Abstract
The Faculty of Education of the Open University of Sri Lanka has incorporated interactive techniques such as interactive day schools and assignments to the teaching-learning process of a teacher education programme conducted through the distance mode with the ppurpose of improving the quality. Those interactive techniques have been identified and developed in relation to a number of brainstorming sessions and workshops in which both internal and visiting lecturers had participated. It is expected that by taking part in an interactive manner in the teaching learning process , student teachers themselves will experience the effectiveness of the strategies and develop necessary skills and positive attitudes towards implementing such techniques with their own students. // Having introduced such techniques, a research study was conducted to reveal the perception of both student teachers and lecturers regarding the newly introduced interactive methods for the PGDE Programme. // Paper ID 301
