I like how SENIA provides many other sources to read and to deepen knowledge. I also like to read posts from other teachers, from them I learn a lot.

I found the introduction to a variety of behavior observation tools really useful and I also appreciated theoretical overview of what is behavior and some guiding principles around how to think about Behavior.

I enjoyed the Discussion Boards. Having the opportunity to interact with other professionals and stakeholders was the most insightful and fulfilling.
