Soft Skill Training

Centre of Teaching Learning and Development (CTLD) of TMU focuses on growing and enhancing students' skills that evolve them from a student into a professional. To become a ‘Professional’ requires many more things than just academic excellence. To develop such skills, CTLD trainers play a vital role at TMU to ensure they become an asset to the industry.

Goal

To transform TMU students professionally and socially into a highly proficient and socially responsible human being.

Context

In the last two decades, the technological changes have been so fast and abrupt that only creative & innovative organizations will survive. Creativity and innovation is possible when employees work in teams with trust and cooperation using minds’ analytical capability. Hence, in the current competitive environment, only highly competent people with excellent soft skills, including emotional and social skills, are assets, and the rest are liabilities.

The Practice

Development of the following:

Curriculum has been designed to impart these values and skills and have been made part of the syllabi. The courses are offered through a range of exercises such as group discussions, role play and other activities.

  • Soft skills
  • Emotional skills
  • Social skills
  • Analytical skills

Evidence

The University management has created a full-fledged department, which is manned by highly qualified and experienced trainers in their respective specialization. In current scenarios, where data and information are available in a tap onto your mobile screens, what becomes distinctive in a person are soft skills, emotional skills, social skills, and analytical skills. At TMU, CTLD trainers develop these skillsets in every student, thereby making them confident professionals.

The Colleges’ recent placement figures prove that our students are deemed more fit and industry-ready due to their training with CTLD trainers.

Problem Encountered & Resource Required

Problems: Since CTLD courses are value added courses they are not mandatory for any student; hence, the training sessions were taken lightly by students. Therefore, every principal, HOD, coordinator and CTLD trainer had to ensure that the attendance improves to at least 90%.

Resource Required:

  • One big sized dedicated modern training room which could accommodate 60 participants with sufficient space to carry out various activities in which participant movement becomes essential.
  • State of the art ICT facility.
  • An audio and video recording system by which participation of students recorded and replayed for feedback and improvement.

Green Energy

An Education institution is responsible for imbibing the right values in the students. Hence, to teach the students their duty towards their environment, the university absorbed and exhibited those values by becoming a green University. A huge step towards it has been the solar power plant installation across the campus.

Goal

To Implement the Green Campus practice at Teerthanker Mahaveer University.

The Context

Solar energy is the energy present in sunlight. If harnessed by solar panels, it can be converted into electric energy and be used to replace the electricity that runs on coal or water, a rapidly depleting non-renewable source of energy and one that causes severe pollution.

Renewable energy technologies such as wind power and solar photovoltaic devices have achieved significant cost reductions over the last decade and are expected to continue to do so.

The Practice

In India, plenty of sunlight is available, but it all goes to waste. The country should benefit from this, and we should opt for solar energy instead. Though solar energy installation is a considerable investment, it is a permanent solution to the environmental problem. Following this theory, TMU has taken a step further by putting the theory of “GREEN INITIATIVES” into practice. We have an energy requirement of 5Lakh units/month. At a time of such an environmental crisis, we need to adopt such environmentally-conscious approaches and reduce our carbon footprint as much as we can. With its green initiatives, TMU leads by example. With great pride, we have installed the ON GRID solar System of the capacity of 1 Mega Watt, or we can say 1000 KVA, which is capable of producing approx. one lakh units/month. Grids of solar panels have been installed on our campus in various locations on 14 buildings to utilize solar energy. Solar panels cover around 70 % of the terrace area. In an on-grid solar system, solar power is produced only when the grid is available. The power supply gets completely cut- off in case of a grid outage. Hence, one needs to depend on back-ups such as DG sets for emergency power supply. The power shut down happens, mostly in case of safety and technical reasons.

Evidence of Success

The electricity demand has always been ahead of the supply. We have an energy requirement of 5 lakh units/month. By our solar system, we have achieved the production of 1 lakh units/month which saves approx Rs 12 lakh per month and environmentally reduces the amount of pollution which will be produced in the production of 1 lakh units/month. In the future, we are planning to increase our capacity by 550KVA.

Problem Encountered & Resource Required

  • Solar panel installation is in different locations that make it more complicated and required more manpower.
  • Synchronization problem were faced as our current solar system is synchronized with hydel power only, not with generators that result in loss of units when we use the generators.
  • The surface of terraces was not flat as required for solar panel installation.
