Scheduling a Workshop for your Class

If you would like a consultant to give a presentation or workshop in a class, please let us know one week prior to the day of the visit. You can email us at peerconsultation@berea.edu to set up an in-class workshop or presentation. Please provide specific details regarding the subject on which you would like us to focus, and provide any supporting information, such as syllabi, assignment, prompts, or examples, that would help us provide the best possible service to your students.

If you would like to bring your class to the Center for a workshop or presentation, please contact Jennifer Marciniak, Coordinator of Peer Consultation, to discuss scheduling options. You can reach her at x3233 or jennifer_marciniak@berea.edu.
