"Thank you so much for the opportunity to gain knowledge about sustainable development through this course. The module (Inroduction to Development) was very insightful as it gave a good introduction to development giving a strong theoretical background with very detailed academic literature. Although the resources/reading materials were overwhelming given the short time frame, they are quite useful for continuous learning and as reference materials."

"In my point of view, the most valuable and useful aspects of the TISS DM Course are with academic methodology of analysing, contextualising and conceptualising of theories and data. They have been of great benefit in my work on analysing, managing and reporting on complex emergencies. Professional lecturers have been always available for comment and advice."

"Course allowed me to increase my understanding of the basics of the DM and gain the knowledge on the key theoretical concepts as well as existing approaches to the disaster management. I am now well equipped to continue deepening my DM knowledge through the field work and practice."

"The additional reading materials to support the introductions to the module are very useful and contribute significantly to understanding the issues. The topics chosen for each of the module are important especially to people engaged in their everyday lives in disaster management activities. The course was helpful, knowledge gained contributes to ones' career development and empowerment."
