The tutor  is engaging and thought provoking, although we have our opinions within our organisation and industry, she always manages to make us think about other sectors and the impacts in a thought-provoking way

 I really enjoy the style and debate of the workshops with Jackie. They are engaging and requires input from all whilst being personal.

Great use of interaction (quiz, small groups etc). Good engagement and reference to the learniing outcomes and assignment questions. Slides are organised so they are easy to follow and all info is available during the session (don’t have to wait for a full set of slides)
