 Joe and Dave. This is my initial outline for the two days we discussed. The start, end and lunch times are based on a "typical" school day. I don't know what time you typically start and end nor how much time you usually give for lunch. Feel free to make any changes. We can use this wiki to work out the details of our time together. I also plan to use it as a living document and growing resource throughout the two days. Make any changes you like here and also feel free to leave messages for me embedded in the text. I will be emailed automatically with any changes you make. You can be informed of any changes I make by clicking the "Notify me of changes" button when you log in. This only needs to be done once. -- Cheers, Darren.
