Dr. Pramod Bhatta: University teachers should be engaged in research activities

TU-PNC, 26 Dec. 2016 – The Dept of Education organized the “Interaction Program on Strengthening Education Research in Nepal: Some Possibilities for the Faculty and Students” on 17 Nov. 2016 under the chairmanship of HoD Khim Raj Subedi.

The interaction program was facilitated by Dr. Pramod Bhatta, a researcher at Martin Chautari, Kathmandu. Martin Chautari is known as a discussion forum for various aspects of Nepali society, culture, politics, media and education.

Speaking at the program, Dr. Bhatta said, “Education research provides an outstanding vision for curriculum leadership and a theoretical road map about how people learn.” He further said, “It embraces the rigorous methods appropriate to the questions being asked and also drives the development of new tools and methods.”

Dr. Bhatta’s presentation was followed by queries raised by the participants. He suggested that university teachers should be engaged in research activities in order to combine teaching and research.

On behalf of the organizer of the program, Dept Head Subedi made a few closing remarks as saying, “We university teachers should think about how research can be integrated in the classroom. Both teaching and research help us develop insight into our field and refine our communication skills.” He also expressed his gratitude to the presenter and to the participants for making the interaction program a grand success.

The program was attended by faculty members and students who have opted for thesis writing for their master’s study.
