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 pertaining to 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.

Like all other Colleges there is an existing mentoring system in the college which has been improved time to time with the changes of the course structure. Mentoring of students in the College starts from the admission in the 1 st year UG courses from the selection of their Honours subjects as well as General subjects. During admission students are advised to follow the college’s prospectus critically, so that they can know the academic, administrative and financial facilities which have rendered by the college throughout the year. Students are also advised to follow the College’s website notice regularly for different on line application process .After admission, students are encouraged to attend their theoretical and practical classes, especially in the first two months, when they are intimated about the name/ names of mentor teachers for their help to study in the College . Students are also encouraged to make the best use of the Library. In some cases mentor teacher along with his mentee goes to the library and instructs the students, how to use library effectively. They are also intimated to check the Academic Calendar, from where, they can know the tentative dates of the Test examinations and other relevant information. In the mentoring process students are not only advised about the intellectual upliftment, but also about their physical fitness, sports and cultural performance. Poor attendance and disinterested students are separately nourished by the respective mentor teachers. Entire mentoring process is executed by undertaking vigorous programme of teaching learning, sports and co-curricular activities in the harmonious ambience within the campus. College also provides an effort in mentoring the students on self reliance, skills in communication, coordination, planning and management, academic writings and presentation skills in different ways. Generally mentor teachers mark their slow learners through the process of routine class deliberation and help them to attend in the remedial and tutorial classes.

  3. After completing a few topics from the syllabus, students are given assignments. This is to check the writing skill of each student.
  4. Projects are prepared by students on selected topics from the syllabus.
  5. Tutorial classes are held especially for slow learners to clarify their doubts and queries. Teachers also give suggestive questions and answers from the previous years’ question papers. This helps the students to prepare themselves with the pattern of questions for the final exams.
  6. 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.
  7. For practical based subjects excursions and field reports are guided by the concerned faculty of the Department. The students are provided with computer labs. They are taught to use internet, search web page and gather relevant information.
  8. Classes are also held in the smart room where teachers use audio –visual aid and power point to make the lecture more interesting.
  9. With the introduction of semester system there is more frequency in the class-tests. The institution has framed a calendar for each semester. Therefore, evaluation is evenly conducted throughout the year.

2.5.3 A cademic calendar prepared and adhered for conduct of Examination and other related matters (250 words)

Kalna College follows an Academic Calendar for the smooth functioning of the institution through timely discharge of its academic and administrative duties. Every year, the calendar is prepared well in advance of the commencement of the academic session (scheduled from July to June of the following year), keeping in mind the calendar of the University of Burdwan as well as the general annual calendar, so that working days and public holidays are distributed at par with all other institutions affiliated to this University. The Academic Calendar contains the following:

· Name & Address of the college, Name of the affiliating university, postal, telephonic, email and web addresses of the institution;

· Space to record the identity details of the student/ faculty member, as applicable;

  • Provision for the college routine;

· Number of teaching days, holidays and working days (specified on a monthly basis), with the sum total of each provided at the end, to depict the schedule for the entire year

  • Dates of Test Examinations

· Holiday list corresponding to the general annual calendar;

· Timetable to record the performance/ participation details of students engaged in NSS/ NCC and other co-curricular activities;

· Pages to note the minutiae of important institutional events.

Before finalising these dates, it is made sure that adequate number of teaching days are available prior to each examination so that the students are provided with sufficient classes to ensure the coverage of the syllabus. Separate attendance registers for both Honours and General students are maintained so that the percentage of their attendance can be calculated on the basis of the number of classes attended against the total number of classes given in a month. In order to adhere to the dates mentioned in the calendar, Teachers’ Council meetings are conducted from time to time to confirm the coverage of the stipulated curriculum before each ensuing examination.

College has a specific policies regarding the 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, cycle 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. For uninterrupted facilities, college always made the agreement of annual maintenance contract (AMC) in some facilities viz. cold & RO drinking water, fire extinguisher, reprography etc.

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, smart classrooms, 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.

Sports related facilities are assessed on the basis of the students’ demand and students’ union’s recommendation and are provided on the basis of games and sports committee’s decision. Physical instructor and NCC ANM of the College take the entire responsibility for preparing the NCC and Games & Sports budget.

For installation, up-gradation and maintenance of IT infrastructure, Teachers’ Council provides the suggestion and college engages the concerned staff and/or vendor to meet up the requirement.

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 days.

All members of the research committee were present in the meeting and studied thoroughly his proposal entitled on, “Swadhinadar Purbe O Pore Paschimbanger Saontalder Artho -Samajik Obasta” for consideration and approval. After threadbare discussion research committee unanimously approved the proposal for submission to the UGC, Eastern Regional Office.

2. In the last year an Incubation Centre in the form of a Career Counselling Cell was established in the college to inform and prepare the students for on and off campus jobs. In order to establish the linkage between Industry and other such organizations a seminar was organized on 14/10/2015.
