Program Design School


Join The Leadership and Training Studio and Erin Fischer for a two-day, hands-on, engaging and entertaining seminar. Erin will share how she wrote 90 programs in four and a half years and still has more ideas. (As a matter of fact, she has written eight new courses in three months.) You will learn how to write participant guides, facilitator guides, identify 40 learning methods and understand why you can’t write learning objectives until the end of your course! By the end of the two days, you will have a template for writing consistently and engaging material with ease. We are excited to continue to offer this outstanding professional development opportunity in a live virtual format using Zoom Video Conferencing.
