I thought I had a good understanding of the 4MAT model, but at the training I quickly discovered that I knew less than 5% of what 4MAT was really all about. I found that I was being challenged to really “think” and had loads of “light-bulb” moments. As a result I will revisit all of my courses to ensure that we use the model to create greater learning outcomes for our participants. Overall a great course, great program and great presentation.

Since investing our time in the 4MAT Mastering Training Design course, we have been able to turn one of our very boring, theoretical courses, into a dynamic, interactive one that has received very positive feedback from all who have attended it. As a result of rewriting the program, it was reduced from 4 weeks to 3, and is getting better results than the previous program. There is enhanced retention of the content with average handling time reduced by almost half for people attending this particular course. Thanks so much for giving us the inspiration and motivation to change the way we look at learning.

4MAT training has transformed our HSIE teaching. Staff who participated in the training now design stage based units using the 4MAT system and have noticed an amazing difference in the levels of student engagement. Parents are telling me that their children can’t wait to get to class!
Gail Charlier . Principal, Drummoyne PS, NSW

4MAT Training has changed the teaching of HSIE and science at our school. I now have a clearer direction for my teaching and plan every unit using the 4MAT system. I know my students engage with the content because all learning styles are catered for and they respond with enthusiasm to the variety of activities. You can really see them thrive!
Tessa Harris . Teacher, Drummoyne Public School, NSW

As TAFE teachers, who teach other TAFE teachers, we have found 4MAT to be an invaluable tool. It enables both teachers and learners to get more from the teaching and learning experience. 4MAT is a must for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of what makes their learners “tick”.
