Yuma Union High School District Robin and Brian’s workshop re-inspired, validated, and re-directed our existing professional development team of mentor teachers to focus more clearly on designing professional development opportunities that foster immediate transfer for participants. They clarified the four roles of the staff developer, highlighted the critical components of the adult learner, and provided our team with specific, research-based strategies we can use on-site with our teachers to improve instruction and impact student achievement in our district.

Our four-day workshop “From Staff Room to Classroom: The Adult Learner and Change Theory” was fast-paced, completely interactive, challenging, and fun for our whole team – from assistant superintendent to brand new campus mentor teachers.These are masterful presenters who took time to get to know each of us and our roles and responsibilities within our team; tailored our learning to ensure our own “immediate transfer” of learning in our respective roles supporting teachers. Fabulous learning experience for all!
