Speaking

I enjoy speaking and presenting on a variety of topics, including student learning assessment, community college libraries, metacognition, literacy, critical librarianship, information literacy, online teaching, young adult literature, memoir, feminism, and LGBTQ+ issues.

If you have questions about my past presentations or if you have a speaking opportunity that you think would be a good fit for me, please contact me: ztrope / gmail.
