Teacher training and teacher education


Leena Sharma

This paper presents conceptual analysis of the concepts “Teacher Training” and “Teacher Education”. Although educationists have drawn a distinction between “Training” and “Education” yet these two different concepts are still used and understood interchangeably by a number of teacher educators, teachers, students and common people. Therefore, there is a great need to clarify the phenomenon. In this paper an attempt is made to answer some questions of basic nature i.e. the difference between “training” and “education” and “teacher training” and “teacher education”, scope of “training” and “education”, aims of “training” and “education”, teacher’s/instructor’s role in “training” and “education”, concept of evaluation in both, and other related aspects of “training” and “education”. In the end current practice of our teacher education programmes is discussed in the light of the concepts “teacher training” and “teacher education”.
