Value Education Cell
Our Vision and Mission
If values are important for society then there has to be a provision for value education. What is value education? In ordinary language the term value education refers to transmission of values, usually from older generation to younger generation. Value education is required by all irrespective of age, sex and social position. Sometimes the members of older generation also need to be taught the values: the values of younger generation. Values change and the new generations may not believe in several values of the older generations. It is in the common interest of both old and young to learn new values and reflect how the new values serve the interests of society better. This calls for promotion of value education.
From common man’s perspective, value education concentrates on topics such as happiness, love, equality, humility, peace, simplicity, cooperation, honesty, unity, etc. It is taught informally in all social situations and is formally included in schools and colleges for children and young adults. Everyday experiences show that education without value education can lead to wrong results. While the education aims at distribution of knowledge and promotion of creativity, the value education aims at facilitating right application of knowledge. Education must be clearly about understanding (what to do?), learning skills (how to do?) and practicing the understanding & skills, leading to fulfillment of human purpose. Understanding of what to do, what is valuable is required and learning how to do is also required. Both are required. Human education must enable the student to (in order of priority):
- Develop Right Understanding By sharing the understanding of what to do (Value Education)
- Develop Right Skills by teaching how to do (Technical Education).
- Practice Right living during the period of education.
- Living in relationship with human being leading to mutual happiness.
- Living in relationship with rest-of-nature leading to mutual prosperity .
Over a period of time, such value-based education can contribute to the development of a humane society. The Cell will contribute, through Value Education, to the world view that is required for a human society.

Brief Report of FDP Level 01
Value Education is the Key to all further Education. The inculcation of values in an individual is imperative for an individual as well as for society. The main forbearers of this education are teachers, who can pass on the torch of values to their students. To equip the Faculty members in the tools of value education, an 8 day long Faculty Development Programme was started under the auspices of AKTU from 10th Jan- 17th Jan. 2018, at Babu Banarasi Das Northern Indian Institute of Technology in which faculty of over 50 affiliated colleges took part. The Inaugural session began with a welcome address delivered by the Head of Department of Humanities & Professional communication, BBDNIIT, Dr. Laxmi Vajpeyi, who is also the convener of the Value Education Cell of the college, welcomed all the participants and made them aware of the goals and objectives of the Programme. She also introduced the dignitaries who had come from IIT Kanpur to address the session. There were following Resource persons:
- Dr. Pankaj Singh, Resource Person
- Mr. Akhilesh Kumar Verma, Facilitator
- Mr. Hitendra Nath Chaubey, Co-facilitator
Advancing inaugural session Dr. V.K.Singh, Director (Engg), BBDNIIT addressed to all Guests and Faculty Members. He welcomed all on the behalf of BBDNIIT family and ensure them for keen support by himself. Dr. Pankaj Singh also spoke on the occasion and he called upon people from the audience who had attended the programme in previous years to share their experiences. Among the participants were Dr. Pooja Singh, Dr. Arti Mishra, Mr. Ravi Gupta and Mr. Ajay Bajpai. They talked about their experiences at the programme and also about how it had helped them to see things in a different perspective. We need value education to inculcate in ourselves and others a sense of how to do things. Today, Technical Education and scientific enquiry have progressed considerably, but there is a tremendous loss of values among people. Skills are not dangerous by themselves, but proper utilisation of skills is necessary for the harmonious development of an individual and society. Value education helps us in understanding life skills needed to lead a harmonious existence. Dr, Pankaj emphasizes the need for the right understanding of the rules of living and the competence to live our life amiably with others. Values are well understood by all 8 days. The last day of FDP all participants were shared their experiences and transformations.

Brief Report of FDP, Level-01 Refresher
Values are guiding principles of life, which are conductive to one’s physical, social and mental health. Inculcation of desirable values is felt necessary through the education and for this purpose teachers, the educational institutions and society in general should be prepared.
