very useful in 7 reviews

The course is very interesting.The example of an elephant for unlearning and relearning really caught my fancy.As all of us know elephants are fascinating to all of us ,irrespective of our age.The content is delivered in an interesting way and the interviews with resource persons are very useful in helping us to get an insight into the methodology to be adopted by us for character building.The content is presented in a logical structure just like any lesson we teach to our students.i am really looking forward to learning something worthwhile by completing this course not only as a teacher ,but also as an individual.
