As a part of the University Outreach Programme, Asst. Prof. Sabiha Alam Choudhury and Neelam Bara from the Department of Psychology and Counselling conducted a one day session during the Faculty Development Programme at Asian Institute of Management and Technology held from 28th January – 4th February 2016.

The theme of the session was “Self-awareness and Student Mentoring”. The training session included both lectures as well as one on one counselling sessions for the faculty members. All the faculty members participated in the programme with great enthusiasm and interest.

Lately, with the introduction of Mentoring System in the Colleges, many college lecturers are facing with challenges that they had never faced before, and they are quite open to learning ways of handling the students emotional problems, techniques of counselling and skills to become a good mentor. This is where the University team has been lending a hand to the Colleges.
