The course content was relevant and there was some very useful and informative ideas and information about 2E learners.
It also gave some links to where you can find more information about 2E learners and other organisations that support 2E learners.

The course was relevant and informative. It offered insight into the challenges faced by 2E students in every day classroom life. It also provided simple and effective strategies we can use to support these students as well as factors to consider when delivering teaching and learning activities.

The course was effective in answering some of the very relevant questions teachers have about how twice exceptional students feel and the challenges they face in every day school life. Information communicated about the parents of 2E children and the feelings and challenges they face gave me a very real understanding of what life can be like for them both at school and at home. This is important when considering how 2E children can be supported in the classroom.

many of the visuals were hard to see/read. Unclear. I feel as a special eduction teacher, there was no really new information to add to what we have already known for a long time, so perhaps this course is not relevant for special educators.
