Two Day Workshop on Innovative Methods of Teaching for Pre-Service Teachers

Under MHRD scheme, Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya Mission on Teachers &  Teaching (PMMMNMTT)




Teachers are at the heart of our education system. The success of any effort to improve the quality of education is centrally dependent upon the teacher. Quality issues in education are crucially linked to quality issues in teacher education.

An innovative environment is one that is capable of evolving and adapting as educational practices evolve and change. A learning environment includes the physical, social, and pedagogical context in which learning occurs. The practice of effective and meaningful teaching can benefit immensely when educators thoughtfully experiment and apply new or different pedagogical approaches, technologies, curricular enhancement, course design and organization, and assessments.

Accordingly in teaching as a profession there are various guidelines, principles, norms of morality. Innovation in education encourages teachers and students to explore, research and use all the tools to uncover something new. It involves a different way of looking at problems and solving them. Innovation improves education because it compels students to use a higher level of thinking to solve problems.

Therefore a teacher has to be realistic, committed and well equipped with different methods and techniques in teaching profession so as to have a multidimensional approach.
