Academic Year 2013-14

This academic year the efforts for Faculty Development were as follows;

  •  Faculty Forum; The Forum presented a platform for the teacher educators to share the Action Research Projects of the student teachers that they were guiding. This gave an opportunity for greater learning in research not only for the presenter but also for the other attending staff members. The objective of the exercise was to have intellectual deliberations on research to enhance understanding and enrich any further research endeavour.
  •  Study Circle; Gopal Midha from TISS conducted a study circle on the article titled ‘Motivation’ for the in-house faculty. The discussion was very fruitful and stimulated analytical thinking, informed reflection and practice among the staff.
  •  Roundtable Consultation; This was an enlightening session organized by the Institution in collaboration with Observer Research Foundation on ‘Teacher Education: Enhancing Quality and Relevance’. The objective of the session was to highlight the need for a renewed understanding of teacher preparation courses in the light of various Commissions, Reports and Acts. Prof. Anita Rampal from Delhi University threw light upon the Justice Verma Committee Report, the RTE Act, the NCFTE and their implications on the B.Ed. programme. The session highlighted the need to encourage Constructivist Approaches to teaching and also a renewed look at the Internship Program.
  •  An Interaction session was organized between the teacher educators of the Institute and Dr. Subramaniam from Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) and his team. The HBCSE team and the in-house faculty of the Institute made presentations on their respective areas of focus.
