Media coverage of NKT NATIONAL COLLEGE OF EDUCATION FOR WOMEN, Chennai (Madras) Tamil Nadu, Tamil Nadu


Section 1: Preface
N.K. Thirumalachariar National College of Education, Chennai, is one of the quality teacher education institutions of Tamil Nadu, of over 35 years' standing in the field. It has an impressive and creditable track record of work and has been conferred autonomous status as early as in 1988. The College, ever since its inception in 1966, has steadily progressed a small teacher training institution running the B.T. Degree of the University of Madras with a modest intake of 80 women students, to a comprehensive college of teacher education for women catering to the educational needs of 230 B.Ed. students, 20 M.Ed. students, 10 M.Phil students, and 11 Ph.D. students. The staff strength is 29 (11 Permanent and 18 Temporary Teachers), out of whom 8 have Ph.D. qualification. The College is located in 3.06 acres of land in the city, receiving grant-in-aid from the state government. The institution currently has 10 departments. It has superior infrastructural facilities including a well-equipped Computer Centre, Central Library, Science Laboratories and other support service facilities needed for a modern College of Teacher Education. The success rate is very high (close to 100%) while the drop-out rate is very low.

The institution is carefully designed building complex with all basic amenities. It has established close linkages with national and international bodies like the NCERT, NCTE , UGC , AIAER; it is heartening to note that it established academic contacts with the University of Stockholm, Sweden, which it uses to update its performance level.

The running of the institution is in the hands of a council of stalwarts in the field of education. The institution, started by a committed pioneer and philanthropist like Sri.N.K. Thirumalachariar, had the privilege of direct interaction with some of the great cultural leaders of the yester years like Dr. RadhaKrishnan, Shri. V.V. Giri, Shri R.Venkatraman, Dr. A.L. Mudaliar and Shri. C.R.Pattibi Raman. Till date, it has turned out over 4,714 B.Ed's . 169 M.Ed's, 54 M.Phil's and 6 Ph.D's. The College offers certain unusual optionals like Computer Education, Mass Communication, Elements of Economics, Education for the Visually handicapped etc.,

There is adequate evidence to show that the College conducts of high-level academic work and co-curricular activities. The institution has set lofty objectives for itself, most of which it has been able to achieve through careful and calculated operation of the system at its disposal. The college management also evinces deep interest in upgrading the quality of its educational delivery system. All the above evidences clearly point to the fact that the College could be treated as one of the top institutions of teacher education in the country, and is poised to make a mark in the area of teacher education in this country.

The College volunteered for its accreditation and submitted a Self-Study Report to NAAC. In response to this request, the NAAC constituted a peer team consisting of Prof. A.Sukumaran Nair, Formerly Vice-Chancellor of Mahathma Gandhi University, Kottayam as Chairman and Prof. D.S. Shivananda, Retired Professor of Education, Bangalore University, Bangalore, as member to validate the Self-Study Report. Dr.M.S. Shyamasundar, Assistant Adviser, NAAC, ably co-ordinated the visit of the peer-team.

The peer team visited the college on 1st and 2nd of August 2001. It examined in detail the performance of the institution, its infrastructure, curricular and co-curricular programmes, and other relevant aspects of its functioning. The peer team also held discussions with the members of the faculty, the present students, alumni, parents and non-teaching staff in addition to the Principal and members of the Managing Council, to gain a deeper perspective of the functioning of the College. The following report is the is based on the academic interaction worked out by the Peer Team.

Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
The College as an affiliated Autonomous College of the University of Madras follows broadly the curricular framework prescribed by the University, but also has some flexibility in its operation as an Autonomous College under the University.

