Kritika found the Leadership course exceeding her expectations. The course students engaged in authentic online dialogue that brought a variety of real life perspective and experience forward. Kritika tells us she found course contents useful: “One valuable experience I learned is that in addition to making big decisions, leadership is about taking tiny steps of initiative and empowerment.” Kritika says she has been able to take course lessons to practice in her daily routine: “At work, I try to recall my learnings before taking decisions. I try to reflect on different possibilities based on what I´ve learned.”
Kritika was content with the way the Xamk OUAS online course was organized:
“I was really happy with the structured course timeline, material and also professor who was always there to support. I had a wonderful learning experience.” The course she took included group discussion, group memos, review sessions on other groups’ work and individual thought process assignments.’
