The IGDCS is a "Life Changer" for me.

Initially I used to find difficulty in log-in, submitting assignment etc. Slowly understood the process and got used to it. Study materials are very informative, specially 'Empathy'- touches me. Once I submit my assignment, as I was told that evaluation will be done in two (2) weeks’ time, I focused on that. Otherwise once you have progressed through the module and assignment, you may not be able to check / remember the pending evaluation unless get an intimation. Sometimes, recapping the backlog makes the procedure lengthy. Online course is very useful, but since it is more practical based so practical classes will add a good value to the course. For overseas students, who have less opportunity to practice especially after Module-6. I felt that to improve and sharpen my skills there should be more information about distance counselling( by e-mail)., that will surely help. The 5 days workshop was very informative, interactive; it will enhance my capability to become a future counsellor. There are many video on counselling, but without practical and on the spot correction, may not be possible to improve the skill. It’s the time to say, “A Big Thank You” Banjara Team- so many names in the list that directly / indirectly helped me in my journey.......... I convey my gratitude, my feeling to one and all. My outlook towards understanding people and appreciating their point of view has changed in last couple of months. The change is for good. It enriched me with new knowledge and skills to help myself and help others. Now I can proudly say, " Team Banjara---- I am part of You.."
