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.

2.3.2 Students mentoring system available in the institution? Give details. (maximum 500 words)

College has a traditional mentoring system 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 1st year UG courses for 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. 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 performing ability. 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 extra-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. In the existing mentoring process College always tries to make an effort to mould the students into talented professional in their respective field of study.

The mentor-mentoring process helps students

  • Know their college
  • Know their subject of interest
  • Know facilities available in their institution
  • To overcome the difficulty in earlier stage in teaching learning

  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.

· 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.

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, 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.

The academic and support facilities are provided as per 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.

For sports related issues, suggestions from the concerned department of games and sports, NSS and NCC of Kalna College 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 days.

Among the different decentralised participative events practised in this institution last year two of which are discussed here as below.

1. Last year, out of these sub-committees, Academic Sub-committee convened a meeting on 27/09/2016 to fill-up the vacant teaching posts due to resignation and retirement during the last few years. This subcommittee critically observed that a number of teaching posts either remain vacant or vacancy caused due to the resignation and/or retirement of some teacher in recent time. Committee in its meeting discussed thoroughly resolved unanimously to fill up these posts immediately. To expedite this decision committee requested the principal to intimate the West Bengal College Service Commission and /or DPI, Govt. of West Bengal for filling up these posts immediately.

· Analysis of syllabus and routine preparation:

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 order to give students enough scope for creative thinking and profitable learning.

v Teaching and Learning

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.

v Examination and Evaluation

Teachers first provide and explain the contents of the syllabus to the students along with the pre assigned schedule of the test examinations at the starting of the session. Everyday performance of a student is assessed by asking short questions from the previous day’s lecture. After completing a few topics from the syllabus, students are given assignments. This is to check the writing skill of each student. Projects are prepared by students on selected topics from the syllabus. Class tests are taken in the form of short as well as descriptive questions. The corrected answer scripts are given back to the students. For practical based subjects excursions and field reports are guided by the concerned faculty of the Department. Mock practical examinations are also conducted for the Honours students. In addition to the above, test examinations are conducted separately for 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students once a year before the subsequent final examinations.

v Research and Development

To pursue research in an UG college is a difficult job, still, the institution encourages the teachers for performing research and helps in attending different seminars and conferences not only in this country but also in abroad. In this academic session 16 teachers have published their papers in different national and international reputed journals. Six teachers have attended the national level seminars and conferences held in India. In addition to this, college offered felicitation to one of its ex-teacher, Dr. Partha Sarathi Mukherjee for receiving Bhatnagar Award in Chemistry. Dr. Mukherjee also delivered a talk on Molecular Flask, research upon which he got the award. Besides this, B. Ed. Department of this College had organised a seminar entitled on “Current Trends in Education-III” and college career counselling cell had also organized two more workshops for the students.
