About the Department

“Academics are the strongest exponents of the argument that research and teaching are central to their work and its value.”
-Henkel

The aim of the M Ed Department is to offer learning opportunities through variety of means and in a range of contexts. It has sustained a culture of innovation in its academic, research and extension activities. It has been consistently harnessing innovations to strengthen its research initiatives. Outstanding faculty members involve in planning, preparing, transacting and evaluating curriculum in different modes suitable for learning. We engage our students in group discussions, debate, seminars, carrying out field based internship in schools and colleges of education, observations during practice teaching, conduct yoga to the students of the co-operative schools, psychology practicals, publish research papers in journals, participating and presenting papers in various National and International conferences etc. Additional classes and mock tests are conducted with a view to help them in NET, SET examinations and make them competent to pass other competitive examinations. E-resources like INFLIBNET-NLIST and Shodhganga not only cater to the academic demands of students but also improves the personality development, interview techniques, debating skills, and leadership qualities. Students are encouraged to take up online courses in MOOCS and are provided with additional inputs for better career planning and exposure.

The research policy of the department aims to create and support a research culture among faculty and students for enriching and enhancing professional competency. Researchers are encouraged to undertake socially relevant innovative research. Research programmes focus on social issues, psychological issues, environmental protection and so on. Research Colloquium and Workshops were conducted regularly to enhance the progress of the research work. The teacher educators and students participate and present papers in Conferences /Seminars /Workshops /Training /FDPs conducted by other institutions. This helps them to understand the current research scenario and get acquainted with their scientific peers to keep abreast of the research activities.

In addition to these, the department facilitates research activities and creates research culture within the Institution by motivating the faculty to apply for sponsored minor research projects. The faculty members of our department have received research grants from the management to undertake minor projects.
