Media coverage of St Anns College of Education, Mangalore Karnataka, Karnataka
NAAC report of ST ANNS COLLEGE OF EDUCATIONSection 1: Preface
St. Ann's College of Education volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and submitted its self-study report in April 2001. A peer team was constituted by the council to visit the institution and validate the self-study report. The peer team consisting Prof. C.L. Kundu as Chairman and Prof. S. Padmanabhaiah as Member visited the institution for two days i.e., on 24th and 25th July 2001 with Dr. M.S. Shyamasundar, Assistant Adviser, NAAC functioning as the Coordinating Officer.
St. Ann's College of Education, the first training college along the West Coast, founded in 1943, the initiative taken by Mother M. Josephine, A.C., to train women graduate teachers as agents of change in our society. The college upgraded in 1992 with Post-Graduate Department of Education has an added thrust to develop persons with an outlook of research and scholarship.
St. Ann's College of Education, is affiliated to Mangalore University, covering a total area of eight acres, has an intake capacity of 100 students in B.Ed., 30 in M.Ed. and 30 in PGDCA programmes. The institution has got UGC recognition under 2f in 1981 and under 12B in 1993.
The college has a well-qualified teaching faculty of 11 permanent and 6 temporary members. There are 13 non-teaching staff members. The college has a central library, computer centre, sports facilities, hostels, guestrooms and Non-resident student restrooms. The college maintains different kinds of welfare measures including an informal student service cell and a placement cell.
The peer team carefully perused and analyzed the self-study report submitted by the institution. During institutional visit, the team went through all the relevant documents, visited the departments and the facilities, and interacted with the various constituents of the institution. The academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, sports and extension facilities of the institution were verified and studied in depth. The peer team also interacted at length with the Governing Body, Head of the Institution, faculty, non-teaching staff, students, parents and alumnae of the institution. Based on the above exercise, and keeping in mind the criteria identified by NAAC, the peer team has taken the value judgment. The assessment of the institution under various criteria, the commendable features of the institution as well as the issues of concern are given in the following pages.
Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
As an affiliated college of the Mangalore University, the college follows the syllabi prescribed by the University for the B.Ed., M.Ed., and PGDCA cources in the non-semester (annual) pattern. Of course, in all the programmes the student has the choice of opting 2 to 3 courses (papers) of his/her interest and suitable to his/her basic qualifications.
The college took the initiation to start post graduation in Education, a course not existing in the statute of Mangalore University, as there is no Department of Education in the University. The syllabus was prepared by the committee headed by its Principal and submitted to the University. After two years with great struggle the college was permitted to start the M.Ed. course and St. Ann's College of Education could become the first affiliated institution to run M.Ed. course under Mangalore University. This shows the commitment, enthusiasm and conviction of the college to grow and develop new courses and to raise its level of efficiency. This has been a major step towards regulation and standardization of the courses of study.
The principal of the college being the Chair Person of Board of Studies in Education and Dean, Faculty of Education of Mangalore University, played the leadership role and took interest in course design, modifications if necessary, developing curricular and co-curricular activities, etc and got them approved by the University and finally disseminated the same to other colleges and neighbouring Universities in Karnataka State. Further, the college has been a trend setter for developing need based courses and subject specific teaching learning material for elementary teacher education as well.
Criterion II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
The college being a minority institution 50% of the seats are filled with those candidates allotted by Karnataka Government on the basis of the merit both in the qualifying exam, i.e., first degree and in the state wide Common Entrance Test. The remaining 50% of the seats are filled on the basis of the entrance test conducted by the college and counseling.
The periodical continuous internal assessment is inherent in the conduct of B.Ed. and M.Ed. courses. On the basis of the performance of the students the personal guidance prior to practice teaching and clarifying the conceptual doubts at regular intervals is being practiced by all teacher educators. This, indeed, is a significant innovative practice.
The college has programmes for content enrichment and special schemes to meet the needs of advance learners. The teachers working in the institution have the practice of adopting different strategies in planning their lessons and attending curricular and co-curricular activities, of course, as per the year plan prepared at institutional level. Apart from regular teaching, the college conducts workshops, group work, library work followed by paper presentation, demonstration of teaching by students, peer pairing for learning different portions or for revision etc for making the learners to be more active in the process of teaching - learning. The academic calender of the above cited programmes is prepared well in advance.
The college conducts internal assessment through periodical unit tests and assignments. The students who are slow learners are being taken care of through remedial classes. The results at final exams (University) reveal the standards maintained by the institution.
The members of the teaching staff are being selected by calling applications through newspaper advertisement as per procedure and selection committee as per norms of the College Management. The principal has an informal and indirect methods of assessing performance of the teachers based on the feedback reports of students, their performance in the final exams etc. The institution conducts orientation programmes for teacher educators working in all the affiliated colleges of education to Mangalore University. Apart from these courses, the teachers are encouraged by the management to participate in National and International seminars, workshops and conferences.
Criterion III: Research, Consultancy & Extension
Although there are 6 staff members with Ph.D., the institution is not officially permitted by the Mangalore University for undertaking research guidance leading to production of M.Phils and Ph.Ds. The institution is hopeful of getting autonomous status soon and probably at that time they may guide registered research scholars for Ph.D. degree. However, the faculty is fully involved in various kinds of research activities such as guiding M.Ed dissertations, undertaking project works, doing personal research leading to M.Phils and Ph.D titles etc. At present 2 faculty members are on study leave and doing Ph.D. Two projects worth Rs. 2,82,000/- sponsored by Government of Karnataka are being undertaken by the faculty of the college.
The college has committed to undertake a variety of extension activities, viz., Community development activities, Health and Hygiene awareness programmes, adult education and literacy programmes, AIDS awareness programmes, Blood donation camps, Environment awareness programmes etc. Apart from these officially the United Board of Higher Education in Asia is extending financial support to the institution to conducting the following training programmes:
for wardens and staff of ashrams, orphanages and Govt. hostels;
for physical training teachers of economically backward rural based primary schools;
for rural primary school teachers on skills of creative thinking etc.
To be precise, the All India Council of Secondary Education, Govt. of India had sanctioned the Department of Extension Services in 1953 itself to the college. Of course, as a policy the extension service departments in the country were closed in 1992. But the institution is involved actively in the extension activities even now.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The master plan of the college indicates that there are sufficient academic buildings, playground, staff quarters etc. Further, it has provision for expansion if the management wants to start new courses in the college. The management provides sufficient financial resources apart from grants from UGC and enhanced fees paid by students. The dedication and seriousness of the management is self evident.
The college has a good library with more than 23,000 books and about 60 journals. It maintains book bank also. The library has a large collection of audio-visual aids relevant to pedagogical areas. This indeed is a unique feature with commendation. The library also developed a section for collection CDs. The college has a central computer centre with 25 PCs with all required configuration and a few with multimedia facility. The management wants to add a few more with multimedia facility. The internet facility is also available for staff and students.
The hostel facility is accommodating roughly 50% of the students. The facilities of library and computer centre are made available during holidays, as there are residential inmates on the campus.
The management is extending financial assistance in the form of interest free loan scholarships to the needy students and encourages them to persue education.
Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
The institution is producing extremely good results in all the three courses. The dropout (discontinue the studies in the middle) rate is very low and insignificant. The institution has very good track record having produced persons who occupy high positions in the society. The interaction with Alumnae along with parents gave indications in this regard.
In the last five years 12 students of this college having passed UGC/NET is yet another distinction achieved.
The Principal of the institution obtains informal feedback from the outgoing students and basing on that she plans for further improvements in the academic activities and tries to plug out the weaknesses.
A few students of this college were able to get State Govt. Scholarships. The management also provides scholarships and interest free loans to the needy students.
The placement officer receives information through principal about the requirement of teachers to local institutions and as per their request. In the last year 80 B.Ed students and 8 PG students were suitably placed on jobs even before they completed their courses. The Alumni Association of the college is also very active and plays an important role in shaping and developing the institution.
Criterion VI: Organisation and Management.
The management of the institution is a Christian missionary serving for the upliftment of poor by providing educational facilities. To fulfil this objective the management established many educational institutions - primary, secondary and special schools and colleges. Of course most of them are aided and obtaining public grants. The governing body of the management involves actively in coordinating different activities of the college and in solving organisational problems as they arise from time to time. More over, the principal of the institution, being well experienced and devoted person, naturally trying to create a congenial environment in the organization. We believe that there will be fewer problems. All the teaching staff are allotted responsibilities to check different activities of the institutions indicating the democratic norm of decentralisation in the administration - a good sign.
The college conducted professional development programmes for both teaching and non-teaching staff members.
The fees structure is as prescribed by the Karnataka State Govt. The percentage of expenditure on academic, administrative and student welfare services; the budget allocations and actual expenditure statement reveal that there exists a sound financial discipline in the management.
Criterion VII: Healthy Practices
The college was established in 1943 and good traditions and practices were developed over the years. The management is maintaining linkages with state, National and international agencies and organisations to enrich their programmes of education. There is ample evidence that the institution is developing on sound lines. Although, it is an affiliated college of Mangalore University, it has academic freedom in formulating new courses, as the principal of this college is the Dean, Faculty of Education of Mangalore University. The conduct of the programmes, professional growth of the teachers, student welfare measures, community development activities etc undertaken by the institution indicate that the institution is maintaining all healthy practices anybody expects from it. Some of the highlights of healthy practices are Citizenship Training Camp, Socially Useful Productive Work activities, Human Resource Development Programmes, World Environmental Day, Peace Education and Counselling Skills.
Section 3: Overall Analysis
The peer team, after going through the self-study report and after its visit to various academic and physical facilities, is very much impressed by the progress of the St.Ann's College of Education. The college has earned a reputation for imparting quality education and a sense of discipline to the younger generation. Even Dr. Lakshmanaswami Mudaliar, the Vice Chancellor of Madras University and later the Chairman of Secondary Education Commission (1952-1953), when he visited St. Ann's with a high ranking team, on 5th March, 1943, as Chariman of the Committee for the Affiliation of St. Ann's Training College remarked 'If your secondary trained teachers are so good, how much better your graduate trained teachers will be'. The college celebrated Golden Jubliee in 1993 with an excellent track record as published in College Souvenir. The State Government has forwarded the proposal submitted the College to Ministry of Human Resource Development for its elevation to the status of 'Institute of Advanced Study in Education'.
The peer team considers that there are a number of features of the institution's approach to quality assurance and standards, which it would wish to commend. Also, the peer team would like to bring to the attention of the college certain concerns for its consideration. The peer team would like to commend the institution on the following aspects:
encouragement and the support given by the management to the institution
dedication and commitment of the teaching and non-teaching staff of the institution
effective leadership and good human relationship resulting in efficient team work
strict discipline maintained in the institution
smooth functioning of the tutor-ward system that facilitates the monitoring of the students, in both academic and personal issues.
facilitating aspect of the institution to promote student participation and achievement in community work and other related extension activities.
adequacy, maintenance and future planning of infrastructure
Keeping in view the future plans of the Institution, the peer team would suggest the following to the institution to consider:
While the peer team appreciates the overall approach of the college, the college should identify specific objectives and make strategic plans to attain the same.
The college may explore the possibility of introducing more course options to increase flexibility in course combinations keeping in mind the latest trends and societal needs.
Access to computers and student support services like placement cell need to be strengthened. With the appointment of a new counselor, the counseling and guidance cell may evolve effective planning and suitable strategies for the benefit of the students.
With the anticipated status of Autonomy and Advanced Study in Education of the Institution, the administrative staff may have to play a greater role in the functioning of the college. The staff being well qualified, the college may train them accordingly in the use of computers to discharge their duties effectively.
Formal mechanism for collecting feedback from students on the various aspects of their learning experience at the departmental/institutional level may be instituted.
With the construction of new buildings, the colleges should make provision to improve facilities for the faculty, like staff rooms and intercom facilities. More sports facilities be also provided.
The self-appraisal by teachers is being implemented. However, other appraisal mechanism of teachers need to be formalized and institutionalised.
The research component is to be strengthened further.
The library working hours may be extended by having additional staff on shift duty.
The residential accommodation and dining hall may be in one block for hostel inmates.
