Janet was very informative and knowledgeable. Found the PowerPoint a bit hard to see at times and the PowerPoint hard copy are too small. Content was very informative, especially the breaking up of choices and actions. Will definitely implement that.Definitely feel more confident to implement and create visual arts units.

Would like to have a digital copy of the PowerPoint as sections are a bit small to read on the screen. Overall a very useful course.
