Leading Adult Learning - Advanced

In 2020 Joan Dalton and Mel Stopford designed the inaugural Advanced Leading Adult Learning workshop series. We are pleased to offer this course face-to-face over 2021 with facilitators Mel Stopford and Deirdre McCracken. This course would benefit leaders and leadership teams who have worked extensively with Joan Dalton, David Anderson, Mel Stopford or the Leading Adult Learning team before, with a specific emphasis on the Learning Talk Books.
