H.E. Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil
President of India &
Visitor of IGNOU
Silver Jubilee Inaugural Address
on
19
th
November, 2009 at IGNOU Campus
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am pleased to inaugurate the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the Indira Gandhi National Open
University established in the memory of Late Prime Minister, Smt. Indira Gandhi.
On her birth anniversary today, it is her deep commitment to the development of the country and
to the upliftment of those living in poverty that one recalls as her distinguishing hallmark. She
viewed education as a liberating force, which while enabling individuals to earn a living would also
make them capable citizens and therefore, wanted that education should reach all people in the
country. She had faith in the power of technology to contribute to this. She said, and I quote,
“Communication technology frees the entire concept of education from its previous limit of time and
space ... we can reach out to the remotest places and to the best minds that exist. We do not have
all of it yet in India, but I sincerely hope that we will have it soon and that this will help our education
to be more broad-based and deeper”. India has now emerged as a leader in IT and we must
use its potential to the fullest, to spread education and knowledge. Indeed, the mission of
IGNOU, founded in 1985, is to make knowledge and skills available to anybody, anywhere,
anytime. I wish everyone associated with IGNOU every success in this noble endeavour.
IGNOU has grown in the 25 years of its existence. It has over 15 per cent of all learners enrolled
in higher education in the country and offers a wide range of programmes and courses through
its vast network of learning centres across the country. Its Regional Centres can play a very
important role in reducing disparities in education by extending education opportunities in
villages and remote areas. While expanding its coverage and as part of its continuing effort to
improve its teaching platform, I am told, that IGNOU has started a “convergence scheme” bringing
together the strengths of face-to-face conventional education and the flexibility of open and
lR;eao t;rs

distance learning. It is institutions that seek to excel that constantly work to upgrade their
facilities and incorporate good practices.
The importance of education cannot be over emphasized. It is a very powerful tool for empowering
people and for giving them self-dignity. It becomes even more important for a nation like ours that
is in the process of harnessing its human resources for rapid economic growth. Today, we need
more children in school and more of them to go on to higher education. Proper training,
provisioning of skills sets and capacity building of its population are tools which shall make our
human resources competent and confident to face the new set of challenges of a fast changing
world.
Nations with high quality human resources would be counted amongst the front ranking nations of
the world in the knowledge era. Aristotle, the ancient Greek philosopher, once remarked that the
fate of nations
.
depends on the education of its youth. Therefore, reaching education to young
girls and boys must occupy a foremost position on our agenda, if we are to be firmly positioned
as one of the leading nations of the world. That is why Government has made education a priority
sector. Free education to children between the ages 6 and 14 years is - now a fundamental right.
The Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan seeks to achieve universal secondary education by the
year 2017. The Gross Enrollment Ratio or GER in India in higher education is very low as
compared to the world average. Strenuous efforts are required to reach our goal of enhancing
GER in India to 20 per cent by 2020. A massive expansion in higher education through new
institutions is also underway, alongwith efforts to improve educational standards, including through
undertaking structural reforms in the higher education system and using all available methods to
