Section 2: Criterion-wise analysis and evaluation
Criterion I: Curriculum Design and Planning
The College of Education has articulated its vision and goals. They reflect both the core social values as well as scientific temperament. The Vision, Mission and Goals are made known to the stakeholders through prospectus. The same are prominently displayed in the college. The College ensures faculty development and organizes extra curricular programs for the students to achieve the goals.

The institution is translating these goals into specific actions. These are supplemented by host of value addition courses. The goals and objectives of the institution are explained to the students. A questionnaire is given to students to study their expectations from the college and these are taken note of in planning the college activities.

The college offers programmes at the graduate (B.Ed) level in the discipline of Education. The B.Ed programme is run according to the semester system. The college is affiliated to Karnatak University and as such uses the curriculum developed by the university. However, many of the faculty from this college has contributed significantly in the development of this curriculum. The faculty was also invited to edit the Curriculum before it was made available to all the colleges. The curriculum reflects global trends like Computer Education, Environmental education, Value education, Skills and strategies of teaching as well as ICT in education.

The B.Ed. programme has total marks 1650. Out of these, 350 marks are for Practice teaching making it 60% for theory, 20% for practice teaching and 20% for practicum. In addition to 4 core papers in each semester, B.Ed offers 2 elective options viz. Action Research and Population Education. The college is planning to introduce Environmental Education as the third elective from this year.

Due provision is made for practice teaching, school experience and work experience (by introducing SUPW). The college also practices Inclusive education by admitting students with special needs. During the year 2006-7 there are 2 physically challenged student.

The annual planning of curricular and co-curricular activities is made keeping in focus the
core values. The planning is done at the beginning of the academic year in consultation with the teaching staff. An academic Calendar is drawn up indicating various curricular and co-curricular programmes and staff members in-charge of the same. The calendar is prepared in graphical format, which is very attractive.

The college gets feedback from students on academic programmes (through evaluation proforma as well as orally to the Principal and the management representative), alumni (informal), Heads of practicing schools (oral reports about trainees' performance), and parents and academic peers (informal). The college may think of developing proper formal system of feedback on various aspects from various stakeholders.

Criterion II: Curriculum Transaction and Evaluation
Admission process in the college is transparent. Since the college is unaided, out of 100 seats, 50 seats are filled through the centralized admission process initiated by the Government of Karnataka and the KLES Management admits 50 candidates. Government of Karnataka selects candidates on the basis of entrance test and roster.

For admitting 50 candidates the college follows certain procedure. Admissions are given according to NCTE and State Government norms. 50% seats are allotted to the candidates from reserved category and 50% from Open/general category. In case applications from reserved category are not received, then those seats are allotted to general category students. During the year 2006-07, only 79 students got admitted and 21 seats are lying vacant.

The admission committee constituted by the management takes all the decisions about admissions and monitor the same. The college programs are published in the prospects and are made known to the prospective candidates. The college could think of developing a website.

Total working days are 260 and teaching days are 210. Number of students admitted during 2005-06 was 100 but the number dropped to 79 in the year 2006-07.

Prior to commencement of practice teaching all the students are administered a content test. The students who score low on this test are guided in the content areas.

The institution engages students in active learning by organizing seminars, workshops, group discussion, quiz competition etc. and provide environment for the same. Various instructional strategies are used in order to make the teaching learning process learner centered.

Before going for practice teaching (in first semester) students are exposed to Micro-teaching (6 skills). Each student has to give 6 micro lessons (3 in each method). Two innovative lessons are practiced in simulated conditions during second semester.

Pre-practice teaching days are 12 and practice teaching days are 24. The number of schools identified for practice teaching is 15. The college selects about 12 schools in rotation for stray and block lessons each year as practice teaching schools. During pre-practice teaching, workshops on lesson planning, microteaching, preparation of teaching aids etc. Students work in small group.

