Abstract

Most reputed Teacher Education Institutes come with the inherent advantages of having curriculum designers, subject matter experts and a well stocked library under one roof; hence to tap their potential, pre-service teachers at such premier institutes should be trained to develop instructional material. Involving teacher education institutes in material development would also ensure that local needs of the learners are also met. Today, as education is no longer restricted only to a formal system and the ODL form of learning is gaining popularity, pre-service teachers need to be equipped with the skill sets to be able to negotiate the teaching learning in an ODL environment. Open and distance learning provides learners with more accessibility and flexibility.
