Pam and I spent an intensive week at the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) Summer Training Institute last week. Held on the beautiful campus of Claremont McKenna College, we found ourselves in classrooms 8 or more hours a day. I think we both feel closer than ever to the college experience; long lectures, dorm rooms, bike rides, backpacks, and cafeteria fare helped us feel like real students. What did we take away? There is so much information to share.
