Teaching is a complex and demanding work that requires highly specialized skills and knowledge to impact significantly on student learning. Furthermore, teaching is a dynamic profession and, as new knowledge about teaching and learning emerges; new types of expertise are required by educators. Teachers must keep abreast of this knowledge base and use it continually to refine their conceptual and pedagogical skills. Professional learning for teachers plays a critical role in this endeavour by equipping them with the expertise, skills and knowledge they need to develop these capacities in students. The focus on teaching-learning process will engage teachers towards the student’s concern, attention and interest. This will make the educational programme more meaningful and socially relevant. There is an urgent need for creating an effective system to provide opportunities for professional and capacity building of teachers, necessary for quality education and research. This will help teachers to be well equipped and motivated to accept new challenges emerging from the growth of new knowledge, international competitiveness and changing requirements of learners, especially in the institutions of higher education. Keeping in mind the noble mission behind launching the PMMMNMTT Scheme and the growing realization of a system-wide transformation, University of Calicut comes forward to take the initiative of setting up a TLC under the Department of Education.

MHRD, Government of India, in its V1th PAB meeting held on 23rd February 2016, approved a project under PMMMNMTT (Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching) for setting up of Teaching Learning Centre (TLC) to the Department of Education, University of Calicut. The aims and objectives of the project are to promote on a continuous basis discipline-specific currila, pedagoy, learning materials (including e-content) for use of Teachers of Science, Social Science and Education of University/Colleges and teachers of higher secondary education
