All programs are designed in a way that embraces theoretical, ‎pedagogical ‎and methodological dimensions of a particular field of study.

‎This broad range of domains ‎provides also a unique opportunity for disciplinary and thematic combinations of teaching, ‎research and innovation in education. ‎The Faculty addresses both theoretical and applied issues of contemporary ‎Nepali ‎Education, and maintains a constant focus on linking ‎the academic theory ‎with classroom experience, and teaching with research. The Faculty pays particular attention to the academic quality of teaching and the usage of ‎innovative approaches, modern research methods and ICTs tools for pedagogical practice. By pursuing high standards of teaching, it aims at shaping how people ‎teach, ‎learn, and ‎lead in schools and educational institutions country-wide. The Faculty is also engaged in scientific research that deals with many educational problems spanning a wide range of disciplines. Engaging research in fact ‎goes beyond the borders of the various disciplines and contributes to create a stimulating intellectual ‎environment for students and an inspiring research environment for talented ‎researchers.

The Faculty considers and regards at ‘students’ as the center of the University life and ultimate addressees of all academic activities. Thus, faculty teachers and members pay great attention in tailoring educational and learning interventions to meet the needs of individual students and equipping them with the ‎personal and professional skills required for a ‎successful educational career and help them to ‎become who they want to be! ‎
