Our Model

Intentional Emergence is based on the merging of two strong forces: instructor intention and emergent content. First, the instructor brings intention in the form of best practices, researched outcomes, and strong lesson plans. Then the instructor adds a willingness to trust in the emergent content and uses case-in-point strategies as catalysts for learning that can be transformational.
