Workshop to enhance the capacity of teacher educators being held in Delhi
Teacher Education through School-based Support in India (TESS-India), UK's Open University project funded by DFID, will be developing and disseminating high quality instructional resources for teacher educators across India.
According the project organisers, existing teacher training institutions in India are unable to meet the demand of a rapidly expanding education system. Keeping this view, the Open University in the UK will be working in partnership with those who offer teacher education in India to improve the quality, and increase the quantity, of trained teachers in order to improve the life chances of millions of children.
Accordingly, under the TESS-India project, the high quality, freely available, multi-media, school-based, Open Educational Resources will be developed for teacher educators in India. It is being hoped that the project will significantly enhance the capacity of teacher educators to train more teachers.
The identified Indian writers trained through the workshop will work part-time on this project and will collaborate with UK-based academics from its Open University to develop Indian resources in the subjects and areas identified under the project.
