Abdul Kalam believes that teachers have tremendous responsibility in shaping the life of individuals. 4

  10. 10. Three broad curricular areas identified are :  Foundations of Education – Learner studies, Contemporary studies, Educational studies.  Curriculum and pedagogy – curriculum studies and pedagogic studies.  School Internship – development of professional capabilities , sensitivities and skills.(NCFTE 2009, P. 24) 11
  11. 11. 1. Teacher Educators and School Education:  Engage would be teachers with the larger socio political context .  Bring into the Teacher Education curriculum and discourse trainees own assumptions and to reflect upon their own position.  Engage theory along with field experiences to view knowledge not as external but actively constructed during learning.  Provide opportunity for trainees for reflection and independent study. 12
  12. 12. 2. Stage specificity in the preparation of Teacher Educators  Generally those who function as teacher educators don’t possess stage specific professional training.  Paradox is teachers are trained for specific levels of schooling, teacher trainers are not.  It was taken granted that existing arrangements for teacher preparation at different stages would do as well for teacher educators as well.Ex. B.Ed. for E.T.E and M.Ed. For Sec. Teacher educators.  M.Ed. Degree cannot meet the requirements of primary teacher training unless it is redesigned to impart the needed focus. 13
  13. 13. 1. The curriculum and its pedagogy:  Focussed on student teacher and her behaviour.  Consider teaching as telling and explaining.  Focus should be on learning various pedagogic methods, but teacher educators don’t apply in classrooms.  (heavy curriculum) 14
  14. 14. 3. Evaluation  Based on exhibition of LP.  Negligible participation of school teachers.  Lack of process of assessment mapping the development of her ability to engage students during teaching. 15
  15. 15. 2. School Experience Programme  Actual experience in working in schools.  Trainees are expected to adjust to present school system.  Lack of coordination between trainees and school teachers in developing transaction plan.  Examining their bias and reflecting on their own experiences is not part of discourse.  No leisure interaction with children to understand them better. 16
  16. 16.  World Bank Report (1997) states , “ In India teachers need but do not receive preparation for teaching in the situation that two thirds of them have to face: multigrade classrooms with many first generation learners who attend school irregularly .” 17
  17. 17.  Defects of selection procedure.  Training Period and time period for teaching practice is very short.  All lessons taught by trainee are not observed.  No emphasis on knowledge of basic subject.  Concepts learned in terms of Philosophy Psychology and methods of teaching are not used at the time of practice teaching. 18
  18. 18.  Lack of professional attitude.  Lack of motivation and academic background for well deserved entry in to teaching profession.  30% of Teacher Education Institutes lack basic infrastructure.  Problem of unemployment. 19
  19. 19. 1. International Seminar on Pre Service Elementary Teacher Education- 2-4 Feb., 2010 at NCERT , Delhi.  Align preparation with the spirit of NCF, 2005 so that classrooms have happier and actively learning children.  Re-visit the quality of elementary teacher preparation programmes including curriculum, transaction and assessment.  Build networks amongst institutes, schools and resource institutes. 20
  20. 20.  Make pre – service teacher preparation part of higher education system. It should be a degree and not a certificate or diploma.  Work upon NCFTE which promotes teacher as the enabler of a positive learning environment rather than source of all knowledge. 21
  21. 21.  Modification of the current M.Ed. Programme to allow multiple entry points .  Teacher educators for pre primary, primary and secondary education need to have separate programmes for preparation.  2 year M.Ed. Elementary programme.  Current M.A./M.Sc. Programmes extended to include pedagogy courses and school experience component.  Teachers of the schools need to be trained in the concept of effective mentoring. 22
  22. 22.  Systematic admission procedure.  Teacher Aptitude Test should be there.  Teacher education curriculum should be upgraded.  B.Ed.programmes have become weak in theory and practice, so its duration should be increased into two years.  School Internship should be increased to six months. 23
  23. 23.  NCFTE 2009 promises to translate the vision into reality and prepare humanistic and reflective teachers that has potential to develop ,more professional teachers and improve the quality of education.  Teacher educators should be able to engage in thinking and reflection and be committed to continuous learning and development of their knowledge to keep abreast of latest researches, innovations and improvement in process of education. 24
