Learn Something New on Your Schedule

Susan has nearly 20 years of teaching experience, including the creation of six semester-long courses and 25 module-type class projects. We specialize in working with diverse audiences, from community members to professionals to first-generation college students in a variety of fields. Special expertise in hands-on, experiential learning and in interactive sessions.

Discussions were so interesting, the readings were all looked at critically, ideas were tossed around and shared. Possibly my favorite class yet.
