The Institution maintains the democratic and conducive working environment for the staff to implement their own ideas and creativity. This gives them opportunity to explore the newer ideas and strategies and try them out during curriculum transaction. The entire curriculum is researched by teaching staff through brainstorming to identify the connections and correlations between the theory papers and also between theory and practicum. This helps the teacher to avoid unnecessary repetition due to overlapping and make curriculum transaction more meaningful and holistic in nature.
Facilitating learning of the syllabus course through inquiry:
Staff members use different research based strategies and methods like flipped classroom, Cooperative learning, and other problem based learning, seminars etc. that requires lot of inquiry to the problem or challenge posed. Such contextual learning using constructivist helps student-teachers to develop understanding of the content through self-inquiry and also to use it in their practice-teaching. Online learning too is used by training students in the application of different software to create learning resources which requires research skills like exploring, designing and implementation.
Different workshops conducted for students culminate in the product based learning. This ensures application of theory in developing learning resources, presentations.
The interviews taken in the school of children of special abilities are collated by teachers and common characteristics and efforts that schools take towards their better inclusion are analyzed. These outcomes are connected with the theory course thereby making learning more meaningful.
The visits are organized to different places that help students understand the theory content included in the syllabus.
Students’ feedback to the staff teachers on their performance also is analyzed to find out the drawbacks and make efforts for further improvement in their teaching –learning process.
The Institution thus motivates staff to relate theory with the research activities using exploratory and experimental research methods during students’ Internship period.
