Neohumanist Teacher Education is offered through Ananda Marga Gurukula. It is based on personal development, interpersonal competence, ethics, social responsibility, and universal love. The programmes are designed to synthesize current findings from the emerging neohumanist pedagogy, developmental psychology, cognitive research and educational research.

We believe that we and our students should be prepared to structure and facilitate learning experiences that can lead to learning and teaching through inquiry, research and reflection. We believe that the most effective education occurs when it is shaped around the student. There is emphasis on individual needs and interests within the curriculum. The Programmes present a process of learning that is flexible and interactive. They vary from conventional courses to independent study, workshops, group studies, seminars and field experience.

Ánanda Márga Gurukula presently is offering two Distance Learning Programmes in Neohumanist Teacher Education.