spread education. The National Mission on Education through Information Communication
Technology launched in February this year will create internet connectivity to about 20,000 colleges
and educational institutions. This initiative will, I am confident bring in the use of modern
technology in higher education in a more widespread manner.
While broadbasing access to education is important, one must not lose sight of the utmost
importance which should be paid to the quality of education being given to students and the need
for equity. This should start from the primary level itself. Government has been, therefore,
emphasizing and is committed to providing good quality education to all students, especially
those from the underprivileged sections. The spread of education amongst women is also very
important. By spreading education amongst them, not only is an individual educated, but rather
the seeds of progress of the next generation are planted.
The Open University System being flexible and innovative can be useful for a wide section of
society and should help in improving skills sets. Enhancing the skill sets of the workforce in the
country is a challenge. Only 5 per cent of the workforce in India has some kind of certification.
This is in contrast to over 85 per cent in the developed countries. Encouragement of work-
integrated learning followed by examination, certification and accreditation through distance
10 IGNOU Common Prospectus
education will be of help. However, to make it effective there would be a need for active two way
collaboration with industry and other players. I believe that Open Universities should also generate
a movement in the rural areas that will impel people to acquire knowledge and skills for self-
empowerment. In this context, educational programmes like the Gyan Darshan Channel of IGNOU,
which is reaching over 8 million homes, can be useful in motivating people.
Distance education offers an opportunity to those already in employment to upgrade their
knowledge base, so that they can more effectively contribute to the productivity of work in their
organizations. Studying, while in employment, also offers opportunities for enhancement of career
opportunities. I am, therefore, happy that IGNOU and the Indian Army have decided to work
together to create a process of certification of higher education of soldiers. Till now the skills that
the Army personnel acquired while in service were not reflected through any formal degrees
awarded to them. I am happy that through this new collaboration, they will get appropriate
certification. This can be helpful in their work and to start a new professional life at the end of
their careers in the Army. I therefore, welcome this new initiative and am pleased to dedicate Gyan
Deep to the nation. Similarly, the Flexi Learn Platform which has also been launched today is
significant as it provides an opportunity for prospective learners to sample a course before
enrolling and thereby, help them in choosing appropriate courses and programmes.
I am happy that IGNOU is taking up new initiatives during its Silver Jubilee Year. From this year
onwards, the Rajiv Gandhi International Prize for Technology in Education and Development has
been instituted by the University. The Prize would be given to an individual or an institution that has
made significant contributions to educational technology, for development in the developing world.
I congratulate the officials and the staff of IGNOU who have contributed over the last quarter
century to the growth of the University. I hope that as the Silver Jubilee is celebrated, new
initiatives will be thought of in the time ahead, so that more and more of our population will be
covered by distance education. This will be the mission for which I am sure IGNOU shall work
for in all earnestness.
I would also like to convey my good wishes to Shri Kapil Sibal, Union
,
Minister for Human
Resource Development and Smt. Purandeshwari, Union Minister of State for HRD for success
in their work in the education sector.
Thanking you,
Jai Hind

IGNOU Common Prospectus 11
Message from the Vice-Chancellor
Dear learners,
I welcome you to ‘Indira Gandhi National Open University’, the world’s largest university disseminating open
and distance learning. This Central University established by an Act of Parliament in 1985 is committed itself
to serve the needs of variety of learners. With great pleasure, I present you the Common Prospectus 2011 of
IGNOU offering admission for various certificate, diploma, degree, post-graduate and doctoral research
programmes.
From a modest beginning of two academic programmes, IGNOU now offers around 520 programmes with
significant features of openness, flexibility, and learner-centric quality education for skill up-graduate, training,
competence enhancement and qualification. In the last 25 years IGNOU had been able to establish greater
access to a large number of people, rural and urban across barriers of gender, caste, class and creed. As a
pioneer in Open and Distance Learning (ODL), IGNOU has been at the forefront of taking education to the
doorsteps of learners over the years particularly to the remotely located disadvantaged sections of society. We
at IGNOU are dedicated to provide more opportunities for advanced learning for those who aspire for studies
since upgrading the quality of workforce in the society requires access to higher education and capacity
building.
The dedicated faculty of IGNOU is engaged in identifying educational needs of the society and to bring unique
academic programmes in the fields of para-medics, law, agriculture, social sciences, performing arts, IT, engi-
neering, humanities, languages, mass media, women and gender studies, etc. The faculty with a large number
of adjunct teachers dedicate themselves in effective learning support and personalized academic support.
IGNOU has a large professional strength of academics and administrative personnel located in the regional
centres to provide just-in-time administrative support, be it pre-admission counseling support or post-programme
placements.
In the previous Silver Jubilee year, we have taken a much desired step of going into the multiple mode of
education delivery. Alongside Open and Distance Learning, on-line approach, we have started on-campus face
to face teaching in emerging areas, not only at IGNOU Headquarters but at other campuses also which have
added more versatility and life towards growth of the university. Classroom interaction will bring into focus
problems that students might be facing. Community College Scheme, Convergence Scheme, Associate
Studentship Scheme, Flexilearn Scheme have further brought education and knowledge in the reach of more
learners. A unique Course-wise Registration Scheme is also under launch through a separate prospectus where
any knowledge seeker can take any number of courses from IGNOU programmes without the restrictions of
age, qualification, pre-knowledge and knowledge and education in the subject.
Programmes have been conceived and run for the armed forces, such as Gyan Deep for the Army and Akashdeep
for the Air Force. A similar tie-up is at the anvil for personnel of the Indian Navy. Gyan Darshan, a 24 hour
educational TV Channel and Gyan Vani, a large cooperative network of FM radio stations are exclusively
12 IGNOU Common Prospectus
devoted to education. Efforts are now on for two-way teleconferencing, interactive radio counseling and for
relaying educational programmes through local FM radio stations.
IGNOU has witnessed all-round growth in terms of student enrolment, increase in the number of schools and
centres, study centres, regional centres, faculty and number of programme it offers. The facilities to students
in particular have considerably been stepped up. Seven Regional Evaluation Centres have been opened in
different zones of the country for timely declaration of results and evaluation of assignments. This expansion
is not just within the country but also across the globe where also the strength of learners is continually on
the rise. Not only this, IGNOU has the largest number of government-supported schemes in social and rural
development sectors.
The university recognizes the importance of sustainable and affordable high quality learning modules, courses
and programmes across disciplines and at diverse levels to meet the national mission–Education for all.
Come and join the University of Opportunities.
With best wishes,
(V.N. Rajasekharan Pillai)

1.5 Academic Programmes
The University offers both short-term and long-term
programmes leading to Certificates, Diplomas, Advance
Diploma, Associates Degree and Degrees, which are
conventi onal as wel l as i nnovati ve. Most of these
programmes have been developed after an initial survey
of the demand for such Programmes. They are launched
with a view to fulfil the learner’s needs for:
certification,
improvement of skills,
acquisition of professional qualifications,
continuing education and professional development at
work place,
self-enrichment,
diversification and updation of knowledge, and
empowerment.
1.6 Course Preparation
Learning material is specially prepared by teams of experts
drawn from di fferent Uni versi ti es and speci al i sed
Institutions in the area spread throughout the country as
well as in-house faculty. The material are scrutinised by
the content experts, supervised by the instructors/unit
designers and edited by the language experts at IGNOU
before these are finally sent for printing. Similarly, audio
and video cassettes are produced in consultation with the
course writers, in-house faculty and producers. The
material is previewed and reviewed by the faculty as well
as outsi de experts and edi ted/modi fi ed, wherever
necessary, before they are finally despatched to the
students, Study Centres and Telecast through Gyan
Darshan.
1.7 Credit System
The University follows the ‘Credit System’ for most of its
programmes. Each credit in our system is equivalent to 30
hours of student study comprising all learning activities
(i.e. reading and comprehending the print material,
listening to audio, watching video, attending counselling
sessi ons, tel econference and wri ti ng assi gnment
responses). Thus, a 4-credit course involves 120 hours of
study. This helps the learner to know the academic effort
he/she has to put in, to successfully complete a course.
Completion of an academic programme (Degree or Diploma)
requires successful completion of the assignments,
practicals projects and the term-end examination of each
course in a programme.
1.8 Support Services
In order to provide individualised support to its learners,
the University has a large number of Study Centres, spread
throughout the country. These Study Centres are co-
ordinated by 60 Regional Centres and Recognised Regional
Centres. At the Study Centres, the learners interact with
the Academic Counsellors and other learners, refer to books
in the Library, watch/listen to video/audio programmes and
interact with the Coordinator on administrative and
academic matters. The list of Regional and Study Centres
is given in this handbook. Support services are also provided
through Work Centres, Programme Study Centres, Skill
Development Centres and Special Study Centres.
1.9 Programme Delivery
The methodology of instruction in this University is
different from that of the conventional Universities. The
open university system is more learner-oriented and the
learner is an active participant in the pedagogical (teaching
and learning) process. Most of the instructions are imparted
through distance education methodology and face-to-face
mode as per the requirement.
The Uni versi ty fol l ows a mul ti medi a approach for
instruction, which comprises:
a) Self Instructional Written Material: The printed study
material (written in self-instructional style) for both
theory and practical components of the programmes
is supplied to the learners in batches of blocks for every
course (on an average 1 block per credit). A block which
comes in the form of a booklet usually comprises 3 to
5 units.
b) Audio-Visual Material Aids: The learning package
contai ns audi o and vi deo CDs whi ch have been
produced by the University for better clarification and
enhancement of understanding of the course material
given to the learners. A video programme is normally
of 25-30 minutes duration. The video cassettes are
screened at the study centres during specific sessions
which are duly notified for the benefit of the learners.
The video programmes are telecast on National
Network of Doordarshan and Gyan Darshan. All Gyan
Vani stations are broadcasting curriculum based audio
programmes. In addition, some selected stations of All
I ndi a Radi o are al so broadcasti ng the audi o
programmes. Learners can confirm the dates for the
programmes from their study centres. The information
is also provided through the university website.
c) Counselling Sessions: Normally counselling sessions are
held as per schedule drawn by the Study Centres. These
are mostly held outside the regular working hours of
the host institutions where the study centres are
located.
d) Teleconferences: Live teleconferencing sessions are
conducted via satellite through interactive Gyan
Darshan Channel as well as simulcasted on ‘Edusat’
channel from the University studios at EMPC, the
schedule of which is made available at the study
centres.
e) Practicals/Project Work: Some Programmes have
practical/project component also. Practicals are held
at designated institutions for which schedule is
provi ded by the Study Centres. Attendance at
practi cal s i s compul sory. For project work,
comprehensive project guide, in the form of a booklet,
i s provi ded to the student alongwi th the study
materials.
1.10 Evaluation System
The system of evaluation in IGNOU is also different from
that of conventional universities. IGNOU has a multi-tire
system of evaluation.
1. Self-assessment exercises within each unit of study.
2. Continuous evaluation mainly through assignments
which are tutor-marked, practical assignments and
seminar/workshops/extended contact programmes.
3. The term-end examinations.
4. Project works
IGNOU Common Prospectus 15
months and two years, respectively. There will be no
separate counselling or lab work schedule for the associate
students. They will have to be in touch with the Study
Center concerned in order to know the schedule and
participate in the sessions accordingly. Minimum period of
six months would be allowed, if the courses opted by the
students are up to 16 credits. If the option exceeds 16
credits, the minimum period would be one year.
Associate students would be permitted to seek admission
in any of the admission cycles and to opt the courses that
are on offer either in January or July cycle. However, no
counselling and/or lab/practicals would be conducted
separately for the Associate Students. In such a case the
students would be allowed to avail the counselling/
practical session in the next semester and accordingly the
minimum duration would be extended to another six
months. However, the maximum duration of two years
would remain unchanged.
If an Associate student opts for more than 16 credits worth
of courses in either of the admission cycles, he/she is not
entitled to seek admission in the next cycle unless the
prescribed minimum duration is completed, except in the
courses of Certificate Programmes.
Associate Students are not eligible to seek admission to the

