Learner-Centered Strategies that Improve Student Success and Retention
Ways I think the workshop could be improved? You can’t improve on perfect!
I have been looking for a workshop or course of this nature for the past three years. I can’t wait to attend the On Course II Workshop.
I arrived as a skeptic, but by the end of the first day I was converted. These strategies are practical and timely. I am looking forward to implementing them in my courses.
I have recorded 57 strategies (yours and the ones yours triggered)! I leave here full of love for my profession.
This workshop transformed my professional and personal life.
You have created a workshop that, in my 25 years of professional development, is by far the best experience I’ve ever had.
As a new teacher, I felt like a sponge, absorbing every bit of information I could. I highly recommend this workshop to new teachers so they get started “On Course.”
Since first attending one of the summer retreats in 1997, I’ve held nine On Course workshops for our college, and I plan to offer more.
I want to thank you for the best workshop I have attended in my 30-year teaching career. You have it right on the money!
I came away with a wonderful list of instructional activities.
