Katherine Rowell, Director of Sinclair's Center for Teaching and Learning has participated in Dr. Nelson's workshops. She writes, with special reference to the Friday session: "I DARE you to attend this workshop. If you have never been to a CTL event, this one will convince you that you have really been missing some very important ideas and teaching tools. If you have attended previous ones, this one will help you see further down the path to even more effective teaching. The three sessions as a group will be even more powerful."
