On this page I will attempt to link to work that I helped to create, either in most cases as part of a team, or solely by my own efforts. I have attempted some categorization and may change my mind on that later.
My first presentations date back to 2014, when I did some internal presentations around the first results of MOOCs, as well as a well attended Coursera Conference panel on how to deal with negativity in courses. I have also presented at several communication seminars. Those have lost most of their usefulness, but if you are curious contact me and I can provide them. Below some of my more recent presentations.
