Announcing … Fantastic lineup of Spring classes from Power Teaching students

Get the RSS Feed

In April, I ran another session of my Power Teaching class. Another extremely smart and enthusiastic group joined in intensive study of effective training design and development, and worked on real, live classes that they are launching this Spring. I love teaching this class for three reasons:

  • It is exceptionally energizing to share my passion for teaching with completely open and eager participants
  • They really worked their hearts out to apply great design to their classes, ensuring a superior learning experience for their students
  • They were extremely generous with each other, sharing ideas and feedback the entire two months we worked together

An important part of the course design was working on REAL classes launched to REAL people.

Out of the 85 participants, around 35 were ready to go live today. Others may showcase their classes in my end of year round up post on December 31.

Here is the amazing variety of classes they created. I would appreciate it so much if you take the time to see what they have developed, and if you feel drawn to learn from these amazing teachers, sign up for their classes!

If you want to put your name on the waiting list for a future Power Teaching class, sign up here.
