Foundations of Dialogue Education

In-Person • Live • 4 Days

Online • Cohort • 28 hrs / 4 weeks


Our intensive introductory training offers a transformative approach to learning. In this hands-on training you will apply the principles and practices of a learning-centered approach to your own training with practical strategies to ensure meaningful, lasting impact.

Many individuals and organizations embrace the philosophy that learning should be practical and engaging, but few can put that philosophy into practice consistently. This training will change all that. People leave this course with a new way of thinking about learning and a newfound confidence in how to create meaningful learning opportunities for others.

  • crafted achievement-based objectives based on what your learners will DO with the content you teach
