Feedback
The lectures were hard to stay focused on due to the same level of tone and speed throughout the whole recording. One week's lectures (7 or 8) was from 2018 and they gave information about a particular disability support service that "isn't available until next year, it doesn't come out until 2019" which was disappointing
Recommendation
Some of the lectures were re-recorded this year to update content. It was not possible to re-do this every week. This unit will not run in the new Bachelor of Nursing in 2021.
