Marta & Dialogue Education

Marta participated in her first Dialogue Education learning experience in April of 2001 with Peter Perkins. She quickly realized how deeply she resonated with this learning-centered approach, and how it provided an intentional framework for creating consistently effective learning designs. She completed the requirements to become a Certified Dialogue Education Teacher (CDET) in December of 2002.
