As a landmark move, University of Delhi has undertaken the process of revising all Under Graduate programmes in the light of UGC’s Learning Outcome-based Framework (UGC-LOCF). After introducing Choice Based Credit System in 2015, the University has initiated the process of revising all its Under-graduate programmes in the light of LOCF. The revised curriculum will be expressed in terms of outcomes related to knowledge, understanding, skill, attitudes and values. It aims to foster quality higher education in academic research, contributing to society.
The revised courses are scheduled to be implemented from the academic session 2019-20. From the academic session 2019-20, all students who join for undergraduate courses registered with Non-Collegiate Women Education Board (NCWEB) and School of Open learning will follow the revised undergraduate curriculum based on LOCF. It is estimated that the revised courses will benefit close to seven lakh undergraduate students who will be seeking admission in 2019; NCWEB, SOL and regular college students will follow the same curriculum.
The process of revision of undergraduate courses began on March 11, 2019 by inviting all Deans and Heads for a detailed consultative meeting. Concerns regarding the proposed schedule were discussed and after deliberations the proposed schedule was approved. Consensus emerged on the need to revise the curriculum without any further delay. Participation of students in the curriculum revision process has also been ensured.
The Under Graduate Curriculum Revision Committee has developed a Dashboard to facilitate the process. Dashboard has been developed to enable concerned teachers to work collectively and to share their inputs simultaneously. Working on the Dashboard will create enough opportunities to interact online, thereby reducing considerably need of frequent meetings of members.
The revision schedule explicitly states different stages of involvement and approval of the revised curriculum from different Statutory bodies of University of Delhi. At a later stage, the entire curriculum will be displayed on the university website to invite feedback from all stakeholders like alumni, teachers, parents and academia. Suggestions from experts at National and International level will also be solicited.
