Introduction

Welcome to the Faculty of Education...

Established in August 2005, the Faculty of Education grew out of a thriving Department of Education that was well-known for turning out some of the most notable educational leaders in the AMECEA area. The Faculty has two newly established departments that serve both undergraduate and graduate students.
To set itself apart, the Faculty offers cutting-edge training programs and places a high priority on improving the pedagogical abilities of its faculty members in order to increase student satisfaction. By adopting student-centered teaching methodologies and providing its staff with ongoing training in customized pedagogical approaches, the Faculty cultivates dynamic learning environments that encourage critical thinking.
Due to their commitment to providing top-notch instruction, graduates are more satisfied with their education and are in high demand on the job market since they possess the critical thinking and knowledge acquisition skills. Aiming to enhance learning as a transforming path towards existential fulfillment, the Faculty’s mission goes beyond academic achievement.
As per the words of Professor Avasarala, the Head of the Department of Community Medicine at the Fatima Institute of Medical Sciences, the Faculty places a strong emphasis on the art of teaching, the reciprocal development of teachers and students, accountability in effectively instructive practices, and the value of interactive lectures over didactic lectures in regulating student conduct.

Uniqueness of our Training Programs

The Faculty of Education is committed to improving (pedagogical) educational skills among its academic staff inorder to improve student satisfaction. Generally, the principal mode of instruction in our lecture halls has continued to embrace student-centred training models. By continuously upgrading our academic staff with alternative pedagogical approaches tailor-made for specific groups, topics and instructional goals, our classes are more engaging and stimulate students’ critical and analytical abilities.

This high-quality teaching translates into a more satisfied student community. Our graduates having been exposed to a variety of techniques necessary for the acquisition and critical appraisal of knowledge and information continue to be in high demand in the labor market. Today’s employers value graduates who have skills in the critical analysis of information. Our enhanced pedagogical strategies are aimed at nurturing these.

Indeed, at the Faculty of Education, we are committed to making learning a process of spiritual and existential broadening that bestows a final meaning on life and on the pursuit of happiness. Borrowing from the words of Avasarala (Professor & Head Dept of Community Medicine Fatima Institute of Medical Sciences) the Faculty of education is convinced that: Teaching is an art (not just reading from a book and reproducing in the class room); teacher development is mutual with the student development and vice versa; don’t throw the blame on the students for your failure to create an impact with your lecture; and that the best way to control the students is by giving them best lectures.
