Teaching and training

I teach and train because it’s proven to be the most effective way for me to improve the information professions and help information professionals.

Does your workplace need to know something I know? Be able to do something I can do? Tell me about that, and let’s make it happen!

Anything you see in one of my syllabi can be turned into a workshop or seminar. My goal is to send participants home feeling competent and enthusiastic. When travel is unrealistic, I can teach online via Skype or web-based conference software.
