Department of Education

About

“Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested all your life. We must have life-building, man-making, character- making, assimilation of ideas”

-----Swami Vivekananda

The Education department of Heramba Chandra College came into existence in the year 1963 with education as an elective subject of three years General course. From the session 2002-2003, Honours course in education was introduced in our institution. Keeping in view the vision and mission statements of college, the department has successfully taken many initiatives and innovative steps in order to realize the achievement of goal of excellence in education. Admission in the Honours course is done on the basis of eligibility criteria fixed by the University of Calcutta or the department selects students for Honours purely on the basis of merit according to the marks obtained in the Higher Secondary examination. After admission they remain under a process of continuous supervision of teacher. Department has prepared the curriculum Transactional strategy (CTS) for making the teaching-learning process more effective and efficient. Regular internal evaluation through entry-level test, mid-term test, class test etc. are taken throughout the year. Students of education department every year organize cultural and social functions like fresher’s welcome, Farewell to outgoing students, observance of teachers’ Day etc. These types of Programmes are very helpful in establishing healthy and congenial pupil-pupil relationship and teacher-pupil relationship. Moreover this sort of programmes are helpful in identification of the talents of the students in the various non-academic spheres. The department is going to publish a departmental student journal soon. Department fruitfully organized Departmental excursions jointly with other Departments. During the last five years the Department has successfully organized peer lecture, Educational tour and wall-magazine. Teachers of the department are encouraged to go for orientation courses/refresher courses, to attend workshops, seminars etc.

In the session 2018-2019 CBCS (Choice based credit system) is going to be introduced by the Calcutta University in our department like all other departments.
