The aim of this activity was to come up with a contemporary issue in the form of HR debate wherein students had to come up with the views either for or against.The topic for the debate was “Technology positively impacts work environment”.

The idea of having two members in a team was that one would be the speaker and other would participate in the rebuttal round and one who participates in rebuttal cannot participate in speaking and vice-versa. This would enhance their team efforts and efficiency as well. After the speakers completed their expression of ideas regarding the topic (For or against) there was a break of 5 minutes to let the pair discuss and warm up for the rebuttal. Till then arrangements were made for the rest 6 to sit in a circle for the discussion. The group was given 15 minutes to discuss and then given a minute to wrap up with their final statement. Finally the winners were declared--- Ajeet Pandey and Jignesh.Overall it was a great learning for the participants and audience as well.
