This was exactly the type of online learning which works for me - bite size in terms of time, and succinct in terms of theoretical knowledge. It answered lots of questions I had, debunked a lot of myths I had heard and helped me to learn with others in a well designed and informative way - it gave me a greater understanding of Lego Serious Play and has helped me to make decisions about what I will do in the future. Thank you
