A study on competency mapping scale to map the competencies of university teachers (with special reference to karnataka state)
Competency is a cross-functional integration and coordination of capabilities (Javidan, 1998) in a way to accomplish the respective job effectively and efficiently. Teaching at the university level is not just following a monotonous set of practices. It requires a higher level of pedagogical skills, behavioural control and teaching philosophy apart from the strong subject knowledge. Thus, there is a requirement of a scale to measure competencies of university teaching personnel. This scale will not only help the institutions by providing “Blue print” for the individual’s entire behavioural scope, but also, it will make available a guide for the development of university teaching personnel.
