In the contest, the participating teams had to perform a Role Play on various given themes.
‘Role Play’ is an active learning tool for various concepts. In this, the performer gets embedded in the role, feels the role needs and then performs it. It is a spontaneous human interaction involving realistic human behavior under artificial or simulated environment in which the participants are provided with a role brief and a set of circumstances which they need to enact. This is a technique in which some real or imaginary situation involving human interaction is presented and spontaneously acted out by the participants. The purpose of role play in business schools is to increase student interest and involvement, and have its practical application through making choices and receiving feedback on them, and refining their understanding of concepts.
There were four teams from UIM who participated in Role Play. The given themes were ‘Stress Management’, ‘Organizational Change’, ‘Organizational Politics’ and ‘Recruitment’.
The event was competitive in nature. The participating teams were adjudged by the jury on a set of pre-defined criteria. The defined criteria were Students’ Theme Narration, Acting Skills, Theme Presentation, Communication and Coordination during the Role Play.
The winner of the event was the team enacting on the theme of ‘Organizational Politics’. The second-best performance adjudged was by the team which enacted on ‘Change Management.’
