Course resources

Hosting seminars in conjunction with the T-Insight courses is completely optional and depends on your requirements and preferences. However, guided group discussions can be a great way to encourage your students and/or staff to discuss the classroom scenarios and related educational concepts and issues in more depth. We offer resources and seminar guides that you can use to facilitate seminars following each T-Insight module that are designed to:

a) Stimulate discussion amongst participants
