  • Manisha really makes the course very relatable to the principles and theories. Her approach of using live examples to demonstrate processes and themes really helps me to digest in a logical way as well as makes this experience fun (which I did not expect). Going into breakout rooms for group activities was good. Trainer's use of iPad to draw diagrams to explain concepts before we did the readings was very helpful. Enabled me to better grasp concepts and answer the practice questions. Trainer was excellent. This was the most engaged I have felt in a course delivered completely online. Her delivery was relaxed and very professional. She seemed very knowledgeable and had a lot of valuable experiences to share as examples.
