OUR TEAM

Our design team has designed over 50 custom learning programs and courses for Integral Ed clients, led the preparation of over 10,000 new teachers, and taught in formal education settings from early-childhood to post-secondary college.

 

Typically, our design teams are led by an Instructional Designer and managed by a Project Director. Each curriculum design team is turbo-charged by content-specialists from our network, recruited and selected for the needs of any project.
