Munira Jabeen

Abstract


Teacher Education refers to the policies and procedures designed to equip prospective teachers with the knowledge, attitude, behaviour and skills which they require to perform their task effectively in the classroom, school and wider community.  To achieve this, one must go through a proper learning process.  If it is provided only then a prospective teacher can do his/her best in academic achievement. B.Ed. course is offered in both distance and regular mode.  Earlier the studies have been done by other Indian as well as foreign investigators on the effectiveness, academic performance and study habits of the students of both modes.  It is very necessary to know that whether they are having a favourable educational atmosphere because the development of elementary student depends upon the teacher only.  Teachers are always considered as the backbone of a school; the more they are skilled the more students will achieve knowledge and chance to develop.  So the study was conducted to find out the level of teacher aptitude and academic achievement of prospective teachers of both distance and the regular mode.

 

Through this study I have found that there is no significant difference between the prospective teachers of both modes in accordance with their teacher aptitude and Academic achievement.  All the necessary academic skills and teaching aptitude depends on the learners’ own efforts and interest.
