Media coverage of Vijaya Teachers College, Bengaluru (Bangalore) Karnataka, Karnataka

NAAC report of Vijaya Teachers College

SECTION 1
INTRODUCTION
On the request of the Vijaya Teachers College , Bangalore, the NAAC constituted a peer team comprising Prof Mohammad Miyan , Director , Centre for Distance and Open Learning, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi as the Chairman-Coordinator and Prof. D.N.Sansanwal, Director , Institute of Education, Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya, Indore and Prof(Mrs) Hemlata Parasnis , Dean , Faculty of Education, SNDT Women's University , Pune as members. The peer team visited the College on Feb. 16-17, 2005 for on spot validation of the Self Appraisal Report submitted by the College. The peer team interacted with the principal, the management , teaching and non-teaching staff, students, alumni, and parents/guardians. The team also looked into various documents and made an assessment of the infrastructure and physical facilities.

The college was established in 1960. It is a Govt. aided college and is affiliated to Bangalore University. The college is located in an urban area spread over a campus of 2 acres. There is only one course i.e. B.Ed. of one year duration, run by the college with an intake of 100 students. The course was recognized by the NCTE vide their certificate dated July 1, 1996 with an instruction to maintain staff-student ratio of 1:10. The certificate does not mention of any intake. The NCTE vide their letter no. Kr/SEC/SRO/NCTE/2001-2002/9374 dt. 17.1.2002 allotted 100 seats to the college for the session 2001-02 and has later given permission for the same up to the batch 2003-2004.

There are nine faculty members (including principal), of which only one has the doctorate degree in Education. Besides teaching staff, there are 5 personnel in administrative staff. The session generally starts late; the current session (2004-05) started in Dec. 2004. The college earlier had annual temporal plan and has now switched over to semester system from the session 2003-04. As regards the geographical profile of students, there were 87 students from the Karnataka state and the rest i.e. 13 from other states during 2002-03. Drop out rate has been 1-3 percent as reflected from the records of the last few years. Success rate is almost 100 percent. The unit cost is around Rs. 28,000/= There are sufficient infrastructure and physical facilities available in the college for running the course. The alumni association is quite active and contributes to the socio-emotional life of the college. The college is managed by the BHS Higher Education Society which also runs 15 other educational institutions in Bangalore and Mysore. The College was upgraded to CTE in 1997 and therefore it also organizes and conducts in-service programmes for school teachers.

SECTION 2
Criterion I : Curriculum Design and Planning
Admission are conducted by the state government through Common Entrance Test (CET) The ratio between merit seats and management seats is 75:25.The management quota is filled through interviews. State's reservation policy is strictly adhered to. The session generally starts in December and continues up to October the following year. During the session 2002-03 ; of the total 214 working days , teaching took place on 166 days. The University to which the college is affiliated has switched over to the semester system from the session 2003-04. As regards the practical work a student delivers 26 lessons including 2 criticism lessons and remains in the school for about 35 days. As a preparation to actual practice in schools , microteaching sessions are organized for 8 days. The faculty meticulously organises intricate sessions of microteaching and students practice under their watchful eyes. Lesson planning is considered an important input in the preparation for teaching practice. Faculty members take good care of training students in lesson planning too.. Immediately after the admissions, the college assesses the entry behaviour of students through content based achievement tests and groups are made accordingly. Advanced learners are engaged in challenging assignments and development of computer assisted packages. But strangely, there is no provision for helping disadvantaged students.

Syllabi are unitized and teachers prepare themselves well in advance by drawing course outlines. The college prepares the calendar which is generally adhered to. The college believes in 'Excellence in Teacher Education' and continues to strive to achieve the same. The college offers an elective 'Computer Education' which it claims is generally not the case with other institutions under the Bangalore University. Though the college has planned to introduce some short term courses but has not yet launched the same. College-community-school linkages are quite evident by the programmes organized by the college. Heads of the practicing schools are invited for functions organized by the college on one hand and on the other College organizes blood donation camps and Eradication of Superstition camps in the community. The colleges is trying to achieve the execution of internship programme which seems unlikely in the semester system. But a little less weightage to theory in the II semester would make it possible. Though there is no provision in the first semester for students to visit schools, the college makes it possible to arrange the visit for 2 days so as to enable them to complete the practical assignments related to theory papers.

