What do members say about Encore Learning courses?

The deep knowledge of the instructors and their ability to convey complex ideas with clarity are astounding. Many thanks to all who are involved in creating and delivering this class.

I expected a basic exposition of the book in question but received much more! It was truly a deep dive into the time, context and purpose of the author and included volumes of extra material.

I liked the immediacy of the information. It is a very relevant topic in our communities right now and it is very interesting to learn from the people who are actually making it happen.
