Dear IWCC faculty, a note on getting in touch. You can reach me by posting a comment on this post, and I'll get an email notification. The comment won't post automatically, I review them first. If you don't want your query to be posted, just write "please don't post" and include your email. I'll answer you privately. If you have a question or thought that you think others will benefit from seeing addressed, then I'll approve your comment and will post a reply.

Today's Agenda
