Can You Help Me In Selecting My IGNOU Project Guide?
In general, our academic counsellors can act as Project Guides in their respective disciplines. Our help would remain restricted among such persons. However, we have kept the issue of selection of guide open so that the learners can take benefit of that. We are explaining the situation with the help of an example:
Suppose, a teacher of management fulfils all conditions for becoming an IGNOU Project Guide. But, he may not have been involved in academic counselling because he does not have time for that. The openness about the provision of the selection of the guide provides an enabling mechanism to identify such a person as a Project Guide, who may not be our academic counsellor, however, his engagement as Project Guide has to be approved by the School concerned on the basis of his CV.
