The students of STIE, led by faculty members Dr.Sheela Phillip and Dr.Cindrella D’Mello had the privilege of attending a two-day virtual workshop for counselors, conducted by the IC3 Institute on 08 & 09 October, 2020 from 4 pm to 6 pm IST. The workshop was a bountiful session hosted by learned panelists from across the world. The objective of the workshop was to bring forth the changing role of the Career Counselor in schools and colleges and to help students navigate Admission Systems in Universities across the globe with insights from experienced counsellors. Live streamed on Zoom, the workshop had participants from different nations interact with the panelists.
The first day of the workshop had panelists discuss various techniques of counselling that would empower students to make the right academic and career choices. The latter half of the session threw light on the admission process in emerging destinations for higher education like Canada, Australia, Hong Kong and The Netherlands. The second day had representatives from prestigious Universities in the U.K. and the U.S share valuable information on the admission process and criteria for each of these institutions. As aspiring teachers and counsellors, we learnt the nuances of guiding students through their academic and career choices and also gained deep insights into the admission processes of various Universities.
Indeed, as the former First Lady of the U.S., Ms.Michelle Obama said, “The benefits of studying abroad are almost endless”.
