Programs for Educators and Coaches

We provide introductory and advanced programs for educators and coaches who wish to apply Experiential Learning and the nine Learning Styles in their practice. Educators and coaches begin by defining their own learning preferences and exploring how learning flexibility will impact their practice.  Then, we focus on using the process of learning in professional practice and design, and on empowering your students and clients to learn how to learn.

Allow us to bring foundational programs to educational institutions where we can empower educators to become experiential learners and educators.
