Curriculum Design Help & Coaching

20


20 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 a bachelors degree and have attended thousands of hours of classes, workshops & conference sessions.

I have taught at many retreat centers including Esalen.

Availability & Preferences


My schedule is pretty flexible especially more than a couple days out. You can book a time slot with me here in green: mbdo.youcanbookme.com

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

Matthew received hour of Curriculum Design Help & Coaching from Marty
Jan 22, 2018
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

About Marty D

I've worked in the nonprofit sector most of my adult life with about ten years on the tech side. I've helped to organize and run sessions for two national nonprofit tech conferences. In addition... to being a native speaker of American English, I speak Spanish & French fluently. I have previously been conversational in Russian and German and know a couple hundred words in another half dozen languages. I have extensive experience as a trainer & workshop facilitator over the last 30 years in a wide variety of topics: politics, emotional support, health education, pain management, sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. I've moderated online discussions and taught at conferences & retreat centers. I really enjoy seeing light bulbs go off over people's heads. I follow a paleo ketogenic diet mostly based on the ideas of Dr Patricia Wahls. There are the usual diet charlatans out there but she is an MD following the latest nutrition science. I like direct authentic honest constructive feedback and true specific believable compliments. I love to hike, sing, play improv games & chess, and read sci-fi.show more
