Abstract

Teacher education programme through non-conventional mode in Indian context is more than four decade old. The Education commission (1964-66) recommended opening supplementary channels for clearing the backlog of untrained teacher through Summer courses, Vacation courses, Part time courses and Correspondence courses. During sixties another channel, i.e. correspondence course was introduced. The correspondence-cum-contact mode was considered suitable especially for teachers of the secondary school stage. In order to institutionalise this mode of teacher training, the Central Institute of Education, then a constituent of NCERT, started in 1966 a B.Ed. programme through the correspondence-cum-contact mode. // Paper ID 526
