College awaits govt nod to start job oriented course

Quote:
When around 650 PU colleges across the state wound up the job oriented courses (JOC) following government's direction, a college in the city has taken special initiative to start the course again on their campus.

Government PU College for Women (GPUCW), Balmatta, is keen on continuing the JOC in Commercial Garment Designing (GCD) on their campus. However, the institute has to await government's nod to start the course.

GPUCW is one of the nine colleges in the district, where JOC was introduced. However, all colleges had to stop the admission process in 2010-11 after the 2009-10 batch completed the training.

In addition to the prescribed curriculum, GPUCW had started a garment manufacture unit, where GCD students manufactured uniforms for students in the college. College principal K Vasudeva Kamath told TOI that they already had sent request to the government through the deputy director of PU education seeking permission to start the course.

Sources in the DDPU education office said the PU Board will take a decision on the application submitted by the college and the college can start the course again once their request was approved by the Board.

As many as 60 teachers, including part time lecturers and worker teachers, were working in nine PU colleges in the district for JOC. While 41 teachers, who have completed more than five years of experience, were absorbed by the government, 12 teachers with less than five years experience were relieved from the service and the remaining were sent back to the PU Board.

Other than GPUCW, JOC was introduced in Government PU Colleges at Sullia and Maninalkuru in the district. Meanwhile, private colleges including Jain PU College, Moodbidri, Vivekananda PU College, Vivekananda Polytechnic, Puttur, SS PU College, Subrahmanya, St Joseph PU College, Bajpe and Syed Madani PU College, Ullal too had the JOC, which was equivalent to PUC

Mangalore: Eco awards for schools preserving environment

Quote:
MANGALORE: The government has plans to distribute parisara prashasti (environment awards) for schools, which work towards the preservation of environment.

Minister for ecology and environment J Krishna Palemar said the award will be bestowed on schools, which give emphasis on co-curricular activities based on environment preservation. He was speaking after interacting with students as part of the `shalegagi navu-neevu' programme organized by the zilla panchayat in association with the department of public instructions at the Dakshina Kannada Zilla Panchayat Higher Primary School, Muchuru, near here on Tuesday.

Awards will be distributed to schools in association with the forest Department. The main objective of distributing award is to make children aware of environment and its protection. Eco clubs in schools should take initiatives to launch awareness programmes on the need for protection of environment, Palemar said.


The government sanctions Rs 3,500 for primary schools and Rs 5,000 for high schools to open eco clubs on its campuses. A total of 7,080 primary schools and 1,800 high schools have already opened eco clubs in the state, Palemar said, adding that initiatives will be taken to open eco clubs in all schools.

Palemar said the government has a proposal of appointing 20,000 more teachers for primary and high schools in the state. Initiatives will be taken for the development of schools with the partnership of private entrepreneurs, he added.

Rs 11 cr for development of 594 schools

Quote:
''A decision was taken in the cabinet meeting on July 8 to allot Rs 10.99 crores to provide basic infrastructural facilities to about 594 schools in the state'', informed Higher Education Minister Dr V S Acharya.

Speaking after inaugurating the new Pre University College in Perdur here on Saturday, he said lack of facilities in these schools were detected during statewide “shalegagi navu-nivu” programme. He said there is no shortage of teachers in schools across the state as there is a ratio of one teacher for 28/29 students maintained across the state. An innovative programme of super memory power is introduced in CET counselling process. At present it is only applied to hotel management, pharmacy, engineering courses and diplomas.

Under this programme the student can have the benefit of choosing the college of his choice, he added.

Stating that the educational precedents should be meticulously designed, Acharya said there should be better teaching environment with high quality teaching programme. A proposal for Rs 15 lakh will be sent to the government demanding a permanent building for Perdur PU College shortly, he added.

Perdur is one among the five areas that have been short listed as new PHCs in the district, he added.

Green cover project in schools

Quote:
MANGALORE: The forest department has plans to launch a novel initiative, maguvigondu mara, shalegondu vana (a tree for a child and a forest for a school), aimed at making schools eco-friendly and to inspire children to be more responsible towards the environment.

Deputy conservator of forest O Palaiah said the department has already identified 40 schools in the district to introduce the programme on a pilot basis. Through the maguvigondu mara project, all students in the school will be given saplings, which they should plant on their premises. Students can choose the plant of their choice by filling the application forms, which will be supplied by the department through schools, he said addressing a Vanamahotsava programme organized by the department in association with the Mangalore City Corporation and the department of public instructions here on Monday.

The department has plans of developing forests in select schools through shalegondu vana programme. Teachers and students will plant saplings in schools, which have sufficient land, he said adding that a total of 12,000 saplings have already been kept ready for the purpose.

While 20 lakh saplings will be planted across the district in 2011-12 under the vanamahotsava programme, the department will also take initiatives to grow four lakh mangrove saplings in nurseries, which will be later planted on 40 hectares of land at various places in the district. A tree park resembling Cubbon Park of Bangalore, will be developed near Pilikula Nisargadhama, Palaiah said.

Demand for ITI courses on the rise

Many opt for diploma when other options becomes unviable
Quote:
Like last year, the counselling for Industrial Training Institutes this year has attracted more number of applicants than the number of seats available indicating that the 16 courses offered by the institutes were very much in demand.

Kadri Hills ITI principal and Nodal Officer for the counselling Balakrishna A. said this year 1,310 applications had been received for admissions to five government-run ITIs in Kadri and Urwa Store in Mangalore taluk; and one each in Bantwal, Puttur, and Belthangady taluks. There were 922 seats in all, he said.

