Professional Development Needs of Teachers in Assam: A Needs Assessment Study
Dr Jhumpa Dey
The state Assam is the largest state of north-east India. The state has diversified cultures comprising a multi- cultural society. Unlike other parts of India, educational growth in the context of teacher education could not be started earlier in Assam. Skilled competence results in performance of teacher in terms of on the whole development of children. The competent teacher is believed to perform better in the interest of the children and society as well. High level of proficiency empowers teacher with high self-concept, commitment and motivational level. The teacher’s conduct is significant for a humane teacher and it has impact on classroom, school, group of people and educational system. The quality of a particular kind of education is largely depended on the quality of the teacher. In a nutshell, it can be stated that professional competence of a teacher is a most imperative pre-requisite without which even the best curriculum, syllabi and teaching-learning materials cannot ensure desired learning outcome. Therefore, to be a good teacher and also to ensure the desired learning outcome to the target group professional training is a must for every aspiring teacher. Unluckily, the teacher education system is yet to be tuned to adjust with the changing educational need of time. The curriculum and syllabi review effort being undertaken in the context of child centric, joyful and capability based teaching especially at elementary level education has not yet been fully supported by the teacher education programs. As a result, there is large gap between what is expected and what is achieved at field level.
