New Vision for Teacher Development

Cognizant of the various shortcomings of the previous approach to teacher development, as shown in the preceding section, DSD has developed a conceptual framework for continuous professional development of teachers, which involves a major paradigm shift in teacher development. Child learning is placed at the heart of the CPD framework. The current approach of DSD broadens the scope of teacher development from mere ‘teacher training’ to ‘continuous professional development for quality learning.

The guiding principle of this new approach is the effective teacher development that must be need-based, school-based and practice-based and that must be combined with classroom-based follow-up, mentoring, pedagogical support and supervision. This approach ­also uses mentors and mentoring as a means of providing follow-up support to the teachers through mentoring system. The framework is grounded on the most recent thinking am: research on teacher development. The vision acknowledges that if the policy objective o= improving educational quality is to be attained, it should start at the point where learning occurs – the classroom, and be a continuous process.

Concept of Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

“Continuing Professional Development” is a long-term process involving opportunities and experiences, planned and organized systematically to promote the professional development of teachers both individually and collectively so as to enhance the quality of child learning.