Practice teaching plans are developed in collaboration with the Principals of cooperating schools. The Principal conducts meeting of Principals of all the cooperating schools, in the college before beginning of the practice teaching session and discusses the planning of the practice teaching, difficulties faced by the students during the previous year etc. Planning for stray lessons and Block teaching lessons is done in consultation with the Principals of the cooperating schools. Generally 10-12 students are sent to one school. Students conduct 8 stray lessons during first semester and 16 during block teaching in second semester.

The scheme of evaluation is made known to students at the beginning of the academic year. Theory papers are evaluated 20% internally and 80% externally. The semester end examination is given 80% weightage. One periodic test of 10 marks and one assignment of 10 mark for each paper form a part of internal assignment (20%). Assignments include preparation of teaching aids, programmed learning material etc. Students work in small group.

The college has adequate ICT facility. There are 13 computers (both P III and P IV) with a LAN and BSNL Broadband connectivity facility. It has two LCD Projectors and other audio-visual equipment. The college is developing its Language laboratory in phased manner.

Criterion III: Research, Development and Extension
Institute offers action research as one of the electives. This provides an excellent opportunity for the students to conduct Action Research. The college should explore this opportunity and involve the students in planning and conducting action research.

The Principal has acquired Ph.D. degree in 1992. The staff members are pursuing their Ph.D. degrees. One has received Ph.D. and two have submitted their Ph.D. theses in Education and History respectivity. Two have registered for Ph.D. and two for M. Phil. Studies in Education. There is no Major or Minor Research Project (UGC sponsored) undertaken by any faculty. This could be further explored.

The college has developed instructional material like Linear Programming text, workbooks, resource units, as well as teaching aids. B.ED. trainees also develop PowerPoint slideshows.

The college organizes workshops. During the year 2005-06 two workshops were organized for the lecturers of colleges of education affiliated to Karnataka University.

The college conducts various community welfare activities. One such activity is Citizenship Training Camp, which is conducted every year in different villages. The concepts of cleanliness, health and hygiene, Aids awareness are introduced through lectures, talks, and shramadan. Other community engagement activities include blood donation camp etc.

The college has developed a network with local co-operating schools through practice teaching, placement, alumni etc. it also has established linkage with national level organization like IGNOU. The college is a study center for IGNOU B.Ed. course.

Strong linkages with Education Department of Karnatak University are developed and the college participates actively in various academic ventures (like semesterization of B.Ed. curriculum) taken up by the university.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college functions from a building shared by 3 more institutions viz. Law College, Nursing College and College of Business Administration. The college uses about 9000 sq. ft. area for instructional purposes wherein Multipurpose Hall, lecture Rooms, Psychology Lab, Educational Technology cum Language Lab, Seminar Room, 8 Staff Rooms, Computer Lab, etc. are created. Science Lab is situated in a very small size room. There are no separate method rooms, which could be developed.

The institution has adequate facilities for co-curricular activities. The students use a playground of about 65000 sq. ft. area, which is shared with other institutions including a school. Separate hostels for boys and girls, Canteen, Staff Quarters as well as Parking area are available in the premises. Only 7 girl students take advantage of hostel facilities.

All the physical Infrastructural facilities are maintained and upgraded as and when necessary by the management.

The college used the Infrastructural facilities optimally. The multipurpose hall and other facilities are made available to sister institutions as well as government agencies (for their examination) only on Sundays. The college uses the Infrastructural facilities to its fullest. The college is open from 10 am to 5.30 pm and the library is open from 10 am to 6 pm.

The college has qualified teaching faculty and support staff to meet the program requirements. Staff is recruited according to NCTE, UGC as well as Government of Karnataka norms. The salary structure of the teaching staff is according to the State Government scale. Total number of teaching posts sanctioned is 9 (including the Principal). This college is not government-aided college. There are 2 part time teachers for Computer Education and Physical Education.

The college provides opportunities for professional development of the staff by deputing them to various seminars, workshops, and conferences as well as by organizing workshops at the college. Most of these academic activities are at district or University level. The staff may also be deputed for State as well as National level participation.

