Post Course Course Wrap – up (4 weeks)
Our lecturer John McGrath has always wanted to make this course as interactive as possible. In advance of the course commencing the participants are requested to turn on their screens and monitors. The participants will appear on the first monitor. That way John can put a name to the face of each participant. Each participant will follow Johns second monitor. As an extra learning support, we also provide a weekly recording of each class. This is uploaded at 9am the following day. We feel that there may be a time when a participant may not be able to attend a weekly class, and this gives them the opportunity to access the recording and catch up on the missed class. Participants have always found this hugely beneficial.
The lecturer John McGrath also makes himself available to give a tutorial on an additional evening (in general Monday evening from 6pm-6.30pm) to answer any questions that participants may have. You will always have a few participants logging into these tutorials. These tutorials may be assignment related or can be industry related. So, this extra support provided by our lecturer John can be very welcoming and put them at ease.
