NCE  PROGRAMME

1.         PHILOSOPHY

The curriculum is designed to produce knowledgeable, highly motivated, professional and effective teachers of biology who will be able to develop in students an appreciation and understanding of biological process and principles. The programme is also designed to develop confidence in the biology teacher and enhance his ability to adapt to the changing situations in science and the technologically oriented society.

2.        OBJECTIVES

At the end of the programme, the N.C.E. teacher will be able to:

(i)                 View biology as a process of inquiry into the living world:

(ii)               Critically analyze the activities of living things in their environment;

(iii)             Demonstrate practical skills in handling scientific apparatus;

(iv)              Demonstrate excellence and professional competence in teaching secondary school biology;

(v)                Include positive scientific attitudes and values in the society and promote positive  disposition towards biology, science and the scientific enterprise;

(vi)              Apply concepts and methods acquired in the course in new areas of study and in every situations;

(vii)            Make a successful career in biology teaching;

DEGREE  PROGRAMME

OBJECTIVE

The B.Sc. Honours degree programme in Education is designed to produce the right caliber of teachers in sufficient quality and quality to meet the national heeds and contribution to the achievement of the national objectives. At the end of the course science teachers should be able to teach Biology, Chemistry, mathematics and Physics at the secondary school level. The programme also aims at giving the science teachers a solid background in the concept, knowledge and use of science with professional abilities.

Graduate of the B.Sc. Education Programme are expected to be able to:

1.     Teach their subjects at the secondary school level.

2.     Teach science at the non-degree teacher training college.

3.     Instruct students with the best possible techniques or instructional technology in the teaching of science.

4.     Inculcate in the students the spirit of inquiry, creativity, and the ability to think critically and effectively in solving personal and/or other problem.

5.     Organize and manage students to learn by doing through constant practice and experimentation.

6.     Understand the role of science in general education and in the society.
