Building Independent Typing Practices

Are you ready to challenge yourself to work on typing on a flat or mounted keyboard or while holding your own letterboard? The hardest part of independent typing practice is...the practice! Join REV's executive director Lisa Mihalich Quinn on Mondays at 2:30pm Eastern for a shorter class (30-45 minutes) that will introduce you to new ways to work on this skill that makes it feel like less work. Each week Lisa will model a new strategy, we’ll practice using it in class, and then your challenge will be to continue using that strategy to practice the rest of the week outside of class. Come build your toolkit for purposeful work on independent typing. You can SO do this!
