Workshop on Human Values
Date: 13 April 2023
Scholarly debate on human values and character development has been there since the days of Aristotle [Nichomacean Ethics] and Socrates [Meno]. It is through education that young people are prepared for this social inheritance of human values. The duty of preparing well-rounded individuals was a task that was jointly taken up by parents and schools/colleges (and other educational institutions like the Gurukuls, ashrams, etc.), but things have changed drastically in the past few decades. It may be losing its charm.
The Department of Professional Accounting and Finance organized a workshop for the I year B. Com P5 student and commemorated Human Values Day. The workshop was headed by Dr. Nidhi Raj Gupta & Dr. Riya Singh, faculty coordinator for Human Values.
A workshop was conducted, comprising various activities such as offering appreciation cards to celebrate the bond among the peers. Also, a game related to teamwork was played to showcase the importance of teamwork and coordination as vital values and skills to possess in this day and age.
The workshop was a remarkable session for the students as it inculcated a sense of appreciation and gratitude. Observing this day reminds us that our actions and decisions have a profound impact on others, and encourages us to strive for a better future for all.
