Manonmaniam Sundaranar University conducts workshop on career guidance in Tuticorin

The Manonmaniam Sundaranar University conducted a workshop on `Personal effectiveness, healthcare and career guidance,' at V.O.C. College, yesterday, as part of human resource development programme for the youth.

Interacting with students from different colleges, X. Rosary Mary, Director, Department of Youth Welfare at the varsity, stressed upon the need for a paradigm shift from efficiency to effectiveness for overall growth of human beings, especially youth.

"What's the use of a person possessing efficiency in abundance without knowing how to use it effectively," she said, adding that, "effectiveness implies awareness of where one is heading."

Ms. Mary explained the concept of `theme centred interaction' (TCI), a participatory learning method to facilitate personality development.

Resource persons from different walks of life took classes on `career guidance' and `healthcare' during the afternoon session.

Students from 21 colleges affiliated to Manomaniam Sundaranar University attended the workshop. Certificates were distributed at the valedictory.
