ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Department of Education (M.Ed)

 

The beginning of the Post-graduate Department of Education may be traced back to the academic year 1949-50, when the Post-graduate Studies in Education were organized in the Government Secondary Teachers (S.T.) Training College, Belgaum. This College was established in 1939 and affiliated to the Bombay University. It had permitted the Principal of the S.T. College to organise a “Course of Lectures” leading to the M.Ed. (Master of Education) degree of the Bombay University, during school holidays, for the benefit of  secondary school teachers and educational officers.  After establishment of the Karnatak University at Dharwad, in 1950, the Government Secondary Teachers Training College, Belgaum came under the jurisdiction of the Karnatak University and however the Post-graduate Studies in Education was continued to be organized by the Principal of the S.T. College, Belgaum for the Karnatak University Dharwad. This was the first M.Ed. Course in Karnataka State.

  In 1962, the Karnatak University started the Post-graduate Department of Education and the College of Education, which were modeled after  the London University.  Dr. D.C. Pavate, the then Vice-Chancellor sponsored this system in Karnatak University.  Accordingly to avail better facilities, the Centre of Post-Graduate Studies in Education was shifted from S.T. College, Belgaum to Dharwad. The Post-Graduate Department of Education started functioning at Dharwad in the year 1962 with Miss Sulabha Panandikar as Head of the Post-Graduate Department of Education and Principal of the University College of Education. The Post-Graduate Department of Education and University College of Education began functioning on 15th June 1962, in Karnatak College building, Dharwad. The Department had the distinction and privilege of having its first Head becoming the Member of the historic Indian (Kothari) Education Commission (1964-66). After Miss Sulabha Panandikar joined Kothari Commission, Sri C.S. Bennur, who was then the Principal of the S.T. College, Belgaum was invited to take charge of the University College of Education as Principal and Head of the Department of Education.
