TS D.Ed 1st year,Internship Schedule,Instructions

Internship Programmes in general are supposed to facilitate ‘the transition from student status in a profession’s pre service education programme to the status of a full – fledged member of the profession’. This general conceptualization can aptly apply to the professional preparation of teachers. The Field engagement is an essential component of any teacher education programme. Field engagement involves engagement with the students and teachers in schools. According to the School Internship: Framework and Guidelines (January, 2016) of NCTE, the sustained engagement with the school over a period of time is known as ‘school internship’ which equips the prospective teacher to build a repertoire of professional understandings, competencies, skills and positive attitude to schooling and teaching. This internship programme provides an opportunity to the perspective teachers to link the educational theory and pedagogical concepts with their practice on the one hand , and on the other to test the validity of theoretical propositions in actual school settings. It is this component of the teacher education curriculum which facilitates transformation of student-teachers from being learners in the art and science of teaching to adequately-equipped teachers to perform the responsibilities of a teacher in actual school settings.

Internship Schedule for D.EI.Ed. 1st Year
The Internship Programme for 1st year D.El.Ed. Student Teachers of 2015-2017 academic batch is scheduled in two spells i.e. from 13-09-2016 to 01-12-2016
1st spell from 13-09-2016 to 29-09-2016 and 17-10-2016 to 21-10-2016 and
2nd spell from 07-1.1-2016 to 01-12-2016).

Due to globalization, a teacher in present day scenario has to engage the children coming from different socio-cultural contexts. The purpose of engagement is to facilitate children’s holistic learning and development, for which the teacher must have thorough understanding of the child and his/her socio-cultural contexts. The teacher must also have the competence in different areas of school curriculum and to use appropriate pedagogies. To enhance the effectiveness and quality of teacher preparation, in the present D.El.Ed curriculum, the utility of ICT, Arts and Crafts etc are introduced as pedagogic tools.

The Internship programme helps the student-teachers to be not as mere recipients of knowledge, but to become assimilators and generators of knowledge. It provides an opportunity to the prospective teachers to link the educational theory and pedagogical concepts with their practice on the one hand, and on the other to test the validity of theoretical propositions in actual school settings.

The school based activities are designed to enable the student-teachers to connect theory to practice and enable them to teach effectively. During the school-internship, the student-teacher is expected to observe classroom teaching of mentors/peers, to get insights into student behaviour, instructional practices, student learning, learning environments and classroom management. The student-teacher is expected to critically reflect and discuss these practices and engage in activities like maintenance of records and registers, preparation of lesson and unit plans using different artifacts and technology, classroom management, activities related to school – community – parent interface and reflections on self - development and professionalization of teaching practice.

The other component of school-based activities to be carried out during internship is delivering the lessons/units of pedagogic courses in the first and second year as specified. The activities undertaken during the internship period will be presented in Reflective Journals. The student-teachers are expected to record their experiences, observations and conclusions regarding all the activities undertaken. The entries of Reflective Journals will be analytical answering ‘what’ is new and different from their previous understandings, ‘why’ certain observations made by them with regard to instruction, classroom management, PTAs etc. are different / same and ‘how’ these observations might lead to a criticism and change in their practice.understandings, ‘why’ certain observations made by them with regard to instruction, classroom management, PTAs etc. are different / same and ‘how’ these observations might lead to a criticism and change in their practice.
