It saw all the facilities in the College available for the B.Ed. course. The Team verified the facts with the help of office documents. Based on this the team presents the following report-

Section- II
Criterion I- Curriculum Design and Planning
The Government has been constantly changing admission procedures for the admission of B.Ed. students during the past five years. Up to 2001-02 admission to the B.Ed. Colleges in the State were made centrally and PSM Jabalpur used to send a list of candidates allotted to the Colleges. But the Board of Professional Examinations started conducting the centralized entrance examination from the academic year 2002-03 and permitted the individual colleges to make admissions based on the guidelines given by the Department of Higher education, Govt. of Madhya Pradesh. From the academic year 2005-06 onwards, the centralized system of admissions is going to be followed, it is learnt. As per rules 50% of the seats are allocated for general category, 14% for OBC, 16% for STs and 20% to SCs.

The College has an average of 113 instructional days plus 40 days for practice teaching as 15 days for microteaching lessons.

The College is considered as a good College in the city and students of above average level get admission in the college.

The current syllabus has four compulsory papers of 100 marks each, two methods papers carrying each a 100 and an elective of 100 marks. In addition, there are 300 marks for field experiences and teaching practice and another 100 marks for co-curricular, physical & health education.

The College has no role to play in the design of new courses and Barkatullah University takes all the decisions related to design and implementation of new curricula.

The College has the broad goal of 'Social Service' and no specific mission or goal statements have been stated.

The College conducts a few tests but they do not essentially serve as effective feedback system for the students; nor do they lead to any remedial instruction.

The relation of the College with both the participating schools and the community is limited. As stated by the HOD, the College participates in a few programmes conducted by the participating schools and undertakes a few visits to the slums etc. to educate the people there on topics like health and sanitations.

Criterion-II - Curriculum Transaction & Evaluation
The Education Department in the Ravindra College follows the syllabus developed by the Barkatullah University, Bhopal. There are three compulsory papers and 6-7 optional papers in special field. All the students have been offered only one subject namely the Environment Education though there was demand for other optional subject. For selecting two subjects as teaching methods the subjects are divided into four groups. The students have to select two teaching methods from two groups related to his/her faculty.

Mainly lecture method is employed for transaction of the syllabus , rarely discussion method is made use of.
The evaluation system is designed by the University and it is followed by the Department. The students are given orientation in the beginning of the academic year regarding the pattern of evaluation. The total evaluation consists of external and internal assessment which pertains to theory and practical work. For evaluation of practical work 400 marks (200 internal + 200 external) are reserved while for external evaluation (theory) 700 marks are allotted.

As informed by the HOD the microteaching session is conducted for about fifteen days and during this period five skills are covered, with two cycles of teach-reteach. The microteaching timetable could not be made available. The internship is of forty days during which the students complete their practice teaching comprising of twenty lessons per teaching method. In the selected schools 13 -14 students are allotted where they observe forty lessons of the peers. Guidance for practice teaching is given by the teachers of the Department one hr. before the lesson as stated by the students. The lessons are observed by the teachers of the Department. Feedback is given to the students regarding their lessons for improvement.

Some extension activities need to be organized for and to be conducted by the students instead of just restricting to class room activity. Under Work Experience gardening and horticulture is taught and performed by a few students.

Criterion III - Research and Extension
The faculty must take up research projects individually or jointly and explore the possibility of getting research grant from agencies like UGC, ERIC(NCERT), NCTE and ICSSR. The research activity on the part of faculty enhances the quality of teaching in professional programmes.

Effort should also be made at least now to undertake innovative projects to improve the instructional work of B.Ed programmes. The faculty members need to be encouraged in this regard.

The extension work in a college of education is a necessary activity. The B.Ed faculty must undertake extension work to improve the professional competence of teachers, preferably those in the participating schools. The faculty of B.Ed department needs to initiate effort in this direction.

There is a need to develop Teaching Learning Material (TLM) by the B.Ed department to help students to understand difficult topics of the syllabus. Some useful TLM for school teachers should also be developed by the faculty members.

