Many of my lectures can be customized as guest lectures or workshops for your college courses. I am happy to map these to your assignment or course learning outcomes.
Instructional lectures are one-hour in length, including 15 minutes of Q&A time, and can be delivered with our without internet access.
Hands-on workshops can be tailored between two-to-three-hours in length, with plenty of time for your staff, society, class, or conference attendees to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty. A strong reliable internet connection is required.
Online courses can be delivered via the learning management system of your choice. My courses include: written and video lectures, weekly discussions, weekly activities and graded assessments for each set of lessons, and 1-3 major graded assignments mapped to your programs’s core competencies.
