Learndash Platform

The Learndash platform is the online classroom and is accessed by logging onto my website.  Each week, on Wednesdays, I will post a video recording of the Monday evening session on Learndash. You will also find a copy of the workbook that follows this class.  Be sure to print out a copy of the workbook, as you will be taking notes and recording observations in the workbook throughout the class.  Handouts may also be posted from week to week on the Learndash platform, as appropriate, as well as the homework to be completed after each session.  The class’s Zoom link and password will be posted on the Learndash platform.
