This class was surprisingly excellent. I say that because I wasn’t sure I was going to like “Zoom learning.” The presenters were thoughtful and capable. They provided usable, real-life examples of how strategies, techniques and tools can be used in the classroom, and in the “virtual classroom” that we’re all dealing with these days. Thank you for providing this class and the positivity that it provided.

~Deborah Severtson-Coffin

This class was just what I needed to prepare for online teaching into the fall. I liked the variety of sessions, from virtual teaching tools to social/emotional learning to trauma-informed teaching. The Zoom sessions were lively, and it was great to take time to discuss further in breakout rooms. Thanks so much, and keep up the good work!

This syllabus was GREAT. As an adult learner, I got what I needed out of this class. The assignments followed a super logical progression, and I was able to really enhance my instruction with the tools. I finished the class super quickly and didn't get teacher feedback until the end. I don't think that mattered too much because I didn't really have any questions. I was able to just direct myself, which I like. I love how you can take these classes with coworkers because it's a great opportunity to learn together. My coworker and I both took this class separately, and decided to do the Flipped one together.

I have been taking post-graduate classes for years. I think Brenda was an exceptional teacher. Besides the excellent academically-created course, her guidance, positive energy, patience, and support are something I appreciated. I want to take another class from her and recommend her without reservations to my colleagues. After 13 years of abusive and insulting principals I was demoralized and wanted to quit after 31 years of teaching. Brenda has relit the candle of hope for me, and I excited to use her material every day. I find it so valuable that I plan on writing some of her suggestions and strategies, And ideas and having them spiral-bound into a book to use everyday. Brenda is a blessing. I am looking forward to school and not dreading it as I have for the last 13 years. Sincerely, Cheryl A. Jackson
