Download Brief Overview of Training Agenda

“The 4MAT model of teaching expanded our capacities to teach outside of our learning styles, thus increasing our ability to reach a wider variety of student learning styles and ultimately deepen the learning experience for all of our students. Not unlike the process of spackling when preparing a surface for painting, 4MAT has enabled us to repair the “holes” and “cracks” in our teaching.”

Joan Nicolle Senft, Professor at Connecticut State University, College Teaching, 58: 19-27, 2010. Vol 80, No 7, July, 2005.

“Overall, their was high praise for the new format. Student’s commended the student centered approach, the substantial student involvement and engagement and the heavy emphasis on application of learning.

Pauline Butler – Coordinator, Diploma of VET Practice, Gordon TAFE

As Course Director, I was astounded by the student’s initiative in their own learning and the breadth and depth of class discussion.”

Amy Nowacki, The Cleveland Clinic
