1. Web Survey1 - U Az - CCS

1. Thank you for taking this very brief survey.

It will help us to plan --- for consciousness-related Webcourses and Web Seminars from the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona. We are currently in the process of adopting audio/video conferencing software to run our small Discussion Groups for the courses. That makes everybody's experiences more personal and enjoyable.

At the end of the survey you will find a link (url) that brings you to free articles and an "iTunes U" podcast on "WebCourse: Positive Conscious Experiences" and our "Advanced Seminar" both starting on March 13, 2010. The Advanced Seminar will continue from the Fall term.

You can also find the free podcast using your iTunes program. Just search on "iTunes Store" for a few words like "Bernard Baars, Consciousness, University of Arizona." If you do not use iTunes you can find the audio podcast at the link given below.

Please feel free to leave your email address below. We will protect your privacy and always provide an "opt-out" if you do not want to receive any more mail.
