About this seminar: This seminar takes 2 to 3 hrs. It is broken into small manageable sections of information.  All of the sections consist of brief reading, audio, video, and suggestions for your course design. There is also a handbook with tools from the training that you can download and use to apply what you learn.

You must take the quiz at the end to get credit, but the real test is how you apply the concepts to your course as appropriate.

So, please read the content, listen to the audio, watch the videos, and practice the concepts in your course.
