analysis

At first, respective departmental teachers discuss among themselves regarding the number of guest teacher requirement and which portion/part of the subject will be taught individually, and accordingly routine serves to the students and classes are held as per routine. If syllabus is changed, then teachers together sit for discussion and take necessary actions by redistributing the module for smooth teaching.

A separate network centre was set up for the students only inside the College campus, from where students can get the online services for their registration, examination, and review etc. form fill purposes. In addition to this, public address systems were introduced in some classes for easy listening. Use of LCD machine is increased for visual presentation to the students for their better understanding. Kalna College has it’s an own website i.e. www.kalnacollege.in on which all kinds of information regarding admission, registration, examination, NCC and Games & Sports etc. in form of notice are uploaded, by which students are intimated through new technology.

Prior to the publication of H.S. examination result, our Admission Committee calls a meeting to decide the several strategic points for online admission under UG (Hons. & General) and B. Ed. Courses separately. Accordingly students of this area can apply for admission to the college from any corner of this locality in due time by making payment through online SB Collect. And from the first date the important dates viz. merit list generation, date of counselling cum admission, date of starting classes etc. are announced on the college website. Subject wise and intake capacity wise merit listed candidates are admitted in a smooth way.

To introduce the new subject under UG general course Teachers’ Council proposed that Sociology may be such subject. Considering the demand and spirit of the Teachers’ Council, IQAC, Kalna College decided to introduce Sociology as one of the General subjects in UG course (Arts faculty) and accordinglyplaced a proposal to the Governing Body, Kalna College for approval. G.B. in its meeting agreed with the proposal and decided to move HED. As such College office filled in form and submitted the same along with requisite fees and documents. But due to the shortage of time Higher Education Council could not inspect the college in time and deferred.

IQAC, Kalna College encourages the departments of the College to organise seminar/workshop on contemporary relevant topic. Generallydepartments respond to the call of IQAC. Date, Topic and Speakers are selected in the departmental committee meeting.

College generally took the remedial classes for slow learner students. But this year, IQAC planned to arrange the UGC sponsored remedial classes for SC/ST/OBC (non-creamy layer) and Minority students in lean session of the academic year. Total 527 students belong to these communities were benefitted under this scheme. A special Routine beyond the normal class hours of the college were served to the students and teachers who were engaged in this remedial coaching system. As per provision of this scheme, a few non-teaching staff were deputed for official works.

For generating academic excellence, IQAC and Research Committee of the college always encourage the teachers to participate in active research work. At the same time, in order to build up the research environment in the college, Principal himself and IQAC of the college always insist the teachers to apply for Minor Research Project (MRP). On account of this constant effort a few teachers were received UGC-MRP grant in the last year. This is also reflected by the publication of Research Paper of the college.

Collection of Feedback and its analysis and action taken process is a self-development method.Every year it is collected from the outgoing students and other stakeholders. A prescribed form is given to each student. They fill the columns of feedback forms and submit the same with sealed envelope to the HOD of the respective departments. Later the same is opened by the principal. Collected feedback forms are analysed and average remarks are shown on the college website and specific remarks against any teacher is conveyed for rectification/modification.

(Maximum 500 words)

Education is equipping knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, habits, and attitudes with the learning experiences. Our college education system consists of Principal, Teaching staff, Non-teaching staff, Students and other educational professionals working together to enrich and enhance those qualities. Educational management is a goal oriented activities by planning, organizing, implementation, review, evaluation and integration of the professionals who are working in the educational eco-system. A management information system is actually a set of interrelated components that collect, manipulate, store and disseminate data and information and provide feedback to meet the institution’s objective. It is actually the educational-technology branch of an education system conceptualizes and develops Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education, integrating it with curriculum frameworks, staff development and management. Recently the focus of educational technology has shifted to online and web-based applications, learning portals, flipped classrooms and a variety of social networks for teaching and learning. Nowadays it encompasses several domains including collaborative learning, linear learning, online-portal learning and mobile-learning.

The Governing Body plays a pivotal role in framing the strategies pertainingto the various aspects of the college administration, academic and general development. Principal as secretary of the Governing Body, in liaison with IQAC, Teacher’s Council and finance committee, further formulates the working principle for the smooth functioning of the college. Governing Body is the apex administrative Body of the college and principal is responsible for implementing the resolutions adopted by the Governing Body. Teacher’s Council, a statutory body of the college holds meetings to discuss all academic and related developmental issues. IQAC is instrumental in maintaining and enhancing the quality in education and recommends necessary suggestion for all round growth.

