Can’t Attend an In-Person Session?

That’s okay! We will offer synchronous online access to each in-person session, so all enrolled learners can participate from afar. While it is ideal to attend in-person for these hands-on lessons, we realize it is not always possible. All sessions will also be recorded and posted in the course site for later viewing.


Registration for fall is closed. We will offer this course again in Spring 2023.
