In August, 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 Fall. 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.
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.

YOUNG ADULT CAREERS
Choose Your Career in 90 days: Making The Best Choice For Young Adults
Presented by Donovan Grant
Young adults facing decisions about their future careers are often worried on a number of things. Two of the most concerning are firstly, making a choice feels like it’s a huge decision and they don’t want to get it wrong. And secondly, some young people just haven’t found their passion yet and they don’t want to end up like the many 40-somethings who they see work a 9-5 job and hate it! This class will help teens and young adults to realize that it’s okay to be uncertain and they can explore, discover and choose the right career path for them.
Thank you! Thank you!
It was great to get refresher training on good instructional design! I still have a while before my ideas translate into something great online, BUT this got me two steps closer. Thank you! Thank you!
I think good solid advice on how to buy a laptop is something that would be beneficial to most small business owners. Ideally I have one laptop for show, usually a smaller netbook, that I bring to meetings. Then I have a laptop that I use from my home office. Total cost for both was about $700 and I doubt there are many people who can sniff out that great a deal considering the impressive specifications of both units.
Thank you Pam for the sage advice you gave in how to create a meaningful learning experience for others and your generosity in creating a blog post especially for us.You rock as an educator and builder of community as your friend Desiree so wisely noted. I’m all for leaving empire building to the boys. It’s so passé !:)
Congrats to all my fellow PT’s!
I like the way how various topics have been selected, something out of the blue!
Thank you, Pam, for YOUR class! I love your step-by-step approach to learning. Thanks for helping me share what I love to do in my first class! 🙂 Congratulations to everyone for getting your classes shipped! Hoo-ah (Al Pacino style)!
