Training is comprised of a blend of teaching-learning approaches including narrated and read-only power point presentations, hard copy reading material, workbooks, practice-based templates, videos, learning exercises, practical experiential sessions and quizzes. The larger the course, the greater the range of teaching-learning approaches.

All courses include narrated presentations which are particularly appreciated by participants with dyslexia, but valued by all. Many practice-based examples are provided, which are valued for bringing VdTMoCA theory and the levels of creative ability alive.
