T 112 MODULAR APPROACH
The word "Modular" refers to learning packages consisting of separate parts or units or small chunks which can be put together to form sets of instructional materials. The strategy of learning modules has become a part of all levels of teaching. A learning module is a self-learning package dealing with one specific subject matter unit. It can be used in any setting convenient to the learner and may be completed at the learner's own pace. It may be used individually or in small groups. It is structured in such a way that learner can identify the objectives he/she wants to achieve, select the appropriate material, follow a learning sequence by selecting from a variety of methods of presentation, and evaluate his/her own achievements. In modular learning, the teacher becomes a facilitator of learning rather than the traditional dispenser of knowledge. Sufficient theory and practice are available for the application of modular teaching in our classrooms. This programme helps participants generate new knowledge and lead others in modular approach at both national and international levels.
At the end of the programme, participants will be able to:
