1. You have an idea

You see something out in the wild or at a conference that you want to try, but need some support. Or, you're not sure what you want to do yet, but you're ready for a challenge.

2. You get in touch

You can reach out to us in a number of ways; If you prefer to learn as a part of a group, you can attend an upcoming workshop. If you'd prefer a one-on-one consultation, you can choose someone with similar interests or relevant skills and reach out to them. If you're still not sure what you need, you can attend our open office hours.

3. We create a plan

We work with you to map out learning objectives based on your course goals, connect those with existing technologies or create new ones that don't yet exist, then support you in implementing them in your class.
