Pedagogic Trajectories

Smriti Sharma (Author) Kalyani Akalamkam (Author)

Learning to Teach and Teaching to Learn are complex and multidimensional processes which encompass synthesis, interaction and application of knowledge from multiple sources and dynamic contexts. The teacher education discourses draw from these experiences and engagements and create multiple patterns as in a kaleidoscope. The book Pedagogic Trajectories is an attempt towards evolving a kaleidoscopic vision of teacher education programmes.

The book is a compilation of papers presented at the national seminar on the same theme with the intent to arrive at a shared understanding about the changing nature of pedagogies and to initiate and sustain dialogic reflection so as to evolve a vision for Teacher Education Programmes. Given this vision, the papers included in the book reflect a tapestry of experiences and contemporary issues pertinent to Teacher Education from the vantage point of school teachers, teacher educator, researchers and educationists. The authors examine a variety of themes that have and are determining the discourse of teacher education in our country. The range includes theoretical papers to research based papers and experiential narratives. The book will serve as essential reading for scholars and students of teacher education and contribute to strengthening of the epistemological basis of teacher education.
