"Highly valuable. Intense. Expanding. A great workshop that pushed me to think in new ways about the project I brought to MACH. I also see strong applications to the other projects I am doing and to my broader work-life."

"Over my 20 years in education, this experience ranks in my top 3 of excellent workshops:densely informative without being overwhelming, lots of solid research-based materials from which you have gleaned and presented the most salient components.  The workshop kept moving at a pace that did not lull anyone into sleep: small chunks of useful information, followed by discussion questions with pertinent examples, capped with applicable case study or scenarios and lively mix of small/large group discussion.  I was never bored and felt I had been given solid, useful, research-based information.  This workshop is a finely crafted, well-honed professional development experience."
