Dr. Shankar Ramachandran depicted the importance of communication in day-to-day professional life. He stressed that blocks like deletion can mar the effectiveness of communication. The communicator should be well aware of not only the outcomes but also the consequences of communication. He urged the teachers to be sensitive about the cultural and psychosocial ecology of the learners. Dr. Ramachandran differentiated the concepts of being a ‘successful’ vis-a-vis ‘professional’ teacher.

Therapist, Mrs. Nagaarthi presented an eye-opening power-point presentation that delineated the importance of physical fitness in the life of learners and teachers for which engendering a proper posture is a must. One has to learn and maintain a correct posture while standing, sitting, walking or lying down.
