Testimonials

"I liked the structure and the flowing of the topics. It's been solid and coherent. Besides, the course provides a general display of the topics in new education meanwhile - with the teaching group work - we learn deeper some of the main points. I appreciate so much the experience as a student in a constructivist class."

 

"There were many aspects of the course that I liked, but I especially liked two specific areas. First, and surprisingly so, I enjoyed the team teaching. Although stressful, it was a stimulating activity, made even more so through the give and take of ideas among the team members. Secondly, we were exposed to some challenging and thought provoking issues in teaching. The intellectual stimulation was terrific."

 

"It’s a really hands-on course with high-quality materials. The professor makes complicated issues easy to work with and also keeps you focused on the core issues."
