In-person learning opportunities

In-person PORTL workshops allow you to practice your teaching skills with another human as the learner. You also get to play the role of the learner, which gives you more insight into how people and animals learn.

Each workshop consists of lectures, PORTL exercises, and discussion. You’ll learn about behavior principles and techniques that will help you create optimal learning situations when working with both people and animals. You’ll also learn foundational skills that will help you problem solve and think more creatively when designing teaching solutions.

Workshops are limited to a small group of attendees to allow ample time for discussion and questions and so that participants can receive individual coaching during the shaping exercises.
