NAAC report of Shams-Ul-Uloom College of EducationSECTION 1: INTRODUCTION
Shams-Ul-Uloom College of Education at Markapur was established by Islamic Educational and Cultural Society during the early part of 2003 for the year 2002-2003 after getting recognition by the Southern Regional Committee of National Council for Teacher Education vide FAP/New/BEd197/SRO/NCTE/2002-03/0148 dated 28-02-03 and also with the NOC from the state government of Andhra Pradesh. The college is affiliated to Acharya Nagarjuna University. The college has twin objectives of developing the educationally and economically backward area of Markapur and also to serve the Muslim religious minority group to take care of their educational, social and economic needs. Of course as an educational institution the college may immediately serve the cause of education only.
The college is located in a campus of nearly 7.20 acres of land on which a three storied building with a floor area of 23,000 sq is constructed. The building has an Administrative Block with4 rooms for office, staff, principal and chairman of the management. It has a Library hall with reading room facilities. Separate laboratories for Computer, ET, Psychology, Physical Science, Biological Science and Work Experience are provided by the college. The college adequate number of class rooms, common hall seminar hall along with adequate number of toilets for both men and women. More physical space is provided by the management with the idea of establishing more number of courses of study. The college has created sufficient play ground keeping the future developments in view. An open air theatre that can accommodate 500 persons is available for conducting cultural activities.
The college has 10 permanent teaching staff including the staff for computer and physical education with two persons having PhD degree and two persons having MPhil degree qualifications. There are 02 technical and 03 administrative staff. The intake for the BEd course is 100 and the total number of teaching days is 180 and the unit cost of the course is Rs 12000/ per student per year which is quite reasonable.
The college volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council and submitted the Self- study Report to the council for evaluation during 2006.The NAAC constituted the following Peer Team for the assessment of the college:
Professor P.Venkataramaiah, Chairperson
Kuvempu University and

Mysore, Karnataka 570 009.
Dr.R.Karpaga Kumarvel, Member

Department of Educational Technology
Professor C.Abdusalam, Member
Jamia Nadwia Training College
The Peer Team visited the college on 16th,17th and 18th of Nov 2006. The team carefully studied and analyzed the Self-study Report submitted by the college and interacted with the management, principal, teaching and non-teaching staff, students, parents and alumni including the teachers and the Head Masters of the teaching practicing schools. The peer team went through the relevant documents, visited the departments and the facilities and interacted with the various constituents of the institution. Based on the critical analysis and six criteria identified by the NAAC, the Peer Team assessed the college in terms of its strengths and areas of concern. The assessment report of the institution under various criteria, the good features as well as the issues of concern that need the attention of the college and management are as follows:
SECTION 2: CRITERION-WISE ANALYSIS
CRITERION I: CURRICULAR DESIGN AND PLANNING
The college has no freedom to design its own curriculum for the course since it is affiliated to Acharya Nagarjuna University whose Board of Studies in Education and the Academic Council decide the entire curriculum. The institution has to adopt the curriculum approved by the University bodies.. The management has obtained minority status to the college since 2003-04 from which time the students admitted are all Muslims. The students are admitted on the basis of Ed-CET entrance test conducted by the State government through APSCHE.The management can admit 85% of the seats from among the Muslim candidates qualified through ED-CET and any vacancies in this group due to non availability of qualified Muslim candidates, the ED-CET convener will fill up those vacancies. The management has the freedom to fill up the remaining 15% of the seats.
The structure of the course offered by the college consists of 05 general papers viz (1) Foundations of Education (2) Psychological Foundations of Education (3) Educational Technology and Computer Education (4) School Management and Systems Education (5) Personal Development and Communicative English and Two papers on Methods of Teaching. The college offers seven options for the two methodologies offered. The total number of working days as claimed by the college is 180 while the number of teaching days is 150 with 30 days for the practice teaching. The NCTE regulations give 150 teaching days as the minimum requirement and the colleges of Education should always work with more number of working days than prescribed by the NCTE for better training of the student teachers. The college has not prepared its own detailed academic calendar giving the activities on daily basis. The mapping of academic activities on weekly basis is prepared. The college conducts tests only twice in the 9th and 20th weeks. Inclusive education is covered in the paper on Psychological Foundations of Education.
