Hear what past participants had to say!

“[The workshop offered an] excellent balance of presentation, theory, practical application and hands on thinking tasks to help make PD topics accessible and relevant to my practice”

“All of it was great! I liked the hands-on opportunities to use WorldVuze and analyze questions and responses. I also liked the balance of pedagogy and instructional strategies.”

“I left with a fresh perspective on critical thinking, especially how it can be applied to our very youngest students. It was wonderful to interact with so many people who are passionate about creating true global citizens!”
