Thank you so much for the energy and thought you’ve put into this rich online digital learning course. You provide excellent resources and ideas, even for an English teacher like me who thinks they are already savvy enough when it comes to teaching media critical literacy and persuasion. I thoroughly enjoyed your lectures.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. However, it is in your best interests to complete the course within a realistic time frame (eg 7 -14 days) so that you can then be assessed and rewarded your 5 hours accredited Professional Learning.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own, until you complete the course and have been granted your 5 hours Professional Learning.
What if I'm unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund. You will be required to show that you at least attempted to complete some of the course materials. The 5 hours PL are forfeited once a refund is granted.
What happens when I click the 'buy' or 'enrol' button?
As soon as your payment has been processed (which can be instant or take up to 15 minutes) you’ll receive an email from me with your login details. You’ll then be able to log into the member’s portal straight away and access the course materials. Haven’t received the email? Drop us a note to [email protected] and we’ll get you sorted.
How much time do I need to complete the course?
You can immerse yourself in the course and complete it in one sitting if you like. It will take at least five hours. But life can be busy and a full immersion might not be possible. That's why I've broken the sessions down into easy-to-digest modules, so you can revisit the course several times and complete each module at a time that suits you.
Are there any tech requirements I need to complete the course?
All you need is reliable internet connection and you’re good to go, on any device. You will need to download the PDF worksheets for each module and save those to your desktop before completing them.
When do I receive my 5 hours PL from TQI/NESA?
Once you complete the course you will need to email your completed worksheets to [email protected] (don't worry you'll be reminded of this during the program again). All going well and pending the standard of your submission, you will receive your 5 hours PL within 7 days of completing the program. You will be notified of this via email.
I've never done an online PD course before. Will I be able to communicate with the provider if I have questions?
Absolutely. This online program offers you the best of both worlds. You can complete the program in a time and place that suits AND ask questions directly to the course provider. You can email [email protected] or add your comments and questions directly in the comments section of each module in your private log in area.
What format is the program delivered in?
This Media Literacy program is a self-paced online program delivered via 4 structured modules. Modules consist of a combination of videos, teaching concepts and content, case studies to demonstrate real life examples, downloadable worksheets and quizzes to test your knowledge. This is an interactive program with lots of opportunity to engage with the provider with any questions or feedback you may have.
