This program not only helped me to fully understand the necessary structures & steps of building a curriculum, but it also helped to further improve my confidence levels as an instructor. I now feel I have a much larger repertoire of teaching strategies and resources that will help me to improve my effectiveness in the classroom and my abilities to create and support an inclusive environment. (…) I wish I would have done it sooner.

Shaun M. / Master Instructor Graduate

This was my first online course and although I was very nervous to try a distance learning program I was surprised at the freedom and flexibility this course allowed me. I truly recommend this course for anyone who is working in a learning environment or supervisory role where communication and facilitation is essential. This course has it all.
