|Employer:||Acharya Narendra Dev College, University of Delhi|
|Other roles:||Elected Member to WikiEd's 1st Community Council; Curriculum, syllabus and textbook developer for School Science, Curriculum and syllabi development undergraduate courses, Delhi university; development of elearn materials for University and NCERT|
My name is Savithri Singh . I am the Principal of Acharya Narendra Dev College, an Undergraduate college of the University of Delhi with over 30 years of total teaching experience. I am a trained Botanist, but over time my interests have diversified – issues on women, environment, science education - curriculum, syllabus - and access to education specially concern me. I strongly believe in free access to educational content and in collaborative learning not only among peers but also between a student and a teacher. Probably due to my long association with the Centre for Science Education Communication, University of Delhi, I like to introduce myself as a ‘science educationist’. Besides my adminstrative responsibilities, I spent a lot of time with curriculum and syllabus development at the school and University levels and have developed materials for School Science at both primary and senior levels. I am now busy developing elearning content materials at school and college levels. I have been using the Wikieducator for collaborative development of materials in a project involving IGNOU, INBAR, COL, CIBART and ANDC.
I love listening to music – old Hindi film songs of Mukesh are my favourite.
My current passion is to encourage research by faculty and promote workshops for and experiment-based research projects by undergraduate students’ []. I would like to ensure that students get opportunities to work with the best of tools available thus gaining valuable hands-on experience. My vision is to make my college be identified as a Centre for excellence in research in the sciences.
