LEXinars are online seminars for language professionals and others interested in the facts about written English. Delivered live in real time, these courses may include short films, lecture, chat interactivity, handouts, and hands-on activities. LEXinars are not downloadable or archived for viewing at a later time.
Below are listed LEXinars currently available. Please go to the LEX Marketplace and sign up for the LEXinar(s) you’d like to take. Once you’re signed up, you will be contacted for your scheduling availability. Current scheduling information can usually be found on my LEX Facebook page in the Events tab — you do not need to have a Facebook profile in order to view these public pages.
If you contact me with an inquiry, please ask an actual question in the comments section. Otherwise you waste your time and mine as we go back and forth and I interview you to figure out what your question is. Please check the schedule on Facebook, and please do not inquire about moving, changing, or negotiating schedules unless you’re registered: I only discuss schedules with people who have paid for the course. This is the only way I can keep up with communication and demand for the courses. Thank you!
Effective April 1, 2017: All certificates of participation / completion must be requested within two weeks of the last class session. All other requests will be processed for a small fee, just like transcripts. Otherwise I get a glut of requests in the spring when everyone’s CEUs are due. Please keep your own records; I am not responsible for acknowledging requests made after the deadline; lost certificates may be replaced or resent for a fee.
