“What an original and creative course! Flavien LanmantchionI appreciate the opportunity and learning the course has brought into me. As teachers we can also make a difference with the classes we teach by saving the planet. ”
“This course is very useful in helping generating ideas between participants. We learn from each other as well as getting the chance to visit a site with example materials. Perhaps the most useful thing I will take away is that I can see it is possible to integrate environmental perspectives more purposefully, and that the opportunities we had to share reflections on this have been very refreshing.”
“If you’re thinking of ‘bringing in topics of sustainability to your teaching‘ and would like to discuss ideas with like-minded colleagues and get feedback, I’d recommend it. It is helping me think through some of my ideas and has added to the motivation for me to finally start writing on this topic here on my blog. ”
“I've really enjoyed being a part of your course.I would also like to express my adoration for your dedication and commitment in helping teachers to integrate ways of protecting the planet. Honestly speaking, your course helped me to create the lesson I had submitted so thank you! ”
“This course is the perfect length to get your teeth into the subject, work with colleagues to generate lots of exciting ideas and create something valuable. The length was key for me. Any longer and I might have got distracted. It ended on a high note with feelings of positivity, motivation and that feeling you get when you know you aren't alone. Other people care about the planet too! ”
“Owain is fab. He was one of my MA students and his work is excellent. He was very early to the climate stuff and his time has come. ”
How long is the course and how many hours a week does it require?

Do I have to log on at a specific time or can I do it when I'm free?
Many of the participants on the course are working throughout the day on varying schedules. The good news is that you can log on at any time you like to access the lessons or post and respond to comments in the discussion. What’s more, the discussion takes place on a platform called Slack, and the great advantage of this is that there is an app so you can engage in the discussion from your phone while on the go without logging in our out, and you receive notification updates of the conversation. I encourage people to log on every day when possible, little and often, however it's natural that some people log on every couple of days when they're busy. If I haven't seen someone for three days, I check in with them and usually they are having a busy period and let me know they can log back in. There is one optional Zoom session which is a nice chance to meet the other participants. It is at a set time at the weekend so more people can attend, and is recorded for those who can't come.
