I have just returned from Ulearn and am dissapointed I did not have the opportunity to see your Discovery Time presentation.My friends were very impressed. I did my teacher training in the 70's and have always continued to run a developmental programme on a regular basis. It is really good to know this form of teaching is still being practiced.
I would love to be a ble to get a copy of your presentation notes.
Keep up the good work.
