So How Did People Like the 2020 Online Summer Festival?

“Thank you for providing this excellent course. What I have learned during the course will help me navigate through this school year a lot smoother!”
“The overall set-up of the on-line course was well done. The sheet with zoom links worked very well, and got me into all the sessions easily. The optional forums were a great addition. I have wanted to take courses with the RSC for years, but due to the cost of flights, accommodation and course fee, I haven’t been able to do so. This on-line course has been truly a gift, as it was affordable and logistically doable. I really hope that in the future this option will remain possible for teachers living far away from Ontario. If there is an on-line course option next year, I would love to register again (for the next grade intensive).”
