Media coverage of All-India Khilafat Committee College of Education, Mumbai Maharashtra, Maharashtra

NAAC report of All-India Khilafat Committee College of Education

Section I: PREFACE
All India Khilafat Committee's College of Education ('AIKC - COE' hereafter) was established in July 1989 by the All India Khilafat Committee, Trust No.B-703 registered under Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950. AIKC - COE offers one - year face - to - face mode regular B.Ed. programme for preparing secondary stage teachers. AIKC - COE was initially provisionally affiliated to the University of Mumbai on 1st November 1991 vide their letter dated 1st November 1991. It has not been granted permanent affiliation by University of Mumbai so far. The affiliation is renewed every year against a payment of fee of Rs.14,000/- The University of Mumbai approved continuation of affiliation of AIKC - COE for the session 2000 - 2001 vide letter no. AFF/Recog 1529 of 2002 dated 11th April, 2002. AIKC - COE is a self - financed unaided teacher education institution. It has so far not been recognized by University Grant Commission. The B.Ed. programme of AIKC - COE was recognized by the National Council for Teacher Education vide their letter No. WRC / 5—6/20/2000/6510 dated 8th Sept 2000 with an approved intake of 100 students. AIKC played a historic role in the freedom struggle especially during 1919-1925. The Khilafat House is known for promoting communal harmony and national integration. AIKC - COE is the only Urdu-medium college of education in Mumbai and it has maintained this distinction over years. Besides, it has espoused the cause of providing teacher education to young Muslim females to groom them as effective teachers in Urdu medium schools. English and Urdu are the medium languages of instruction. University of Mumbai however does not conduct its B. Ed. Examination in Urdu. AIKC - COE provides all necessary inputs to enable its students to write their answers in English at the University Examinations. The institution is a religious minority institution located in an urban locality of Mumbai. Its campus area is 3600 ft2 i.e. 400 yds2. The institution offers a one-year diploma course in computer with an intake of 80 in the same building. This peer team report pertains to AIKC - COE B. Ed. programme only. AIKC - COE has a faculty of 8 excluding the Principal. None of the teachers possess the degree of Ph.D. in Education; only one has qualified herself for the degree of M.Phil. in Education. One faculty member is serving on temporary and was appointed in January, 2004. Six teachers including the Principal have cleared the UGC NET/SET and are exempted from it. The total service of the faculty members serving AIKC - COE on permanent basis ranges between 14 and 01 years. The institution has an administrative staff of 9; of these six are class IV employees. They support the B.Ed. The faculty members are on the pay scale approved by the State Government of Maharashtra, the Principal is on the pay scale recommended by the Fifth Pay Commission while the lecturer on temporary basis receives a consolidated salary of Rs.7,500/- p.m.

The current batch of 100 students (M=15, F=85) has 89 from Mumbai; 11 from the rest of Maharashtra state and none from other states. The institution does not have any foreign student. The institution has helped its students from outside Mumbai in getting accommodation in the neighbourhood at affordable price.

The institution's overall result is above 85% during the last two years. In session 2001 - 02, 99 of its students appeared in the University exam; of these 85 (85.9%) passed and of these 17.6% were placed in the first division. In 2002 - 03, the annual result was 87% and of these 12.6% secured first division. In 2002 - 03, two students passed examination with distinction, University of Mumbai.

AIKC - COE had 270 working days during the 2001 - 02 session; of these 205 were teaching days. In 2002 - 03 session, the institution had 296 working days and 210 teaching days. These are more than what NCTE norms prescribe. The institution subscribes to 19 journals / periodicals. AIKC - COE have neither any ongoing research projects nor any linkages with national or international institutions. The institution had a deficit budget during the last three sessions.

AIKC - COE prepared its Self - Appraisal Report (SAR) during October 2003 and volunteered for assessment by submitting it to the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore. NAAC constituted a three - member peer team comprising Prof. V.K. Sabharwal, former Dean & Head, Education, University of Delhi as Chairman - Coordinator and Prof. Karuna Chanana, former Chairperson, Zakir Hussain Centre for Educational Studies, New Delhi, and Dr. (Sr.) Claire, Principal, St. Ann's College of Education, Mangalore as members for validation of the SAR through an on-site visit. The peer team visited AIKC - COE on the 25th and the 26th February 2004.

