About This Project

2008 Chief Learning Officer Silver Award winner and CUBIC Best Leadership and Executive Development Program Award winner!

This program included loads of experiential learning – all with meaningful learnings that stuck around afterwards. We went on field trips (yes, just like when you were a kid). We made messes in the kitchen – too many cooks can be a good thing! And we even trained with Olympic athletes at the Olympic Training Center. During our last iteration, we also converted all learning materials to be deployed via an online learning portal accessed by iPad. And we took advantage of all the the iPads had to offer by leveraging apps for learning activities and journaling.
