DU Online Exams 2020 : The Delhi University in a letter asked colleges to share details of online classes being conducted by the teachers amid lockdown. The letter didn’t go down well with the teaching body, Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) who said that the teachers won’t be filling the form as they believe that the feedback could be used to draw a positive conclusion for online examinations, a move which the teaching body has already rejected.
The DUTA has written a letter to Delhi University’s Vice-Chancellor asking him to take the letter back. In the letter, DUTA said “We express our utter dismay at the approach taken by the university in the face of the pandemic with respect to conduct of online classes and the forthcoming semester examinations.”
“We wish to point out that the format sent out to the colleges reveals extreme shortsightedness as there is no attempt whatsoever to find out how students and teachers are coping with the abrupt closure of the university due to the pandemic and subsequent lockdown announced by the government,” they added.
The letter also talks about students who are currently in different parts of the country and haven’t been able to attend classes online due to connectivity issues.
“Teachers, in any case, will not fill this information, which we believe could be manipulated to draw convenient conclusions in favor of the conduct of online examinations,” the letter read.
