MTC Works: “The Journey towards Mastery Learning”

MTC is pleased to introduce the publication, “The Journey towards Mastery Learning: The Steps and Stages to Mastery Credits and the Mastery Transcript,” coauthored by mastery learning experts Chris Sturgis and Katherine Casey, along with MTC’s Senior Director of Member Engagement Susan Bell.
