One of the very few seminars with actual, hands on participation and resources, instead of lecturing on how to avoid lectures.
I really enjoyed the seminar and it helped learn a lot and I can’t believe that happened within a short time.
Dianne was a fantastic facilitator and I love all the tools we can use in classroom and teach other teachers at school.
It’s more practical, easy and cheaper to participate in a seminar from home. In this way, more teachers will participate since the schools will cover the expenses for more teachers.
