SHIMOGA: C.R. Chandrasekhar, Professor of Psychiatry at NIMHANS, Bangalore, said here on Thursday that there should be no difference between teaching by teachers and learning by students if teaching has to be effective.

Inaugurating a UGC-sponsored workshop on "Effective Teaching Techniques and Communication Skills" at the Kamala Nehru College for Women, he said it was necessary for both teachers and students to keep their cool in the present educational phase which was marked by tension.

He said teaching could be effective if students fixed a definite goal for themselves and teachers taught with a sense of dedication.

Dr. Chandrasekhar said the growing suicide tendency among students was because of the lack of self-confidence in them. "It is the responsibility of teachers to see that students develop confidence in them and face the challenges boldly," he said.

The Director of the National Education Society (NES), P. Narayan, said the duties and responsibilities of the educational institutions were not restricted merely to the imparting of education.

They should give greater importance to the development of the over all personality of students, he added.

The college principal, J.L. Padmanabha, presided over the function.

The NES president, D.R. Rathnakar, the Joint Secretary, S.V. Thimmaiah, and the Joint Director of Collegiate Education, Achutkumar, were present.

The Head of the Home Science Department of the college, P.N. Mamata, welcomed the gathering. Satyanarayanaproposed a vote of thanks.
