Extremely good quality, with the exception of low resolution videos (240p is very pixelated – possibly a limitation with TTA website and not the facilitator).

Barbara always finds a way to make any session engaging. The content was precise and informative. I love participating in any of Barbara Stanners' courses as they are engaging and relevant. Although not as fulfilling as her face-to-face sessions, her online learning is just as informative and inspiring.

A lot of content on the rubric and the context; more on the texts would have been beneficial for a first time teacher..

Intertextuality dealt with only on a general level. There is some good information on The Tempest, but not very much on Hag-Seed. The links between the two texts and the ‘conversation’ is looked into only superficially, with only an examination of the opening scene, which is a very small part of the so-called conversation.
