The course has been very engaging throughout. What I particularly like is the fact it has been offered online as I was able to stop during the sessions, consider the impact to my own practise and also go back if I felt I had missed something. I also like how I can still go back through to different parts to check on references to the researchers discussed. Great course.

very informative and well presented. Online learning really helped my style of learning as I was able to pause or rewind to listen again. Can this also be an option for future courses, I was also able to access this in a comfortable seating position without the awkwardness of dodging heads to view the screen

The sessions really made me think carefully about what we have in place and why we have put such approaches into place. I am going to carry out additional research to try to explain our choices or to support the next choices we make.
