Although the presenter provides heaps of resources, generating some conversations around the texts would have been beneficial. There was too much “teacher-talk”! It would have been better to have schools share what they are doing so we could check where everyone is at.

Enlightening with new syllabus however perhaps consider activities for audience for engagement.

Perhaps more an issue with the syllabus content itself than the course, but quite open ended at times. Would have been good to perhaps note some concrete anchor points of the syllabus and also more techniques and approaches for the classroom.

Garry is an excellent presenter who imparted his extensive knowledge on all modules and courses. The course provided an insight into the rubric for each module and the text selections were varied and provided opportunity to deconstruct concepts thoughtfully.

Course was thorough in terms of covering a range of modules and in rubric analysis. A great selection of texts to use to help make the syllabus easier to understand. More time could be spent on things students need to do in their writing.

While the course is pretty good, it was disappointing that EAL/D was left out despite the name of the course. Overall for TTA, there does not seem to be any courses focussing on EAL/D syllabus content.

Presenter very passionate and eager to share information and resources. Great range of examples. Some modules were rushed over. Perhaps focus less on getting through all modules or run standard and advanced seperately.
