    Course format

    How is the class presented?

    We use a combination of on-demand video, audio, and print files.

    This course fully self-paced allowing you to learn on your own schedule. It's divided into chapters enabling you to pause and return as needed.

    Why on-demand?

    Because adult's brains are similar to a muscle, they need alternating periods of rest and recovery to synthesize new ideas and concepts. When learners receive information in short chunks, rest, reflect, then return is how adults learn best.