There are three different campuses in Kalna College having total built up area of 9,653 sq. m. contains classroom, toilets, and laboratory, hostels, YOGA shed, girls’ toilet, canteen, cycle shed and a small pond.There are 36,343 books and 6 journals in the library, 6 LCD machine, 7 classroom with public address system and 7-8 department having internet facility and one browsing centre for technical support to the students and others. In first year, students are admitted only through online form fill up by payment through bank extension counter at college campus. An accounting software is partially used due to insufficient number of computer skilled staff. Students’ notices are regularly circulated through college website and all academic and administrative printing texts are prepared and sent by computer and internet respectively. Software is also used for preparing the Teaching and Non-teaching staff salary and maintenance of their PF account. College library is under the process of automation and will be completed within 2-3 years. As a whole, college is currently not using any Management Information System software, but partially uses ICT in several areas for better management.


Part-B

Criterion I–CurricularAspects

1.1 Curriculum Planning and Implementation

1.1.1 Institution has the mechanism for well-planned curriculum delivery and documentation. Explain in 500 words

Kalna College was set up in the year 1943, when India’s struggle for independence was gaining its momentum and the people of the country were trying hard to break the shackles of ignorance, superstitions and barren social customs. At this opportune moment of history Kalna College started its journey with a beacon light of awakening and knowledge. The goal of the College is to impart quality education and disseminate diverse knowledge among thousands of learners of an agrarian and comparatively thriving region of Kalna Subdivision and its adjoining areas. The motto embodied in its emblem is “GyanatParatarang Na Hi”, i.e., There is nothing greater than knowledge. The College which started with only 46 students at a rented building has at present nearly 6500 students in its different departments including B.Ed. section.

In the beginning the College was affiliated to the University of Calcutta. Then after the establishment of the University of Burdwan, its affiliation was shifted to the newly established University of Burdwan in the year 1962. And since then it has naturally been following the curriculum prepared by the parent University. Some senior teachers of the College are members of the Board of Studies. They present their valuable opinion and give important suggestions during the framing of the curriculum. When a new syllabus is introduced, the University organizes workshops where the various aspects of the syllabus as well as the modus operandi are discussed. The Board of Studies held several meetings to frame the guidelines of the new curriculum. Subject wise workshops were held in the University and at several colleges to discuss the modalities regarding the effective delivery of the curriculum. Many teachers of our College participated in those workshops and gave their opinion on the basis of which some items were incorporated in the syllabus and some were excluded from it and some were modified.

For the effective handling of the curriculum the teachers of our College attend Orientation Programmes and Refreshers Courses, Winter & Summer Schools and present papers at the parent University and sometimes at other Universities. They participate in National and International Seminars and workshops to equip themselves for effective teaching. Before the commencement of a new session the College takes necessary steps to provide sufficient faculty to ensure fruitful implementation of the curriculum. Each Department organizes departmental discussions to break up the syllabus into several modules and assigns definite portions to different faculties. The Departments which have shortage of faculty place requisition to the Principal for recruiting Full time/Part time/Guest Lecturers. Accordingly required member of faculties are appointed for effective completion of the curriculum in time. The syllabus prepared by the University has sufficient scope for academic flexibility with an inter-disciplinary approach. This course pattern obviously ensures the desired balance between the theoretical and vocational aspects of learning. Each of the above mentioned courses offers a wide range of subjects enabling the learners to select their options according to their knack and ability. The artificial boundary between the different streams has thus been demolished. The Academic sub-committee of the college prepares the academic calendar well ahead of the new session. The Routine sub- committee comprising members from each of the streams prepares the class routine keeping in view the number of working days and the availability of classrooms. In the class routine theoretical and practical classes are so arranged as to give students enough scope for creative thinking and profitable learning. Tutorial classes are held regularly to give the learners the first-hand knowledge of tackling difficult situations in the examination. Remedial classes are held to deliver the curriculum effectively to the slow learners and to those coming from backward communities.

There are specific policies regarding utilization and maintenance of physical, academic and support facilities. The main objective behind utilization of all such resources is to fulfil the academic needs of the institution. On the basis of the needs and demands expressed by the teachers and the students, Equipment for the laboratories, books for the library, teaching aids for the classrooms, computer items and sports materials are purchased and maintained by utilizing various government grants and the college fund. Various committees and sub-committees of the college take the responsibility to ensure the proper utilization of funds in this respect.

