WIE Group Discussions

Week 1- GD Session (01/08/14)
Turnout – 20 -25 students
Duration -An hour and half
Moderator – Annette Ma’am

Topics Discussed:
1) The wheel is round and round
2) Reservations-Is it time for a change?
3) Do we really need classrooms?
The first session of the weekly program proposed for this academic year saw a huge turnout especially from second years. Lack of fluency in English is a problem faced by most of us. This event will serve as a platform for improving our communication skills. While there is an active Debate Club functioning in college, most students are hesitant to join these meetings as these sessions mostly deal with event like J.A.M which requires a person to be witty, spontaneous and have excellent command over the English language. Most students voted for having more abstract topics to encourage them to think outside the box.
