I found this course a fantastic way of looking at teaching and how it can be improved. Some great ideas about how to encourage students to think and tips to keep them interested.

Allowed for reflection on current practice but provided evidence of benefits of addopting improved practices in a practical manner.

I was engaged for the entire time and plan to implement many of the ideas that Cameron suggested. Today has definately reinvigorated my enthusiasm for teching and provided me with a new midset for 2009.

Found hints very useful. A new way of approaching teaching. ( ie how to think) rather than pure content based. I’m excited to try these techniques.

Practical doable strategies accross the years and subjects.

Very informative. Kelly really got me thinking. I will use a lot of the strategies I have learnt. One small point : open ended questioning ok to visual images great, but was then irritating that the info was not then available after. Made it feel a bit of a meaningless activity although ofcourse you’d adapt it. Idea great !.
