CRITERION WISE ANALYSIS
Criterion I - Curricular Design and Planning
The B.Ed., programme was introduced by the Bhilai Maitri College in the academic year 2003-04 and M.Ed., course in 2006. The College is affiliated to Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University, Raipur. Admission to the B.Ed., Course was earlier done on the basis of marks obtained in the qualifying Degree Examination. Now, form the academic year 2006-07 it is being done by the state government on the basis of merit rank obtained by the candidates in the common entrance test conducted by the state government.[SCERT]. Admission to the M.Ed., Course is done on the basis of marks obtained in the B.Ed., degree examination. The level of teacher trainees with whom the peer team interacted appears to be good.
The B.Ed., programme is being implemented from the academic session 2003-04 and has already completed three years of its existence. Three batches of student teachers have already completed
their training. (2003-04 pass percentage 99%; 2004-05 pass percentage 97%; 2005-06 pass percentage cent percent).
The courses of study developed by the R.S.University, Raipur are followed. Teachers are allotted subject of teaching according to their specializations. There are six theory paper and the number of practical activities is eight. The B.Ed., and M.Ed., syllabuses are prepared, approved and prescribed by the University. The B.Ed./M.Ed.,syllabuses has been adapted from the courses framed by the UGC in the discipline of Education.
At the time of inspection on March 12th and 13th 2007, the fourth batch of student teachers was studying. The students were appreciative of the programme. They learnt to be punctual and hard working.
The academic session starts in the last week of June and admission are complete by the end of July. The academic session is up to the month of April. The total working days are around 240.
Out of this number of teaching days in 2004-05 were 172. However, parents pointed out that the counseling is done very late by the SCERT and the admission process is delayed. Pre-practice in teaching, that is Pre-Internship is of three week's duration and practice teaching is of 40 days duration is organized. The college sends it students for practice teaching to about 15 schools which is adequate as per the suggestion of NCTE. Number of lessons taught by the trainees is 40. The trainees are oriented to the skill of teaching through micro teaching approach. The peer team asked the trainees about the relevance of microteaching in the context of ICT. Some of the students were provided extra academic help after the regular teaching hours. Students are required to maintain their diary listing the various tasks which they are required to complete. The college claims that for the harmonious development of teacher's personality and for sending better individuals to the society various activities are organized including one day camps in the rural areas, which is staggered over the period the entire academic session. The activities organized during the camp include the survey of literacy, family planning campaign, health awareness and thing like AIDS awareness programmes. The peer team suggested that this camp could be of longer duration.
The college has developed a separate craft room, where the visiting team found record of Art work. The college has got the services of an Art teacher who has qualified herself from Khairagarh University. But the syllabus has no provision of Art & Craft subject, though there are a large number of elective subjects. Various activities are organized by the college in addition to the curricular areas. The six activities for the B.Ed students include the following.
Seminar- for the development of communication skills, (2) Daily Activities-for the management of routine activities including decoration, (3) Cultural Activities-for creating national integration, (4) Community Camp-to create awareness regarding health, environmental conservation, women education and such other real life needs of our people, (5) Debate competition-to develop skills of expression and exchange of ideas, and (6) Evaluation-regular Monday tests, assignments, and model examinations.
The college takes feedback from the heads of practicing school's, by filling in the follow-up proformas and tries to overcome the deficiency in teaching by the student teachers. As for the teaching of new emerging areas of education like inclusive education, new school experiences and environmental education etc. the staff requires some kind of orientation. But practice teaching, community work and craft activities (SUPW) are organized properly. The college also arranges lectures by the outside experts in subjects in areas like personality development and value education.
Criterion II - Curriculum Transaction and Evaluation
This criterion mainly deals with the implementation of pedagogy courses, teaching subjects and practical experiences. Implementation of evaluation procedures and practices are also included in the criterion component.
The institution has physical facilities in the educational technology including OHP, LCD and computers. The visiting peer team could ascertain that the students have developed interactive abilities. But the use of computers has to be improved.
Transaction of pedagogy theory courses and method is necessarily done by lectures delivered by the faculty on the co0ntents of the syllabus. Fro practice teaching pedagogical content analysis is done. For developing the core teaching skills, microteaching approach is followed. The peer team tried to ascertain form the students, whether alternatives to microteaching are available from other sources, particularly media, the students were not aware. Awareness about models of teaching is done but practice in these is required.
