The Department of Education, University of Chitral, since its inception on March 1, 2017, has been working towards enhancing the quality of teacher education to improve the quality of teaching and learning in schools. Quality of education cannot be achieved without promoting the culture of educational research and research-based classroom practices. One of the prime goals of the department has been to develop and promote scholarship and a culture of research in the field of education. In order to achieve this goal, the department is launching the University of Chitral, Journal of Education Research-UOCHJER. Prior to the establishment of the University of Chitral, there was no full-fledged institution of higher learning to promote a culture of research in Chitral. Teacher Education institutions in Chitral have been primarily preoccupied with the technical aspect of teacher education like instructional strategies and classroom management techniques.
