    • “I found the program very valuable, particularly the resources and concepts I was introduced to. In many ways the classroom time felt like a primer for continued learning and an introduction to experts in the field. The scope…introduced [me] to many concepts with enough information to help me decide where I needed or wanted to focus my time on additional learning. I also appreciated the accessibility of the online program which enabled me to attend from Winnipeg. It has really opened up a world of learning opportunities for me. I found the practicum piece highly valuable to reflect on my learning and to increase the depth of my learning. For me, the practicum was a key piece of the program.”
