The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has launched a “value education” course for teachers, NGOs and professionals which will help them integrate values in the process of teaching and learning, a varsity statement said on Tuesday.
The certificate programme in Value Education (CPVE) has been designed to inculcate the importance of value education in the teaching- learning process among teachers, graduates, NGO’s and professionals, said the statement.
“The target group for the course is teachers (mostly elementary) for integrating values in their transactional process of teaching and learning,” said the programme coordinator, Silima Nanda.
According to the University, CPVE will be offered from January 2012 in the distance learning mode.
Starting with two courses and 4,000 students in 1985, IGNOU has evolved into one of the world’s largest varsities by offering about 450 programmes and has currently over three million students on its rolls.
