The Engaging & Empowering Learners Workshop is our most popular workshop. In this three-day virtual workshop, you'll learn proven learner-centered strategies for empowering students to become active, responsible and successful learners. These strategies represent best practices from innovators in fields such as: active learning, psychology, learning technology, cognitive neuroscience, learner engagement, peak performance, and human effectiveness.

Our virtual workshops are intended to showcase engaged learning (and will be delivered through Zoom). We will demonstrate best practices, resources and suggestions that can be used in synchronous Zoom sessions to promote learner engagement, and will offer suggestions to attendees to enhance their Zoom experiences.
