WELCOME TO Institute of Advanced Studies in Education

Institute of Advanced Studies in Education Jabalpur is one of the oldest teacher training institutes of India. In fact, it is as old as the schooling system in India. The schooling system in India emerged in the nineteenth century and this institution was established in the year 1889 which means it is a pioneer institute in the field of teacher education.

The origin of teacher education in India goes back to early nineteenth century. State initiatives for teacher education were ensured in 1815 which is, perhaps, the earliest recorded evidence in support of training of school teachers. Thomas Munro, the then Governor of Madras, submitted a detailed proposal for establishment of training schools in each collectorate in 1826. The Wood’s Despatch of 1854 also stressed the need of teacher training and stated that there was great deficiencies in the facilities of teacher training, and desired to see the establishment of teacher training institutes. As a result there was official acceptance of teacher training as an integral part of the education system and Normal schools were established for the purpose. In 1882 the Hunter Commission recommended necessary training for secondary teachers. It recommended that training should be a necessary precondition for employment in government and aided schools. As a result, by the end of the nineteenth century, six training colleges were established in Madras, Lahore and Kurseong (1886), Nagpur and Allahabad (1889/90) and Rajamundary(1894). The college established in Nagpur in 1889 was shifted to Jabalpur in 1902.

'स्पेन्स ट्रेनिंग कॉलेज ' से 'प्रगत शैक्षिक अध्ययन संस्थान ' तक महाविद्यालय का प्राचीन और गौरवशाली इतिहास है | 1889 में स्थापित यह महाविद्यालय 128 वर्ष का समय अपने कक्षों में संजोये हुए है | 


महाविद्यालय ने समय समय पर शैक्षिक समस्याओं का सामना किया और समाधान के रास्ते सुझाए हैं | चाहे वह विज्ञान शिक्षण का या शिक्षा नीति के निर्धारण का सवाल हो महाविद्यालय ने अपने संसाधनों से सकारात्मक और निर्णायक भूमिका अदा की है | 


आज शिक्षा में गुणवत्ता का सवाल समाज के हर क्षेत्र में उठा रहा है | यह सवाल उठना स्वाभाविक है, क्योंकि सर्व शिक्षा अभियान के प्रयासों से प्रारंभिक स्तर पर भले ही भौतिक संसाधनों व नामांकन में अभूतपूर्व उपलब्धि प्राप्त की हो लेकिन अध्ययन - अध्यापन में अपेक्षित गुणवत्ता लाना अभी शेष है | महाविद्यालय इस दिशा में कार्य करने हेतु संकल्पबद्ध है
