PROGRAMMES ORGANIZED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH
The PG Department of English, Payyanur College, Payyanur, arranged a class by Ms Aiswarya Sureshan, Research Scholar, NIT Warangal and an alumna of the Department to celebrate the Teachers’ Day. She handled a session for the students of the Department ( both PG and UG) on the topic “From Anthropocentrism to Ecocentrism : Evolution of Eco Centric World in the Context of Covid 19”.
The session started at 7:30 pm with a welcome speech by Devadathan EV, 3rd DC English student. Nandana Prakash, 3rd DC English student, introduced the resource person.
A pertinent and engaging interactive session followed the lecture. Questions and doubts were raised by Keerthana, Devadathan EV, Devadathan TM, Shivani and Nandana. Ms Meghana from 3rd DC English proposed the vote of thanks.
Over 90 members including the faculty members and students of the department attended the programme.
Technical support was given by Sarang PP and Adithyan MT. Devapriya EV compered the programme.
The whole session was handled by the 3rd DC students of the department.
By arranging a class by an alumna on this Teachers’ Day and by entrusting the students to organise the technical session, the students and former students were given the opportunity for taking the lead role in the teaching-learning process. Such a role reversal would definitely boost the morale of the students and this is what a teacher wants too.
