  2. Know about children's thinking and learning processes, and their relationships.
  3. Refine skills of inter personal interactions with young children.
  4. Critically reflect upon the field experiences and link them with theoretical constructs.


Brief description of modules/ Main modules:

Internship for MA Education (ECCE students) have been designed to deepen students’ engagement with education as praxis and to develop professionals who understand the interrelationship between the theory and practice in the ‘field’ which includes development sector, state functionaries, centrally sponsored schemes and initiatives among others. During this field attachment, student will be placed at a field site for three weeks. This prolonged engagement will enable students to gain an “insider-outsider” perspective to the field and critically engage with questions around equity, quality and social justice related to learning and development of young children.
