The quality of the course was of a very high standard. It was all relevant to what I would like to know moving into this next teaching stage. The “A Toolkit for Teaching Stage 6 PDHPE for the First Time” presented by Danielle Simpson is a worthwhile course to undertake if you are about to teach HSC PDHPE for the first time. The course provided me with a wide range of tools, infromation, learning strategies and assessment tools so that I feel well equipped when entering the classroom and work ahead. Danielle was able to answer the multitude of questions that were put forward to her. I have walked away from today knowing way more infromation than I could have imagined I would be presented with. I would recommend one of Danielle’s workshops to anyone in the same situation as myself.

The day flowed very well, going from giving some resources in the beginning to giving us ideas and then getting us to create some of our own was really effective. Enjoyed the collaborative approach to the end of the day – different perspectives and sporting backgrounds added to the resource ideas.