It is clear that the B.Ed department has to take initiative at the earliest to undertake research, extension and development activities. It would help the faculty to grow professionally reducing at the same time the isolation between the college and the schools in the neighborhood.

Criterion IV- Infrastructure and Resources
The Ravindra College is a multi Faculty College comprising of Arts, Commerce, Law & Education faculties. Hence most of the facilities are shared on mutual basis. It has a compact campus with small play ground. The building is well maintained. There are 16 classrooms and one big hall in the College Building which are utilized for running the nine courses under five faculties. There is a need to have a separate exclusive wing for running the B.Ed. course. It has a central library with total no. of 17000 books out of which about 3000 books are for B. Ed.

During this academic year they have purchased eleven computes which are placed in a class room and a Computer Engineer is appointed to look after the Computer lab and teach to the BCA students. The B.Ed. students informally contact the instructor to use the computers voluntarily whenever they need. Computer literacy is not the integral part of the syllabus. The Department has to equip the ET and Psychology laboratories properly and adequately.

The library is open normally from 10 am to 5 pm every day and 8 am to 5 pm whenever needed. The B.Ed. students are issued two books at a time for fifteen days. The library has an adjacent small room as the reading room.

Out of seven teachers three are temporary and the one senior in salary is acting as the Head of the Department. It is advised that the faculty members take more interest in the academic matters.

The toilet facilities are common for the staff and the students and no separate facility available for the Principal. The drinking water facility is available and a water cooler to that purpose is available.

The Gym facility is available in the College but the B.Ed. students are not able to avail it.

It was observed that the B.Ed. course is run with limited resources while it was communicated by the Management that there was no paucity of funds.

Criterion V - Student support and progression
The results of B.Ed. course were almost cent percent during the last three years . During 2003-04 all the candidates passed in I Class. But during 2004-05 , though all the candidates passed the examination, only five candidates obtained I class. This is attributed to a change in the evaluation programme.

The management of the College claims that some of its alumni are well placed and are preferred in employment, though it has no formal records to support the claim. There is no alumni association and there is no formal feedback mechanism in vogue; nor any financial help is offered from the College to the students .

The staff members, except for occasional guidance to the students when they approach them , do not have a formal mechanism for providing guidance, academic counseling and consultancy services. The College does not offer any placement services. Also, it does not have records of candidates who had obtained employment.

The College, when it is asked to make admissions following certain procedures, takes care to see that the applicants are well aware of the rules of the admission. The details are published in newspapers and applications are invited for admission. The admission committee is appointed by the management where the Principal is not a member.

Table tennis equipment and a Gym are available for use by the students.

Though the College has no formal cultural or literary clubs, the staff members conduct debates, essay writing competitions and cultural activities before the celebration of the College Day .

Criterion VI - Organisation and Management
The college which has B.Ed as one of the programmes has an internal coordinating mechanism . The Chairman of the society has his office in the college premises . Day to day management is carried out by the Principal in coordination with the management. There were no external agencies appointed during the last three years to improve the organization and management of the College. There is no inbuilt mechanism to check work efficiency of non-teaching staff. Master plan showing the schedule of various academic activities, workload of the teachers etc., is not prepared.

All decisions of general body have been approved during the last two years. The current tuition fee structure of B.Ed is Rs.25000/- per year. There has been no deficit budget during the last two years. There exists a mechanism of internal audit. There are staff welfare programmes viz provision of house building and vehicle advance .

There is a need to establish the Grievance Redressal Cell in the college. However, the grievances of the employees are dealt with informally. There is a need to introduce computerization in management and organization of the college for its efficient functioning.

There is also a need to establish linkages by the college with national agencies for training and research activities. Some self financing courses eg. D.Ed, BCA , B.COM , M.Com have been introduced to strengthen its resources . The B.Ed programme should introduce activities to impart value based education , inculcate civic sense through cocurricular activities in addition to cultural programme being conducted currently. Activities like NCC, games , etc. are being organized towards the allround development of the personality of the students. However, effort should be made to bring in 'Community Orientation' in its activities.
