  • The course was very interesting and most of the lectures related directly to our workplace, so we could easily picture what the lecturer was explaining. It was also useful to have speakers from different areas. In fact we also had visits from an MUT member and from the Council for the teaching profession. The timeframe to prepare for the assignment and exam was also flexible and reasonable.