Though it appears that illustrations of models of teaching are not easy. Supervision by the methodology experts and feed back by the peers enable the trainees to improve their teaching abilities. The students appear in the internal tests which are oganised on Mondays. But is is noticed that the number of tests are too many. These need to be reduced and more time is to be given for class room instruction.
The peer team visited a practicing school (DAV School, Bhilai) where the trainees undergo practice in teaching. The schools accommodate the trainees according to its convenience. The peer team interacted with the Regional Director of a
DAV organization, Principal of the school and in-charge of practice teaching. Though the teachers participated and guide the trainees in the teaching of lessons, yet they are not a part of the assessment system. There is further need of close collaboration in the planning of teaching.
for which the school is willing to cooperate/collaborate. The school is following the CBSE syllabus, yet they are not aware of the National Curriculum Frame work developed by the NCERT in 2005. Thus the trainees could not know about the thrust/new area of teaching like ET, Environmental Education and Heritage Education which is a new area of study. The trainees do participate in school activities, and they require awareness about the completion of registers and records.
Criterion III - Research, Development and Extension
The college is having both B.Ed., and M.Ed., programmes. Two of the members are in the final stages of completing their Ph.D., in Education. Faculty members are being encouraged to take up research activities and also develop their professional competencies. The students of the college are engaging in a number of field oriented programmes by collecting data for conducting community based activities, and thus are provided training in the basic skills of data collection.
The college management has prepared and submitted a project on 'Women and Child Welfare' to the central government and it is in process with the Ministry of Child and Women Development. Further, two faculty members' published two papers in Journal of Recent Researches in Education and Psychology. The study was on the attitudes of students towards the selection criteria in engineering courses, and the other paper published was on the topic'Rrole of teacher as a Educational and Vocational Guide in the formation of an ideal modern India. (Journal for Teacher Education, 'Chetana'). It was also reported that one of the faculty members, undertook
study of emotional competencies of 11th grade students of residential schools in Bhilai and the report is ready for publication. The present Principal has attended a workshop of state level where she presented a paper on 'Role of Peer group in micro teaching'. This indicates that the faculty has orientation, interest, and as well competency to plan, and carry out research of importance.
Criterion IV _ Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college has adequate number of class rooms and laboratories, and also enough funds to provide all the necessary infrastructural facilities needed for proper transaction of B .Ed., and M.Ed., programme. Personnel are made In charge for the construction and up keep of the facilities.
Hostel accommodation for women students of both B.Ed., and M.Ed., programmes with a provision for thirty student teachers are available.
For uninterrupted power supply and water provisions are made with inverter, and submersible pump set in the college campus itself. Six overheads tanks with total capacity of ten thousand liters of water storage are provided.
The staff and student teachers are provided with health check up and there is a provision to refer the trainees to local multispeciality hospital in the Bhilai Steel Plant.
Learning resources are provided through the library which consists of a total of about five thousand books for B.Ed., about twelve hundred for M.Ed., and few Journals in Education are available. However, the Book bank facility and also increasing the number of standard books for reference need to be added soon. The library has a computer wherein the book catalog is kept but the entire process of issuing can also be computerized and modernized.
The Psychology laboratory has psychology equipment and paper and pencil tests. All the student teachers are given training to make use of at least five psychological tests. The Educational Technology (ET) laboratory has slide projector, DVD player, color TV, OHP equipment. Audio visual aids, models prepared are kept in the laboratory. Charts and model are purchased and also kept in the laboratory. The computer laboratory is equipped with seventeen computers with internet connection facility. Student teachers prepared and kept some CD's in the computer laboratory.
The furniture is just acceptable level and the number of student desks is 160 two seaters, 100 single seating desks, and 30 chairs and tables, layed down in class rooms, laboratories, and staff room.
Provision is made for indoor and out door games. This need to be expanded further to provide opportunity for all the student teacher.
Criterion V - Student Support and Progression
The student support service and progression of any institution reveals the internal efficiency and quality of the institution. In this market oriented economy the product must be salable so also the student teachers of the institution are to be employable.
Through advertisement and publishing the prospectus on notice board as per the University norms, the institution made known clearly the admission policies. For the past three years the institution had been producing hundred percent pass in the B.Ed., degree examinations. In this academic year they started the M.Ed., programme and about ten students of this college were given admission for the higher education.
