The Brandman* webinars are a great way to indulge in a topic for a small portion of your time, that ignite your thoughts and practice. Having these webinars offered for free and on topics that are current and needed, even for experienced teachers, is a testament that Brandman* is aware of the trends and topics revolving around the education profession. I appreciate having the opportunity to attend and then have access to slides and the presentation to share with my colleagues who could benefit.
The Leading with Emotional Intelligence webinar was an excellent refresher on understanding EI. The facilitators made it so clear and easy to understand it was almost as if I was in a classroom and they were right next to me advising me one-on-one. The workshop was clear and concise and offered much more information than I expected!
These seminars are testaments to the dedication of the never-ending learning experience and commitment by Brandman University*. Although I graduated two years ago, they are still teaching and enhancing my education.
Excellent information for all level of teaching, preschool, K-12. Valuable content for both new and established teachers.
The webinar was extremely informative and it really made me reanalyze myself as leader to see where I stand and where I need to improve on.
Joining this webinar was very insightful and useful. Before this seminar, I was very hesitant about introducing project-based learning into my classroom. It will take some more planning, but I can see myself using this in the future.
This was a great webinar and I am grateful to have access to this kind of resource. Presentation was well delivered, great content and engaging speaker.
The webinar was excellent. The information presented has a lot of value and being able to relate it to real scenarios definitely made it easier to understand and relate to. Would recommend this webinar to anyone who is in the work environment and dealing with lots of different types of personalities.
