“Education is the complete development of the individuality of the child so that he can make an original contribution to human life to his best capacity”. Nunn
The Department of Education was set up in 1974 with a view to provide an insight into workings of education process to the students especially to those who would like to become a future teacher. The first lecturer to be appointed in the department was Smt. Yorilla Laloo. Since then, many dedicated and capable teachers were appointed who have contributed their knowledge and skills for the cause of each and every students and institution as a whole. The existing teachers nonetheless have followed the footsteps of their predecessors and are working wholeheartedly putting their Heads, Hands and Heart to bring about quality education to the institution.
The Department of Education at present consists of 5(five) faculty members out of which we are proud to have three faculty members who are the product of Tura Government College itself. The department conducts 3 years B.A Education Honours Course under semester system since 2015. The subject combinations for Education are History, Political Science and Elective Language. To enhance the teaching skills of the teachers, the department also organises workshops for the faculty on teaching methodology. The department always encourage students for interactive studies and discussions that will enhance their skills and knowledge, so that it will prepare the students to be competent in their future endeavour. A cordial relationship between the students and teachers has always been in practice in the department to create a healthy environment in the teaching-learning situations.
