quotation marks“I really enjoyed this course! It was very informative and supports my philosophy of what education should be. I want to thank you also for the thought-provoking exercises.....WOW! Organizing my thoughts and putting my plan on paper really helped me visualize how I was going to utilize this in my classroom. I cannot wait to put my plan into action and share it with my colleagues:)"

Deborah Vichos

quotation marks“This was a great course. I enjoyed thinking about how to use more design challenges in my classroom. It was also real in letting me think about my "not-to-do" list. I feel like this can help me when I get back into my non-virtual classroom as well as giving my students optional tasks for home learning and design.”
