My Dear Students,
“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all”.
India has a large number of teachers and it needs many more. The process of teacher education is that training, motivation, recruitment, incentives, retention and feedback. Therefore, we have to be planned on a large scale in order to strengthen the standard of the teacher training processes in our country. Further, the ultimate goal of teacher education is to train the student-teacher and development of modules and teaching strategies and also it should be ensure the optimum level of learning which takes place normally in the classrooms.
Teacher education refers to the policies and procedures designed to equip prospective teachers with the knowledge, attitudes, behaviours and skills they require to perform their tasks effectively in the classroom, school and wider community. Teaching involves the use of a wide body of knowledge about the subject being taught, and another set of knowledge about the most effective ways to teach that subject to different kinds of learner; it therefore requires teachers to undertake a complex set of tasks every minute.
Hence, we suggest that teacher education should be inclusive and take into account multiple backgrounds and variables to allow teachers to be responsive to the requirements of their students. This falls into the area of culturally responsive teaching and requires teaching education and teachers to address issues of diversity education and disadvantage as part of a teacher education curriculum that this is an essential process in helping students of ethnicity, colour and diversity achieve and attain.
Teachers are the nation builders and are considered to be the pillars of a developing country. “A teacher’s purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image”. It is said that “in the second decade of the 21st century. Teacher education has an enormous role to play in the Social, Intellectual, and Moral and in general transmission of the world. Hence, professional teacher preparation is the need of the hour. The aim of Indira Gandhi College of Education is to prepare quality teachers suitable to future needs of the country.
