Foundations of Dialogue Education

from Principles to Practice



 Jeanette Romkema

Four-day course for teachers, trainers, facilitators and managers

Dialogue Education™ (DE) is a learning-centered system of teaching and curriculum design that isuniquely purposeful, engaging, and collaborative. Unlike traditional methods that push information onto passive learners, DE brings the learner into active relationship with both the content and the learning process. As a result, DE has the power to utterly transform the way you teach, and to also transform the way your learners absorb and retain content.


In this dynamic four-day course, you’ll directly experience the core concepts and practices of Dialogue Education. By the time you leave, you’ll have helpful tools and skills that will completely re-engage your passion and purpose for teaching, training or facilitating.


As an added bonus, Foundations of Dialogue Education is the first step toward becoming a Certified Dialogue Education Practitioner, should you wish to continue your professional development in DE.


Dialogue Education
Based on the insights and pedagogy of 
Dr. Jane Vella, Dialogue Education focuses on how adults learn best: by becoming active participants in their own learning experience. DE is highly collaborative and recognizes the rich resource of knowledge each adult learner brings in to the session so that this becomes part of the fabric of learning. The methods are proven, and the results are measurable and profound.


Who can benefit from DE?
Dialogue Education has been successfully used worldwide by thousands of individuals and organizations, including those in the non-profit, NGO, corporate, academic, religious, and government sectors.
