B.Ed. Research Activities
On 1st July, 2010, PCER, New Panvel organized a Workshop on “Action Research – A pathway to critical reflection” especially for school teachers of Panvel and Navi Mumbai. The education department has made it mandatory for school teachers in government schools to undertake action research. The main objective of this workshop was to acquaint the teachers on action research. Invited resource person for the workshop, Dr. Karuna Sinha, who is a lecturer at Hansraj Jivandas College of Education, Khar, Mumbai, emphasized the meaning, significance and process of action research. She then took up two participatory sessions wherein the participants were divided into groups to prepare and present action plans on the problems given. This activity-oriented learning of action research kept the participants engrossed in both the pre-lunch and post-lunch sessions. The enthused participants commented and constructively criticized every presentation and in the bargain took home an enriched experience.