The college has 26 days of pre-practice and 30 days of practice teaching which appears to be limited for the training of the teacher trainees that too with 20+20 practice teaching lessons for two school subjects. The college has not prepared a detailed calendar of its academic activities to be followed through out the year. There is no specific method adopted by the college to identify the disadvantaged and the advanced learners.
The college has all the lab facilities but adoption of the ET laboratory facilities effectively in the micro teaching component of the BEd course appears to be not there. It is essential to Video record the performance of the trainee and show the same to the candidate to observe the language used, body language, skills used and organization of the lesson plan. This would provide an opportunity to the student teacher for self evaluation and also for self correction in addition to improving the subject content by him/herself. This can also be done through audio recording also.
The academic planning for the programmes to be executed some members of the management are also involved. The practicing schools are contacted with the approval of the district educational authorities and the academic programme along with the schedule of visits is finalized with the teachers. In order to manage all the activities the college constitutes committees like; Appointment/selection Committee, Academic Development Committee, Infrastructure Development Committee, Extension and Linkage Committee, Discipline Committee and Progression and Examination Committee. All these committees work under over all control of the Principal of the college.
CURRICULAR TRANSACTION & EVALUATION
The college has simply adopted the academic calendar of Acharya Nagarjuna University with a small modification. The detailed activities of the college cannot be directly made out from the time table. The entire set of activities are represented in the mapping of the weekly programmes from which we will never be able to get the daily activities. The students and the teachers should have a clear information about the daily academic and other co-curricular activities for the entire year and plan their activities accordingly.
The college adopts interactive teaching-learning methods like quiz programs, seminars, group discussion ,elocution etc. Student centered activities like simulation, role-playing, project works are also adopted by the college for the betterment of the student teachers. The students opt for their first methodology at the time of Ed-CET examination and the second methodology is given to them after they are assessed before the commencement of the course programme.
Much importance has been given by the college to teaching practice which appears to be a necessity for a college of Education. Micro teaching, Macro teaching and Internship including data collection are the activities followed in practice teaching. In the micro teaching, importance is given to 05 teaching skills namely Skills of Introduction, Explanation, Questioning, Using Black board and Using teaching aids. In micro teaching, the teacher educator gives one demonstration lecture for each skill and five demonstration lectures in each methodology. The Student teachers spend 30 days in the practice teaching schools for internship and data collection. In each methodology every student teacher gives 15 practice lessons and observes 5 lessons of peer student. The student is also expected to write criticism on the lessons. The school teachers also observe the performance of the student teachers in five lessons and provide feed back to the college.
The co-curricular and extra curricular activities of the college are organized by the student teachers themselves under the supervision of the teacher educators. The student teachers write at least five assignments in each subject which appears to be really creditable from the point of view of teacher preparation by the college. In the mapping of the activities only two weeks are earmarked for assignments and tests. The completion of the activities within two weeks appear to be too ambitious taking into consideration 35 assignments for each student in a class strength of 100 students. The college claims to provide remedial teaching classes. However the procedure of identifying the poor performer is not explicitly made clear. The adoption of ET laboratory facilities in the curriculum transaction and the micro-teaching and macro-teaching practice is not made clear. But the desire to improve the quality of teacher training is quite abundant.
Research, development and Extension
The Shams-Ul-Uloom College of Eduation is relatively stronger in terms of the research qualifications of its teacher educators. Two out of ten teacher educators hold Ph.D Degrees and two more possess M.Phil degress. The Principal pursues Ph.D Study while four teacher educators have joined M.Phil course. The college subscribes good number of research Journals published by NCERT. The teachers are encouraged in their research activities by providing study leave. However, the college has to make inroads in Research Projects and Research Publications by the Faculty. The Faculty Participation in the National and International Seminars also has to be strengthened. While efforts have been made to produce Non-Print Instructional Materials, the quality of the produced instructional materials shows scope for improvement. It implies the need for in-service training of teacher educators in Instructional Technology. The college has a good collection of research tools in its Psychology Laboratory, but it needs proper utilisation by the teacher educators as well as teacher trainees. It is recommended that action research projects are initiated to promote research culture at the Micro Level.
Ambitions extension activities like village adoption and 'each teacher trainee teaching two adults' have been conceived and preliminary efforts have been made earnestly by the college, as evidenced by News paper Reports. While No consultancy services have been provided by the college, it also has to strengthen its networking and linkage with other institutions/organizations.
Infrastructure and Learning Resources
One of the major strengths of the Shams-Ul-Uloom College of Education is its Well equipped Labs. The Psychology Lab and the Science Labs deserve appreciation. Though the computer Lab has ten computers, the on-line facilities have to be accelerated further to meet the training needs of all the 100 teacher trainees. The college provides spacious areas, adequate furniture and needed facilities for its students. The ambience of the college is also congenial providing the needed academic climate. However, the human resources need to be trained in using the available Physical resources. The teachers are adequately qualified. The college should enhance the salary and provide better service conditions for the teachers. The location of the college is far away from the madding crowd of the town and a transportation facility would be convenient to the rural students from the far flung areas. This need for transportation has been conveyed by many students during the Interaction of the Peer Team with the students. There is strong Library with a collection of 5015 books and it is partially automated. The educational Technology has to be strengthened further with the addition of Video Recorder Facility for use in Micro-Teaching Sessions.
The Hostel Facilities provided to the Men and Women trainees, the Open-air auditorium and spacious play grounds need special mention. The electronic learning resource is an area in which the college has to improve very much.
Criterion 5: Student support and Progression.
The student support and progression of any institution is an indicator of the system efficiency of that institution. This institution has the tutor system in which ten students are under the care of each mentor. It also offers remedial courses to the students but no bridge courses are attempted. There is no dropout in the last three years.
Pass percentage during the last three years have been 94,93 and 98 respectively. However gold medals or university ranks are not obtained by any one of the students.
The Institution conducts mid-term and pre-final examinations regularly for the last three years. Unit wise tests are used by the faculty to identify the under-achievers. Advanced learners are given some additional projects in their elective subjects, which promote their talents and creativity. Career and Guidance Centers established in the institution help the students to appear for D.S.C examination. As per norms of the NCTE, the college has also created a website of the college, providing details regarding its aims and details of its faculty. This needs to be updated periodically.
Merit -cum - means scholarships, fee concession and loan facilities are made available to a good number of the students. Health care is also available to them. It may be noted that residential accommodation is provided to six members of the faculty & two non-teaching staff of the institution. Hostel accommodation is provided for fifty students including men and women. However, it is desirable to shift the hostel to separate buildings constructed for the purpose. The institution has a spacious sports field with outdoor and indoor sports facilities. Separate rest rooms for men and women exist. Regular feedback regarding the learning experience is collected from the students. The institution has organized one inter collegiate cultural event but participation of students in cultural events are not adequate. Though some students participated in sports, no achievements have been made. Alumni association was established in 2003-2004. The institution has an active student council. Placement cell has been established recently. Placement services and alumni association need be strengthened.
Students are encouraged to publish articles, stories, cartoons etc., The tuition fees and special fees are charged @ Rs. 10500 and Rs. 1500 respectively. The welfare programmes of the institution include running a hostel and providing scholarships to students. There is a student council nominated by the faculty. Subject clubs such as Mathematics club, Science club, Social studies club and Telugu club help to undertake co-curricular activities in an effective manner.
Criterion 6: Organization and Management
The effective functioning of any institution largely depends upon the efficiency of the organization and management system adopted by the institution. Day to day administration of the college is done by the principal. The chairman allocates resources for the development of the college. Various sub-committees are formed to help the Chairman and Principal for the smooth conduct of the institution.
