Training and Development

The Department of Training and Development has a very distinctive teaching role mandated - we are responsible for designing and organising in-service teacher development programmes to teachers of English at various levels. Currency and relevance of our programmes are ensured through dedicated attention paid to design of courses that are need-specific.

In addition to proven-effective teacher training modules like classroom methodology, materials design, and assessment, our programmes help teachers update their knowledge through modules like role of mother tongue in second language teaching, social justice in the classroom, culturally responsive pedagogy, skills development, etc.

Further, our programmes aim to develop competency in contemporary teaching by offering components like use of multimedia, strategy training, differentiated instruction, strategies to deal with slow learners and learners with learning disabilities, etc. on a need-to-know basis. Read More

Highly customised training programmes that enable teachers of English to be providers of sustainable and responsive education is the reason why our courses are much sought-after by governmental and non-governmental organisations alike.

Some of our international training programmes were for teachers from Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. >

• FLAIR (Fostering linkages in academic innovations and research)
