The B.Ed.-M.Ed. Innovative Programme is a new three-year programme of study, with entry and exit options, to prepare educators for school pedagogy (English language, Science, Mathematics and Social Sciences). It includes additional coursework leading to specialisation in curriculum studies, education development and policy, inclusive education and ICT and new media. The programme has received recognition from the NCTE WRC.
The programme is designed to prepare educators to work as adaptive experts and transformative intellectuals. This is in response to the need for quality teacher education which can develop educators with a strong motivation and commitment to working in the sector as well as deep professional knowledge that empowers them to understand the curriculum and social context. It takes a holistic approach to curriculum design and pedagogy. The unique features of the programme are as follows-
The entire programme is spread over three years divided into 6 semesters, with an exit option after the first two years with a B.Ed degree and entry option at the beginning of the second year for M.Ed. degree. The medium of instruction is English. Students are required to write their assignments, reports, and examination in English language.
The entire three-year B.Ed. M.Ed. programme has a total of 112 credits. The two-year B.Ed programme has a total of 72 credits and The two-year M.Ed programme has a total of 72 credits.
All three programmes include foundation courses, education courses, and advanced specialization courses. An additional ‘School Internship’ component is exclusive to the two-year B.Ed. programme. The students of two-year M.Ed. will have to mandatorily choose ‘Teacher Education’ as one of the advanced optional. In
addition to the above mentioned courses, the three-year B.Ed-M.Ed and the two-year M.Ed. students will have optional advanced specialization (OADC) courses from a range of possibilities to develop competence in areas of curriculum and material development, education policy, inclusive education, ICT and new media, along with teacher education.
The programme integrates content and pedagogy along with education theory to develop professional identity and capability of educators as subject experts, with knowledge of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment and diverse uses of media and technology. It integrates education theory and practice through a historical, psychological, sociological, and philosophical understanding of a subject along with the social context of schools and learners. Professionals are prepared to proactively engage with and reinvigorate the institutional contexts and work inclusively to achieve education for all. On successful completion of the B.Ed.-M.Ed. programme, graduates can be gainfully employed as faculty of education, curriculum developers, education policy analysts, educational planners and administrators, school principals and researchers in the field of education. Graduates exiting with B.Ed can be employed as TGTs in schools.
