Join Deborah Creed who’s approach is…

My approach is to use power point slides to support my presentation with a detailed discussion on the key parts of each of the module.  Candidates are encouraged to ask questions both during the presentation and between presentations (via email).  I try to identify real life and current examples to apply the topic concepts to , this helps to provide a deeper understanding of the topic.  There is opportunity to engage in chat sessions where candidates are able to interact with others in the group and myself.  I aim to go through each topic in depth and then provide a follow up review of each of the topics.  Working through exam techniques and sample questions provides further opportunity to fine tune knowledge of the topic.
