"The means is dialogue, the end is learning, the purpose is peace." ~ Founder Dr. Jane Vella
You’ve experienced first-hand the transformative value of using Dialogue Education™ (DE) in the workplace, in the field, or in the classroom. Now you can deepen your knowledge of DE even further, and gain a direct and practical benefit: the successful redesign of a specific learning event you have planned – either a current training design or something brand new.

Course content for Advanced Learning Design is based on the field research and teaching found in Training through Dialogue (Jossey-Bass, 1996) and Taking Learning to Task (Jossey-Bass, 2000), both by Dr. Jane Vella.
During the workshop, your learning will be guided by a facilitator who will model and teach the principles and practices of Dialogue Education through a series of learning tasks. These tasks will stress accountability and relevance, and will directly employ the knowledge you’re learning. Collaboratively (in large and small groups) and on your own, you’ll work through a range of lively and creative exercises to inspire you, within a workshop that provides structure for participation and observable results.
Advanced Learning Design is also offered as a customizable, in-house course for your business, institution, or organization. We’ve taught in many languages and are happy to try to accommodate your language preference. Please contact us to explore the possibilities for working together.
Class size is limited due to participative, learning-centered approach.
