more efficient energy system in New York, through the increased development of distributed energy resources, like rooftop solar, energy efficiency, and battery storage."

The programme was kicked off by Mr Kalyan Shrestha, former chief justice of Nepal with his presentation on the economic implications of judicial reforms in Nepal. He shared his thoughts with the students and faculties on how the recent effort to reform judiciary in Nepal is contributing to efficiency and rule of law in the economic sector.

Mr Kauffman and Mr Taylor also had a brief chat on the occasion with Vice Chancellor Dr Ram Kantha Makaju shrestha, Registrar Professor Bhola Thapa, Dean of School of Science Professor Subodh Sharma, and Dean of School of Engineering Professor Bhupendra Bimal Chhetri.

The programme was facilitated by KUSL Dean Dr Bipin Adhikari and Assistant Professor of Law Mr Shiva Prasad Paudel on behalf of Economic Law and Sub-national Governance Clinic at School of Law.

University Edition of Promotional Event for Startup Weekend Held

isms | 02 November, 2017 14:42

On 29th October 2017 a team of student volunteers of Kathmandu University organized a promotional event for Startup Weekend Kathmandu: University Edition. The event was held in CV Raman Auditorium, Kathmandu University, Dhulikhel.


The speakers of the event were Asst. Professor of School of Management Mr. Rupesh Krishna Shrestha and founding member of Nepal Entrepreneurs’ Hub Mr. Karmath Dangol. Both the speakers talked mostly about the Startup Weekend and the benefits of being a part of it. Also, students from the organizing team briefed the participants about the event, its main highlights and motivated them to bring forward their ideas by applying to the event. They shared their insights regarding the importance of Startups and entrepreneurship with the audience that almost filled the auditorium, and answered questions that students in the audience asked later on.

Startup Weekends are 54-hour long events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, build products and launch startups. Teams go from an idea scrawled on a napkin to a working prototype and maybe even paying customers, all within a single weekend. Startup Weekends are a global phenomenon with events being held in 1000+ cities across the world. In Nepal alone, NEHUB has held 10 Startup Weekends with over 550 participants. This is the first time Startup Weekend is being held for university level students. The event is set for Nov 10, 11 and 12, and will be held in Kathmandu University School of Management (KUSOM) premises, Balkumari. The deadline to submit applications is the November 04, 2017 (Saturday). The students, faculty and alumni can apply to be a part of the event.

Dr. Luitel Got a Book Chapter Published

editorial | 31 October, 2017 19:44

Dr. Bal Chandra Luitel, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education, got a Chapter entitled "A Mindful Inquiry into Reductionism in Mathematics Education" published in Weaving Complementary Knowledge Systems and Mindfulness to Educate a Literate Citizenry for Sustainable and Healthy Lives, a book brought out by Sense Publishers.
The Chapter mainly discusses the problematic nature of reductionism as a key obstacle towards developing mathematics education in Nepal as an inclusive, agentic and meaning-centred enterprise of learning.  Two cultural-intellectual traditions – performativity and mindfulness – have enabled the author to explore meanings of reductionism as ideology, methodology, logic and history via narrative, poetic and reflective genres. The Chapter also involves an inquiry into the types of reductionism – systemic, curricular, pedagogic, and evaluative – widespread in Nepali mathematics education.
A free preview of the book can be found at:
