Media coverage of BVVS Basaveshwar College of Physical Education, Bagalkot Karnataka, Karnataka
NAAC report of BVVS Basaveshwar College of Physical EducationSECTION I
B.V.V. Sangha's Basveshwar College of Physical Education, Bagalkot 587102, Karnataka, volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and submitted Self-Appraisal Report (SAR) to the NAAC on 27-6-2003. A Peer Team was constituted by the NAAC to visit the Institute and validate the SAR. The Peer Team consisting of Dr. Madan Lal Kamlesh, (Former Principal of LNCPE), Chairman and Coordinator, 'Lakshmi', 435, Urban Estate, Phase - I, Patiala, and Prof. Jasraj Singh, Director, Academic Staff College, Laxmibai National Institute of Physical Education, Gwalior, Ms, Nayana Nimkar, Principal, Chandra Shekhar Aghase College of Physical Education, Pune, as members visited the B.V.V. Sangha's Basveshwar College of Physical Education, Bagalkot, Karnataka for two days from 22-23 November, 2004. Shri B.S. Ponmudiraj, Assistant Advisor, NAAC, was also present to coordinate.
Situated in the extreme north of Karnataka at Bagalkot, B.V.V. Sangha's Basveshwar College of Physical Education, Bagalkot, Karnataka, is one of the 102 institutions run by a philanthropist organization named B.V.V. Sangha established in 1906.
Founded by Bilur Gurubasav Swamiji, and presently headed by Shri Veeranna Charantimath, M.L.A - a dynamic and devoted personality dedicated to the cause of education especially for the upliftment of the rural people of the area, the Basveshwar College of Physical Education was established in 1981. The founding organization envisioned the College to be a centre of excellence for producing dedicated leaders in physical education and sports. The mission statement of the College focuses on providing meaningful experiences, learning, teaching and training to their trainees through the medium of physical activities for service to humanity.
Affiliated to the Karnatak University, Dharwad, the College started the Bachelor of Physical Education programme in 1982 with approved intake of 40 (forty) students and Master of Physical Education. in 2001 with 20 seats. The College has also been running a one-year Certificate in Physical Education Course with 60 as the intake since 1981, which, as per directions of the National Council of Teacher Education will have two-year duration with effect from 2005-06.
According to the Management of the Institution, this is one of the four unaided colleges of physical education in the Karnatak University and receives no assistance from the Government in any form. The College has appointed one principal and eight faculty members who are supported by three part time teachers. Whereas three of the Faculty including the principal, have been exempt from NET/SLET as they were appointed prior to 1983, the rest of the teachers are yet to qualify the National Eligibility Test. Except for those granted exemption, the other teachers need to have the approval of the University for teaching higher courses. Claiming to be a self-financed institution, the College is not following the UGC norms governing teachers' eligibility, scales of pay, student-teacher ratio and career-advancement guidelines.
As the situation stands today, additional unspecified number of students (who are already in service as primary school teachers in the State) are admitted in the BPEd course on the directives of the State Government on year to year basis. For instance, 17 such students have been admitted in BPEd course in the current year (2003-04). This is an additional burden on the Institution vis-à-vis number of the Faculty members imparting teaching to three different level courses.
Besides a librarian's post, there are 03 sanctioned administrative and 05 supporting staff posts, all of which are filled and the incumbents are performing their duties quite satisfactorily. Apart from this, casual labour is also engaged on need basis and paid from out of the maintenance budget of the College.
The College was granted Certificate of Recognition by the NCTE vide Order No: SRO-96/NCTE/ 3262 dated: 09/12/1996 for conducting the one-year BPEd. and one-year CPEd programmes with an intake 'to be approved by State Government/University, and subject to maintaining NCTE norms of pupil-teacher ratio'. Later on the Karnataka University, vide their Order No. ED 30 UDC 84 Bangalore, dated 8th June, 1984 sanctioned 40 seats for the BPEd. Course. Concurrently, the Government of Karnatak permitted the College to have an intake of 60 students for the CPEd course vide their Order No. 359 EPE -81, Bangalore dated. 25th August 1981. The NCTE, vide its Order SRO/NCTE/ 2000-2001/7774. Dated. 7.9.2001 permitted the College to start the MPEd. Course of two-year duration from the academic session 2001-2002 with an annual intake of 20 students, subject to fulfilling the laid down conditions therein. Subsequently the Karnataka University, vide its notification KJ/ACA/Afflia/2001-2/77 dated, 9.11.2001 accorded affiliation to the College for the Master's course on a permanently unaided basis. The Basveshwar College of Physical Education, Bagalkot was recognized by the University Grants Commission under clause 2(f) in February, 1994 and 12(b) in July, 1996 of the UGC Act, 1956.
The Peer Team carefully analyzed the SAR submitted by the College and went through the relevant documents available at the College. During the visit, the Team visited the academic, administrative, hostel and other units and also interacted with the Governing Body, principal, staff, students, supporting staff, parents, alumni and practice teaching schools of Basveshwar College of Physical Education, Bagalkot, Karnataka.. Based on this and the criteria identified by NAAC/NCTE, the Peer Team assessed the College. The Report is being presented under the Six criteria along with the suggestions received from the staff, students, parents, alumni and Peer Team for its improvement.
CRITERION I : CURRICULAR DESIGN AND PLANNING
The mission statement of Bashveshwar College of Physical Education, Bagalkot, Karnataka focuses on providing meaningful experiences, learning, teaching and training to their trainees through the medium of physical activities for service to humanity. On the basis of this foundational mission statement with reference to their policy of excellence, the objectives of the College seek:

The College admits students to BPEd., and MPEd., courses in accordance with the directions of the Karnatak University, Dharwad; however, the admission tests and procedures are formulated by the College. The College sends the lists of the admitted candidates to the University for formal approval. In case of the Certificate of Physical Education (CPEd), the representatives of the District Education Department (i.e.District Superintendent of Physical Education and Bloc Physical Education officer) take part in the admission process.
The admissions in all the three courses are made purely on merit basis. In the current year, 40 students in BPEd were admitted on the basis of (1) academic achievements, (2) physical fitness test, and (3) sports achievements. It needs to be mentioned that 17 students were admitted to the BPEd course on deputation from the State Government. In MPEd., 10 students were admitted by the College on merit on two criteria: academic records and sports achievements. This apart, as per stipulations made in the University's sanction order, 10 students were selected by the Postgraduate Department of Physical Education, Karnatak University and admitted to the College, thereby making the total number of students in MPEd., 20. Similarly in CPEd., the admission of 60 students was made on merit basis considering candidates' academic achievement, score on physical fitness test and achievement in games and sports. The College follows the reservation policy of the State Government regarding admission to these Courses.
The Team was informed that the College functions for 210 days in a year, of which 180 days are net teaching days. Pre-practice preparation takes one week and total practice teaching days are 15. The curricula prescribed by Karnatak University, Dharwar are being followed for BPEd., and MPEd. Course, and for CPEd., that of Karnataka State Secondary Education Board. While the yearly pattern of the MPEd., course was changed to semester-course, and additional paper (the Indian Constitution) was added to the BPEd. syllabus by the University. Out of the four colleges of physical education within the jurisdiction of the Karnatak University, this is the only College that runs three course and is purely un-aided; the other Colleges offer only BPEd., and CPEd. Courses. However, the practice teaching lessons prescribed by the University in case of BPEd,. and those prescribed by the State Board are less in comparison to the NCTE guidelines..
The present curricula of BPEd., and CPEd. are bi-focal. They comprise of theory of Physical Education, and Skill and Prowess besides the Teaching Ability. The MPEd. Syllabus again is bi-focal: Theory of Physical Education and Practical Activities.

The College has established a good net-working with community and schools. The College has a Governing Council consisting of a Chairman, six member and Principal, Basveshwar College of Physical Education, Bagalkot as the Member Secretary. There is no teacher representative on the Governing Council.

The teachers of the College and the physical education teacher(s) of the concerned school(s) supervise all the lessons. Each student takes at least one lesson a day. The quality of teaching practice is being enhanced by providing rigorous feedback received from the school setting regularly. The school teachers should also be encouraged to give feedback to the students so that they can benefit from the teaching skills of the experienced teachers.
Three teachers out of eight College teachers have attended Orientation and Refresher Courses. They occasionally do attend seminars and conferences.