Criterion II : Curriculum Transaction and Evaluation
Curriculum transaction is the most important input in the system of preparation of teaching personnel. The programmes may appear impressive or otherwise, its effective transaction could only be felt through the interaction with various stakeholders. The peer team has had intensive interaction with students, teachers and the personnel in the practicing schools. Visits to library, computer, E T and other laboratories , social studies and language rooms have been very useful in making the judgment.

Teachers use kannada and English in transacting theory papers. They adopt methods like lecture. Discussion, demonstration and seminar readings. The students seemed to be fully satisfied with the transactional strategies adopted by their teachers. They even go the extent of comparing the current programmes with the previous education they had and find their experince most rewarding. Teachers also often make use of the teaching aids themselves, thus demonstrating the importance of using multi sensory approach. The multimedia laboratory is well equipped and is often used by the teachers. It also has about 200 video cassettes , of which there are 20 related directly to different aspects of teacher education and the rest are on school subjects which are used by the students for refreshing their subject knowledge before starting their teaching practice.

The theory papers are of 100 marks each which are divided in the ratio of 3:1 for the term end examination and continuous and comprehensive assessment. The internal evaluation (CCE) is made up of the following components: One written Test( 10 marks), one practical assignment (05 marks) and a seminar paper( 10 marks ). The students are told in advance about the evaluation procedure at the time of orientation in the begining of the I semester itself.

As regards the teaching practice, a student delivers 12 lessons in each subject for which the college has provision of adequate preparation in the form of micro teaching , demonstration lessons and preparation of lesson planning etc. about which details have been given in the previous section. One important aspect, we would like to mention here that the Bangalore University prescribes less number of lessons than the NCTE norms. We also visited practicing schools and gathered that the pupil teachers were contributing significantly to the academic environment of the schools. Teachers in schools were happy on account of teaching aids which the pupil teachers use and leave them behind for regular teachers for later use. In a school we found sections of 109 students. For a pupil teacher a class of more than 30 students is not desirable.

The teachers are quite active academically. They regularly attend seminars, conferences and workshops but their publication out put is not up to the mark at all. Many of the teachers are members of academic bodies in the state and are also involved in policy decision making at various levels.

Criterion III : Research , Development and Extension
As Vijaya Teacher's College is an aided institution, the state government has sanctioned one post of Principal and nine posts of lecturer. All are in position but one Principal and six lecturers are getting the salary from the aid received from the State Government. The Management is paying to four staff members from its own funds. Thus, four posts have to be filled by the Management as per state government rules. Principal and four staff members need to acquire qualification as per NCTE. Five staff members have registered for their Ph.D. Degree. Majority of the staff members have attended Refresher Courses in Education organized by ASCs. Some of them have attended Seminars and Conferences but did not present paper. Except one staff members no one has published any papers. Although the college comes under 2(f) of UGC Act, but no staff members have ever made attempt to write proposal for getting grant from the UGC or any other funding organization. It is worth mentioning that one of the staff members has been able to get a grant of Rs. 88,000=00 from the MHRD under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan for conducting research. Staff members need to be motivated in taking up research work. If need be workshops in Research Methodology and Statistics be organized for the staff members. It will improve the research competency of their staff members. This is significant because the college intends to start M.Ed. Programme.

This college has been upgraded to the College of Teacher Education by the MHRD. The financial support has been provided by MHRD to build infrastructure. The grant has been utilized for the construction of building. The infrastructure is being utilized for organizing six to seven training programmes each of five to six days duration for school teachers. For conducting these programmes, the funds are given by the State Government. Number of training programmes depends upon the grant received from the State Government. The college is organizing some training programme in the use of computer with the help of INTEL group. The staff members are involved in conducting SIGMA Project for the benefit of the schools. The college is also helping Azim Premji Foundation in developing the software for the schools.

