Abstract: The role of teachers is undergoing a paradigm shift in the present education scenario. During earlier days, teachers played the role of tutors and were highly subject oriented. They were not expected to do anything other than mere teaching. They were considered as instructors. With advancement in technology the role of the teachers became as that of a guide and the teachers were leading the students. In the present era of knowledge explosion, the teachers have to be facilitators. They learn along with the students. The role of the teachers has thus undergone a paradigm shift from that of instructors to leaders to learners. This paper makes an earnest attempt to study the role of teachers working for Government and Private Arts & Science Colleges and Engineering Colleges. An attempt has been made to study the association between the different parameters for evaluating the role of teachers working under various streams and different sectors.
