Strengthening Teacher Education

Author Name: Dr. Arun.K.Gupta | Format: Paperback | Genre : Others | Other Details

Ever since the New Policy of Education (NPE) came into force in the year 1986 in India, there has been a wide spread criticism at all levels against the prevailing system of teacher preparation in India. Several stakeholders of the teacher education system have raised their voices against the low quality of training and teacher preparation in the colleges of education. The mushroom growth of colleges of education in the country with insufficient infrastructure, deficient faculties, low quality of teaching-learning process, malpractices and the inability of the statutory bodies to manage, control and reform the system, resulted in a chaotic situation. Ultimately, the Supreme Court of India intervened and directed the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) to increase the duration of teacher education programmes from one to two years and also revise curricula for these courses. The present book includes a collection of scholarly papers in which the learned contributors have covered diverse themes concerning different aspects of the Teacher Education Programme as modified by the NCTE. This book attempts to provide a roadmap for improving and strengthening the effectiveness of the modified system of teacher education, especially at the B.Ed. level by emphasizing the roles of research, training, better infrastructural facilities, innovative practices and multi-pronged strategies to improve the quality of both teacher educators and teacher trainees. The need to embed quality assurance in the functioning of teacher education institutions has also been amply highlighted in this book. The book, therefore, can be considered as a valuable addition to the scanty literature on the subject which is a center of discussion in academic circles today. The present volume should prove useful to the practitioners of education, teacher educators, colleges of education, researchers as well as students of teacher education at all levels.