The library is housed in a hall with 1000 sq. ft. carpet area. It generally works for 8 hrs a day and during examination 10 hrs a day. The library has about 9000 books including textbooks. Since the B.Ed. curriculum is reframed during the year 2005-06 many of these books have become obsolete and need replacement. It subscribes to 8 journals and 5 magazines. A qualified Librarian looks after the library. The library is using MS excel to prepare a catalogue of all the books. This work is only at the initial stage. The library provides reprographic facility to the students and staff.

A Library Committee comprising of Principal, Librarian, 3 staff members (on rotation) and a student representative meets every 2 months and decide about supplementation and addition of library resources. Students have the facility of borrowing and retaining 3 books for a fortnight. The college also has a book bank facility under which each student gets 4 books for one semester. Most of the students take advantage of the same. Library staff helps physically challenged students by providing more number of books to them. This year there are two physically challenged students.

The college spends about Rs. 25000/- on the library. Books are added every year to the library. During the last 3 years an amount of Rs. 27136/-, 26013/- and 23472/- respectively was spent on books.

Criterion V: Student support and Progression
The student support and progression of any institution depends upon the strength of system efficiency developed by the institution. Mentor system is a prominent component of the strategic plan of the college. Group of 12 to 13 students are assigned to one mentor for the purpose of preparing and conducting microteaching, teaching practice at schools and for tutorials. Orientation classes are conducted at the beginning of the course to prepare students for the teacher training programme and aptitude/attitude test toward teaching profession and content knowledge test are also conducted. Remedial classes are conducted for slow learners and higher targets are set for advanced learners.

Almost all the student teachers who got admission to B.Ed., course during the last three years appeared at the examination. The drop out rate of B.Ed. course is less than 3%. The college also subscribed few magazines, journals and Daily News papers. The college conducts various competitions and mock interview in order to help to face the job interviews later. During last three years 10 students have passed competitive exams for high school teachers recruitment and during 2005-06 most PCM students have passed CET examination for high school teachers recruitment and on an average 12% of students go for further studies in the same field.

The institution provides guidance and counseling facility to students in informal manner. Whenever students encounter a problem, they approach their mentor for counseling. The students both present and past expressed their appreciation for the cooperation, care and warmth they receive from their teachers. This is strength of this college. Sufficient and good infrastructure facilities are provided. Separate cabin for each lecturer enabling them to provide individualized guidance to the student teachers. There is a Placement Cell, which gives information about the vacancies and recommends them to the requested institutions.

Students have a Student Union. Its major activities include conduct of talent search through weekly cultural programs, celebration of important days, book talk (book reviews) etc. The college publishes its magazines once in two years.

The institution has an Alumni Association. They help the institution by giving demonstration lessons, help in observation of lessons. Some of the Alumni are placed in good position.

Criterion VI: Organization and Management
For effective functioning to achieve the goals/objectives the institution has a system and mechanism of organization and management. The Board of management and the Local Governing Body, elected by the K.L.E. Society Belgaum looks after the management of the institution. Principal is the executive head of the institution. Local Governing Body supervises over all improvement of the institution and appointment of staff.

To maintain the qualitative education, the institution regularly evaluates the achievement of the goals and objectives of the institution, overall result of the college, analysis of feedback from student teachers and from practice teaching schools. The institution collaborates with other departments and practice teaching school personnel.

To ensure the quality of academic programmes, the institution provides infrastructure facilities, and appoints qualified and competent teachers and gives them opportunities to attend various seminars, workshops, and refresher's courses to update their knowledge.

The college involving all the staff members prepares calendar of events to chalk out the programme of the year. Teaching staff is recruited based on the rules stipulated by the NCTE and the state government. Committees are formed to carryout different activities in the college. The administration of the college is decentralized from top to bottom.

The Unit cost of B.Ed. program is Rs. 5592/- excluding salary component and Rs. 21626/- including salary component.

