Courses and Workshops
Below are workshops and courses I have offered in a variety of circumstances.
All of my workshops and courses are interactive and practical. My teaching style is to draw out what the participants already know and to put order to that information.
These examples vary from 1-hour workshops to 3-credit hour semester courses. Let me know what you need and we'll adapt the content together to meet your needs.
