Subject: [PhysicsTeaching} Suggestions to the UG curriculum committee of UGC
> Dear Friends,
> Hope you know that UGC has formulated a new CBCS pattern to be implemented uniformly in India and the corresponding syllabi of UG programs. (http://www.ugc.ac.in/ugc_notices.aspx?id=1020). Suggestions and critical comments are invited from the academic community, to be sent to the E-mail ID, ugc....@gmail.com. Before April 25th.
> I have typed up a list of suggestions and attached them as a word file and a pdf file. The author's name is not mentioned in the text. You may edit the text according to your own ideas and send it to the above E-mail ID provided by UGC before April 25th. I have not sent the suggestions to UGC. If anyone is willing to start an online discussion and point out the possible errors in my approach, I will get a chance to edit the text. Otherwise, I plan to send it in the preset form after two days.
> There are two major issues involved :
> 1. The major issue as far as science teachers are concerned is that each BSc program is remodeled as triple-main program in the proposed CBCS model. Suggestion 1 has addressed this issue.
> 2. The major issue as far as language teachers are concerned is that the component of common courses is reduced from 10 courses in present BSc curriculum to 2 courses in the proposed CBCS model. Suggestions 2 and 3 have addressed this issue. It is hoped that the present common courses, or their modified versions, can be recast as AECCs and SECs proposed in the CBCS model.
> As in all online memorandums to be submitted to the authorities, the number does matter here also. I suggest that each of us sends a separate E-mail to UGC by copying and pasting (after due editing) this text in the body of the mail or by simply attaching the edited text.
> Kindly forward this mail to your colleagues in other other science disciplines and even in BA and BCom disciplines. They can make due changes in the text and use it as a model to present their suggestions to UGC.
