As you can probably tell from the team makeup, we don’t just talk about how you should teach. We actually practice it. During this course, you’ll get to experience and learn about various approaches you can use to enable learning.
We’ll show you some of the ‘tools’ in our toolbox. You’ll then have the opportunity to choose and apply the tools you’ll want to use when creating learning experiences for your own learners.
