“The OSI pedagogy courses have provided me with tools to construct individualized modules for my students based on the OSI curriculum. This has kept the direction of the lessons focused and organized.

Ory’s IPDS model has brought efficiency and effectiveness to the learning process. I have found it helpful in my own practice for learning as well as retaining. 

The interactive nature of the OSI courses with Ory and Maria gives it the feel of colleagues with a level playing field helping one another, which makes learning attractive and winsome. Maria and Ory make a great team in presenting the materials. Their passion and kindness are evident throughout our time together.”
