I want to thank the instructional designers  for doing an excellent job in putting together the EdD’s Mind, Brain Science, and Learning Core Course.  I have enjoyed the  discussion groups which allow for intimate and consistent interactions with colleagues from a wide variety of backgrounds. The high quality of media ( videos and presentations, etc.) presented to us is impressive.  A special thanks to the faculty at the School of Education for the hard work they put into  this program – it is truly gratifying experience to be part of this cohort.
