Unmatched Instructors and Resources
All online courses include a variety of high-quality training materials such as videos, activities, quizzes, and example lessons. In the case of instructor-led online courses, the participants stay in regular contact with the course instructor, get valuable feedback, and are given suggestions for further skills and lesson development.
We use an online learning platform for these courses, but there is an opportunity for customization through one of our preferred educational solutions (Google Classroom or Microsoft Teams) for programs on a larger scale.
Face-to-face and virtual certification workshops are hands-on, interactive sessions where teachers can learn how to use classroom software, get inspired by the instructor and other participants, and work on specific materials that can be used in their classrooms.