2.12 MA in Participatory
Development (MAPD)
To facililate inclusive and sustainable development
Participatory development as an approach is integral
to current national and international development
practice and debate.
Those working in the development field need to
take into consideration new realities of constitutional
bodies like panchayats and municipalities, as well as
promote participation of marginalised sections
like tribals, dalits and women in development
programmes and projects. They need to be aware of
issues of democratic governance, which have
contributed to the empowerment of the poor and
marginalised women’s political empowerment and
recenl governmental interventions like the National
Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) and
Right to Information (RTI)
In addition the development agenda has generated
a growing demand for trained workers to manage
field-based development interventions. Many
government agencies, national/international NGOs,
donors as well as corporates are recruiting
development workers and professionals to undertake
challenging field responsibilities to ensure they are
implemented in a manner that supports participation
and ownership by local communities. Issues related to
management of development organisations are also
at the forefront of what is required of development
sector professionals.
Responding to these trends to build quality human
resources in the development sector, lGNOU and PRIA
have entered into a unique collaboration to design
and deliver MA participatory Development.
The main objective of the programme are:
To enable critical analyses of development
models, policies, processes and its
implementation.
To strengthen understanding of the concept and
practice of participatory development.
IGNOU Common Prospectus 143
To develop knowledge and skills for managing

2.19 Master of Science in
Counselling and Family Therapy
(MSCCFT)
(Offered in July Session only)
The M.Sc. programme in the area of Counselling
and Family Therapy is aimed at developing
professionals in this vital field, which is gaining
greater salience in the present times both from social
and employment perspectives. The contemporary social
scenario has resulted in an increased need and demand
for professional support in terms of counselling and
family therapy, which is being increasingly recognized
as an effective approach both for promoting positives
like strengthening family ties, fostering positive
parenting, and increasing resilience of individuals in
vulnerable situations as well as for addressing negative
aspects such as socio-psychological problems,
maladaptive behaviours, declining mental health,
and psychosomatic disorders that are being increasingly
witnessed in the present times. However, though the
need for counselling and family therapy professionals
is being increasingly felt, there is a dearth of
professional support and experts who could lend a
helping hand in promoting positive family processes
and help individual family members in distress in a
comprehensive way. As a result, there is a tremendous
felt need for education and training in this area. By
developing the requisite knowledge, understanding,
attitudes and skills in the area of Counselling and
Family Therapy, this unique programme of study would
help to train professional cadres in the field, equipping
them for both wage-employment and self-
employment, and thus fill the existing lacuna.
A remarkable feature of this programme of study
is its focus on the applied aspect and the thrust on
opportunities for hands-on experience for the learner.
In fact, almost half the credits of this Master’s Degree
Programme are ear-marked for application-oriented
learning opportunities. In the second year of the
programme, the learner has the option to be trained
in Marital and Family Therapy; Child and Adolescent
Counselling and Therapy; or Substance Abuse
Counselling and Therapy. Yet another special feature
of the programme is that it has a provision of exit
point for learners (after one year) in the form of
P.G. Diploma in Counselling and Family Therapy
(PGDCFT).
The programme has theory, supervised practicum,
internship, and dissertation as components. The
courses that comprise the Master’s programme, along
with the credit weightage, are as follows:
Number of Courses: 11

2.22 Master of Arts in Gender and
Development Studies (MAGD)
The programme is likely to be of interest to
academics and researchers; trainers, facilitators,
supervisors; staff of organizations working in the area
of gender and development; government personnel;
personnel working in banks financial institutions.
Development policies and practices have a differential
impact on women and men. This necessitates an
understanding of the “gender gap” in access to resources,
privileges, entitlements and choices. Consensus has evolved
around the need to explore the “gender gap” in key
development sectors and how this gap can be bridged. There
is now greater emphasis on main-streaming gender
perspectives into the development process. This will
contribute to building a gender-sensitive rubric of
development, recasting development theory and action in
the “direction of improved living standards, socially
responsible management and use of resources, elimination
of gender subordination and socioeconomic inequality as
well as to promote the organizational restructuring required
to bring about desirable change.”
Exploration of gender issues has become an
important activity for most non-governmental
organizations. Increasing emphasis is being laid in
Governmental agencies on establishing gender-
differential impacts and taking positive, affirmative
action towards gender equality and equity. It is now
widely acknowledged that gender considerations need
to be reflected in all development plans, programmes
and policies. There is growing concern over the
isolation of women in so-called “soft” sectors in
education, employment and development rather than
mainstreaming gender concerns across all
organizations, institutions and activities. While the
concerns are clearly articulated, national goals and
the UN millennium development goals cannot be
achieved without concrete effort towards gender
equality.
Achieving gender equality and gender equity
requires multi-pronged approaches and strategies. One
of the key approaches and strategies revolves around
design and development of suitable educational
programmes that equip practitioners and policy
makers with the requisite knowledge and skills to
make a valuable contribution in this sphere. The
Master’s/ Postgraduate Diploma programmes would
make an excellent foundation for analyzing, critically
assessing existing development interventions and
promoting gender-sensitive/gender-based research and
action. The strong focus envisaged on positive
affirmative action would be of considerable
significance.
Programme Objectives
The programmes seek to enable learners to:
analyze extent of gender-sensitivity of
development interventions;
conduct gender analysis;
critically analyze gender differentials in
selected development sectors;
identify appropriate research designs and
methodologies for a range of research
problems;
suggest positive affirmative action in
development planning and practice to promote
gender equity and equality
Broad Programme Structure
The broad structure for the Master’s Degree/ PG
Diploma in Gender and Development Studies uses a
modular approach.
The 1st Year courses if successfully completed would
earn the learner a Postgraduate Diploma in Gender
and Development Studies. If the learner continues
with the 2nd Year courses and successfully
completes them, the learner would earn a Master’s
degree in Gender and Development Studies.
Specializations according to the learner’s interest
could be chosen from a range of optionals using a
choice-based credit system.
1st Year : Compulsory Courses

