A variety of instructional formats are utilized, including lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, Internet, videos, web sites, and writings, with the goal of motivating the learner to self-reflect and analyze how new/enhanced knowledge and skills can be applied to improve his/her future educational practices.
