This spring I will once again be teaching 4 certificate courses at the University of Toronto’s iSchool Institute. The iSchool Institute is the Faculty of Information’s continuing education arm at U of T, and offer two certificate programs in Records Managment: Records Management Fundamentals and Records Management Practice.