Criterion IV : Infrastructure and learning resources
The Vijaya Teacher's College is having three-story building. The rooms are very spacious. The college has well equipped laboratories, such as, Computer, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Language, Biology, Psychology, etc. Besides these, there is one room for indoor games, one girl's common room, seminar room, multipurpose room, and lecture rooms. In the Xth Five Year Plan, the UGC has sanctioned grants for Books & Journals; Equipment; Extension Activitis, PTAC and Building of Rs. 104,040.00; 190,740.00; 17,340.00; 17,340.00 and 17,340.00 respectively. From the released grant, the College has utilized Rs. 30,374.00 for Books and Journals and Rs. 108,000.00 for purchasing DLP. Remaining portion of the grant is yet to be received . The College is keeping the building neat and clean. The management gives the manpower for this work.

The College is computerizing the library. There are 12006 books, 987 reference books, encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc. The college is subscribing 14 Journals. They should subscribe more Journals as they are getting sufficient grant from the UGC. The Library remains open from 10.00 AM to 5.00 PM. The college timings are also the same. The students do not get time to use library. They want the timings of library to be different from the college. The college is in the process of developing Book Bank. At present no book bank is in operation. Each student is issued two books for a period of one week beyond which students have to give One Rupee per day as fine. The library does not have open shelves system. The library is having photocopier machine which can be utilized by the students for getting the photocopy of any page. The students are charged @0.75 paise per page. The librarian has retired and the Assistant Librarian is managing the library. He possesses B.Lib. and doing M.Lib through correspondence.

There are 17 computers in the computer laboratory. There is INTERNET connection only on one system. The students and staff members are allowed to use it whenever it is free. The computer laboratory has four hours battery backup. There is ICT compulsory paper for B.Ed. students. Under this the students learn MS Word, Power Point and Excel. The students should be given training in LOGO and other software, like, paint brush, Coral Draw, etc. It will improve the job opportunity of their students. The staff members should also be trained in the use of Computers. For using computer in research, the college should purchase SPSS and train the teachers in its use.

The Language Laboratory is being used for improving the communication skills of students. This laboratory needs to be modernized keeping in mind the latest technology available. The grant may be get from the UGC. The college should have facility for developing digitalized instructional material. The college needs to purchase Digital Camera and Non Linear Editing System. It will provide opportunity to teachers to use their competency and the same may be used for research.

Criterion V : Student Support and Progression
This parameter is very important and directly related to the progress of the institution. In the Vijaya Teachers College, the admissions to the B. Ed. Course are made as per the guidelines issued by the Department of the Public Instruction, following the centralized admission procedure. This admission procedure is explained in the brochure published by the Centralized Admission Cell established by the Govt. of Karnataka. Every year 100 students are given admission to this College as per the NCTE sanction. During the period of last three years, 75 seats out of 100 were filled through the centralized admission procedure and 25 seats by College authorities under Management Quota.

The College has printed its prospectus in 2003-04 after the annual pattern was changed to the semester system by the Banglore University.

In last three years it is observed that the drop out rate was 2-3% and 97-98% students out of 100 appeared for the University examination. As a part of quality-Check feed back from the students is collected informally. This needs to be converted into a formal practice. The economically backward and backward class (SC/ST, BCM ) students get scholarship from the State Govt. During the last three years about 100 (SC/ST, BCM ) students whereas about 15(EBL) students were the recipients of the Govt. scholarship. The handicapped students get scholarship from the Women and Child Development Department of the Govt.

The academic and personal counseling is provided to the students as and when they approach with personal problems. The placement service for helping the students in getting the jobs is in practice at informal level, this may be strengthened. Though official record is not maintained it was informed that almost all the students are employed who passed out during last three years.

The College has formed the Alumni Association, which has 200 members as on today. The B. Ed. Students passed from this College are holding responsible and prominent positions such as Heads of the High School, Principals of the B. Ed. Colleges and lecturers in D. Ed. and B. Ed. Colleges. The members of the Alumni Association support the College in various ways such as in preparing for inter-Collegiate music competition, as resource persons in many workshops. In addition to this every batch constitutes the Students' Association, which has many committees such as sports, reception, cultural committees. The students' Activity Centre has role in celebrating different Days e.g. Teachers' Day, Independence Day, Republic Day, World Environment Day etc.