As it is a self financial institution they offer fee concession to the very needy students. The guidance cell in the college provides personal, educational and even marriage counseling to the student teachers. The alumnus is very happy about the consoling provided by the college to develop self confidence, good moral, ethical, and healthy habits. The institution offers recreational facilities through indoor and outdoor activities, like sports, games, yoga and video programmes. Importance was also given to cultural activities. The placement service cell of the college with carrier guidance may be strengthened for student progress and seeking better employment opportunities to the prospective teachers.
Criterion VI - Organization and Management
Effective management gets things done. The educational agency consists of seven members who are very industrious, with team spirit, look after the administration of the college. The expertise already they have in running a higher secondary school, Nursing college, and a Dental college augment their organizational and administrative efficiency in running this College of Education. Resources are made available readily by the management as per the requirement of the institution. As per the norms of the NCTE the management maintains an endowment fund of Rupees Five laks and a reserve fund of Rupees Three laks as FD in the State Bank of India, Indira place branch, Bhilai.
Though young, the institution is sensitized to modern managerial concepts such as strategic planning, implementation of quality management system, welfare system, and grievance redressal system which are reflected while referring through various committees formed in the college and interaction with the alumni, parents, students, non-teaching, and teaching staff of the college. The wards of the college were given free education in their school and fee concession in the dental, nursing and college of education. The administrative staff were allowed for computer training by providing fifty percent of the cost, to improve their professional efficiency.
The teaching staff were recruited by a selection committee constituted as per the norms of the government. The University nominee, the subject experts, management members, and principal, constitute the committee.
The college maintains records of the various academic, administrative, and financial aspects of the college in an orderly form. Even though the college has no internal audit mechanism to monitor the financial matters, an external audit was carried out regularly and there were no audit objections. It seems that the management is proactive in dealing with staff and students and developing the institution as a quality one.

The Bhilai Maitri College, Bhilai was originally started for B.Sc. and B.Com., programme in the year 2003. Considering to the need of qualified teachers, the college management switched over to the professional course in the first instance in 2003 and M. Ed. programme after three years in 2006. The peer team's interaction with the trainees of the current batch was quite encouraging. The students are highly satisfied with the support extended by the Principal and management.
The peer team members had interacted with five parents and guardians of former students with a view to knowing their general impression about the programme. They informed that counseling for the admission is done very late. Due to this admissions were delayed. The institution also charges fees decided by the affiliating university. By and large the B. Ed., programme is going on well, as perceived by the parents. They were also impressed with the punctuality of the college. With the B. Ed. Training, their wards have developed self management capacity.
There is perceptible behavioral change in them which is good for the family and society at large. The parents suggested that the state government should recruit only trained teachers so that only those who have qualified as teachers get the chance to serve in the schools.
The efforts of the management to further expand the facilities and infrastructure should continue as the students requested for development of playgrounds, a lawn and a full fledge canteen to be started. However the peer team would like to make a few suggestions for the attention of the management, faculty and support staff.
There is a need to carve out a separate department of education in the Bhilai Maitri College for the B. Ed. & M.Ed. programme. It will give a proper identity to the education discipline which is a major programme of the college.
The students pointed out that the existing elective courses need to be expanded to include a few more need based courses like Environmental education, Computer education, Online education, Peace education etc.
The available furniture's in the classroom, assembly hall and laboratories need to be made more comfortable for the students.
For practice teaching the college needs to make a policy regarding joint meeting of college faculty and teachers of practicing school regarding unit planning, lesson planning, utilization of charts and models available in the school and involvement of teachers in supervision and assessment.
More and resent books and journals on Education may be added to the library and reprographic facilities may be installed in the library. Library computerization has also become necessary. Recently developed National curriculum framework 2005 and related school textbooks need to be added to the library.
Steps may be taken by the management to strengthen the research aspect by encouraging staff to enable them to complete their M. Phil. and Ph. D degrees so that they can involve more professionally in guiding their student's dissertation/ thesis in education.
The duration of community development camps need to be increased to at least one week. Help of voluntary bodies could be taken in this regard. It will be better if the college adopts certain nearby villages for community development work.
The students are enrolling themselves as members of Alumni Association. More contact with the Alumni may be made to get feedback about the innovative functioning of institutions where the former students are teaching.
It would be better to have a placement cell in the college so that qualified teachers may be selected for postings in rural / tribal areas.
The peer team appreciates the cooperation extended by the Management, the Principal, the teaching and non-teaching staff and the students and wishes the college a bright future.
