Value Framework
Value Framework for Assessment of Higher Education Institution
Higher Education Institutions function in a dynamic environment. The institutions of higher education are facing many challenges and are undergoing significant changes from time to time. The need to expand the system of higher education, the impact of technology on the educational delivery, the increasing private participation in higher education and the impact of globalization (including liberal cross-border and trans-border educational imperatives), have necessitated such marked changes in the Indian higher education scenario. These changes and the consequent shift in values have been given due consideration while functioning as an higher education institution.
  1. National Development
  2. Fostering Global Competencies among the students
  3. Inculcating the value system
  4. Promoting the use of Technology
  5. Quest for Excellence
Contributing to National Development
Contributing to National Development has always been an implicit goal of a teacher education institution. The teacher education institution has a significant role in human resource development and capacity building of individuals, to cater to the needs of the school students coming from different strata of the society, thereby contributing to the development of the Nation. The institution has taken following steps in this regard:
  1. More access with equity:- The admission process of the course in Bachelor of Education is carried out through competent agency i.e. Department of Higher Education, Government of Maharashtra.
  2. Being a provider of assistance and guidance to academic research the institution is playing its role in the area of identification of research areas and academic programmes.
  3. Community engagement :- A teacher education institution can not remain aloof from the community. An exchange of activities with the community is a continuous process in the curriculum of B. Ed.
Fostering Global Competencies among Students
With liberalization and globalization of economic activities, the need to develop skilled human resources of a high caliber, is imperative. Consequently, the demand for internationally acceptable standards in higher education is evident.  Teacher education is a vital area in this respect as teachers are often called the architects of the future. The role of a teacher education institution is in preparing the students to achieve core competencies, to face the global requirements successfully.
To achieve this, the Institution has established collaborations with network with the primary, secondary and higher secondary schools neighbourhood and has fostered a closer relationship between the “world of skilled work” and the “world of competent-learning”. The department of Extension Services, Practice teaching programme, library week, various cultural and academic activities organized throughout the academic year are means adopted to bring about development of generic skills, development of application skills and development of life skills.
Inculcating a Value System among Students
A teacher is a model of value system. Intelligence without values are of no importance. Hence besides skill development the emphasis here is on inculcating the desirable value systems amongst the students. In a country like India, with cultural pluralities and diversities, it is essential that students imbibe the appropriate values commensurate with social, cultural, economic and environmental realities, at the local, national and universal levels.
The Saturday Mulya  Paripath has been a regular activity at the Institution. The ten core values recommended in the curriculum are best reflected in the academic programmes. Students of a teacher education institution have to complete their practical work not in a laboratory but in actual classroom. Hence it is always a test for the trainee teachers to stand firm by the values that they are inculcated.
Value inculcation through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities has been a regular exercise at a teacher education institution. Values like honesty, truthfulness, righteousness, punctuality, scientific attitude are directly or indirectly imbibed on the minds of the students through various activities like, contests, competitions, celebrations, practice teaching, annual gathering, etc.
Promoting Use of Technology.
Science and Technology have brought in most of the significant developments that one can observe today. Use of modern tools and technological innovations in the teaching – learning and governance of HEIs, have been not only desired but achieved. Technological advancement and innovations in educational transactions are undertaken at this institution, making a visible impact on academic development as well as administration. Technological innovations like LCD, OHPs, are regularly used by the faculties instead of adopting the traditional methods of delivering lectures. The institution is adequately prepared to make use of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT). ICT is also being used for system management. Financial governance is mostly done through e-services.
Quest for Excellence
While contributing to nation-building and skill development of students, the Institution also demonstrates a drive to develop themselves into centres of excellence. The Institution has developed an Internal Quality Assurance Cell to ensure quality.
The Cell has proved benefiting as for identification of the strengths and weaknesses in the teaching and learning processes as carried out by the institution. This has led to removing the shortcomings and marching ahead on the path of success.
The Best Practices like Extension Services Department and Nirantar Paritoshik Yojana are indicators of our quest towards excellence.
