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)

The 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 semester UG and PG courses for selection of their Honours subjects as well as Generic and 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 will be given by the college throughout the year. Especially for UG students, this year several classes were taken immediately after the admission to explain the course curriculum and semester examination system. 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 mid-semester internal examinations and 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 performances. 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 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/or tutorial classes. In the existing mentoring process College always tries to make an effort to mould the students into a 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
  • Identify their skills

2.5.2 Reforms initiated on Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) system at the institutional level (250 words)

College has taken initiatives on Continous Internal Evaluation(CIE)

  1. At the beginning of the session the teachers provide and explain the contents of the syllabus to the students.
  2. Everyday performance of a student is assessed by asking short questions from the previous day’s lecture.
  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 on the syllabus.
  5. Tutorial classes are held especially for slow learners to clarify their doubts and queries.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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, to search web page to gather relevant information.
  9. Classes are also held in the smart room where teachers can use audio –visual aid and power point to make the lecture more interesting.
  10. 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 mid-semester examinations and 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 extra-curricular activities;

· Pages to note the minute 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 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.

For sports related issues, suggestions from the concerned department of games and physical instruction 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 days.

Alumni are an institution’s Brand Ambassador, carrying those core values of excellence, lifelong learning of inclusiveness and diversity across the world. 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 23 rd January 2004 - A day historic in significance being the Birth day of the Great Netaji –‘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.Satiranjan Chakraborty and the constitution was made. The constitution was duly registered in 2006 under West Bengal Society Registration 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. On the 5th September, the Teachers’ day they auspiciously observed the day and rejoice it in various rejuvenative ways every year. Besides they arrange tree plantation programme, blood donation camp, snake bite awareness programme etc. The association pursues and sustains excellence in the field of education and in search for knowledge by interaction between the alumni the faculty and the present students of the College.

Alumni announce scholarships and awards to the poor and meritorious students on regular basis through a trustee organisation ‘SAHAJAG’ (Government registered) from its own fund. In order to enhance the association fund, the alumni contribute an amount of money themselves and collect money if the situation so demands, as for example in 1993 the alumni contributed the lion share to the construction of the Golden Jubilee Building which was inaugurated by Honourable Higher Education Minister, Prof Satya Sadan Chakrabarty.

During the last five years the activities of the alumni association have been accelerated with participation of some enthusiastic and interested alumni. In 2017-2018 Academic Session alone 177 alumni contributed a sum of Rs 250/- (Two hundred fifty only) each and 26 alumni contributed Rs 500/- (Five hundred only) each and one alumnus contributed Rs. 5000/- only brings a total amount of Rs 62,250/- only is to be added to Rs 50,000/-(fifty thousand only) which has been remaining as fixed deposit in nationalised bank. The alumni are even ready to render financial assistance under any emergent situation. It is worthwhile that the association audited statement of account regularly and accordingly.

The alumni association, Kalna College solicits the participation of more and more alumni of Kalna College. The alumni are indeed playing a vital role by providing sustainability to the parent’ institutions. In 2017-2018 a new committee of the alumni association was constituted. Significantly many of the alumni contributed articles to the ‘platinum jubilee commemoration volume’ and thus enriched it to a great extent. The alumni association of Kalna College is setting a pioneering example in its glorious mission consisting of a numbers of teachers, professors, doctors engineers, scientists, literary figures, social scientists, journalist, minister and social workers the alumni association can help to identify strategic direction for Kalna College in the running 21 st century.

6.4 Financial Management and Resource Mobilization

6.4.1 Institution conducts internal and external financial audits regularly Yes

(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 a parson having cost and chattered accounts background 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 last few years and also the year 2017-2018 for B.Ed and General sections and remarked against the personal advances, undistributed provident fund interest and improper expenditure voucher keeping system. Presently College collects all fees through online and/or offline banking but fails to start the software based accounting system due to the shortage of qualified staff. The Principal brings these suggestions and recommendations of internal auditor to the Governing Body for discussion and correction of the existing practises.

These thoroughly internal audited papers are submitted to the external auditing concern, deputed by the Director of Public Instructions, Higher education Department, Government of West Bengal. This year external auditor is not deputed by the Government even to date. College has already applied for deputing external auditor to the Higher Education Dept. to complete the process.

College has also 37 nos. of stalls of its own to prevent encroaching along a portion of the 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 rent 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 stated below. Moreover, college always tries to invest the fund excess over the expenditure at any nationalized bank.
