A. Workshops and Conferences
- Organised - International Workshop on Content Writing for the Web: On 6th February, 2016, an International workshop, "Content Writing for the Web", was organised by the Department. The resource persons for the workshop were Dr. Vandana Lunyal, Associate Professor, RIE Chandigarh, and Mr. Naveen Shukla, IT Expert and entrepreneur. The response to the workshop was overwhelming as more than 120 candidates from various institutions of the city participated in the workshop. Ms. Vandana Lunyal emphasised on the linguistic techniques of the content writing. She suggested the names and described the use of various software packages available online to check proper word usage in different semantic context, and gave interesting sample passages to highlight the same. Mr. Naveen Shukla focused more on the presentation, purpose and marketability of content writing. He emphasised that every write-up is read by a particular type of reader, and thus introduced a very interesting classification of the types of readers based on their preference of talking or listening. The audience was spell bound with the animated presentation and his witty replies.
