  2. Students FLIP for Movie Making with DEN STAR Jennifer Brinson

    Become a STAR http://tinyurl.com/2dabg9h Something DEN STARS learned at the PETE&C DENPreCon 2009 and the DEN Summer Institute 2010 is paying BIG dividends, really taking us beyond the textbook.

  3. PA DEN STARS Shine at KTI Summit 2010

    Several PA DEN STARS were present and very productive at the KTI Summit 2010 at Bucknell University.

  8. Sharon Kinney on SAS: No Longer Shooting Darts in the Dark!

    The most difficult decision, after you commit to a conference or workshop, is selecting what you will attend.

Guess that’s why I always enjoy seeing Jennifer Brinson‘s name on a workshop, webinar, or conference. It […]
