Gone are the days of lengthy chapters that are extremely difficult to fit into your customised curriculum flow.

Fundamentals is structured in small, modularised lessons. This modular approach offers more flexibility, as it relates to curriculum planning and placing the necessary lessons within a program’s learning path.

When incorporating Fundamentals into LAB, the student experience comes to life. Each of these small modules can be placed within the student’s learning path and assigned to a class. Within the modules are multiple activities that will:

  • Allow for collaboration
  • Inspire deeper thinking
  • Provide support for multiple learning styles
  • Reinforce need-to-know information
