SECTION - 2
Criterion wise Analysis
Criterion - I: Curriculum Design and Planning
As the college enjoys autonomous status ,the staff has full academic freedom and they are the members of board of studies and academic council. They update the curriculum as per the need and demand. Recently they introduced environmental education as one of the electives. The syllabi for different subjects were revised as per NCTE and RCI norms which consists of units and subunits. The evaluation procedure also takes care of concentrating on all the unitized subject matters.
The admission is made for the total marks obtained by the candidates for a maximum of 134. The computation of total marks includes as Under-graduate degree100 marks State level entrance test(100marksReduced to 25) weightage for higher qualifications (PG-4marks;M.Phil-5marks;Ph.D-6 marks), and weightage for co-curricular activities(3 marks). After preparation of merit list the admissions are made on the basis of community wise reservation as prescribed by the Government of Tamilnadu.
On the first day of the commencement of the course students are exposed to the overall framework of the B.Ed programme. Students performance is evaluated by conducting unit tests in theory and by continuously evaluating students practical work. Talented and hard working students are encouraged by the faculty to take up innovative practices and creative activities. Remedial instruction is orginsed in the areas in which a particular student is found disadvantaged. When it is observed that the students are weak in communication skills particularly in English Language , the course for improving the communication skills is organized. The college works for a total of 210 days, out of which, 200 days are devoted to teaching and practice teaching besides ten days for examination related activities. The college has made adequate provision for assessessing students knowledge and skill for the B.Ed programme after admission. It is worth mentioning that the institution has made provision for educationally disadvantaged students through bridge/remedial courses. Special attention for low achievers as well as advanced learners promotes balanced academic growth among the student teachers.
The college is also offering 1. Diploma in computer programming and Educational Application 2. Diploma in Library and Information System 3. Diploma in Educational Psychology and Child Education 4. Certificate Course in Yoga 5. Certificate course in Spoken English apart from the regular B.Ed and M.Ed courses. There is provision for offering part time M.Phil and Ph.D courses of Bharathiar University at Sri Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya College of Education since 1966 and 1977 respectively.
It is appreciable that the institution has made provision for the faculty to enhance their potential through the preparation of course outlines and updating the curriculum for efficient classroom transaction. The college has made adequate provision for assessing students knowledge and skill for the B.Ed programme after admission. The onâ€“going / continuous evaluation system makes the students put in their best of efforts, and allows them to improve their performance from one examination to another.
The college has adequate number of practice teaching schools under its jurisdiction for carrying out teaching practice. Microteaching is being organized to strengthen the teaching skills of the students. The unique feature of the institution is that all the students of the college study â€˜Development of Moral and Social valuesâ€™ in Semester II as a core paper.
For providing remedial courses to the educationally disadvantaged students good measures are taken by the college. Advanced learners are guided to take difficult tasks and through them, the educationally disadvantaged students are helped and motivated to utilize their abilities in the positive direction. The initiatives undertaken by the faculty for revising the syllabus of the different courses of the autonomous college speaks about the academic leadership and dynamism of the teachers of the college. The relationship between the school, college and community networking is quite healthy and the different activities undertaken by the college in collaboration with the external agencies reflects on the philosophy and commitment of the college to a balanced and mutually supportive social environment.
Since the college has good physical infrastructure and academic expertise, motivating teachers for designing modular curriculum for pre-service and in-service programme would boost the overall functioning of the college. The teacher preparation programme, which is imparted by adopting multi-disciplinary / interdisciplinary strategies, learner-centred pedagogy and self-learning through seminars, workshops, debates, group discussion, project work, SUPW activities, extension activities and library work would definitely help student teachers to enhance their skills, develop positive attitude and benefit the students and the society at large.
During the discussions it was revealed that one of the important goals of the College is to make students familiar with the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna and Swamy Vivekananda and shaping its students into fully integrated human beings with the harmonious blend of cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills, combining modern scientific temper with ancient spiritual wisdom. The college articulated its goals/vision and mission in clear terms and displayed the same on the walls of the college. The College evolved various mechanisms and techniques for reaching the community and establishing close links with rural masses. The College may adopt a few nearby villages and ask B.Ed. students to work with them. This would help the students to learn from the community and also to acquire basic skills for undertaking social work and also to extend support to the community. However, the College should organize educational tours for exposing students to the multi-cultural realities of India and to imbibe secular values enshrined in the constitution of India.
From the documents and discussions conducted it is clearly evident that the faculty of the College has been continuously encouraging students to use inter-disciplinary approach during their practical work. Inclusive education is included in the general curriculum which exposes to the learning of the exceptional children and the need and scope of inclusive education.
The College is conducting special programmes and certificate courses in social and communication skills and also in personality development for the B.Ed. students, it should also extend the same for the people who are outside the College.

