  • 4. Constraints • I don’t know how specific modules might use them • I don’t know how they might be developed • If I list everything I don’t know we’ll be here forever......
  • 5. Process • I’ll show some slides explaining the background –(Death by PowerPoint – you know it makes sense!) • Then we’ll play with some online stuff • We’ll create a resource for reference • Or, if the connection falls over, I’ll try to explain things using the medium of interpretive dance
  • 6. The online stuff • Will be on my Google account as I don’t have access through TutorHome yet
  • 7. • This is the graveyard shift – and it’s 90 minutes (I’ve had relationships which didn’t last as long!)
