As a faculty of DIET, you are aware that ICT in general and E-media in particular have entered school and teacher education in a big way. Not only does the governments want the potential of E-media to be exploited for addressing the issues of elementary education, the private players have entered the field and are investing huge amount of money. It is in this background that you must be able to respond to the challenges of using ICT and E-media as effective tools of education. This section provides you with some of the basic possibilities and know how regarding E-media.

Why this project?

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 Junior 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.

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. It may have awareness inputs, attitudinal inputs and competency development inputs.The induction programme for DIET faculty, therefore, would provide inputs necessary for a person to perform functions expected of him/her in a DIET.
