Ambedkar University Delhi : School of Education Studies - AUDSES Delhi - AUDSES
AUD is a public University with a campus-based, unitary structure with research, postgraduate and undergraduate programmes in the social sciences and the humanities.Bharat Ratna Dr B.R. Ambedkar Vishwavidyalaya, Delhi (Ambedkar University, Delhi or AUD) was established by the Government of the NCT of Delhi through an Act of the State Legislature in 2007. The University is named after Dr B.R. Ambedkar, the visionary Indian reformer, who believed in education as the right weapon to cut social slavery… (which) will enlighten the downtrodden masses to come up and gain social status, economic betterment and political freedom.”SES is envisioned to evolve as a community of professionals and scholars endeavouring to understand education in its historical and contemporary contexts through engaged scholarship and practice. The School aims to bridge the gap between the theory and practice of education in its multiple locations – in that it attempts to foster greater convergence between the study of education as a social phenomenon and the preparation of professional educators. In this context, the School has been working towards development of a rigorous praxis-based theoretical perspective for analysis and research while engaging with teacher education, pedagogy, curriculum, policy, planning and administration.In pursuit of its vision, SES launched MA Education in 2012. It is a part of the School’s endeavour to bring in convergences between the professional and the liberal dimensions of education. SES also proposes to launch MPhil/PhD, pre-service teacher education, certificate/diploma programmes in education in the near future.
