“If I can’t convince [my co-instructor] that something is valid then I probably shouldn’t be teaching that [technique] anyway.” — Melody Lauer


John is stressing JackJack out with more time travel. John talks to Melody Lauer about curriculum development and some of the challenges instructors face when wanting to branch out and create their own curriculums. Melody gets to turn the tables on John and ask him what it was like to work on his first curriculum as well as some of the difficulties along the way. Where do newer instructors go wrong when developing their classes? What kind of instructor development is out there for civilians? What is missing in modern instruction? All questions pondered on this week’s episode.
