Process to pick guest lecturers gets underway

Department of Pre-University Education (DPUE) has begun preparations for selecting guest lecturers to fill up 1,349 posts. The vacancies will arise due to mandatory in-service BEd study programme for PU lecturers recruited in 2008-09.

These lecturers will be relieved from duties by January 26, according to PU department officials. “As many as 1,088 have registered. But all 1,349 will have to take part in the programme. We will ensure that guest lecturers are hired before January end,” DPUE Director Rame Gowda said. 

The guest lecturers will also have to undergo department training to familiarise themselves with new syllabus. This year, DPUE conducted training for PU lecturers teaching science stream, as many were finding the revised syllabus difficult. The training will continue next year too, and guest lecturers will be part of this training, Rame Gowda added. 

Apart from this, DPUE is in the process of charting out detailed list of vacancies. The Joint Director (Admin), has directed all deputy directors at district level to prepare list of all vacancies arising from those going for BEd course, so that newly recruited guest lecturers could be appropriately placed. 

On January 3, Centralised Admission Cell ( CAC) allotted 1,088 BEd seats in various colleges across the State to accommodate in-service candidates.

About 12 per cent of the seats in unaided colleges (out of 50 per cent of seats which is government quota) were set aside for in-service candidates this time.