The peer team studied and analysed the SAR submitted by AIKC - COE. During the institutional visit, the peer team visited various laboratories and academic departments of COE, went through various documents and records provided by the institution and interacted with the members of the Management Committee, the Principal, the faculty, the students, the alumni, and the non - teaching staff of AIKC - COE. On the basis of their analysis of these inputs and their interaction with various groups of stakeholders, the peer team assessed AIKC - COE in terms of its strengths and areas of concern. Criterion - wise analysis of the strengths and areas of concern is given in Section II while overall analysis and suggestions for further improvement are given in Section III.

Section II: Criterion - wise Analysis
Criterion 1: Curricular Design & Planning
AIKC - COE being a religious minority institution admitted 50% of its students under minority quota till 2002 - 03. With effect from session 2003 - 04, all TEIs affiliated to University of Mumbai have been asked to conduct admissions in a de - centralized manner. Consequently, AIKC - COE also admitted its students, observing at least 45% marks in graduation as eligibility criterion, through a written entrance test and an interview. Interview was meant to assess candidate's speech disorders, if any. In the past AIKC - COE has not discriminated against challenged students. It may now explore the possibility of reserving a few seats for mildly challenged meritorious students hereafter.

During the 2002 - 03 session, AIKC - COE started its academic session on 11th June; the last seat under management quota was filled on 15th June' 2002 and the session ended on 30th March 2003. During the last session, each student had to give 5 micro and 25 school - based whole class lessons. The institution does not assess its student's content knowledge and skills after their admission. The self-instructional material developed by the institution may be used for providing remedial or bridge courses for its educationally disadvantaged students. AIKC - COE doesn't have any systematic mechanism for challenging its advanced learners. The faculty do not develop course outlines, may be because the University of Mumbai B.Ed. syllabus is already unitized. AIKC - COE is yet to evolve the practice of mid - session review and corrections based thereon. AIKC - COE students have nominal flexibility in B.Ed. programme, which is limited to choosing a particular SUPW (one out of six options) and a Special Field in Education an optional paper under Paper IV Section 2(1 out of 2 options). Under the University syllabus, each B.Ed. student is expected to choose one teaching subject from within the papers offered at graduation; the other subject may be other than those offered at graduation. The college could offer more optional papers Special Fields of Education. The faculty members also need to teach these additional optional papers effectives. In SUPW each student prepares six items of the same kind under a SUPW activity. The institution may modify this approach and focus on getting a variety of items prepared. Male students may be provided SUPW options commensurate with their skills and interests.

The overall mission of AIKC - COE B.Ed. programme is 'to provide total education i.e. integrated development of critical ability, professional ethics and personality development'. This overall mission statement has been further analysed into 12 goals. However AIKC - COE is yet to evolve a scheme of assessment to ascertain whether it attains its goals and its mission and to what extent. Feedback from students is obtained informally and orally; no feedback on the B. Ed. Programme is obtained from academic peers and employers. Written assessment of the course, facilities, teaching, and faculty performance may be taken from students periodically and especially at the end of the course. The institution claims that 'review and re-designing of curriculum / teaching programme is done at the commencement of the academic year; however it needs to be made systematic and purpose - oriented. AIKC - COE uses University of Mumbai syllabus for its B.Ed. programme; it hasn't introduced or formulated any new courses. Its community and school networking is in place but it needs to be strengthened and feedback procured on its effectiveness.

Even though the internship component of the B. Ed. programme has been reduced by the University to just one week, the AIKC - COE may think of going beyond this minimal requirement and make its practice - teaching mostly internship-based. The AIKC - COE and its practice teaching schools could work together for making practice in teaching programme a partnership venture.

AIKC - COE is quite active about using strategies for making its programme more interdisciplinary. The institution may now plan how self - learning can be formally and systematically promoted through its programme and how school experiences component can be made more broad-based, varied and a part of students' assessment. While the institution endeavours to attain its 15 institutional objectives through its curricular and co-curricular activities, it may now evolve a mechanism for monitoring their effectiveness in terms of attainment of its avowed goals and objectives.

