Our Students Say...

"This course taught me how to offer multiple ways for learners to express themselves when it comes to assignments. It even took a little prodding of my own self to submit an 'alternative' assignment."

"It was rather freeing not to feel chained to the ‘typical’ form of assessment that has followed me throughout our educational system."
