ROLE OF TEACHER IN QUALITY RESEARCH: BASIC TEACHER COMPETENCIES
The purpose of research is to inform action. Research must always be of high standard in order to construct knowledge that is relevant or appropriate outside of the research setting with inference that goes beyond the group that has participated in the research. Furthermore, the finding of the study should have implications for policy and project implementation. From the past few years there is rapid increase in the research work. So it is a duty on the part of teacher to conduct and guide his/her students for quality research. There should be some competencies in teacher that help him to conduct a quality research. The present theoretical paper highlights the basic competencies of teacher that helps in quality research.

ENRICHMENT OF TEACHING PROFESSION THROUGH INQUIRY: VALUE OF TEACHER RESEARCH
Teachers are among the oldest of society’s occupational groups. The status of teaching as a profession, however, has developed in comparatively recent times since this profession involves activities which are essentially intellectual. Besides this quality this profession commands a body of specialized knowledge requires extended professional preparation, exalts service above personal gain and last but not the least demands continues in-service growth. A teacher engages himself in a variety of in-service growth activities but the most important one is research and writing because research influences the kind of teaching a teacher is doing but the gulf between the two can at times seem large. This paper examines the value of teacher research which lays the bases or foundation for nurturing professional and personal growth through inquiry.

MOTIVATING TEACHER EDUCATORS FOR INCLUSIVE EDUCATIONThis paper attempts to study Motivating Teacher Educators for Inclusive Education and stresses the need for motivating and inculcating teachers to identify Special children in their classroom. Providing a quality education for all students in inclusive settings has been identified as perhaps the most challenging, yet most important, issue in education. To be ready for that future we must prepare teachers who can teach in settings that are inclusive, meeting the needs of all students. This will require a different model of teacher education. The necessary knowledge and skills to teach in inclusive classrooms, this need extends to all teachers, not just special education teachers, as all teachers are now likely to have students with disabilities. The current educational system encourages an inclusionary setting for all special needs students, and this setting is supported by federal laws. The goal of this model is to enhance teacher performance with assistive technology and students with disabilities, enabling equal access to educational situations and materials in the least restrictive environment

EFFECTS OF GLOBALLIZATION ON TEACHING AND LEARNINGAs we are living in the “Era of Globalization”. Each field of the society is affected by globalization in many ways. It creates variety of complex trends in the economic, social and cultural fabrics of all societies. We live in an intensely interdependent world in which all immense differences of culture and historical experience are compressed together in instant communication. The international transactions in services are defined as the economic output of intangible commodities that may be produced, transferred and consumed at the same time. Traditionally services are viewed as domestic activities due to direct contact between producer and consumer and government monopoly in infrastructure sector. The emerging digitization concept has altered this perception. The ascent of information and communication technology has given rise to e-commerce, e-banking, e-learning, e-medicine and e-governance. So, it is argued that government finds it increasingly difficult to cope up with technology-driven activities. Because of that Nowadays Education has turned out to be a commodity of international trade. It is no more a public good on domestic scale, but a private good on global scale. Globalization brings education to the front lines. In the prevailing discourse, education is expected to be the major tool for incorporation into the „knowledge society‟ and the technological economy. In this paper writer want to throw light on effects of globalization on teaching and learning. Key words: Globalization, Effects, Teaching, Learning