The College offers four degree programmes under affiliation to the University of Madras - B.Ed. (all important optionals), M.Ed. (all important specializations), M.Phil. and Ph.D. programmes. There is clear evidence of the high quality of educational operations; all the progammes offered by the College maintain high standards. There is reasonable flexibility (within the framework set by the requirements prescribed by the University for Autonomous Colleges) in respect of the timeframe for course operations, elective options and non-core options. The College mission and goals are reflected in the operations adopted for course delivery. The College, although basically an institution meant for teacher preparation, it also gives adequate emphasis to research and extension work. The stress given in the working of extension services (eg. service given to disadvantaged children, socially under-privileged groups etc.,), provision given for teaching of the visually handicapped, special training given for SUPW, vocational training and training in population education, all cater to the achievement of higher objectives set by the institution developing world-class teachers. The utility of the various research projects undertaken by the institution, various social service schemes, the special core subjects included etc., all point to the existence of a highly satisfactory system of curricular operations. The level of operations is much higher than what you get in routine institutions.

Criterion II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
The College broadly follows the teaching- learning models and evaluation procedures adopted by affiliated teacher education colleges under the University of Madras, with appropriate modifications and innovative modalities permissible under the affiliating framework.

The College makes provision for ensuring that all the deeper outcomes expected of teachers, using a wide variety of instructional approaches - lectures, seminars, workshops, projects, audio-video supported teaching techniques etc., and closely supervised practice teaching for different levels and subject areas.

The institution has all the important equipments required for effective instruction in teacher education , including the hardware and software supports for practicing modern educational technology. The number of working days, workloads assigned to teachers, full-time and part-time staff available, etc., all show that proper teaching-learning strategies are in use.

The College has developed adequate systems for the assessment of students' knowledge and skills for the different programmes offered by the College. The College has provision for continuous comprehensive evaluation to decide whether all the deep-level objectives have been attained at appropriate points of time. Supervision and assessment of practical work is done using defensible methods. The manner of apportioning marks for different areas of academic work are well laid out. Students are given a clear picture ahead of what kinds of methods are intended to be used.

Methods used for meeting the service needs and requirements of teachers, modalities used for creation of teaching positions etc. are sound. The institution enjoys considerable freedom in making temporary or adhoc appointments whenever needed. The number of teaching positions is adequate for undertaking the instructional activities intended. The College follows a fool-proof system for evaluating the work of teachers, systems for staff appraisal and institutional evaluation. Faculty members are encouraged to undertake and publish research . The College has made adequate provision for upgrading teacher quality through refresher courses, seminars, conferences etc., and other forms of in-service training. Faculty members are encouraged to attend courses provided in Academic Staff Colleges. The institution has established close linkages with important national and international bodies, both within and out side the country.

The evidence collected gives clear indications of the high quality curricular transactions provided by this College and the scientific system of evaluation adopted by it.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy & Extension
The College has paid adequate attention to all the above three parameters. There is ample evidence to support the conclusion that research is pursued seriously at the M.Ed., M.Phil. and Ph.D. levels, by the staff members.

The College believes in promoting research work by the faculty and has made satisfactory provision for promoting research by encouraging research projects and granting of study leave for teachers who would like to do research. The College makes available research funds to teachers and helps intending researchers by adjusting their work schedule to help them to undertake research projects etc. A considerable number of teachers are engaged in the conduct of research and also in supervising research. Many critical areas have been selected for research. Most of the research studies maintain the standards expected. The number of research scholars is adequate, especially when we take into consideration the fact that the institution is mainly a teaching institution.

There is evidence of consultancy provided by the institution. Many teachers have acquired research qualifications. Extension work is in evidence; teachers are permitted to undertake extension work. Extension activities vary from community development to programmes for the creation of environmental awareness. A wide range of social service schemes is in operation, including the operation of the SUPW scheme.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The institution has developed a very sound infrastructure and adequate learning resources for running a top-level institution of teacher education. The College has adequate building facilities. It has an extensive campus. The College has succeeded in generating the needed funds for creating and maintaining the needed buildings and infrastructure. It also has a well maintained library and Computer Laboratory with internet facilities. There are arrangements for information and resource sharing with other institutions.

The library is computerized and is open even during off hours. It has 9,500 volumes on stock, with a large number of journals. The College owns a wide variety of computer hardware and software.

The campus is properly maintained. A separate committee of faculty members is in charge of campus maintenance. The College pays special attention to all-round development of its students. It has good sports facilities and equipments. The incentives for participants in sports events are satisfactory. Workshop and Instrumentation Centre are both properly designed and operated.

