SOWING THE SEEDS OF CREATIVITY: Using Multiple Intelligence Theory for
On-the-Job Success

Presenter: Mindy Oppenheim

Mindy Oppenheim planted the SEED http://WWW.STAFFDEVELOPMENT.NET/
(Supported Employment Education Designs) in the spring of 1994 to provide
great (and fun!) training for rehabilitation, supported employment,
welfare-to-work, school-to-work transition and special education staff.

If you are a new or experienced employment specialist, teacher, trainer or
instructor, this experiential workshop will challenge the way you think
about intelligence, learning, communication and training. Participants will
apply state-of-the-art learning and teaching strategies (from the fields of
brain-based learning, Neuro-linguistics, multiple intelligence,
communication and super-learning) to assessment, motivation, behavioral
training, teaching strategies and fading. Participants develop teaching
strategies for individual learning styles.
