We would like to submit a consolidated report on the above mentioned topic. The first day‘s session began with general greetings followed by the speech given by Smt. xxxxxxxxx on the topic “The Art of Teaching”. This session was quite informative. The methods and techniques to be adopted in the classroom during lecture hours and tips related to the handling of students and classroom situations effectively were taught by the speaker. Around 12.30 pm Sri. xxxxxxxxx gave us a power-point presentation on “Beyond the horizons of classroom” where we learnt the principles of initiative, team work, leadership qualities, co-operation, etc.
Yes, it is quite wordy.
Method and technique are synonyms, so you don’t need both. Similarly, students are the people in the classroom. Why do you need to mention both? Are you talking about situations with students in the hallway as well as in the classroom?
Methods (or techniques) to be adopted during lecture hours is a rather vague thing. It sounds more like the basics of teaching rather than the art of teaching. Tips on handling classroom situations is slightly less vague and does hint that there is some art to it. The phrase “tips and tricks” is often used in this context. It shows there is something special (magical, artful) they are passing on that has been learned through experience.
Your placement of the word effectively leaves room for confusion. Are you now prepared to effectively handle situations, or did he teach effectively?
Try writing this sentence in the active voice. Since you already told us who the speaker is, and that it was an informative session, you don’t need to tell us this was taught by the speaker.
A few notes about your last sentence:
You are missing a comma.
You can delete the word us.
Change on to titled. This is clearly the title of the presentation. The presentation is on the topic (such as in your second sentence), not on the title.
PowerPoint is a proper noun, and should be written as I just did.
Titles should be capitalized except for small words such as the and of. (Beyond the Horizons of the Classroom) I would not end a sentence with “etc.” This is especially true for formal writing. There are various ways around this.
