NAAC report of Government College of Education for Women

Section - I: Introduction
Government College of Education for Women, Coimbatore was established in the year 1956 by the Government of Tamil Nadu. There was a felt need of compulsory education after independence. In order to cater to this urgent need s, more teachers were to be trained. Government College of Education for Women was started during second five-year plan with this purview to train good and efficient lady teachers. The College started functioning with 75 students and 7 teachers. The institution is affiliated to Bharathiar University. It occupies a pivotal role in the formation of future teachers to Secondary and Higher Secondary schools in and around Coimbatore.

The College was designated as the Center for Teacher Education in 1995 and 1997 onwards it keeps up the Norms and Standards put forward by the NCTE, thereby the Teacher Education Programmes are more relevant and effective. The College offered M. Ed. Programme as a Programme in the evening college mode since 1973. This course was started with a view to help in-service teachers to pursue their studies and to keep them abreast with the developments in Education. It seems that the M.Ed. Programme was terminated as directed by NCTE since it has not framed norms and regulations for M.Ed. evening course. The College started offering research programmes leading to the Degree of M. Phil and Ph. D., since 1993 on part-time basis. The present strength of the college is 120 students for B.Ed. , 8 students for M. Phil. and 3 students for Ph. D., with a total of 131. Students are selected for the B. Ed. course through entrance test and academic record, and two optional systems is followed in the institution at par with the mode of teacher education in T.N. Students for M. Phil and Ph. D. are selected by interview and on the basis of academic record. Though the college is a women s college it is open for male students for Research Degrees. Under the faculty of education, there are 8 departments, namely, Education, Tamil, English, Mathematics, Physical Science, Biological Science, History and Geography.

Teachers are recruited through Teachers Recruitment Board and non-teaching staff through Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission. It is worth noting that almost all the teachers have Research Degrees, Ph. D. or M. Phil. As per the stipulation of NCTE, a teacher for Arts and Crafts is appointed on permanent basis and there are no part-time teachers.

The objectives of the institution is clearly spelt as to produce dedicated and skilled teachers for Secondary and Higher Secondary schools and to promote Research in the field of Education. The strategies to achieve these objectives are clearly defined giving importance to skill development, developing leadership qualities, creativity, value systems, updated methods of teaching, etc. This is the only Teacher Training College, affiliated to Bharathiar University and hence the faculty occupies a very important status in designing, modifying and implementing new curriculum for Teacher Education in the University.

It is appreciable that the Institution voluntarily came forward for careful introspection by themselves and also by the external agency, the NAAC. The Institution submitted its self-study Report on 13 Feb 2002. In the pursuance of this report NAAC constituted a Peer team consisting of Dr. G.

Section - III: Overall Analysis
Government College of Education for Women, Coimbatore was founded in the year 1956, to prepare trained teachers for secondary and higher secondary schools. The government of Tamil Nadu supported the institution from the very beginning in building up the necessary infra-structural facilities and the institution has grown into a center for Teacher Education in 1995. The college follows strictly the norms and standards of NCTE.

The institution functions with a motto Love, Service, Truth . The teacher loves her students and dedicates herself to their service. Also, the teacher is in constant search for truth leading the young generation to knowledge of truth. The motto is put into practice by the manifold activities of the college.

The college building is old and renovations have been undertaken by the Government from time-to-time. It has built in the infrastructure facilities according to the norms and standards of NCTE. Psychology lab, Audio visual lab, common rooms, music room etc., are built in. It has a spacious library, computer center, auditorium and hostel for the students.

The day-to-day functioning of the college is managed by the Principal. The college has a good academic record regarding curricular aspects, teaching-learning and evaluation, research and extension. The college has sufficient number of practice - teaching schools in the city of Coimbatore. Based on the interaction with the Principal and the rest of the functionaries the peer group could assess the following achievements of the college that are commendable.

The faculty is well qualified and experienced.

That the students are divided into small groups of 10-12 and entrusted to each staff member. He/She takes care of the total development of the group of students entrusted to her.

