We believe strongly that in order to learn, there is no better teacher than experience. This is why we hire the best instructors - experts in the field with a proven track record of scientific and clinical achievement; propose interactive and innovative workshops - complete with hands-on workshops where you get to try out with real instruments the procedures you just discussed.
Whether or not you believe exactly the numbers in the "Learning Pyramid" shown below, no one will refute that this progression is intuitively correct. At any one of our course, we propose instruction which is both active and passive, visual and auditory, as well as provide instant feedback via electronic voting or expert interaction. There is no disputing that this level of engagement from the participant is far greater than at any other typical conference, and is generally noted in after-course report as one of the greatest strength of our educational curriculum.