The physical facilities are provided by the college to satisfy the needs of the students as well as the staff members. These include common rooms, drinking water, toilets, electric light, fans, canteen, bicycle stand, substitute electric supply, e.g., generator, etc. In all the cases feedback from the students are given importance and decisions are taken accordingly to upgrade the quality of service.

The academic and support facilities are provided as per the requirements of the students and the teachers. These include classrooms, laboratory equipment, teaching aids, library facilities, computers, internet etc. The rules and regulations of the academic and funding authorities play the guiding role in purchasing and utilizing these resources. For example, purchase of laboratory equipment and textbooks is connected with the university curricula and academic programmes. Financial matters are guided by the rules and regulations of the funding authorities like the University Grants Commission and the State Government. In case of purchase of books for the B.Ed. section, guidelines of the NCTE are followed. Besides, the advice and suggestions given by various visiting teams from the UGC, the State Government and the parent university play important role in formulating policies for maintaining and utilizing all these facilities.

For sports related issues, suggestions from the concerned department of physical education and the Kalna College wings of N.C.C. are given importance.

For installation and maintenance of IT infrastructure, the college engages the concerned staff members as well as outside competent agencies as and when required.

All purchase related activities are monitored by the Purchase Committee of the college. Documentation regarding purchase of equipment, books and stationeries and utilization of various funds in this respect is done centrally by the college office as well as the concerned departments where possible. Applications of information technology in all such activities have increased substantially in recent years.

The ethos and culture along with education the alumni had from their institution express their philosophy and vision towards life and the world. So considered Kalna College alumni association (S) is a pride of Kalna College (Established 1943).

Kalna College alumni association was established on 23rd January 2004 - A day historic insignificance being the Birth day of the GreatNetaji –‘Subhas Chandra Bose’, a luminary in the firmament of the sky of colonial India. The Ex-students of the College were emotionally enthusiastic to have chosen the day for the patriotic purpose. The meeting was convened by the then Principal, Dr.SatiranjanChakraborty and the constitution was made. The constitution was duly registered in 2006 under West Bengal Society Register Act XXVI of 1961 vide our registration no S/IL/36955 of 2006 -2007.

Kalna College Alumni Association besides imparting training in innovative skills to the alma matter contributes significantly to the development of Kalna College through financial and non-financial means during the last five years. At present 300 hundred alumni have been actively participating in the meeting held in the Association’s own office.

Remedial classes are held to deliver the curriculum effectively to the slow learners.

v Teaching and Learning

Students who join the institution in UG course hail from different backgrounds and from different Boards/Councils and some of them are first generation learners. So such heterogeneous groups have different levels of competence. To assess the competence levels of such students are difficult task but not impossible. To assess the competence levels of students, every department conducts some tests not only in written form always but also in viva voce tests as well according to their choices.After assessing the learning level of students’ especially weaker learner the special orientation lectures are arranged for them. The classes are held at different departments usually in first two or three weeks of commencement of classes. The faculties of different departments provide extra effort to help such slow-learners and help them to clear their doubts. Such efforts boost their cognitive levels and offer them suggestions for improvement of their performance. Especially tutorial classes are also held to improve the knowledge level of learners to the required standard. Generally we help our students to learn for more formative assessment than summative assessment. We ensure those programs which are delivered in such a way that students can take an active role in creating the learning process enjoyable.

v Examination and Evaluation

Continuous internal evaluation of the students and monitoring the academic as well as personal development of each student are the general practice of our institution. Everyday performance of a student is assessed by asking short questions. After completing a few topics of the syllabus, students are given assignments to check their writing skill. Class tests are taken in the form of MCQ, Viva- voce and Practical test. The corrected answer scripts are given back to the students. Suggestions are given for writing better answers. Tentative dates of Test Examination is announced at the time of publication of academic calendar. Teachers also help the students by giving suggestive questions and answers from the question bank to prepare themselves with the pattern of questions for the Final Exams. B.Ed trainees are evaluated continually through the engagement of field survey & field report on child development aspects, present scenario of schools and different programs implemented in the schools through their internship program. Written test, oral test, NRT, CRT and diagnostic and prognostic tests and peer evaluation are frequently conducted.

