Abstract


In present scenario, Economics is the pathway to progress and prosperity. It studies systematically and methodically the economic network of society. NCF (2005) remarked that the boundaries of the discipline need to be opened up and the plurality of approaches may be adopted to understand a given phenomena. It was suggested that the shift from mere imparting of information to involvement in debate and discussion would keep both learner and teachers alive to social realities. An understanding of the experiential base of children is also important in the choice of pedagogy (position paper of NCERT, 2006). Opinion of laments that “we spend too much time forging theoretical tools and too little time in trying to make practical use of them. If this situation still continues then it will be difficult to fulfill the expectations from the various higher education programmes as it is essential to develop higher order cognitive abilities of analysis, synthesis, evaluation and creativity in the students to achieve the goal of producing competent skilled force (cited in Aggrawal, 2007). Therefore, there is dire need to use innovative methods, techniques, approaches for teaching Economics. Innovative i.e. Inquiry, demonstration, discussion, observation, situational presentation, problem solving, current affair based, field based, skill based experiencing, digital proficiency can be used for teaching Economics.