Criterion 2: Curriculum Transaction and Evaluation
AIKC - COE has an academic programme schedule that includes list of holidays and dates of various events including staff meetings. It does not seem to be based on inputs generated through session - end review, nor does it indicate anything about transaction of theory component of the programme. These need to be reflected in AIKC - COE academic calendar. The academic calendar could be made a part of the AIKC - COE diary supplied to each student and priced nominally. Interactive teaching - learning techniques is being adopted by the faculty in addition to lecture as the main technique of course transaction. Pedagogic - content analysis would need to be treated systematically in order to enable students develop necessary skills. Core teaching skills are developed by the faculty through micro - teaching. The focus of five micro lessons is on skills of introducing a lesson, probing, explaining, writing blackboard work and stimulus variation. Besides, students deliver 10 simulated lessons and 20 whole class lessons in schools. AIKC - COE organizes its practice - teaching in 16 schools even though it has a faculty of seven. The schools are selected as and when required and at time additional faculty are engaged as guest supervisors. The faculty apprises all students of the evaluation scheme and division of marks at the start of the session. The institution, however, needs to evolve a systematic mechanism for ensuring how far the course objectives are being attained by its students. During 2002 - 03, three faculty members participated in one / two days seminars / conference. During 2003 - 2004, this activity increased considerably. The institution needs to make its faculty development prgrammes a permanent feature.

The self - appraisal proforma used by AIKC - COE for its faculty is essentially the one used for annual confidential report; it needs to be modified and based on various parameters of faculty performance. It would do well to think of putting an effective mechanism for faculty appraisal in place and institutionalizing it now. The institution conducts a session on value education and promotes it through morning assembly too. Value education activities could be more secular. More of interactive sessions and use of activity-based approaches would be a lot more effective. The institution emphasizes personal habits like cleanliness, regularity, punctuality etc; to promote civic responsibilities among its students. Care of the elderly and service to the destitute are also emphasized. Personality development is promoted through co - curricular activities. Learning to learn, use of ICT, learning to work together as well as independently are promoted through theoretical inputs; providing first - hand experiences can prove far more effective for attaining these and the programme needs to provide necessary space to these inputs. Student teachers are guided to undertake minor project activities as part of their assignments in particular subjects. This needs to be strengthened further.

Criterion 3: Research, Development and Extension
The institution does not have any research committee and may be because of this research by the faculty has not been able to pick up yet.

The college does not undertake research projects nor is the faculty research supported except to give a few days study leave. Research has to be strengthened in the college.

Various inputs necessary for promoting faculty research need to be put in place and instutionalised. Action research is no longer a part of the revised B. Ed. Syllabus. However, all educationists agree that action research can improve the quality of programme transaction, institutional climate as well as functioning. All excellence-oriented institutions treat action research as a priority area. AIKC - COE may also promote action research. The best way to promote it would be through building up a culture of research in the institution supported by research by the faculty. The faculty are not members of academic bodies nor have they been recognized / awarded so far, may be because of lack of published work. Since AIKC - COE is an undergraduate college; it has no research scholars. The extension cell is looked after by the principal who is assisted by two teachers trained in extension activity. Extension activities are conducted in collaboration with the Department of Adult and Continuing Education and Extension, University of Mumbai, for environmental and population education, working with school, community development etc. However, extension and outreach activities need to be undertaken on regular basis. It will be good to collaborate with GOs and NGOs for this purpose.

Criterion 4: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college is located within the Khilafat House at Byculla. The total carpet area of the institution in 11902 sq. feet. Although there is optimal utilization of physical resources there is a constraint of space. The college shares its resources with the management, whenever required, for seminars, workshops, lectures, etc. On office days and holidays, the building is used for social and community services.

Maintenance of the institutional infrastructure is carried out with the support of the management. The college staff and student teachers assist in keeping the premises clean. They are given responsibilities of ensuring proper sitting arrangements in the lecture hall, keeping the common rooms neat and tidy. A separate portfolio for 'Beautification' is maintained for keeping the college premises clean and green.

The institution has been running on a deficit budget of nearly Rs.1,63,000; Rs.3,67,000 and 0.85 lakhs as per the audited reports of March 2001, 2002, 2003 respectively. It has not indicated how it meets the budget.

The library has a total stock of 2235 as on 27th August 2003. Network system is followed for issue and return of books. Students are issued three books for a week. The library doesn't have the book bank facility. The library stock is being computerized. Annual library budget is around Rs.30,000/-. Library Advisory Committee consists of the Principal, three faculty members and the librarian. The faculty members can also borrow books from the University library. Overall, the collection and books in the library needs to be increased. All library services may be computerized to promote readership. Analysis of data on issue and return of books till 25th February 2003 reveals that 17% students got not more than 10 books issued while only 9% students got 50 or more books issued. Two students got 87 books issued! The data on issue of books to the faculty till 25/02/2004 reveals a minimum of 17 and a maximum of 62 with an average of 35.4.