The institute is offering rigorous training in micro teaching skills.
The demonstration classes are extended by the faculty. There is an adequate provision for observation of demonstration lessons given by teacher educators and experienced teachers. An intensive practice teaching programmes conducted through different co-operative high schools is quite efficient and effective.

Attempts are made by the institution to organize programmes for faculty development. Efforts are being made for improving the linkages with the local, national and international agencies with the institution for vibrant teaching and research. The attempts made by the institution to foster moral, spiritual and social values through the celebration of important festivals, events and other co-curricular activities will go a long way in the improvement of curricular transaction.

The efforts made by the institution to promote general transferable skills among students through learning to learn, communication skills, use of information technology, learning to work together, use of teacher-centered pedagogy and inclusive education is quite encouraging.

The college has developed robust mechanism for carrying out the evaluation work periodically. The SRMVCE has undertaken responsibility for conducting UGC sponsored refresher courses and a number of workshops for the benefit of teachers and teacher educators of the college and the neighbor-hood.
Students are also provided training in the acquisition of observation skills, planning units and lessons, and also in acquiring documentation skills. Besides this, students are involved in other simulated teaching techniques and in the preparation of teaching aids. The College could establish very close links with practicing schools. As part of the internship, students are also given training in how to conduct school assembly, maintain school registers, conduct case studies and participate in co-operative learning.
With regard to professional development, teachers are seriously involved in organising seminars and participating in conferences. The college motivates the teachers in taking active part in the professional development activities. As far as faculty appraisal is concerned, the institution has given serious thought to this. Techniques to evaluate teachers by students are followed. Self-appraisal of teachers is being followed.
One of the important best practices of the College is students involvement in addressing the problems of slow learners in schools. For this purpose the college conducts tutoring programmes in a methodical way by involving all the B.Ed students in different phases..
Criterion - III: Research, Development and Extension
By and large, all the faculty members of this College are well qualified with double postgraduate degrees and also M.Phil in Education. Out of the 17 faculty, 9 have completed their Ph.D and 3 of them are with M.Phil degrees, which indicates the strength of the institution to pursue research programmes in the right direction. Most of the teachers are approved guides for the doctoral studies of the Bharathiar University and other Universities in the State of Tamilnadu. The college offers part-time Ph.D and M.Phil programmes in education affiliated to Bharathiyar University. The college has subscribed for 40 research journals.

Five Ph.D degrees and 5 M.Phil degrees have been awarded during the last 5 years. The institution has undertaken few on-going research projects. There is a Department of Extension Unit in the college, which is looked after by a co-ordinator exclusively for organizing in-service programmes. It is highly encouraging that the college is making a concerted effort in undertaking various extension activities like in-service teacher training programmes, action research, consultancy service, etc.
The encouragement showered on teachers and students to participate in extension activities through community service and other socially acceptable programmes are commendable and would definitely open new vistas for the institutions advancement and growth. It is worth mentioning that the principal along with other faculties provides consultancy services and share their research experience with neighboring educational institutions. The institution has taken initiatives to develop self-instructional materials, print materials and non-print materials.
The College is seriously involved in designing and implementing community and extension activities. Since there are no significant out-reach activities in the college, it is better to adopt a few villages that are in the vicinity of the College and involve students in learning from the community. The faculty members should involve in the development of programmed learning and digital study material. This will be very much useful and significant in the present context. The College should strengthen its extension activities for professional growth of teachers in schools in the area, specifically educational management. Some of the areas of extension may include adult education, AIDs awareness, etc. These activities may be taken up for developing linkages with the community.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
Sri Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya College of Education is purely a residential college conceived under guru kula model adopted suitably to modern conditions. Apart from the college building, the sprawling campus accommodates a hostel (for about 130 students) a multipurpose auditorium and a play ground. The institution functions in its own building, The efforts on the part of the management and the college in terms of availing opportunity for providing a conducive atmosphere and good infrastructure to carryout the curricular and co-curricular activities has given the functionaries a boost in furtherance of teacher education. .