The institution has adopted both internal and external audit mechanisms and process for internal quality checks. There is grievance redressal cell in the college. The accounts are computerized and Tally software was installed. Non-teaching staffs are given training in M.S.office automation computer training and in Tally 9.1 software training in computer.

Assessment of faculty performance is done by supervising the classes of the teacher educators, verifying the performance of the student teachers in their examinations and tests, through teachers' self-appraisal and feedback from the students. The welfare measures for the staff are G.S.L.I, medical facility, yearly increment and provident fund.

Section III: Overall Analysis and Recommendations
The college is managed by the Karnataka Lingayat Education Society, which was established in the year 1916 by a socially oriented group of teachers. As such it has a social service on top of its agenda. The college is situated in a ground plus three-story building sharing it with three other institutions. It provides appropriate physical as well as instructional infrastructure to the students and faculty, though some aspects need enhancement.

The college has participated significantly in the process of revision of B.Ed. Curriculum of Karnatak University, Dharwad to which it is affiliated. The B.Ed. curriculum is now semesterised.

It has adequate teaching and support staff. Library is well maintained, ICT is introduced and professional development of faculty is looked after. However, the college has before it many challenges of developing itself into a path sitting institution in various areas such as research, development, linkages, as well as academic transactions.

Keeping in view the performance and strengths of the College, the peer team makes the following recommendations towards the future developed of the college.

Infrastructural Facilities
The College is sharing a 3-story building with three other colleges. Such an environment is not so conducive to learning. Hence, the College should have its own independent building.

It is also required to develop method rooms and Science labs. Though laboratories are set up, we recommend that adequate space is earmarked for each of the science, i.e., biological sciences and physical sciences, be made and the aids in both these subject areas be kept in a systematic manner, like cataloging and organizing their upkeep.

Curricular Planning
Academic planning is the central activity of the teacher-training institute as there are many curricular and co-curricular activities, which need to fit into a 9-10 month time frame.

Preparations of Academic Calendar and sharing of responsibilities with the staff may be strengthened with detailed planning and development of teaching resources for each Paper. Detailing of any paper (course) helps in monitoring and tracking the progress both by the administrators and the management. The detailed planning also benefits students, which may include detailed outline, evaluation procedures, resources as well as assignments.

The college may motivate the faculty to take up Major or Minor Research Projects with a grant from UGC. The research projects related to the objectives of teacher education and institutional practices may be taken up. The students also should be encouraged to take up action research projects, which could then be published by the college. This would enhance quality of teacher education. Workshops on 'Action Research' may be conducted for the students and 'New Trends in Research Methodology' for the staff which would help in capacity building.

Introduction of Post Graduate Programmes
The Peer team thought of suggesting introducing M.Ed. programme. It is learnt that the college has already applied to Karnataka University for the same.

Linkages with National, International Organizations
The college has developed linkages mostly with the Karnataka University and some other affiliated colleges of this University. Now the institute must go beyond and develop National (and after some years International) linkages. This would help to update the faculty about the new trends in the field of teacher education. Linkages with National level institutes such as NCERT, CIET, NIOS, NCTE etc. would help the faculty to keep in touch with the latest trend in the field.

Faculty Development
The college could identify Faculty Development needs and career progression of staff. It may also allocate a separate budget for staff development. The college may depute the staff members for various seminars/workshops held at State and National level. The college may also organize national level seminars, workshops through grants from funding agencies. A five-year planning for faculty development program would help in capacity building of staff in phased manner.

The library is a place where student teachers can develop not only their reading habits, acquire knowledge on various aspects of their professions but also develop their expressive skills. Hence, it needs to be spacious and be provided with latest books, journals and reference in greater number. A good amout of funds also need to be allocated and utilized regularly on an annual basis.

In these days of world wide web facility and transmission of knowledge and also need for the student teachers to have full information about the college, the college is suggested to immediately start its own website and also make use of it to provide latest additions of the activities and facilities being provided in the college.

The Peer Team appreciates the support and cooperation extended by the College during the visit.
