  1. B Ed – .SCHOOL INTERNSHIP (16 weeks- 260 Marks)


The Internship Program forms an integral and important component of B.Ed. programme; internship serves as a capstone experience that informs about and prepares them for the expectations of and how to succeed in the profession. Student teaching internships is an essential component for a student‘s success as a professional teacher. Student Teaching Internships provides students the opportunity to practice what has been learned on the university campus and, more importantly, it is an opportunity to continue academic and professional growth.

The school internship is designed to enable the student-teachers to connect theory to practice and to help them acquire a perspective regarding the aims of education within which their previously acquired knowledge and practices can be systematized and structured to enable them to teach effectively. The purpose of the internship programme is to provide the student (intern) with the opportunity of undergoing a meaningful experience as a practitioner. As conceived, the programme should be structured so that it is a partnership between the school and the college. The intern must function as a regular teacher and therefore be immersed in all aspects of the school. During the school-internship the student teacher is expected to observe classroom teaching of mentors/ peers, to get insights into student behavior, instructional practices, student learning, learning environments and classroom managementThe 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. The activities undertaken during the internship period will be presented in Portfolios and Reflective Journals. The student-teachers are expected to record their experiences, observations and conclusions regarding all the activities undertaken. . The intern is also expected to maintain a daily reflective journal in which the intern will reflect on her practice and also attempt to draw linkages between pedagogy and the theory courses s/he has studied. The major purpose of the Reflective Journal is Reflection on-Action. Reflective Journal would include a brief description of how the class was conducted, how learners responded, reflective statements about his preparedness for the class, responses to learners‘ questions, capacity to include learners sharing of their experiences, responses towards their errors, difficulties in comprehending new ideas and concepts, issues of discipline, organization and management of group, individual and group activities etc. The internship will be organized for a continuous period of 16 weeks in selected schools. Necessary orientation to the cooperating teachers and headmasters will be organized at the Institute. The School Internship Programme could include undertaking classroom-based research projects; developing and maintaining resources in the Internship schools, administering of diagnostic tests and identifying of learning difficulties, conducting a case study/action research, organizing curricular and co-curricular activities etc. The intern must create democratic ethos, where student autonomy is enhanced and all students are treated with fairness and with respect. For each student-teacher, internship should be conducted preferably in one school for the entire 16 weeks. However, if the institute wants to provide an opportunity to understand the context of teaching in a government and private school or the dynamics of teaching at elementary and senior secondary levels, this period can be divided into two blocks. Internship may be arranged in two blocks in such a way that teaching in one school at a particular level (for example elementary or senior secondary) during one block, is followed by the teaching in another school or the same school at another level during the second block. Under any circumstances, the student-teacher should not be sent to more than two schools during her/his internship period. Graduate students can be assigned standards VI to X and for post graduates from VI to XII. Only those students having Post Graduate degree in the concerned Optional Subject are permitted to teach at Higher Secondary School level. The intern will necessarily have supervisory support from the faculty in the form of subject supervision, who will also assess the intern. The intern will be required to develop unit plans for which she must choose and design appropriate activities. A record of these plans must be maintained. Assessment should be developmental in nature, with clear emphasis on growth of the intern. Assessment Evaluation of performance during internship will be done on the basis of assessment by institute supervisors, cooperating teachers, headmasters, records, reports and student activities/assignments. Post-internship Activities and Follow-up activities are to be taken up by the Institute.

  1. M Ed Internship and its Evaluation


 Internship is viewed as an intensive on site engagement of a student in institution of teacher education. The internship has been conceptualized in two parts or 3 credits

each. Internship is the culmination of theoretical understandings developed in transacted courses.. First part involves a compulsory attachment with a secondary or elementary teacher education institution.They are expected to take classes of Core courses of B.Ed using different types of lesson plans.. As a part of internship they also study other academic and administrative procedures of a B.Ed college/ programme. The second part involves interning in B.Ed colleges relevant to the area of specialization and classes on Optional subjects for B.Ed students. The M.Ed students also observe B.Ed lessons, guide B.Ed students in lesson planning and give them feedback .Both these internships will be organized for duration of three weeks each. A student’s regularity, engagement in the field sites, and discussions with mentors (during pre-planning and during and after the internship) should also be included in the assessment. This implies that the internship should be seen as a mentored component whereby a faculty and a member from the host institution (field mentor) together guide the students.