The welfare programmes organized by the College include the operation of a Health Club, Canteen, Guidance and Counselling Centre. Its operates a Placement Service for the benefit of its students. There is provision for grant of loans and scholarships to deserving students. A book bank is in operation for the benefit of poor students. The College has a Grievance Cell which can deal with the grievance of individual students.

Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
The institution has developed reasonably sound and realistic student support services and has also developed proper progression routes for its students.

The College has a brilliant track record of achievements in respect of its old students; many of the old students are currently holding senior administrative positions in the departmental hierarchy or in College. Considerable number of students have come out successful in the national level competitions like UGC-CSIR, NET and GATE examinations etc. The College gets timely feedback from students, which helps it to update the information regarding scholarships and other forms of assistance available to students. The College makes provision for academic and personal counselling etc and provides special support services for overseas students. The College makes provision for a wide variety of recreational services. The data shows clearly that the College is a progressive institution of teacher education which attends to the total development of its students.

Criterion VI: Organisation and Management.
The institution is managed by a body of eminent and public-minded people who are totally dedicated to the promotion of education, especially teacher education. The members of the General Council of the College include academicians of the status of former Vice-Chancellors and senior professionals from different walks of life. There is evidence that the College uses the services of expert committees to recommend improvements in its organization and management. It also has committees for streamlining the work of non-teaching staff, preparing the academic calendar etc. The College has devised sound systems for the professional improvement of its non-teaching staff. The College follows the fee structure fixed by the Government. A sound internal audit system is in place. Provident Fund scheme is in operation.

Section 3: Overall Analysis
The peer team attempted to develop a total picture of the functioning efficiency of the institution on the basis of the data made available to it from the Self Study Report and also using the first-hand data collected by the team and on the basis of its observations and interaction with concerned functionaries and connected individuals.

The Peer Team would like to place on record the following commendable features in the operation of the N.K.T. National College of Education for Women:

The ability of the institution to demonstrate the existence of a progressive system of teacher education.

Considerable autonomy enjoyed by the college in teacher selection, student selection, and in devising new instructional strategies etc.

The existence of a progressive management team willing to adopt new management strategies and invest for quality teacher education.

Giving adequate importance to quality research and research training.

Special importance given to social service in operating a college of teacher education.
Creation of a large infrastructure for providing quality teacher education.

Developing and putting into practice the concept of a comprehensive model of teacher education, incorporating different levels of teacher education and making provision for practising diverse areas of teacher education, with adequate emphasis given to teaching, research and extension.

Developing a conducive management style where the teachers feel that they are part of the institution.

The staff members have high qualification and professional reputation.

The institution has lot of potential for growth. There are few areas which need improvement. The institution should seek greater autonomy from the University if it has to perform the functions excepted of it.

The Peer Team wishes to make the following suggestions for further improvement of the institution:

Developing a sound system for testing aptitude for teaching, using defensible psychometric techniques and using them for admission of students.

Developing a defensible model for improving the quality of teacher internship (eg. a four-tier phased practice teaching system with microteaching and simulation used during the earlier phases.)

Instituting with the concurrence of the University, new course patterns eg.two- year B.Ed., integrated B.Ed. and M.Ed., integrated M.Ed. and M.Phil. course, etc.
Starting M.Sc. courses in the following service areas of education:

Psycho-educational Services

Compensatory Education

Educational Technology and Media Education

Educational Materials Development

Starting Diploma / Certificate courses in Text Book Preparation and Production, Educational Testing, Educational Management.

Designing a total plan for improving instructional practice in schools based on new educational models.

Identify training needs in schools and develop a support programme for teacher education.

Designing programmes for improving the quality of teacher education.

Designing action research programmes for improving teacher education.

Since the College is encouraging research at M.Ed., M.Phil., and Ph.D., levels it is suggested that the library has to be improved by adding latest books in areas like Educational Research and increasing the number of Journals.

A Master Plan for developing the institution in the next five years has to be prepared and operated within a set time-frame.

The College could develop a school of research which specialises in studying problems relating to different aspects of teacher education and would develop in to Centre for Advanced Study of Teacher Education in the next five years.
