Why study Diploma in Elementary Education (D.El.Ed.)

We need teachers for Elementary stages in schools who:

  • Care for children and love to be with them, understand children within social, cultural and political contexts, develop sensitivity to their needs and problems, treat all children equally.
  • Perceive children not as passive receivers of knowledge, augment their natural propensity to construct meaning, discourage rote learning, make learning a joyful, participatory and meaningful activity.
  • Critically examine curriculum and textbooks, contextualize curriculum to suit local needs.
  • Do not treat knowledge as a ‘given’, embedded in the curriculum and accepted without question.
  • Organize learner-centred, activity-based, participatory learning experiences – play, projects, discussion, dialogue, observation, visits and learn to reflect on their own practice.
  • Integrate academic learning with social and personal realities of learners, responding to diversities in the classroom.
  • Promote values of peace, democratic way of life, equality, justice, liberty, fraternity, secularism and zeal for social reconstruction.
