Teaching Strategies

As busy practitioners, we recognize that our faculty do not have the flexibility to attend face-to-face workshops on a regular basis.  To continue your journey in developing or expanding your skills in a teaching area, we offer online guides for self-study and reflection.  As you explore an area of interest, review our philosophy, suggestions and/or references.  After some thought, contact us for a consultation to expand your skill in that area.
