Enhancement to your expertise


Content and supplementary material


How will you use what you have learned today?

I am not sure - will have to reflect on it.
I will adapt most of what I have learned today to suit my own client group.
For more ideas to use in our music room at RNIB Pathway with adults with LD and VI.
Music linked to drama with MDVI pupils.
I will use some of the demonstrations and ideas in my own practice.

Clarity of presentation


Pacing of course/event


What was best about the course/event?

The teaching and engagement with the children and young people - energetic, lively, creative. Most enjoyable.
The enthusiasm, responsiveness and joy of the children in responding to their teachers who were clearly committed and enjoying what they were doing.
Watching the pupils do their stuff and the enthusiasm of Karl and Louisa which was inspiring.
Sleepshade activity. Pupil observation.
Observing the young people in their classes. Practical exercises using VI glasses.
Class observation.

What, if anything, could have been improved about the course?

It would have been useful to have had a clearer idea of the level of ability of the pupils.  Although we saw a wide range of ability - the age and range of those I teach is quite different (less able with no language).

Any other comments regarding the course?

Perhaps it was the title that was a bit misleading - not specific enough.
Do more.

Latest info on technology for adapting materials and access technology (portable).
Use of ICT in music.
