Testimonials of SITE customers. 

I have utilized their online classes, live presentations, and consultancy services. In each case I was able to acquire new pedagogical knowledge and skills, practice scenarios in a safe environment, and receive expert feedback to enhance my teaching. The consultancy service is a particular source of ongoing help. An added benefit of the SITE is that as a tenure-track professor I am able to use my SITE activities in my teaching portfolio as evidence of my commitment to the teaching mission of Penn State.
