Clear, logical and well-ordered. Aspects of the course were explained clearly and were an effective mix of physical and cerebral. Excellent resources — really helpful.

Some interesting ideas, some were very useful. Some video clips a bit too long. Practical nature good! Loved the first exercise. Would have like more tactile examples (one off things). More on differentiation.

Interesting course – some strong assignments/tasks for classes. The focus would be more on how to differentiate and engage lower ability/gifted students.

Content was really practical and provided not only excellent resources but stimulus and inspiration for the creation of my own activities. I liked that you got us to get up and actually do them.

The addition of how to breakdown and differentiate specific writing tasks would be a useful add in. As would source background on the pedagogy/studies that underpins this work.

I think the first half was better as we discussed more on differentiation but as a new teacher I enjoyed learning about the different activities to incorporate into the classroom.
