What people say about this workshop... 

- What a ​great introduction! I r​eally appreciate the offers for further support to discuss/refine a proposal. This makes me feel like you are in 'safe hands' if wanting to take it further and submit. 

- The very detailed template for conceptualizing the class was very helpful. I have developed classes before but this template will be a wonderful new tool. I always say I’m not a spreadsheet person - until I see something like this that is so useful!

- Thank you, Liz! I look forward to working with TLAN, and to building upon its fantastic offerings!
