"Jeg lærer bedst, når jeg får lov til at prøve det. Når jeg får lov til at sidde og sige: denne her måde tror jeg vil være rigtig god, det tror jeg selv ville fungere, og så få lov at prøve det, og måske finde ud af at det gjorde det ikke alligevel"

Halvmaraton er en ny variation til de lærere som gerne vil fordybe sig i færre af de praktiske opgaver.

Det er ikke uden grund at forløbet kaldes en maraton. Det er et langt, krævende forløb og det kræver grundig forberedelse og vedholdenhed at gennemføre. Men til gengæld er oplevelsen stor og forløbet gør det nemmere at variere sin undervisning fremover.
