Instructor Development Course

Develop New Skills


Here at Matrix we believe in Training and Education, not Instruction. The point being, unlike instruction, which is essentially unidirectional and provides no guarantee of learning that which is ostensibly being “taught,” education when effective, is bi-directional. From the educator’s perspective it is teaching, from the student’s perspective it is learning. It is therefore that our courses are provocative, allow for plenty of discussion time, and employ a large social element. Presentations might be given on a napkin, opinions and ideas are welcome, and debriefs happen outside the class room in a relaxed and informal environment.
