Trainer Feedback

“My main learning objective was to understand how to translate face2face programmes into on-line in a way that still made it interactive and engaging. Having to plan an ice breaker and a small activity was a good way to think through how it could be done without making it to confusing/labour intensive for people, especially the activity on the last session.

Another point was to understand what could be done with the tech – and Gaelle was brilliant at that.

Thank you!”

“Learning from other participants in the group, design materials online and learning some of the interactive facilities.”

“Gaelle is open, supportive, knowledgeable and generous with her time. I always felt safe and supported in the sessions. Gaelle also made the learning fun (as did the group) and the time flew by in each of the sessions.”