Criterion VI : Organisation and Management
The Management and the Institution have to maintain congenial relations, mutual understanding and extend bilateral cooperation in order to achieve the goals of the Institution. The Management and the Vijaya Teachers College both are aware of this and it was evident from the discussion with them. The Governing Body of the College is also instrumental to this. It is composed of the President and Secretary of the Management (two representatives of the Management), two members of the College, the Principal and the University representative. During last three years the Governing body has approved all the recommendations of the Principal. The Management is supportive and progressive in the sense that it has extended financial support to purchase the computers for the B. Ed. Students, it is paying the salary of the three teaching staff members appointed in place of vacant positions which are grant in aid and reserved.

All sorts of resources are made available by the Management as and when requested and required by the College. Academic Calendar is prepared by the College in the beginning of the semester and made available to the students. All the staff members put in their efforts and views in preparing the calendar.No grievances are received by the Management because no such problems arise compelling them to approach the Management. The Principal and the Management get the audit done on regular basis.

In order to fill the vacant posts the use of the roster is made invariably. The posts are widely advertised in the local and the national newspaper. The selection committee to interview the candidates is constituted as per the Govt. Rules. It consists of the President and the Secretary of the management, the Principal, one Govt. nominee, one University nominee and two Subject experts.The Management has initiated some Welfare schemes for the staff members. Every staff member contributes 5% of his/her salary to the Welfare Fund. The Management also contributes equal share to this Fund. For personal reasons such as housing or health problems the employees get loan with a very low interest rate. For housing purpose loan up to Rs. One lakh is made available. At the time of retirement the contribution of the employee is returned. The College is preparing to apply for starting the M. Ed. Course in near future. It also desires to institute some short term course for teachers and parents.

SECTION - 3
Overall Analysis and suggestions
The college established in 1960 has now moved to the new building, the construction of which has been funded jointly by the Union MHRD and the Society. The college was upgraded to the CTE in 1997. Thus it is running both the pre service and in-service programmes in teacher education. The college intake for B.Ed. is 100 students. The students in B.Ed. course are, by and large from the Karnataka State. The teachers are sufficient in number but some of them are only graduates in academic discipline. Such teachers were appointed before new qualifications of the U.G.C. came into effect. The college has ample space for the required activities. The strategies of transaction are appropriate but the number of lessons a pupil teacher delivers is inadequate and below the norms of the NCTE. The college management does not intervene in day-to-day business but extends all possible help whenever it is required. There is no grievance redressal mechanism and the management feels no need of the same as there is hardly any grievance emanating from either the students or the teachers. Staff welfare schemes are in vogue as applicable to the state Govt. employees. The Alumni Association is headed by the principal of the college.

The College is doing well but needs to strengthen further in the areas of teachers' qualifications as well as professional development of the faculty. The peer team wishes the college a bright future.

Based on its observation and interaction with various groups of persons in the college , the peer team wishes to offer the following suggestions for the consideration of the college which are given below:

*There is need to further strengthen the computer laboratory and students be given more time to learn and practice.

*All teachers should make use of computers and ET facilities in order to demonstrate their utility and usefulness to pupil teachers besides making their teaching more impressive.

*The students should make use of the power point presentations prepared by them during practice teaching.

*The teacher should undertake some research projects and publish papers.

*The Alumni Association should be left independent of the influence of the management. The Principal or faculty member should not occupy any position of office bearer.

*The college should impress upon the University to modify the B. Ed. Curriculum according to the NCTE and UGC guidelines.

*The library timings should be increased for the benefit of the students.

The peer team wishes to place on record its appreciation and gratitude for the cooperation and help extended by the Management, Principal and the faculty in executing on the spot validation of their Self Appraisal Report. The peer team is also grateful to the management , non- teaching staff, Alumni, Parents and students for the useful interaction the peer team had with them.
