MKZ & Dialogue Education

Marta participated in her first DE learning experience in April of 2001 with Peter Perkins. She quickly realized how deeply she resonated with the dialogue approach, and how it provided an intentional framework for creating consistently effective learning designs. She completed my requirements to become a certified dialogue education teacher in December of 2002.
