Our design team at Integral Ed has designed over 20 custom-curricula, 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.
David started Integral Ed in 2011. He supports Integral Ed’s team to deliver our best work for clients and their learners. David is proud of Integral Ed’s work helping young adults explore and pursue careers that stoke their fire.
