Abstract

The Faculty of Education prepared an action plan with the aim of improving the quality of different aspects of teaching practice of a professional training programme offered by the Open University of Sri Lanka. The  target group consisted of Lecturers, Master Teachers, School Mentors and student teachers who had been involved in the  teaching practice component of the  programme for sometime.  A variety of methods were used for collecting data which were analyzed and interpreted at different stages of the  project. Certain critical problems and issues were identified and suitable strategies to overcome the problems were explored. Further, the experience gained by implementing some of the best strategies was analyzed and possible changes that should be made to improve them further were discussed.  It was envisaged that the  whole activity would make a strong impact on the professional development of student teachers thereby improving the  quality of the  programme conducted by the Faculty.
