"The course was excellent in my opinion - the first two sections in particular. He keeps on top of the latest ideas and research out there and gave instantly transferable ideas for my classroom teaching but also a wider context and strategies to put in a programme to train students to be independent learners. The time just flew by - always a good sign."
