Debate Competition on ‘Innovation through Digital Transformation’

1. Brief details of the Event: MBA Dept., CBSA, under the aegis of IIC has organized an online Debate Competition on “INNOVATION THROUGH DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION”. Communication is the fundamental need for scholars to sustain in the world. A good communication skill plays a major role in developing the overall personality to make a person successful.

Nowadays, students are largely engaged in technology and not getting involved in actual intercommunication. So, this arises the need to motivate students to get involved and participate in debates. Such competitions help them to develop self-expression. The topics for this competition were:

• Online Education: Have we arrived in virtual world?
• Is technology making us less human?
• Digital Payments: Is the future really cashless?

25 students have participated in the competition. There were two rounds in this debate competition. Every participant got the chance to share his/her views either to speak in favour or against the selected topic in the first round which was Opening Presentation Round. Top 6 participants were qualified for the 2nd-cum- final round which was Questioning Round. In this round, participants were allowed to directly challenge each other and pose questions to their opponents. Participants have been evaluated by Judges, Dr. Anuradha, Assistant Professor, and Dr. Sonam, Assistant Professor, MBA Dept. on the basis of Content, Delivery, Reasoning/Criticism, Overall Presentation Style and Query Handling.