v Research and Development

Like other general degree colleges, Kalna College has no ample scope of doing research along with under graduate education, due to several hurdles and constraints. In spite of that, college has constituted a research committee to promote and pursue the research work as far as practicable. College IQAC, Teachers’ Council and Principal-in-charge himself encourage the teachers to undertake the research project who are yet to pursue the Ph. D. to register forth with or to insists the Ph. D. awarded teachers to carry out the inter and intra departmental collaborative research work for academic excellence and also for their Career Advancement Scheme (CAS) benefit. IQAC and research committee always asked the principal investigator to submit research progress report. Not only the college always collected the report but also provide full support in terms of infrastructure, financial autonomy, speedy release of fund, essential extra ordinary leave etc., if it is sanctioned by UGC or other sponsoring agency. On account of this vigilant roll of IQAC, the number of publication of research paper has become increased from 9 (2006-2007) to 51 (2014-2015) is worth mentioning.

v Library, ICT and Physical Infrastructure / Instrumentation

There are three campuses in Kalna College namely (1) The Main Campus (3.60 acres) built up area 5,761 sq. m. (2) Staff Quarter Campus including a computer centre (0.30 acres) built up area 648 sq. m. and (3) Hostel and Playground Campus (2.33 acres) built up area 3,244 sq. m. Main building in the main campus is a complex 3-storied building contains office, classroom, toilets, laboratory and central library with its own water supply system. Golden Jubilee Building (2-storied) contains classroom only while B. Ed. Building (3-storied) contains classroom, toilets, and laboratory. Main campus also contains a YOGA shed, girls’ toilet, canteen, cycle shed and a small pond. Whereas other two campuses contain three hostels, nine staff quarters, one small pond and a small playground. There are 36,343 books and 6 journals in the library, 6 LCD machine, 7 classroom with public address system and 7-8 internet browsing centres in the college for technical support to the students and others.

v Human Resource Management

The Governing Body plays a pivotal role in framing the strategies pertainingto the various aspects of the college administration, academic and general development. Principal in close coordination with Governing Body, IQAC and the Teacher’s Council ensures the active implementation of the policies, plans and development framed therein. Teacher’s Council in presence of Principal chalk out the entire teaching–learning and evaluation strategies of a particular year at the beginning of the session. IQAC meet at regular intervals to monitor and implement the quality strategy of the institution. Twenty four different sub committees help in drawing out the plans pertaining to admission, examination, students council constitution, fixing outreach programme of NCC and NSS, Games and sports schedule, preparation of Master routine and Academic calendar etc. There are few supporting staff almost in all these committees for collection and preservation of documents and records. Teachers’ qualities are improved by participating and/or arranging the Refresher Course, Orientation Programme, Academic Seminars and workshops. Similarly, the qualities of non-teaching staff are improved by conducting technical workshops and instrument demonstration.Students union plays an important role by communicating urgent notice for students through social media. They also assist the general students during on line form fill-up process and help the authority by providing feedback and collecting information.

v Industry Interaction / Collaboration

College generally arranged one or two programme with Life Insurance Corporation of India, Kalna Branch Office to enlighten our B. A./B. Com general course students about the scope and opportunity in LIC Agent job. Beside this, college has started to open dialog with Tata Consultancy Services and Industry Institute Partnership Cell of Burdwan University to assist for arranging campus interview from this year but it could not be held due to various reason. Still they gave consent to arrange such in very near future.

v Admission of Students

Kalna collegefollows a transparent and student friendly method in 1st year (Semester) admission in the college. The college has an admission committee comprising of all heads of the department and some non-teaching staff of the college. One of the senior teachers acts as convener of the aforesaid committee. The committeemember follows the university rules and regulations related to the admission and accordingly set up norms for admission in different courses. A student can opt maximum five different honours subject and finally can get admitted in one of the chosen honours subject as per merit list prepared for the admission purpose.

(with in 100 words each)

The College has a mechanism of internal audit system.Basically a Teacher having knowledge of accounts and management is deputed as Bursar of the College. He personally assists the accountant and cashier of the college regarding how to keep different records in different ledgers.There is a provident fund sub -committee in the college, which thoroughly scrutinizes the Provident Fund Account and provides suggestion and opinion to the Accountant of the College from time to time.

