WHY WITH PROFESSOR G?
Some students think I'm the Oracle (from The Matrix). I have worked with over 1000 students, spoken to groups of 300 to 2000 students in the U.S., Norway, and China, and I have some practical tips and some great stories to share about empowering students to transform higher education.
