“This courses were great and allowed me to understand how to better explore faith in the classroom.”
“The advantage of self paced learning and being able to revisit at times has been extremely flexible in our currently busy learning environment- The courses are also particularly relevant to current planning and school improvement actions-eg reviewing the Evangelisation Plan, embracing Student Voice, and calling on all stakeholders to engage in actions.”
“It is a great course to get all school staff involved and how working together to create student agency to make change.”
“I found this a positive way to learn. The videos were reflective and inspiring and it was great to be able to collaborate with other staff members towards a common whole school approach.”
“I recommend these courses to my colleagues who are driving initiatives (ie. in leadership roles) as the content was simple to follow, relatable, and made reference to curriculum documents and resources that we are already using.”
“I would recommend these courses to all teachers, since I was not aware of the scope of my ability to be part of this until I had read the articles and watched the videos. Perhaps others might also be struggling with the thought of where to begin, I would highly recommend them.”
“It was easy to navigate and I really liked the open nature of the reflections/tasks for each unit. It was also very smooth- no technical glitches which is very rare with online learning.”
“It gives staff the opportunity to see the transdisciplinary nature of how our religious education can be embedded in our everyday teaching and learning. Highly recommended.”
“For me it has brought alive an internal dialogue on ecological thinking which I have not really fully engaged in before. In addition it helps bring a clearer focus on evaluation of our current practices (In the library and English Department/curriculum) and helps shape our thought on where to go into the future. Also, there are some excellent resources/links which will be very helpful.”
“Thank you for the most informative and relevant accreditation courses I think I have ever participated in!”
“I enjoyed the ‘session-based’ nature of the courses, this breaks each unit into small chunks of information to engage with (particularly relevant to classroom teachers who are notoriously low on time) and the assessments were considered, achievable and relevant.”
