DU continues to gain media attention, this time proposing to teach their literature students how to write Facebook posts.
The university and the committee for the Choice Based Credit System in the English Department wants Facebook posts writing in the course of “academic writing”. They have already asked for feedback from other colleges who offers honors course in literature studies by sending their detailed proposal.
ting does not necessarily mean writing heavyweight non-fiction books or highly dramatised fiction. It also includes writing generic but important content properly such as that for blog posts, cover letters or for that matter Facebook posts,” a senior official of the English department of DU said.
“The proposed components will be part of the Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC). The final framework will be decided after receiving feedback from colleges, the deadline for which is May 1. The approved draft will then be placed before the Academic and Executive Council for the final nod,” she also added.
