Rabindranath Tagore


Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high

Where knowledge is free

Where the world has not been broken up into fragments By narrow domestic walls

Where words come out from the depth of truth

Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection

Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way

Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit

Where the mind is led forward by thee

Into ever-widening thought and action

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake

....Rabindranath Tagore

This is a collaborative effort of the Regional Institute of Education, Mysore and the Department of Pre-University Education, Bangalore to provide in-service professional development inputs for the lecturers of the P U Colleges in Karnataka. This need was primarily felt by the department since the existing recruitment rules do not make a professional degree in teaching mandatory for becoming a lecturer. It is also true that the existing Bachelor of Education programme does not cater to the requirements of a P U lecturer since it is primarily aimed at preparation of secondary school teachers

It is felt that the lecturers at the +2 level have diverse needs for in-service professional development. Broadly they may be classified as 'Content Enrichment' and 'Training in Methodology of Teaching'. This programme is visualised as a generic training in methodology of teaching at P U level. However, where ever possible, illustrations would be provided from the subjects taught at the P U level.

What is an Induction Programme?

In-service teacher education programmes are of various kinds. 'Induction programme', 'Orientation programme', 'Refresher programme', etc. An induction programme is that programme which provides inputs necessary for a person to start performing certain functions expected of him/her in a particular occupation. It may have awareness inputs, attitudinal inputs and competency development inputs.The induction programme for P U Lecturers, therefore, would provide inputs necessary for a person to perform functions expected of him/her in a pre-university college.

Who Needs an Induction Programme?

An Induction Programme is needed for a person who is new to a nature of work. For example, a lecturer of P U College needs induction training if he has never worked in a P U College, is newly appointed and is not having a previous experience of performing those functions expected of a lecturer. In a way it is an initiation in to an occupation. Even though an induction programme is provided to a lecturer who is new to the P U College, a faculty member on transfer or promotion from some other level or sector may also benefit from induction training. In other words, it is not the age alone or recency of recruitment which decides who needs an induction programme.

The Modality Followed

The programme inputs for this induction programme are developed jointly by the faculty of the Regional Institute of Education, Mysore the staff of the Department of PU Education, Bangalore and other experts drawn from University IASE, and CTE. The first training is provided in a face-to-face modality to a batch of Master Trainers drawn from various P U Colleges who in turn are to provide training to the lecturers at the district level. The schedule of this training is provided below. The programme is coordinated by Professor Vasant D. Bhat of RIE, Mysore and Shri Mohan Kumar of the Department of P U Education. Information about the other team members can be found in the section The Facilitators .

  2. The programme envisages that the verbal inputs in the form of modules will not be printed owing to the high cost of printing and the difficulties faced in correcting misstakes in print or revising the material on a regular basis.
  3. This programme will have its inputs available on the web and will be open soource along with the linkages to other authentic material available on the web.
