What Attendees Are Saying

"I enormously appreciated the professor giving me feedback in French — not that I understood every word on the first playing of her video critiques, but her feedback in French added realism and professionalism. Moreover, the professor was notably prompt in responding to my posted assignments. (As a professor emeritus, I admit that she set a high bar for grading student work.) Finally, my professor was extremely encouraging. The assignments seemed daunting, but her encouragement helped me accomplish the learning objectives. Thank you!"
Steve Raymer, Professor Emeritus, Indiana University Media School
"Great job, start-to-finish. Merci beaucoup. A bientôt!"
Cathy Middlecamp, Professor Emerita, UW–Madison