3.4.4 How to Choose Courses for B.A./
B.Com./B.Sc./BSW
B.A.
We have already explained the number of credits to
be obtained in various categories of courses, viz.
Foundation, Elective and Application-Oriented Courses.
We discuss below the choices available in all these
groups.
Foundation Courses: In this category of courses, you
have to choose from the following:
FEG-1 or FHD-2
FEG-2 or BHDF-1 or any one of the listed Modern
Indian Languages.
FHS-1 (Foundation Course in Humanities and Social
Sciences), and FST-1 (Foundation Course in Science
and Technology) are compulsory. In first and second
year of study respectively.
Elective Courses: The main task is to select elective
courses. Please remember that as a learner in an
Open University you have this unique opportunity of
free choice of courses. You must have noticed that
the list of elective courses is very big and you have
to choose courses worth 56 to 64 credits from this
group. However, if you want to choose mathematics,
we strongly recommend that you should have studied
mathematics as one of the subjects at 10 + 2 level.
If you want elective courses in a particular discipline
you must take a minimum of 8 credits and a
maximum of 48 credits in that discipline.
B.A. (Major)
If you want to go for indepth study of one particular
discipline to obtain B.A. Major or you want to pursue
the same discipline for your postgraduate studies you
can select courses worth 48 credits from that
discipline. In B.A. option to do Major is available in
English, Hindi, Urdu, Economics, History, Political
Science, Public Administration, Sociology Philosophy
and Mathematics.
B.A. (General)
If you do not intend to specialise in one discipline
you can choose courses from various disciplines. Here
you will have to be careful. If you choose from many
disciplines you might end up doing one course from
each discipline which might not give you enough
knowledge in any of the disciplines. You should try to
select courses of your choice from 2 or 3 disciplines.
These courses would be available to you in a
phased manner i.e. some would be available in the
first year, a few more would be available in the
second year and the remaining in the third year. This
phasing has been done for the convenience of
counselling and examination. In this scheme all the
elective courses have been divided into 6 groups:
Group 1 - BEGE–101, EHD–1, EHD–5, EEC–11, EHI–1,
EHI–7, EPS–11, EPA–1, ESO–11, ECO–1,

(BPCE-022, BPCE-023,to be taken
together)
Only Group 1 and 2 courses are available in the first
year. In first year you have to choose courses worth
16 Credits only from elective courses. Select 8 Credits
from each group. Elective Courses from rest of the
group would be offered in second and third year.
You should offer elective courses in such a way that
overlapping is avoided i.e. you should offer courses of
8 credits from Group 1 and 8 credits from Group 2.
Application-Oriented Courses: In the third year you
have to take courses worth 8 or 16 credits from this
group. While selecting these courses make sure that
they are of use to you in the profession, you are
working in or intend to take up in future.

4.9 Post Graduate Diploma in
Clinical Cardiology (PGDCC)
(offered in July session only)
The School of Health Sciences, IGNOU in
collaboration with leading Cardiac Institutions in the
country, has developed and launched a two-year, full
time, Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Cardiology
(PGDCC) Programme for the MBBS doctors. This
programme was launched in January 2006 and at
present there are 296 students being trained under
300 Academic Counsellors in 56 Cardiac Institutes
across the country.
Indians are genetically three times vulnerable for
heart attack than Europeans. While the average age
of heart attack in Europe is more than 60 years, the
average age in India is between 40-45. Indians are
also genetically more vulnerable for diabetes at
younger age which again leads to premature
atherosclerotic disease leading to heart attack.
Cardiovascular diseases attributed to 25% of death
among the adult population in 2005. Therefore, India
with a population of over a billion requires at least
few thousand cardiologists to be produced every year
to address the growing needs of the heart patients.
Keeping the above in mind this “two year full
time” Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Cardiology
has been carefully designed and developed to address
societal needs to the deprived population at district
towns of the country.
Programme Objectives
To establish a core programme dedicated to train
medical graduates in clinical cardiology to deal
effectively with the early recognition, management
and prevention of common cardiovascular diseases
(Non invasive cardiology) and other life style diseases
such as, diabetes mellitus.

