Teaching is a noble and alive profession. A teacher plays a pivotal role in the teaching-learning process. He is a shaper and has a bounded duty to shape the personality of an individual in order to meet the future challenges and demands of the nation.
A teacher has always been a dynamic source of changing the fortune of a nation. He can inculcate good habits and healthy attitudes among the students through his personal and professional traits viz, honesty, hard-work, friendliness and commitment. Moreover, teacher should have wisdom, knowledge, insight and dedication. A good teacher should have command over his subject and be able to use a variety of techniques and strategies when situation demands.
I personally feel that our system of education can face a severe set back due to untrained teachers in various disciplines. Department of Education, Government College University, Faisalabad is fully conscious of its responsibilities to train and educate the Community and for this reason the department is going to launch M. Phil program this year, apart from the existing B. Ed (Hons) Elementary and MA Education programs.
