“LLC offers unparalleled training in course design, syllabus preparation, and unique collaborative learning methods, as well as technical support. As a retired professor with thirty + years of teaching experience, I wish I had been so lucky as to have been offered the kind of course preparation workshops that LLC provides throughout the year. This is not only a great support system for coordinators, but it ensures that the quality of the course experience for LLC’s members remains consistently high.”
