The course has challenged my conditioned approach to teaching. I had to review and reflect upon my teaching, making me realise I had been using one theory for a long time. I have changed my approach and I believe my students now have a better experience and their learning has improved. 

This course reawakened my excitement, interest, motivation and enthusiasm for teaching, which had severely waned. Learning about new, unique and novel ways of using technology in teaching, and modelling lessons, was fantastic, something I believe all teachers should do regularly.
