  17. 17. 16 | P a g e Reflection Aim of institution: The Institute aims at giving best to their students for future life. It provides students with energies and goals of society and how to solve them. The students should know his aim of professionalism Admission Process: The process is separated by maladjustment. It gives students to choose college according to their facility. Numbers of time students do not come to college as they get frightened. Students from rural areas come to the urban and settle for education. Reservation Quota: Students from SC, St, and OBC, NT, OPEN are given concession in their studies. Scholarships are provided to refund the students who are poor. Efforts are made by college to get maximum benefits to the students. Admission Problem: Admission process is taken a long time. Students have to give entrance exam on that basis only they are given admission. Some late admission of students makes them unknown to the college. Teaching and Non -Teaching Staff: Teachers are appointed as One Principal, Seven Teachers, One Library, One Clerk, Peons are appointed for the institutions. Student- Teacher Problems: The behaviour and attitude of students make problems for him and other. Marriage, death, children’s, family problems, financial matters come cross both to students and teacher
  18. 18. 17 | P a g e Majority of the students being from rural background and it is easy for them to get rural experiences and also to know about their environment while transacting with the learning experience But the urban students may not have access to these natural experiences. Here ICT plays an important role. So it requires the student teacher to have knowledge of ICT during the course and also must know how to integrate this while providing learning experience to the children Personal view It is seen that D.T.ed students and teacher are hard working and are far more disciplined as they are taught for the same form roots and basics of teachings. They are focused on active teaching in class environment, since they are in practise to Primary and middle school teaching they work more efficiently to understand the problems and effectiveness of teaching. All round development of students is done through the process and activities, craft, Physical Education drill,Drawing are taken well in class. Use of Charts, cards, are more helpful and create learning abilities in students Drill of listening, reading, patriotic songs, poems, story are taken to refresh the students which inculcate values among students. There is perfection in maintaining records, projects, activities, marks sheets, attendance, muster etc.Students of D.T.ed. are very well at repeating the actions while teaching. They can repeat sentences without losing any their spontaneity. Activities help students to enjoy the class teaching. Theories; lessons are very well planned for Primary students in school. Suggestion Identify the current trends in teaching in the nature of classroom transactions in these colleges Gain a better understanding of the opinions and needs of education process.
  19. 19. 18 | P a g e All the curriculum planning must be based on the practical aspects of teaching. Obtain ideas for effective programme implementation Physical and human resources should be adequate in college. Use of Psychological experimentation laboratories to be implemented in the process. Conclusion From the above all we can conclude that there is a lot of work hard, patience, dedication required for teaching in students. It is also important to acquaint them with new trends and core values of lives. Above all factors make a provision for a good teaching and good society.
