“It is always wonderful to be in a class with someone who is so well prepared and has the combination of knowledge and experience in the field they are teaching in. I will most definitely recommend “Collaboration Skills for Cross-Functional Teams”  to others. Prior to  taking your course there were two instructors at PSU that I found to be so well prepared and thorough that I would take whatever class they offered. Now there are three.  Thank you.”  – Chris Wilcox
