“The Importance of Environmental Science Paper Diluted” | Delhi News

New Delhi: Some teachers at the University of Delhi, some of whom are also members of the Executive Council (EC), wrote to Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh expressing their concerns regarding the framework of the national education policy ( NEP) suggested for the environmental science document. They said the suggested framework reduced the importance of the document and had been significantly watered down.
The university sent two alternative executives to the colleges for their comments. As part of the changes under the NEP, DU will introduce a four-year undergraduate program. Within the framework of the four-year program, the program structures are being revised.
Explaining the change, Anupam Sunny, professor of environmental science at Satyawati College, said: “Until now, EVS has been a compulsory assignment, in which some students study in the first semester and others in the second semester. It was a four credit course. Now, according to the framework, it is categorically written that it will be two credit courses. Reducing from four lectures to two lectures will not only dilute the course, but will also reduce the workload, with many ad hoc teachers losing their jobs.
As part of the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) implemented at the university in 2014, environmental science is a mandatory document called the Ability Enhancement Compulsory Course (AECC). Students in each course are required to study the materials during their first year. At Sunny’s middle school, there was a meeting with the principal on the frame on Friday.
Collectively, 12 teachers from all colleges and affiliated with a group of teachers – Academics for Action and Development (AAD) – wrote a letter to the university.
Since the course was introduced, teachers have pointed out that different colleges carry out environmental projects, which was well recognized by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC).
