Having now retired from leading workshops, Dr. Erickson and Dr. Lanning are dedicated to leaving a passionate cadre of people to carry on their life’s work.
Once a year Lynn and Lois join Tiffanee Brown and me in the Netherlands to certify a carefully selected group of teachers and educational leaders from around the world.
The Certification Institute is designed to prepare you to lead workshops and support schools with curriculum design.
Before I go any further allow me to introduce myself….
I am Rachel French and in 2012 I attended the Institute myself and have since become a full-time educational consultant.
I have led workshops in Europe, Asia, North America, Africa and in my home country of New Zealand.
I am the director of Professional Learning International, and together, Tiffanee Brown and I, now lead the Lynn Erickson and Lois Lanning Certification Institute each year.
I have co-authored two best-selling books, ‘Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction for the Thinking Classroom’ (2nd edition) with Dr. Lynn Erickson and Dr Lois Lanning and ‘Concept-Based Inquiry in Action’ with my colleague, Carla Marschall, who I met at the CBCI Institute back in 2012.
I have had opportunities to present at conferences, consult with schools, and work in more than 20 different countries.
I share this with you to illustrate what is possible once you become a certified trainer.
