The CDC Meeting of the College was held on 18th May ‘2018. The meeting started with the reading of the minutes of the earlier meeting.

Matter arisen from minutes.

  • Parent Teacher Meet:

Prin. Sunil Mantri proposed to have third or fourth Saturday as PTA meeting. The year plan should have all the PTA dates and it should be shared with the students. Active involvement of the parents is essential for the college development. The PTA meeting should be recorded for a valuable feedback. The meeting should be  conducted even if one parent is present. Students should be actively involved in the welfare of the institution and they should convince their parents to attend such meetings. The suggestion was unanimously passed.

  • Campus Placement:

Dr. Savita Manchekar informed that campus placement drive conducted effectively but very few students placed through campus placement out of total number of students appeared for the interviews.

 

Prin. Sunil Mantri suggested that proper feedback should be taken from the campus placement schools and colleges regarding their specific reasons for not selecting our students and then doing a proper analysis and interpretation of the same. Appropriate Strategies should be adopted to improve on the factors that colleges and schools have suggested in their valuable feedback.

 

He also suggested of forming students’ committee driven by students only in order to project their expertise. Getting placed in the school is ultimate their goal. Each group has to target one school and approach to the school principal with their own brochures consisting of their qualification, expertise, methods, co-curricular qualifications, skills. This student committee should be properly trained. Sir put forward the  suggestion by saying that students should visit schools and colleges of their locality and try to convince the head of the institute for campus placement.

The suggestion was seconded by Ms. Rajni Kumari, student representative and also added that the placement committee should be driven by students but guided by teachers for effective working of the same. Dr. Savita Manchekar told that the internship schools are the best places for such informal interviews and will help them to know the requisite of the getting through placements successfully.

Prin. Sunil Mantri proposed that training to use smart board should be provided to the students.

Prin. Sunil Mantri gave few suggestions to the teaching faculty for holistic development of the students.

  • Ensuring classroom communication only in English during lectures

Those students who face problem in understanding English to buy a English to regional language dictionary. Every teacher should identify 100- 200 words in every unit of their respective pedagogy and interdisciplinary subjects and prepare a Glossary-Word Bank of these words with Hindi and Marathi translation. It should be displayed in the notice board or display board in the classroom.

 

  • Teacher should prepare their own unit wise notes and keep it in the library for reference.
  • Punctuality should be the key asset of teachers and they should enter the class before scheduled time. No late comers should be allowed in class.
  • More schools to approach for Internship to ensure minimum Proxies for practice teaching. Sir suggested to try GES school in Goregaon for Internship.

 

  • Internship schools should be approached in summer holidays to ensure their preferable timing for sending students for internship
  • To check and plan to have D. Ed. and B.Ed. bell timings properly synchronized to avoid disturbance of consecutive bells.
  • Sabha recommended providing regular lab facilities to students.
