The material I learned related directly to my work. I was able to immediately apply the information to my lesson planning and delivery. I really enjoyed the program and would highly recommend it to others.
The courses are very organized and clearly addressed all the skills, techniques and knowledge that every instructor should have. The courses helped me to effectively deliver and share my expertise as a top notch instructor.
The courses were all very relevant and useful. The instructors were all very passionate, organized and very accessible.
The courses were well organized. I personally found the Evaluation of Learning and Instructional Strategies to be the most useful. The instructors were very professional. I highly recommend this program.

The courses are relevant and useful and helped me create better lesson plans and better assessment tools. This program is not to be taken for granted. It helped me keep abreast of the times. I’d do it all again!
