MYSORE: The joint director of the National Council of Educational Research and Training, G. Ravindra, on Friday stressed the importance of research to improve school system in the country.

Addressing the faculty of the Regional Institute of Education (RIE) and Demonstration School (DMS) here, Prof. Ravindra, who served as the RIE principal, said teachers would have to look beyond teaching to take up research work, especially in the areas which related to teacher commitment and related values. “There is a need for research on how exactly learning takes place, learning styles and learning process,” he said.

He said the NCERT would encourage research work by teachers and others through its Educational Research Innovative Committee section of the Department of Educational Research and Policy Perspectives.