The college has a functional internal quality Assurance cell. The governing body and the staff council regularly meet and they take decisions on various issues. Technology is used to monitor the functioning of the college. Loan facility for teaching and non-teaching staff is the only welfare scheme available in the college. In order to monitor the performance of the teaching staff, self-appraisal technique is adopted. The institution has internal and external financial audit mechanism. The resources of the college are mainly donations and the fees collected from the students. ICT technology is not widely used in the institution for administration. Work efficiency of the non-teaching staff is checked by an in built mechanism of the institution. There is a good organizational climate
All the members of the staff are satisfied with the salary provided to them and the treatment extended to them by the management. The faculty are appointed on a regular basis. On the whole, the organizational climate is democratic and conducive and the Management receives appreciation invariably from the Staff and the students.
OVERALL ANALYSIS AND SUGGESTIONS
Shams-Ul-Uloom College of education near Markapur, Prakasam distict, Andhra Pradesh, established during 2003 attained minority status after one year. A realatively young institution has come forward to get accredited by NAAC. This speaks of the confidence of the management regarding the curricular and co-curricular activities adopted in the college. The college has been admitting 85% of the students from the muslim community who are qualified through Ed-CET entrance test conducted by the Andhra Pradesh State council for Higher education. The management has the desire to serve the poorer section of the muslim community students. The remaining 15% of the students are admitted by the management from other religions. Thus, there is an intermix of the students from different religions providing an opportunity to the management to achieve unity in diversity.
The college has a group of well qualified teaching staff which also has persons from different religions. Some of the Faculty have rich academic and administrative experience having worked in Government and other institutions. The college needs to integrate their expertise for better performance in the academic programme. The infrastructure created are quite good. The science, ET and Psychology laboratories are highly adequate. The Faculty members need to infuse innovations in the preparation of teaching aids by the teacher trainees.
The college has been organizing several programmes on important National holidays useful to the society at large. For example, one day programs on children's day, Gandhi Jayanthi day, Science day, AIDS Awareness etc are organized regularly, bringing to the knowledge of the teacher trainees and the local residents the importance and significance of these days. Another important activity conceptualized by the College is to take up literacy programme for 60 illiterates in the Village Darimadugu. Even though the college has not adopted any programme of Action, there is a strong desire to adopt the Village and eradicate illiteracy.
Although the college has created good infrastructure, adopted many useful activities to train the student trainees to become effective teachers, the Peer Team observed many areas of concerns. In order to see that the college improves its activities to achieve excellence, the Peer team wishes to offer the following suggestions :
The college needs to prepare detailed academic calendar for the entire year depicting the activities on daily basis.
The video and audio recording of the micro and macro teaching practice by the student teachers may be used for helping the students for self correction.
The block teaching practice classess of the student teacher may be observed by the Methods Master along with the school teacher for proper evaluation of the students' performance.
The teacher educators need to initiate Action Research through the student teachers.
Various clubs like language club, Science club, Maths club, social studies club need to be appropriately activated.
Inspiring Academic Leadership, Dedicated team work and collective responsibility of all the staff members will enhance the academic quality of the college.
Improved involvement of staff and effective managerial Techniques are needed to get the best out of the Human and Physical Resources available in the college in view of the availability of two Ph.D and two M.Phil holders.
Outreach programmes to benefit the nearby community have to be organised in a systematic way and their sustainability has to be ensured through effective follow-up measures.
The present gap between the availability and utilisation of technological resources has to be narrowed down. Coordinated efforts are recommended to integrate the talents of the teachers.
The training needs of the teachers have to identified. Need-based Training Programmes and Periodical Professional Development activities have to be organised for the academic enrichment.
Faculty Participation in Seminar, Conference and workshop is another area, which needs due attention.
Young faculty members may be sponsored for professional development programmes; experienced faculty may share their expertise by organizing frequent progammes on frontier topics to expand the professional efficiency of the faulty and students.
