US, India bolster teaching skills

New Delhi, July 29 : The United States, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has announced a new USD 4.3 million partnership with Arizona State University's (ASU) Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College.

This program will share educational best practices with Indian teachers.

In partnership with the Government of India Ministry of Human Resource Development, the India Support for Teacher Education program (In-STEP) will send 110 educators from teacher training institutes in the eastern and northeastern states of India to ASU to participate in a three-month program.

The intensive training course will cover a range of topics including teaching methods, in-service and pre-service teacher education, and assessment techniques.

As part of this customized program, ASU will provide the Indian educators with opportunities to observe American schools and educational best practices. They will see firsthand innovative teaching and learning approaches.

In addition, the Indian participants will work closely with ASU professors to prepare proposals for reform in specific areas of education, which they would then be able to implement in their respective states. The ultimate goal is better-trained teachers and improved educational outcomes for Indian students.
