Our philosophy is to offer students a choice of learning formats and have all formats include multiple modes of learning. All courses include a high percentage of hands-on and/or self-study activities and a very small amount of one-way lecture by the instructor, to provide students the opportunity to learn by doing and watching and not just listening.
All of our courses are offered as both public open enrollment and private classes. They can be delivered either online or in a classroom, and some are available as self-study. We provide similar experiences in online and classroom deliveries. The instructor shares his/her display in one case on a projection screen and in the other via web conferencing, but in either case students use the same materials and schedule and largely have the same overall learning experience.
