Massage and A&P training materials


I wondered if you would be interested in my efforts to provide free support materials for tutors and their students undergoing A&P and massage training. Having completed massage training myself at an ITEC centre and having friends who are tutors I was surprised at the efforts students had to make to find resources in one place. The website is in its very early stages at the moment and is limited to A&P but with plans to include massage content soon. I wondered if you would be kind enough to have a look at the materials uploaded so far and let me know if you would find it useful for yourself or for your students as you deliver your massage courses. Any comments would be most welcome (positive or negative) http://www.massagecentric.co.uk admin@massagecentric.co.uk Thanks John Massage Centric Project

Looks excellent - a great resource and will also be useful for helping experienced massage therapists to refresh their memories! Well done. Chris

Thanks very much for your time looking at Massage-centric.co.uk and for all your useful comments and ideas. I will chew them over carefully. I take on board all your comments about security and nothing will get on this site without admin vetting it closely to maintain a good standard I am aware that other providers have a glossary but in our case it is an integral part of the way in which questions are posed in the Q-A Coop page. These questions provide users with A&P questions simlar (but not the same) as typical exam questions. From my experience in education, understanding content and how questions are put together and what the examiner is looking for is vital to success. A trial question you get wrong is only any use if you understand why it is wrong and you are also guided to the correct answer. It is also generally the case that casually looking at a bank of test questions is good for summative assessment but does not help much in the process of learning. In Massage-centric the aim is to provide students with a growing number of questions with automatic and detailed links to the glossary. My intention is that in formulating questions (in the style of the exam board) that students will learn the content and gain in understanding If you have time please register and have a look at the questions and let me know what you think Thanks again John
