All course content is intentionally designed and delivered by practitioners, thus ensuring its relevance to the day-to-day work. Expert faculty members include practicing educational facility planners, practicing architects, a state education department official and two internationally recognized experts in learning styles theory.
The program is comprehensive and spans from August to June with SIX, 6-week modules that address teaching, learning, planning, design, project management and assessment.
