How is this program different?
This program is a learning-by-doing program. When students practice coaching others, they are coaching real life in real time. It is the difference between role-play and real play. Following the Cooperative Learning philosophy and the idea of the self-initiated and self-paced learning, we have structured this program so that it is student-centric and flexible.
