The Problem Solving Initiative has been the best professional development I've had so far. We focused on how we could engage students more in class. We started thinking individually then shared ideas in small groups. Rarely do you get a chance to speak about this type of topic in a diplomatic way - it was awesome to hear others' ideas and I learnt a lot. Since then, other teachers and I have continued to think about what was discussed that day and we're looking to make some big changes both inside and outside of the classroom.

Michelle Blanchet gave us a very interactive workshop on business models in education. She is without doubt a great expert in the education market. Thanks to her experience she could draw upon lots of practical examples and case studies that would enable the group to better identify market gaps and approach teachers and institutions.