AIKC - COE maintains a psychology laboratory which contains adequate tests and instruments. ET lab needs to be equipped with necessary equipment as per NCTE norms. Teaching aids are adequate and their number increases every year. Science lab too should be put in place because a large number of students opt for teaching of science.

The provides for many indoor games and some outdoor games. However, students do not participate in the state and national level meets. The college conducts a variety of workshops for SUPW / Work experience. The facilities available to conduct these activities include making soft toys, puppets, embroidered handkerchiefs, crochet work and paper bags, etc. The students undertake social meets and community work on off days and holidays - details, however are not given.

The question bank was developed jointly by faculty members of all teacher education institutions in Mumbai and its items are based on three lower objectives, viz., knowledge, understanding and application. AIKC - COE faculty would do well to develop items on higher objectives, viz, analysis, synthesis and evaluation in all courses and enrich the question bank for use by students.

The institution has 15 computers with Pentium IV processor. Of these, 10 are in the computer room and the rest, one each in the Principal's office, the Vice Chairman's office, the administrative office, the library and the computer teacher's room. The computers in the lab are on LAN arrangement and have a cable internet connection. Windows 2000, MS Office 2000, Page Maker, Adobe Photoshop 7 version, Tally, Urdu Inpage and Corel Draw 10 are the software available in the computer lab. Students other than those who opt for computer education attend computer literacy classes twice a week. Almost all students are able to use computer as a teaching learning resource. This is indeed positive in terms of teacher competencies.

Criterion 5: Student Support and Progression
The drop out rate during the last three years has fluctuated between 0% (2002 - 03) and 4% (2001 - 2002). The institution does not maintain any database on progression of its students to further studies or employment. The college being a UG college, its students do not appear in the UGC NET or SET at all. Feedback from students is obtained informally and entirely orally. Consequently, it cannot be systematically used for programme improvement. The institution should publish its prospectus annually and make it more comprehensive in terms of its contents. The institution does not have a counseling cell; however necessary counseling is provided by the faculty. The institution may arrange for a short - term intensive training programme to develop guidance and counseling skills of its faculty. The institution has necessary tie - up with the State Govt., to distribute scholarships from State Govt. to its eligible reserve category students. The management of the college also need to establish scholarship fund to help the economically needy students. The college also could think of getting the support and the cooperation of the local benefactors and its wellplaced alumni. It doesn't have a Alumni Association yet. It has a number of leisure / recreational facilities for its students which are quite adequate.

Criterion 6: Organization and Management
As prescribed by the affiliating University, AIKC - COE has a nine member Local Managing Committee (LMC). It is formed with a view to provide and ensure efficient management of administrative, financial and academic functions and for monitoring institutional activities. In order to improve institutional performance, the institution has computerized its office work, timetable and students' record. The Principal monitors the work of the non - teaching staff. The institutional academic calendar is developed by the Principal and the faculty. The work is divided under different portfolios and teacher in charge carries out all the activities under the guidance of the principal. Formal inputs generated through session - end review meeting (s) would be helpful in reflecting institutional mission and goals through its academic calendar and providing systematic time - schedule for transaction of theory and practicum components of the B.Ed. programme. Faculty recruitment is done according to the procedure laid down by the State Govt.; vide their resolution No. NGC - 1298/14619 / UNI 4 dated 11th December 1999 which prescribes qualifications prescribed by NCTE norms. The institution has made an attempt to computerize the functions of the college, viz, administration, library. The institution has encouraged some members of its non - teaching staff to develop their IT - related skills to use computer for their work and enable some class IV employee to handle various technical equipment. Till the session 2002 - 03, 50% of the enrolled candidates were allotted to AIKC - COE by the University of Mumbai and the rest were taken through the management quota. The total fees charged from free seats candidates till 2002 - 03 were Rs.10,600 and from payment seats candidates Rs. 25,600. For session 2003 - 04, all seats in AIKC - COE have a uniform fee structure of Rs.30,000/-, which is yet to be approved by the University and the management of AIKC - COE.

The institution has an internal audit mechanism for ensuring fiscal discipline and propriety. AIKC - COE does not have a formal grievance redressal cell. However, whenever necessary, grievances are taken care of informally by the Principal and this have proved quite effective. The institution has not created mandatory funds viz; endowment fund of Rs. 5 lac and reserve fund of Rs. 3 lac as prescribed by NCTE. It has reserve funds of Rs.1,37,699/- only. It should now create these funds. The institution is yet to put in place mechanisms and processes for internal quality check and create a people - driven movement for achieving TQM.

