Comments from Training Participants

“The information gleaned from this course has potential for improving learning across our university system in a way that could improve student persistence to a college degree. Persistence to a college degree is a top priority of the university system’s strategic plan.”

“I found this course to be very well organized and informative. The combination of lecture, blog and 4MAT website reached all our learning styles and demonstrated how easy it is to incorporate them into our instruction!”

“It is so important for teachers to understand their classroom habits —  namely their strengths and weaknesses around the 4MAT learning cycle.”

“Traditional instruction is at the bottom of the wheel, and there is no attempt to connect the student to the information and now way for students to extend what they are learning into their lives.  Creating lesson plans around the 4MAT wheel helps teachers better account for these elements and this has a very positive impact on student participation and enjoyment.”