bodies like panchayats and municipalities, as well as
promote participation of marginalised sections like
IGNOU Common Prospectus 171
tribals, dalits and women in development programmes
and projects. They need to be aware of issues of
democratic governance which have contributed to the
empowerment of the poor and marginalised, women’s
political empowerment and recent governmental
interventions like the National Rural Employment
Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) and Right to Information
(RTI).
In addition, the development agenda has generated
a growing demand for trained workers to manage
field-based development interventions. Many
government agencies, national/international NGOs,
donors as well as corporates are recruiting
development workers and professionals to undertake
challenging field responsibilities to ensure they are
implemented in a manner that supports participation
and ownership by local communities. Issues related to
management of development organisations are also
at the forefront of what is required of development
sector professionals.
Responding to these trends to build quality human
resources in the development sector, IGNOU and PRIA
have entered into a unique collaboration to design
and deliver PG Diploma in Participatory Development.
The main objectives of the programme are:
To enable critical analyses of development
models, policies, processes and its
implementation.
To strengthen understanding of the concept and
practice of participatory development.
To develop knowledge and skills for managing
development projects and programmes in a
participatory manner.
To provide opportunities to experience the
process of participation in development and
governance interventions.
To strengthen understanding of key elements of
managing development organisations.

4.27 Post Graduate Diploma in
Educational Technology
(PGDET)
While classrooms with blackboards and printed
textbooks are still quite common, we are fast moving
towards a world where education is available anytime,
anywhere with the help of technology. Revolutionary
changes are taking place due to technology playing
an important role in educational processes. Even
within classrooms there is a paradigm shift and the
teacher is becoming a facilitator and manager of
learning as technology plays the role of a surrogate
teacher. Therefore, from merely having technology
at the periphery of the teaching-learning scenario
and using it occasionally, now there are thoughts of
integration of technology in teaching and training. In
view of these changes in the educational scenario, it
is important for teachers and trainers of the 21
st
century to be well conversant with the techniques of
integrating technology into the instructional system.
The programme, Post Graduate Diploma in Educational
Technology (PGDET) launched by IGNOU introduces
teachers, trainers and those involved in developing
educational softwares, to the field of Educational
Technology.
Objectives of the Programme
This programme aims to develop a cadre of teachers
and other professionals equipped with the knowledge
and skills for organizing teaching and training with the
help of appropriate technologies. The objectives of the
programme are as follows: -
The programme will help the learners to:
Develop an understanding of the nature of
educational technology and its impact on
teaching and learning;
Develop an awareness about the various
educational technologies and their pedagogic
uniqueness;
Develop the skills needed for making optimum
use of the technologies enabling collaborative
practices and sharing of educational resources;
Make judicious selection of technology and
integrate it successfully in the instructional
system;
Develop the know-how of designing and
developing courseware for various media.

important that policy planners are sensitive to
the impact of the developmental processes on
the marginalized communities. This programme

contact with more complex societies on the
marginal communities as tribes.

which culture manifests itself. It has the object

tribals, dalits and women in development programmes
and projects. They need to be aware of issues of
democratic governance which have contributed to the
empowerment of the poor and marginalised, women’s
political empowerment and recent governmental
interventions like the National Rural Employment
Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) and Right to Information
(RTI).

donors as well as corporates are recruiting
development workers and professionals to undertake
challenging field responsibilities to ensure they are
implemented in a manner that supports participation
and ownership by local communities. Issues related to
management of development organisations are also

Dear Sir,
The Standing Committee at its 237th meeting held at Utkal University and the 68
th

resolutions:
“Resolved that the examinations of one University should be recognized by another on reciprocal basis, provided that the entrance
qualification, duration of course and the general standard of attainment are similar to those prescribed by the recognized university.”
“Further resolved that in case of Degrees awarded by Open Universities, the conditions regarding entrance qualifications and duration of
the course be relaxed provided that the general standard of attainment are similar to those prescribed by the recognized university.”
The decision is brought to the notice of the Universities for favour of appropriate action in the matter. The additional information, if required

Thanking You,
Your faithfully,
