Do you want to get better at delivering your content every time you deliver it?
Do you ask for feedback, but rarely get anyone actually sending it in?
If you do get feedback, is it similar to every other piece of feedback you have ever received?
Are you stuck in your ways, and tend to recycle the same content over and over?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then let me explain why the
'Continuous Improvement' stage of Learning Resources Development is what will put the HEARTBEAT back into your work...
(Otherwise, there's a fair chance your content will not only bore you, but your students as well, you'll be known as that presenter who is STILL delivering that 'same old' content, and you won't receive or know how to implement stella feedback which you can GROW and LEARN from....)
What specifically is included in this course?
There is an introductory lesson (which is free below, no sign up required!), followed by 3 full lessons. Lessons 4.2 and 4.3 DO NOT have video tutorials, and there's a very good reason for that which you'll find out in the first lesson. There is also a bonus guest interview with an expert on evaluation and review in adult education.
ind out exactly whether you need each one, and follow specific links to the pre-reading materials which will give you a sneak peak into each of the lessons. If your interest isn't piqued by the introductory module embedded below, this course may not be for you!

Introduction: recognise why getting feedback, knowing how to deal with it, and reflecting on each delivery will make you into the kind of presenter people remember for all the right reasons. (you can access this lesson free, no sign up required, further down the page. If the Introduction doesn't 'grab' you, this course may not be for you!)
Lesson 1: guarantee you’ll get constructive feedback from your clients before, during and after they have taken their learning journey with you.
Lesson 2: deal with, and implement, all pieces of feedback, however good, bad or ugly they may be.
Lesson 3: improve on any teaching and learning experience (good or bad) so that you get better every time you deliver content.
Lesson 4: get the most out of the evaluation and review process as a commitment to best practise in learning.
Is getting the right feedback really that important?
No one wants to be THAT trainer. The one who is stuck in their ways, who recycles the same content over and over, who bores the socks off every group of people that comes before them to learn. We've all been there, in that classroom, thinking 'gee I'd love to give this guy some feedback but I'm assuming it will just fall on deaf ears so there's probably no point'... right?
In this course we're going to discuss how to continuously improve your content and delivery by evaluating, reviewing and reflecting. What this helps you do, is become better at delivering your content every time, as you learn and grow from the feedback that you get from your clients. Learn why Evaluation, Review and Reflection - the three key ingredients to continuously improving your content and delivery, are the keys to solid small business growth.

What happens when you have solid curriculum design?
Just a quick note, prompted by your newsletter, to let you know where the work you did with me has gone… this week your awesome planning tools were used to create a workshop for at-risk youth, helping them understand anxiety and depression so they can be empowered to disrupt the symptoms. Following your framework, Maria, led to 93% of these young people feeling they would handle the symptoms better in the future, and the youth coordinator said she’d never seen a better program. She was over the moon ♥
It was a group project for my tafe program (I’m switching careers, and doing a double-diploma in community services and counselling!) and there were many things that went into the success of the program (like amazing teammates) but Maria, I’m so grateful that I had worked with you and could push to build a workshop that focused on applied experience to cement demonstration and explanation. The effect on the students was massive, better than we could have hoped for. Our lecturer is falling over herself with compliments, and there’s talk of rolling the program out on a wider scale. Astounding!
So thank you. You’re an awesome educator, Maria, and an inspiration. I’m so pleased to know you =D
Maria, thank you! Working with you has been so much fun and so productive!
The way your brain can take complex information (also known as the 20 years of theory and experience in my head!) and turn it into a structure that makes total sense, is phenomenal. That you can then turn this into a visual blows my mind! Oh and you did this in what, three sessions? Amazing!
Through what you’ve taught me, I’ve been able to nail a structure for my coaching practice and the online programs I’m creating. I feel incredibly confident now that I’ll be able to share my knowledge and experience in a way that will truly inspire and help others.
Thank you, with all of my heart! You are brilliant and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to do the 4 PILLARS e-Course and work one-to-one with you.

Maria has this uncanny knack of helping your brain make sense of a ton of information. The time I spent in her group workshop was just what I needed to re-set my systemisation skills and help me continue to pull together all the stuff inside my head into a usable format. Maria is the person to go to help you get your ducks in a row so that you’re ready to chunk and package your know-how into something that works. Plus, she is great fun to work with and is so generous with her help and support. Thanks Maria.