AIKC - COE students are exposed to community work through occasional visits to an old age home and an orphanage. However these community-college linkage can be better developed if provided on a regular basis as part of extension / outreach activity.

The college uses the self-appraisal form for teachers. However its format may be changed to that of a self-appraisal form. During the current session, AIKC - COE has introduced a questionnaire / proforma for teacher appraisal by its students.

AIKC - COE needs to develop collaboration with SCERT / NCERT; these will enhance the quality of teaching and be critical in initiating research activities.

Section III: Overall Analysis & Suggestions for Further Improvement
The peer team appreciates the mission and goals of All India Khilafat Committee through its educational endeavour viz., promoting secularism, national integration, communal harmony and a pride in being an Indian. AIKC - COE is trying to attain these goals. The institution is indeed fortunate that eminent Indians like Dr. Rafiq Zakaria, Dr. M. A. Aziz and Mr. I. M. Qadri who continue the traditions established by the Ali brothers, Gandhiji and Nehru are members of its Governing Body and promote liberalism and open mindedness. The institution, thus, has a destiny to realize through attainment of its mission and goals. The peer team is convinced that quality improvement in teacher education programme needs constant endeavour, monitoring and readiness to provide necessary inputs to make the programme more effective. The following suggestions for quality improvement of AIKC - COE programme provide a road-map for the institution to carve out a place for itself as a premiere teacher education institution in this metropolis and the state of Maharashtra.

AIKC - COE would do well to ask itself questions like 'How far are being successful and what additional inputs need to be provided and in what manner? During the next few years, AIKC - COE would have the satisfaction of having attained their mission and goals and preparing teachers steeped in the Khilafat philosophy;

AIKC - COE needs to make their practice teaching schools partners and collaborators in their programme especially the practice teaching programme. It may organize one or two day in-service teacher education programme in the schools and also invite the school principals to join its admission interviews and meetings for planning practice teaching. These initiatives would benefit both AIKC - COE programme as well as the schools;

Tutorials are recognized all over the world as an effective strategy for promoting individualized instruction and enabling students to pursue their academic interests at depth. AIKC - COE may examine how best tutorials can be made a session - long feature of its programme instead of the present practice of using them for preparing students for terminal tests and annual examinations.

Optimal utilization of space is another area that requires the attention of AIKC - COE management. For example, Psycho lab seems to be in a make shift arrangement; it needs to be properly accommodated. Like wise ET lab, methods lab and teaching aids need appropriate, accommodation. These measures would ensure proper use of the support facilities.

Self appraisal by faculty and appraisal of faculty performance by students are effective inputs for quality improvement of educational programmes. AIKC - COE would do well to procure this feedback and use it in a planned manner for achieving quality improvement.

Library resources and their optimal use by students and faculty is often considered to be a reliable index of the learning-oriented environment in an educational institution. AIKC - COE would do well to enrich its library resources especially the reference section and buy fresh stock of recently published English books in India. Teacher education is now experiencing Minds of change all over the world. It is through updated library stock only that the faculty and the students can become aware of the latest trends and priority areas in teacher education.

Alumni can be effective brand ambassadors for raising awareness about the laudable work being done by AIKC - COE. The institution may set up an Alumni Association on priority, develop its constitution and get it registered. Prominent alumni could be persuaded to facilitate placement of AIKC - COE students; they could also join fund-raising campaigns for future development of AIKC - COE.

AIKC - COE may develop curriculum on Special Fields of Education under Paper IV which could be its distinct contribution to the B. Ed. programme. A course like 'Muslim contribution to Indian Education' and 'Basic Education and its Relevance in Contemporary India' could be two possible areas for it to work-in.

The institution is indeed on strong wicket in terms of its liberal-minded and supportive management, a committed Principal full of concern for its students and an energetic and dedicated faculty. The peer team is hopeful that AIKC - COE will become truly functional for attainment of its mission and play its unique role in teacher education if it undertakes quality improvement of its programme and further expansion of its activities and programmes in a planned manner. The institution has already identified two additional faculty members through proper advertisement who would shortly join the faculty. This would surely accelerate the development of institutional programmes.

The Institution has already planned to organize a research seminar leading to a research project during the next session. This augurs well for quality improvement of AIKC - COE. The peer team wishes AIKC - COE the very best of luck in realizing its destiny in the near future.

In the end the peer team would like to place on record its appreciation for the ready cooperation extended to it by the Principal, the Management, the faculty, support staff and others.
