Department of Elementary and Teacher Education


The Mission of the B.Ed (Hon) Elementary Program is to prepare prospective teachers in acquiring the knowledge, skills and dispositions needed to be successful, competent and professional educators, adopting innovative teaching strategies through a blend of content and professional courses, as defined by the National Professional Standards of Teachers of Pakistan.

Program Goals

The four year degree program initiated by HEC/USAID and accredited by NACTE is designed to help prospective teachers achieve the highest quality of teaching as described by the National Professional Standards for Teachers. Moving away from teacher-centered lectures, the new standards promote student-centered learning in Pakistani classrooms. Participants learn how to foster learner-centered, active learning, where teachers guide students in discussion and other interactive activities that make learning more engaging and meaningful. The prospective teachers acquire the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need to help sustain good classroom practices.