The college has promoted an atmosphere of healthy relationship among students and between teachers and students.

There prevails a research atmosphere.

The faculty takes up various extension programmes as an integral part of their teaching responsibility and the coaching classes in competitive examinations is commendable.

The institution is supported by the neighboring Secondary Schools as the training ground for the student teachers.

There prevails good relationship with the Alumni.

The discipline and decorum existing in the campus are praiseworthy.

The students hold their teachers with great esteem. The teacher- pupil relationship is cordial.

The discipline and hard work of the students are commendable

The leadership and the administrative abilities of the Principal help the whole system function in good team spirit.

The hostel facilities are sufficient, well maintained and co-operative store run in the hostel is an appreciable achievement.

The students are interested to adopt English as medium of instruction

Teacher Training has been given more importance in the country recently than any other period and it has to be dynamic incorporating the modern developments in Technology and multi-media. Hence efforts have to be taken to sensitise and use multimedia in the instruction and teaching of the trainees.

The College is the only affiliated college in Bharathiyar University and can initiate innovations easily in curriculum, method of instruction and evaluation.

As a college of Teacher Education the institution should have stabilized system of in-service programmes for Secondary and Higher secondary school teachers, especially in educational technology, multi-media, content enrichment, instructional strategies and evaluation. This has to be a significant task of
Government College of Teacher Education for women, Coimbatore.

The peer group has noted that the parents of the students or the general public are not in any way associated with the development and support of the institution.

The establishment of PTA could be envisaged to foster good relationship and development of students and the institution.

The facilities in the library have to be modified, with computer and reprographic amenities and easy access of books.

More new books, relevant journals, C.D. ROMS, etc., are to be procured.

The access to the Computer Center is minimal and there is practically no programmes given to students. They should be encouraged to plan few
Computer assisted packages for actual class room teaching.

More computers might be procured by contribution from other agencies instead of depending only on Government funding.

The present extension programmes can be modified by seeking involvement of the local public and choosing relevant programmes of their interest.

Research activities are under taken by only three Departments, Geography, Education and Mathematics. This has to be extended to other Departments as well based on teaching, learning and evaluation.

The college has a rich history of 45 years with eminent educationists serving the institution in different capacities. Presently reputed teachers are serving each department and many dedicated leaders and teachers have emerged from this institution. This institution should also grow into autonomous status, thereby it can serve the Teacher Education scenario of the state more authentically.

The college can initiate and move the Govt. to start certificate or diploma courses in the field of Teacher Education such as Montessori, Pre-primary, Primary education on self-financing basis, as it is the changing policy of several governments.

Campus can be kept clean by the co-operative effort of teachers and students, inculcating great values like co-operation, dignity of labour, etc.

The infra-structure could be extended to other agencies, and to programmes of social concern so that the optimal use of infra-structure is ensured.
Steps need to be initiated to make the library computerized.

Computer aided learning packages in various subjects should be developed and used, since the college situates in a rewarding township where all types of new technologies are practicable.

The Alumnae Association is to be strengthened.
There should be self-appraisal report of each faculty member and every year it has to be updated.

English remedial classes could be arranged for students since English has become an international language and very much useful for references.
Regular computer classes could be arranged for students. Also the peer team feel the necessity of computer training to the staff members.

Study tours/Field trips are very helpful in developing qualities and values such as co-operation, tolerance, national integration, etc. This aspect also should be incorporated into the co-curricular programmes.

M.Phil., & Ph.D. students could be encouraged to appear for NET, SLET examinations.

The college calendar might be published in English language in order that non
Tamil pupil can also get information about the college.

The college should have a demonstration school attached and it is suggested that one of the nearest corporation school be adopted for the purpose.

Medium of instruction could be in English in a college of this type and students can be given options to write their examination in Tamil or English.

The college may publish a news letter wherein you can indicate the achievements, special programmes etc.,

This college of education should become the centre for offering leadership for all types of academic endeavors of educational institutions in this township.
