About  Human Resource Development Centre

 

The Human Resource Development Centre (HRDC), Panjab University, was one of the first colleges to be established in the country in October, 1987 immediately after the NPE highlighted the need to have such centres.

 

HRDC, Panjab University has in the last 25 years carved out a niche for itself not only in the University academic/administration setup but also in the Northern region and in the country.  It is now seen by peers as an indispensable institution which nurtures the teaching prowess of the young faculty and provides sharpened skills and an empowered attitude to tackle the professional challenges. HRDC, Panjab University prouds itself not for the grand infrastructure not for the quantity of training programmes it churns out but more so for the spirit of serious pedagogy that it has been successful in inculcating in its trainees inspite of several types of resistances from different fronts.  That teaching profession is one of the most challenging and difficult of the pursuits, yet through a will to learn the ropes, by mastering the skills of good pedagogy and by maintaining a positive and balanced motivation a newly inculcated teacher can turn into a great resource for the institution, for the society and for the nation, this is what the HRDC, Panjab University believes in and this is what we practice in our programmes.  That we have crossed the number of 10,000 teachers who have trained from our college, out of which a substantial number is that of teachers coming from out of catchment and that we seldom have a dearth of applicants proves the quality of our programmes.
