With over twenty years experience teaching in both academic and real-world settings, Mark Eppler understands how adults learn. In fact, he is one of a handful of teachers at Indiana University to earn the prestigious
Robert Richey Award for Teaching Excellence. His teaching style, which he calls the
I3 Learning Model, consists of the following:
Provide participants with original and meaningful
information they can apply immediately to their jobs. Blend best
practices with new and innovative approaches to stimulate growth.
From the onset, give participants ownership of the
program by incorporating their ideas and experiences. The best programs
have the fingerprints of participants all over them.
Create an environment where participants are self-motivated
to use the concepts learned. All the information in the world remains nothing more than potential if never applied.
