Feedback from the course educators

Watch Course Educator and Mentor, Melissa chat about the conversations and questions that have arisen from comments, discussions and learner activity throughout the third and final week of the course. We hope you enjoy it.

This is an additional video, hosted on YouTube.

A transcript of this feedback video is available from the Downloads section of this step.

In the See also section, you can also access links to research discussed in the video, for optional information.


We sometimes include papers and articles to help demonstrate some of the research in this area, but we do not expect you to purchase a subscription to read the full paper.

Hopefully, just reading the summary provided in the free abstract will be sufficient for those of you wanting to know more about the studies.
