An Experiential Exploration of Human Values (9-12 March 2023)

A four-day UHV activity-based workshop was organized by VE Cell, AKGEC in coordination with ISABS (Indian Society for Applied Behavioral Science) during 9–12 March 2023 (9 AM – 5 PM), in ME Conference Hall. The workshop was facilitated by Dr. Rashmi Saxena & Dr. Rachna Sharma(ISABS Professionals).Indian Society for Applied Behavioral Science (ISABS) is a national, nonprofit voluntary society of behavioral scientists engaged in applying their knowledge and skill to the well-being of persons, organizations, communities, and the society at large. The workshop was planned by Dr. Gopal Babu, Coordinator, VE Cell, AKGEC under.

The following faculty members (including Prof. V.K. Parashar, Head VE Cell, AKGEC) actively participated in this small group workshop-

FMs from the college FMs from outside
Dr. Upasana Mishra, CSE Mr. Bhanu Pratap Singh, AP, CSJMU Kanpur
Mr. Akhilesh Verma, CSE Dr. Kumar Sambhav, UPID Noida, NCCIP Member
Mr. BN Pandey, CSE Mr. Alok Pandey, KIET Ghaziabad
Dr. Parul Verma, ASH Mr. NK Sharma, IMS  Ghaziabad
Mr. RP Singh, ECE Dr. Vanchna Singh, Self Employed
Dr. Jitendra Chaabra, ECE Mr. Himanshu Kumar Rai (Guest Faculty, DU)

The following were the highlights of the workshop-

  • It was an unstructured workshop, where the experiential learning was in the Centre.
  • The workshop was specifically focused on observing feelings/emotions of the immediate moment (being aware and honest about – Here and Now).
  • Time, Territory and Task were cautiously cared for, disallowing any past reference or future assumptions ie avoiding Then or There), while interacting and dealing with participants and self-planned tasks.
  • The present was emphasized as the best-owned reality one can see.
  • Self-Image was recognized as a big challenge rather main culprit, responsible for the unawareness about feelings and behavioural ambiguities.
  • Availability of feelings, and acknowledging them, facilitates natural expression in behaviour. The same was exercised.
  • Expression has a CHOICE, may be verbal/nonverbal/pictorial/violent/nonviolent. The same was discussed and experienced.

The following were the main observations in the workshop-

  • The process connects with the first step of EXERCISE 1 of UHV, ie seeing the Self by the Self (without any reaction or evaluation).
  • Every moment of awareness about our being was been practiced formally.
  • The process is complementary to developing competence in observing feelings (emotions).
  • The existence (goal) is one similar reality, but the process/mechanism to know/understand the existence is variable.

Extracted Recommendations after the workshop were-

  • Integration of efficient steps (from various processes) may be evolved to suit the human desire of KNOWING/ UNDERSTANDING.
  • Participant’s periodic follow-up (online) is desirable to evaluate the gradual transformation.
  • Frequent such short crisp workshops may be planned, purposely for experiential validation (Steps of Exercise 1 and 2), for intense UHV explorers. This idea was shared with the honorable DG for his kind consideration.
