This course had engaging videos and the content was accessible (not too much jargon!). Some of the videos were a little old but they were still relevant.

The content was incredibly thorough and wide ranging in focus. The variety of formats such as articles, graphics, Prezis, videos and even cartoons made the content stimulating and memorable. Throughout the course I was repeatedly convicted of the power of inclusive education, the exciting responsibility incumbent upon myself as a teacher and the engaging content presented with care and precision.
