I think the course has been extremely beneficial. I felt really supported by my tutor and by the Course Co-ordinator. Thiago Veigga: Module 1 


I believe that this course has forced me to look at teaching from a much deeper angle and understand why I do what I do in my classroom and ways to improve and be a better teacher. Jenny McFarlane: Module 2