Besides this, a parson having background in cost and chattered accounts is recruited by the Governing Body of the college for thorough internal audit of the accounts. The Concerned person has internally audited the Accounts for the year 2014-2015 for both General and B. Ed. Sections and remarked against the personal advances, undistributed provident fund interest and improper expenditure voucher keeping system. Principal-in-charge brings these suggestions and recommendations of internal auditor to the Governing Body for discussion and correction of the existing practises. External auditor is deputed by the Higher Education Dept. (HED), Govt. of West Bengal time to time. College contacts with the External Auditor after getting information from HED and submits the internally audited papers for checking and verification. Principal-in-charge brings all recommendations of the External Auditor to the Governing Body for ratifications and implementation. In this way audit process is completed and submitted to HED.

Resource Mobilization

College has a traditional practice to deposit a portion of the income over the expenditure amount in a fixed deposit account. In this way college has accumulated an amount of rupees 3.30 crores as fixed deposit. From there a large amount of interest is generated. College has two ponds of its own, one of which is situated inside the main campus of the College and the other is outside of the hostel campus. These ponds are yearly leased for earning some revenue. College has also constructed 37 nos. of stalls to prevent the encroachment along a portion of boundary wall and by dint of it a onetime fund of Rs 20, 00,000/- is generated. The same has been saved under fixed deposit scheme which provides an annual interest of Rs 1, 00,000/- approximately. Besides, these stalls generate annual revenue of Rs 40,000 only in the form of rent. A portion of the unused teachers’ quarter has been provided to the WEBEL INFORMATICS for running computer application courses on rents basis. This also generates a fund of Rs 50,000/- Yearly. College also provides its campus for competitive examinations venue, which also generate a fund of Rs 10,000/- only throughout the year as per following details:-

  1. Revenue from lease of 2 ponds : Rs 12,000/-

The College has adopted the future plan for the next academic session

(i) New course Introducin. (ii) Remedial coaching classes for SC, ST, OBC and Minority students (iii) Strengthening ICT (iv) Taking of Students’ Feedback and its analysis (v) Encouragement of teachers for pursuing Minor/Major research project

Introduction of New Course

Introduction of new course in the academic institution is always an important criterion for thedevelopment of teaching-learning process. Accordingly IQAC and Teachers’ Council decided to open Sociology General Course and Education Honours Course from the next academic session. From the students’ end there was also an appeal to start these new courses in the college from the coming session.

Remedial coaching classes: College generally takes the remedial classes for slow learner students. But this year, IQAC planned to arrange the UGC sponsored remedial classes for SC/ST/OBC (non-creamy layer) and Minority students in the lean session of the academic year by preparing a special Routine. To run these classes a few non-teaching staff will be deputed for official works.

Strengthening ICT

With the progress of the modern admission system, ICT facility for the students inside the College campus will be developed for their registration, examination, and review purposes. In addition to this, public address system as well as the use of LCD machine will be increased for visual presentation to the students for their better understanding. Kalna College has it’s an own website i.e. www.kalnacollege.ac.in on which all kinds of information regarding admission, registration, examination, NCC, NSS and Games & Sports etc. in the form of uploaded notice, by which students are intimated through new technology.

Students’ Feedback

The feedback analysis is one of the important part for the strategic development of all Higher Educational Institution. The different stakeholder viz. students, employees, alumni, teachers and guardians are important in all round development of the institution. Feedback will be taken from students on the basis of infrastructure facilities, water, electricity, laboratory, library, canteen and common room and the feedback also taken on the performance of teachers and teaching-learning process. Feedback collected from students will be analysed and the action will be taken accordingly. A different type of feedback will also be collected from employee on the condition of working place, availability of sufficient space, the adequacy/inadequacy of number of employee, condition of canteen and the toilet facility are critically analysed and initiatives will be taken in this regard. The feedback from teachers based on the teaching- learning method, availability of infrastructure (class room) and internet and ICT facility received will be analysed for improving the existing set-up. Feedback received from Alumni on the overall performance of the college and the scope of creation of job opportunity and employability training. College generally takes the initiative in this regard and made contact with different companies for offering campus interview. Feedback taken from students will be analysed and the result will be shown on college website.

Pursuing Major/Minor Research Project

Research in higher education is one of the important way to acquainted with the knowledge of modern theory and practices. Therefore, every teacher in higher education should pursue research and training work for the sake of their own requirement of latest information. Principal and Coordinator, IQAC will convene sensitization meeting/discussion for the teachers to inspire them for applying Major and/or Minor research project to the different sponsoring agency.
