Quality of education is outcome of process of learning and practice
In an ongoing training of teachers of tribal region of Rajasthan that will conclude on March 13, a common understanding on the notion of quality of education was built. It was informed that the concept of quality was first developed in industry and found inroads in education.
Since two areas of human endeavours are different, therefore, product-oriented and standardization of products cannot be used for defining of quality of education.

"Education is a social process of developing innate human potentials, science of learning and internalization of acquired knowledge, therefore quality of education should be determined by the the purity of learning process and practice leading to retention of knowledge," said the key resource trainer at a six-day teacher training at Banswara co-partnered by SWACHH, UNICEF and CULP.

Education too, like other knowledge areas, is being deemed as a science these days and learning needs be treated as process and no step of it should be short-circuited along with enough practice to become spontaneous with the acquired knowledge, stressed the trainer in the training attended by about 80 teachers.

The process of learning was explained through the analysis of an origami exercise. The steps in the learning process were identified as activity or experience; analysis of experience; support activity to remove difficulties in learning; knowledge generation; codification of generated knowledge; practice exercises on it to remember it actively. It was emphasized that the classroom instruction should follow this process to ensure quality of education.
