What was best about the course?
The combination of theory and practical exercises. There is no one 'right way' to modify text, so it was good to be able to try out ideas and get feedback and suggestions from the tutor. The course material was really good and getting feedback from the tutor was really helpful and encouraging.

What, if anything, could have been improved?
n/a

Any other comments regarding the course?
I really enjoyed the course - it made me think about all sorts of situations where some people, deaf/deafblind or others, may find it difficult to access written information. It was useful to learn different techniques to improve layout and presentation as well as identifying grammatical features and possible ways to change these.

Online Learning
This course was delivered through online modules - did you find this a good arrangement or would you have preferred a different mode of delivery?  Please comment either way:
I chose this course because it is online and I could learn at a time that suited me. It would be good to have some contact with other students - I know that students can be all over the country but maybe even just with a skype meeting would be useful - it's difficult to share ideas and make comments to online notice boards without any previous contact at all.

What other CPD training would you like the SSC to provide?
I have been on some of the one-day workshops about working with deaf people in schools - I don't work in schools but I was able to apply what I learned to fit my situations. I have found them to be really useful. I don't have any suggestions at the moment but will contact SSC if I have any thoughts at a later date.
