Human-Environment Interactions in the Great Plains – A Lecture

I was asked last week to give a lecture through Compressed Video, a technology used to teach non-online distance education classes. The reason? A preliminary job interview with a university in Wisconsin. It was about as nervous and awkward of an experience as you could expect. I don’t really give myself much chance of making it to the next stage. We’ll see, I guess.

Without further ado, here’s the lecture I gave… or at least the slides. I always improv what I say using the slides. Wish me luck!
