Faculty & Teaching Excellence

Based on shared values, faculty members proactively engage in the same personal development process as our learners. Rather than attending an isolated workshop from time to time, our faculty also benefit from a systemically driven development process in order to deepen their shared ambitions to further develop multiple intelligences and weave systemic learning into education.
