Advanced Learning Design

Advanced Learning Design is a 3-day workshop which builds on the principles and practices of Dialogue Education™ introduced in Foundations of Dialogue Education, and delves more deeply into the technical aspects of curriculum design, communication, and learning styles. You and the other participants will each bring a learning design—either one you’re already working on or one that you plan to create—and present it to the other participants for feedback.

If you are a nonprofit, in the field of education, faith-based, or otherwise have need, we usually can provide a discount. We also recognize the value in partner learning, (2 or more people from an organization attending the same course).   We are normally able to offer a discounted rate, in these situations.
