This course was not exactly what i expected. I hoped it would cover a wide range of specific learning behaviour and challenges, e.g. ODD, but it seemed to just skim the surface of many topics, without really delving deep.

Very relevant for teachers and the increased amount of behaviour management that technology brings to the classroom.

I found the course content relevant to teaching my secondary classes – good reminders of good classroom management. The videos selected were of good quality and relevant; I appreciated the input of Dr Bill Rogers and the emphasis on calmness in the classroom. The other content was also of good quality. Some sites that links directed me to, could not be found.

Very relevant; it repeatedly caused me to consider students, both current and past, and their behaviours. It also caused me to reflect in-depth on my own teaching practices.
