Classroom programming consists of didactic lecture, case presentation, video and audio projections, question-and-answer discussion, small-group breakouts, role playing, and observation of technique/skill.
Prior to the initial class meeting, scholars will complete a Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment, a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.
