Role of Science Education in Human Resource Development: A case study of IGNOU
Open and distance education is now being accepted worldwide as an alternative teaching, learning and training medium. It was quite popular in teaching courses in Humanities and Social Sciences at the higher education in the country since 1962. The emergence of distance education and use of information and communication technology (ICT) made this mode effective in delivering courses in disciplines which needed intensive practical and face to face situations. In spite of the potentialities of the media and self-learning nature of the instructional/training modules, many obstacles have been encountered in teaching practical base courses like courses in Science and Technology, Agriculture, Nursing, Medicine, Vocational Training and so on. // IGNOU aims at democratization of higher education and maintenance of high standards covering larger segments of population, vocations and professions. Besides, it has to encourage and strengthen the open and distance education system in and outside the country. The School of Sciences is developing programmes in science disciplines. School has developed 92 courses, of which 62 courses are on offer in the B.Sc. programme. The other 30 comprise of Ph.D., M.Sc., Diploma, Certificate & Appreciation courses. Recently School has started face to face M.Sc programmes in Chemistry and Life Sciences.
