The concept of department took form in an ethos of dedication to the need of higher education of the society. It also had before it a vision of Indian Culture. Therefore the whole architecture stands upon the twin foundation pillars of societal needs and Indian Culture. The department is very clear about the perspective in which its educational efforts are to be made, it did not have a clear picture of the form and pattern of educational programme which has to be adopted, except that it should be able to promote development of a balanced and harmonious personality of the teacher trainers and so should be different from the form of teacher education prevalent which emphasized book learning to utter neglect of the practical aspect of teaching and learning.
