Daulat Ram College (originally established in 1960 as ‘Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College’) was founded on August 10, 1960, as a part of the University of Delhi. At that time, its sole objective was to provide access to higher education to women hailing from traditionally underserved backgrounds. It began with pre-university classes in arts, science and commerce, but quickly expanded to include programs in humanities and social sciences.
Its first Principal was Mr Sachidanand, who helmed the institute between 1960-1962. The college was officially recognized by the University of Delhi in 1962 and started offering undergraduate courses in all major streams. By 1966, it had become a Post Graduation college and soon thereafter became a full-fledged research institution leading to Doctorate Degrees (1966-1967). Notable alumnae include former Member of Parliament, Smt Sushma Swaraj and Union Cabinet Minister, Ms Smriti Irani.
Over the years, Daulat Ram College has become an institution with state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research activities, besides hosting several extracurricular activities for students and faculty alike. It is amongst one of the most sought-after colleges within the University of Delhi because of its academic excellence and reputation for providing quality education to women from all walks of life irrespective of their economic backgrounds
- Maintain a regular schedule: Establish a consistent weekly class schedule and stick to it by having firmly enforced start and stop times for each course or activity. This will provide structure, help build trust between faculty and students, and help establish clear expectations for dedication to the job.
- Develop clear online learning policies: Be sure to include expectations around participation and communication, as well as how assignments will be submitted and graded. These should also address attendance policies for virtual classrooms when grading is conducted with respect to classroom participation. Additionally, include policies about expected speeds of internet connection for optimum performance in the virtual classroom setting.
- Enhance engagement: Break up virtual classes into small, manageable units interspersed with short quizzes or other interactive activities to ensure all participants remain engaged throughout each course session. Video conferencing platform breakout rooms can be utilized during longer sessions to facilitate discussions and collaboration among individuals or working groups who need extended periods together (for presenting projects, analysing case studies, and discussing issues).
- Allow flexibility: To create an optimal learning experience tailored to a diverse student body, maintain flexibility by allowing alterations and accommodations in ways that do not compromise the integrity of recorded assignments or exams. For example, off-site proctored exams may be employed in lieu of traditional on-campus testing requirements due to time zone constraints or financial hardship associated with travel/other related exam costs/structural complications due to international students enrolling from different countries etc). At the same time, measures should be taken for maintaining academic integrity during these tests, such as restricting physical observation access by third-party software application monitoring etc.)
- Support staff & faculty: Faculty members should receive training both on applicable hardware setup processes (e.g., video optimization settings) and appropriate online teaching strategies before online education goes live in order to ensure a seamless transition from traditional classes to digital classrooms. Designated support personnel should also be assigned at critical stages as this would render higher efficiency when rolling out new initiatives for remote/online teaching, particularly at collegiate-level courses dealing with more complicated topics such as research methodology development etc where technical guidance underpinning is expected through prior training of faculty members preparing them technically proficient enough to go live without significant interruption due hurdles encountered at later junctions post training completion period.
