You’ll explore six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science.
You’ll be able to apply these principles every time you train, teach, instruct, or coach others. You’ll also experience and collect dozens of interactive instructional strategies that you can use with any topic and any group of learners.
You’ll use the 4Cs Instructional Design Map
