Curriculum Design Help & Coaching

15


15 per hour Virtual OK

I will help you brainstorm your class or workshop at any point in the process from brainstorming, developing to proofreading.

You may want to check our my tip sheet for brain based pedagogy for 5 simbi here: https://simbi.com/martin-dooley/brain-based-teaching-tips

My experience is pretty varied from one-on-one professional training in food service, languages & computer use to group orientation slide shows and conference presentations, occasional situations like an educational trivia game show, all often improvised out of necessity. Some modifying of canned curricula to things developed from scratch with preparation time or without. Topics have ranged from sex, STDs, emotional support, sustainability, social justice, anti-racism, disability, meditation, change advocacy.

Probably the two best things I can offer would be helping you think outside of your own context (outside the box) and helping to prevent people from getting bored (using brain research based tips for teaching).

Training & Qualifications


I have been a trainer my entire adult life and creating my own curricla for 30 years. I have hundreds of hours of time teaching, leading workshops, facilitating meetings in a wide variety of settings and topics.

I have taught at many retreat centers including Esalen.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Marty hooked me up with some fantastic brain hacks for helping me to finally get some long-delayed projects done! I have a habit of tripping over my o...wn feet and focussing on irrelevant details. Marty's ideas have me feeling uplifted, inspired, and able to "just do it." Looking forward to working with him again!show more

I am the worst. Marty was there ready. He sent me materials and was communicative from the first message when I proposed a deal. I lost track of time ...at work and missed our appointment. I hope he will give me another chance and I’m completing this deal because he did it was my fault that I didn’t show up. Sorry about that! show more
