DEPARTMENT OF BASIC SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES
Induction programme – I year students
An induction program was organized by the department of Basic Sciences and Humanities and conducted by the Centre of Life skills and Lifelong Learning on 7th August 2019 from 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm in our college auditorium.
It was well attended by all the first year students. The program began with an introduction by Mrs. Asha, faculty BSH. She introduced all the members of the CLSLL to the students.
Of course, as the name implies, the Life Skills Department is always lively with zeal and enthusiasm in training our students and preparing them for the bright future.
Prof Gangadhara Murthy, began the session by emphasizing the importance of life skills and took us on the road of success. He explained clearly how the students will get transformed during their stay in the campus for 4 years which will decide their future. He went on to tell about the future which will be perfect if we use the key of sharpened life skills. His thoughts were precious illustrated through a video for the students to get the right idea about the program.
It was our pleasure to have our HOD Dr. Sowmya Narayanan with us on that day. She gave us an overall view of the program and explained how significant the skills are and how they will help us in different life’s situations. It was very informative and motivating. Her experience and leadership is the foundation of the CLSLL.
Prof Murthy again came up and conducted a quiz and involved many students who answered enthusiastically.
Then Prof Ramesh pitched in and spoke about the training programme at length, mainly concentrated how one can improve his communication skills without giving up. He set an example by speaking with zeal and enthusiasm. Conducted a group activity involving many students and made them become aware of the teaching methods in the class room.
Prof Suneetha, came up with a lot of ideas and illustrations to help the students understand the approach of education in life skills. She shared her industry experience and highlighted the campus interviews and the industry expectations. It was very useful session for the beginners to listen to a well experienced person like her who has been the bridge for the campus and the industry.
Prof Devranjan Chatterjee from his part, made the students understand how a typical class will be by asking many open questions to the students and encouraging them to answer. With his experience with the senior students, he brought out his points in an understandable way. His talk was very practical, precise and concise. He brought out some clear understanding of innovative ideas, creative and critical thinking and the desire to achieve something in life.
Finally there was some recorded feedback screened to let the students know what the stake holders had to say about the training in our college. They shared the impact of the life skills training in their lives and how they could develop the insight to take the responsibility of their life and career to become successful.
The programme came to an end with the vote of thanks by Mrs Asha.
