"This course was very easy to navigate through, and thoroughly covered the topic of appropriately utilizing a chaperone. I also liked the variety of tools used to cover the various topics, such as videos, vignettes, etc. rather than just reading slides.....this made it more interesting as well as providing a better/relatable and more understandable visual.