Over 300 applicants and their parents attended a workshop in the Kadri ITI on the first day of counselling on Thursday. A majority of them would be absorbed by the Kadri ITI, which has 400 seats and offers 16 courses.

Many students opted for ITI courses as they were left with no other choice for various reasons.

A resident of the Jalligudde area of the city, Usha said she wanted to be a teacher. After completing her SSLC, she took up a job-oriented course rather than a pre-university course, and was later told that she was not eligible to enrol for degree course. Ms. Usha said she had applied for a computer course at the Urwa Store ITI as it would be “useful”.

Saira Banu did not know that she was supposed to pay the admission fees of Rs. 1,200 and an additional sum of about Rs. 1,300 for uniforms on the same day.

When this correspondent met her, she was rushing to an NGO in Kankanady, which, she said, had financed her schooling.

But for the organisation, “we would have had to take a loan for books and uniforms,” she said. Although Dayanada K. “likes history” and would prefer pursuing degree in arts, he has opted for Computer Operator and Programming Assistant course at the Vittla ITI. The counselling will be over on Saturday.

State plans country’s first paramedical university

Quote:
The State has set in motion to establish the country’s first paramedical university. An informal meeting of a proposed committee was held on Tuesday to formulate guidelines and feasibility of the university.

The committee is to be headed by Dr Devi Shetty of Narayana Hrudayalaya. The Department of Medical Education sent the proposal, along with the names of 14 committee members, to the Chief Minister for approval on Tuesday. The government order for the formulation of the committee, which is a mix of members from the government, academia and industry, is expected soon, department sources said.

Besides the principal secretary of the department of medical education and the secretaries of the departments of health and IT-BT, representatives from the private sector including Infosys founder and former chairman N R Narayana Murthy, Wipro’s Azim Premji, Apollo Hospital founder chairman Dr Pratap Reddy, Dr Naresh Trehan, CMD, Medanta, Fortis Hospital managing director Shivinder Singh and IIIT director Prof S Sadagopan took part.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Dr Devi Shetty said Dr Sudha Rao, former vice-chancellor of the Karnataka State Open University, and Gopalkrishna Gowda, principal secretary to the Department of Medical Education, would draft the regulations for the university. “Everyone is in agreement that such a university is required,” he said.

Responding to the presence of representatives of corporate and private hospitals in the proposed panel, Dr Shetty said: “We are looking at employment opportunities for these people. A majority of the health service providers are in private sector, so they will provide inputs about their requirements. The private hospitals will provide their suggestions on the curriculum,” he said.

He informed that a training programme of the university would be held in various government and private medical colleges and hospitals. The government was keen to start the courses by next year, even though the location of the university was still being worked out. The university would not only cater to 50 streams of paramedical services, but also have courses related to nursing. At present, the nursing as well as paramedical courses are governed by Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences.

Creating Sherlock Holmes

Mangalore institution offers PG course that trains students to become expert investigators
Quote:

With modern technology paving the way for new-wave crimes, their investigation has emerged as a challenge. And what is required is a new breed of investigators and experts having knowledge of both traditional and modern methods of investigation.

School of Social Work, Roshni Nilaya, an autonomous college affiliated to Mangalore University, has introduced a post-graduate course in science stream to produce such experts. It has introduced M.Sc. in Criminology and Forensic Science from 2011-12. It is the first college under the University to introduce the course. In addition to cyber crimes through Internet service, short message service (SMS) on cellphones is now being used to cheat people in many ways. The course has been designed to address such modern crimes also, said B. Ashoka, head of the Department of Criminology and Forensic Science, at the college.

Computer application

The syllabus in the first semester deals with criminal science and administration of justice; police administration and investigation; legal science and criminal law; and computer application in criminology and forensic science.

Economic crimes

Students in the second semester will be taught the science of victimology and correction; forensic science in the justice system; economic crimes of the new age, their prevention and investigation; and minor criminal acts.

Prof. Ashoka said that the science of victimology analysed crimes from the point of view of victims, compensation to be paid for victims and the like.

Toxicology

In the remaining two semesters, students will be familiarised with forensic psychology; scientific aids in the detection of crime; research methods in criminology and forensic science; and technology in security system and vigilance.

In addition, they will be taught forensic cyber crimes, their prevention and detection; forensic medicine and toxicology; forensic analysis of questioned documents or criminalistics.

The course covers practicals, training in handling guns and rifles and the like.

Job opportunities

Prof. Ashoka said that the new breed of crime investigators will have job openings both in the private and government sectors. Police departments, banks, and security and detective agencies are looking for such postgraduates.

Organisations such as Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD), University Grants Commission (UGC) and Ministry of Human Resource Development have kept funds for research activities in criminology.

He said that public service commissions of many States have introduced the criminology subject for competitive examinations to select gazetted probationers of Class I and Class II.

Admission

Admission to the course is open till July 30. Classes will begin from August 1. The maximum intake for the two-year (four-semester) course will be 20 students. Those who have studied science in pre-university and pursued any other degree recognised by universities are eligible for admission. LL.B. graduates, those who have studied psychology, criminology, computer applications in B.A. or B.Sc. and other B.Sc. graduates are also eligible.

According to Prof. Ashoka, the School of Social Work is probably the third education institute in the State to offer the PG course in criminology and forensic science. The course has been introduced at Karnataka University, Dharwad, and Maharaja's College, Mysore.
