NSUI Tamil Nadu Chairman Srimaan Ramachandra Raja Proposes Bridge Courses for Universities

New Delhi: With the academic loss caused by Covid-19 in mind, Srimaan Ramachandra Raja, Chairman of the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) Tamil Nadu State, has written to the Director of Higher Education in Tamil Nadu State, demanding the adoption of bridge courses in Tamil Nadu universities. Bridge courses are those that can be used to review concepts and lectures that were presented during the COVID-19 period when sessions were given online.

In the letter, Srimaan Ramachandra Raja remarked that such courses will surely assist students in better understanding the concepts and topics and will help to bridge the learning gap.

“Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown, academic courses have been delivered online for the past two years. For the students, this resulted in a loss of learning and a build-up of ambiguous concepts,” He wrote in the letter dated June 18.

He has also requested that the concepts that will aid students in understanding forthcoming themes and lectures should be clarified using the faculty’s knowledge. This, he claimed, would aid in the adaptability to the stress of offline courses as well as the understanding of fundamental topics.

A copy of the letter was also given to Dr. K. Ponmudy, Tamil Nadu’s Minister of Higher and Technical Education. Srimaan indicated that he will meet with the Director of Higher Education in Chennai next week to address the plan and other issues.
