then register here…

They charge $50 for the course plus $10 if you don’t already own “Multiplying Light and Truth” by Stan Rowland. I did this course a few months ago. If you have time and you’re self-directed, there can be some great discussions with your peers. It’s mainly a “read and discuss” kind of approach. The course organizers would be the first to admit that an in-person CHE course is more engaging, but if you can’t get to one of those, it’s great that they’re making this format available.
