Research Cell

The college has a seperate research cell which is well equipped with an extensive collection of theses, dissertations and books on research methodology. The institution is recognized as a research centre for conducting doctoral studies in education by the University of Mumbai.

Research is undertaken to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The aim of all research initiatives undertaken in the college is to develop our practices by analysing existing practices and identifying elements/processes for change. This process enables us to enhance our professional competencies.

As a leading professional college of teacher education, it is our constant endeavour to adopt new methods, techniques, strategies to communicate better with the aspiring learners so that all these skills and attitudes developed over a period of time can be transmitted to the upcoming new age learners. The most explored areas are methods of teaching, various strategies of teaching, team teaching, co-operative learning techniques, drill and assignments, impact and effectiveness of technology and various ICT resources, studying various psychological traits, testing psychological theories etc.

The institution also maintains and enhances the quality of its programmes by taking continuous and comprehensive feedback during the academic year. Student teachers’ responses and reflections are scientifically gathered and systematically and statistically analysed to make relevant decisions. Thus the institution uses research methodology to improve quality of its academic and non-academic programmes. Apart from this, the faculty is involved in conducting research on important emerging issues of education.
