“Muppet Magic: Jim Henson’s Art” at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Theater Arts Department

“Oprah Winfrey, The Tycoon” at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, History Department

“Getting Dressed” at Princeton University, Freshman Seminar

“e-Bay for Seniors – Selling on e-Bay & Consumer Protection” at Raritan Valley Community College, Business Program
