“I took this course from Jason on adult education, and it was a phenomenally useful experience. Jason gave me a strong theoretical background for teaching adults, and also a huge arsenal of tools and strategies for engaging adults in the classroom. I'd recommend this course to anyone who needs to teach adults."

- Simon Tanzman- Corporate Trainer

“Just wanted to thank you for the very helpful and informative Video Training these past two days. Although I have taught adult users for > 13 years at Midlands Tech. and have many student 'peace and war stories' of my own, I feel like I learned many helpful tidbits of information that will be so very useful as I train the LMC staff in the future. Thanks again."
