Consulting and Presentations


Leslie Owen Wilson ,  restrictions on usage

I have retired from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with exemplary service and was granted emeritus (emerita) status. However, I am still teaching 3 graduate courses for my former department online.  

Educational presentations: In addition to my online teaching I also do consulting and faculty development presentations on a wide array topics. During my academic career I did numerous presentations and training sessions across the US and in Canada to a myriad of diverse audiences and in many different venues. Please see the listings below for a partial listing of topics, or details in my online curriculum vita for credentials, titles, and venues. My expertise is best suited to consulting, talks, seminars, and large group presentations for teaching faculty, in both higher and public K-12 education. 

My presentations and expertise are also suitable for business audiences concerned with developing curriculum for advanced training, or those interested in effective educational models and methods of teaching. And I have expertise in creativity and can do presentations or consulting for those wishing to promote and foster creativity in the workplace, or interested in how best to support creativity in workers.

Also, I have done presentations for public groups wanting to learn more about current trends or challenges in education, or groups wanting to know or understand better today’s youth. My presentations on Millennials extend to conflicts in the workplace. 

Here is a partial listing of topics I can deliver or areas where I can consult.
